    I don't distrust drinking fountains. I distrust people who don't know how to use a drinking fountain. It's not a damn sex toy, people.

    People will defend opinions as if they're immutable facts. I think Gilligan's Island is the best television show in history. Come at me bro! (probably not the best example since that's obviously fact)

    People will attack opinions as if they're lies and misinformation. I don't like soap operas.
    You're so full of shit! Soap operas have been a mid-afternoon staple for nearly 75 years! Go back to troll land!

    People will state opinion as fact. Obama is the worst president in history. That's just a scientific fact.

    People will state (usually bullshit) "facts" as opinion. In my opinion, vaccinations are more dangerous than the diseases they protect against.

    Fans have always said CONCACAF is corrupt, and now Panama agrees

    The North American confederation is synonymous with unfair play. Panama isn't taking it anymore.

    I wholeheartedly disagree with the author and think Klinsmann has earned the right to coach this team in Russia 2018, but it's worth a discussion at least.

    And it's not just because of their unforgivable performance against Jamaica.

    This is why we need to build and move to a decentralized platform. It seems that Reddit's stances are continuously in flux depending on whatever seems to be convenient for the company at a certain point in time. If people don't want to see certain offensive content that's understandable, but the goal shouldn't be to remove content just because some group finds it offensive. At most a system should be put in place to allow the content to be flagged/filtered out for users who don't want to see it. What's clear is that Reddit doesn't care about sticking to a set of principles. It will change its principles whenever they think that it is profitable to do so. They cared about free speech when it was necessary to keep and grow a small userbase who cared about free speech. Now they want to attract the masses and their grandmas and would rather throw their old users and principles under the bus. Centralized systems just can't be trusted. They'll come up with a set of rules today and change them again tomorrow. Yesterday they were for free speech. Today they are for "open and honest discussion." Tomorrow they will be for happy conversations. The next day they will be for connecting consumers with products and services.

    Not me, but it sums up my feelings on the subject pretty well

    Same for me. I'm less worried about what they've done than how and why they've done it.

    I'm not really sure what you're saying there. To me, SRS and FPH are 2 sides of the same coin. FPH made said mean things and made stupid photoshops of overweight people in their own subreddit. SRS links threads to send their minions all over reddit to shout down anyone who doesn't yield to their radical ideals and derail any discussions that make them uncomfortable. They pay lip service to reddiquette in their sidebar, but they don't even bother using non-participation links. I consider that far worse than anything FPH ever did. You can't ban one without banning the other, and neither should be banned for doing something that wasn't against policy or the law when they did it. What's the next policy they'll apply retroactively to only some users?

    I'm not saying they're not assholes, they are, but if you post a picture on a site with hundreds of millions of people, you've implicitly given permission to those hundreds of millions of people to repurpose your picture. Maybe you become Ridiculously Photogenic Guy. Maybe you become Derpy Beyonce. If you put yourself in the public's eye, you have to take the bad with the good.

    Victimization has become a bullying tactic over the past 20 years. SRS are far more hostile than any other group on reddit. Those niche hate groups keep their shit in their own little subreddits where they can be ignored by normal people. SRS infects the whole site, and now they're monetizing: http://www.zazzle.com/fempire

    I don't care that FPH is gone from reddit. I'm concerned with how they were ousted, and how an even worse, more vocal, more invasive group is allowed to go unchecked for doing the same things the FPH policy prohibits. Where's my safe space to disagree with radical feminism?

    They weren't doxxing anyone. They were using pictures of imgur execs that were put onine by imgur. They merely added insults to already public I formation. Calling that doxxing is akin to saying I doxxed Bill Gates by writing "4 eyes" on his Microsoft headshot.
    They weren't kicked out for doxxing anyway. They were kicked out for harassing the ceo of imgur which required reddit to create a new policy to justify. I'm not defending their actions or their ideas, but reddit's reasonING and handling of the situation were petty, shady, and selective. SRS does the same things FPH did on a much larger scale, but they hide behind people's fear of being labeled any kind of -ist.

    The article calls it a testimony to how well they sell, but it looks like more of a testimony to how gullible their customers are. 18% market share and 93% profits shows their making their phones cheaper and selling them for more than any of their competitors.

    Voat isn't exclusively those 2 groups. They make up a higher percentage than they did on reddit because voat doesn't have hundreds of millions of accounts. Voat touts the same tenets that reddit was founded upon. Those people were railroaded off reddit under the guise of harassment for calling the ceo of imgur names. Some special interest groups wanted them gone, got their wish, and are now harassing Voat because they don't want anyone saying anything that makes them uncomfortable. That, in turn, makes those haters victims I their own right, and they scream even louder. The sjw crowd from reddit is pushing the buttons of the hate crowd to provoke a response they can use as an excuse for their actions, and the hate crowd is using the button pushing from the sjw crowd as validation for their beliefs. I wouldn't be too surprised to see this end up in court in the next couple of years.
