Are milder things (such as wishing their coffee to be always cold) okay?
Apparently some people still aren't listening so you'll have to go in and police those posts.
Also ban users who use **usernames** like "Kill_the_Donald" or "Kill_the_Obama", etc...etc...
After all, why should usernames be exempt and not comments. Right?
ITT: People encouraging or inciting violence
Can we get a megathread for net neutrality? It seems like the entire sub is a anti-trump pro-net neutrality circlejerk. If not that's cool, I'll just unsub and find another that wants to actually talk about technology.
This wouldn't be necessary if /r/technology didn't become political.
How about just banning political posts? That's the root cause.
Maybe this subreddit should change its name to "Net Neutrality" since that's all anyone ever talks about here. This subreddit is 10% technology and 90% politics. On the day that Net Neutrality was repealed, only ONE POST on the front page of this sub was not about net neutrality. How about, on a day like that, having a net neutrality megathread and concentrating all conversations on that topic within that thread and removing all other posts on that topic? There are so many interesting topics that could be discussed here, but no, every single post has to be political.
Booooo! Let the people discuss! There is nothing wrong with people venting frustration at a horrible event of epic proportions.
How ironic that the first headline I see is a threat from Reddit that any user can be banned if they threaten.
I miss Reddit.
> We will tirelessly defend the right to freely share information on reddit in any way we can, even if it is offensive or discusses something that may be illegal.
Aaron Swartz continues rolling in his grave.
> This page advocates advocacy of the violent overthrow of the United States Government
And so do I.
Stupid question but how does "I hope this PoS dies in a car fire" considered threats and inciting violence?
Thank you. Been seeing it quite a lot over reddit and it sickens me.
Would be wise to listen to the mods because if they don't ban those that break reddit rules it can and likely will result in the entire sub being banned.
The recent top thread has been hate bashing an entire community of people, and we have a stickied post detailing that harassment, abuse and hate won't be tolerated. Hypocrisy ?
Take a trip through the Ajit Pai / CES thread. Plenty of people there happy about him getting death threats and living in fear.
Do those break the rules here?
