MetaCoontown banned in new ambiguous Reddit policy for "existing solely to annoy other redditors." (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by Roshambo_USMC

Today we are releasing an update to our Content Policy[1] . Our goal was to consolidate the various rules and policies that have accumulated over the years into a single set of guidelines we can point to. Thank you to all of you who provided feedback throughout this process. Your thoughts and opinions were invaluable. This is not the last time our policies will change, of course. They will continue to evolve along with Reddit itself. Our policies are not changing dramatically from what we have had in the past. One new concept is Quarantining a community, which entails applying a set of restrictions to a community so its content will only be viewable to those who explicitly opt in. We will Quarantine communities whose content would be considered extremely offensive to the average redditor. Today, in addition to applying Quarantines, we are banning a handful of communities that exist solely to annoy other redditors, prevent us from improving Reddit, and generally make Reddit worse for everyone else. Our most important policy over the last ten years has been to allow just about anything so long as it does not prevent others from enjoying Reddit for what it is: the best place online to have truly authentic conversations. I believe these policies strike the right balance. -spez

It's hilarious how any mention of SRS is met with crickets from the admin. They do more to harass and make reddit a worse place then all those places combined. The femicunts have infiltrated at the top.

[–]KobeHardensMyDirk 64 points65 points  (12 children)

/u/Spez weighed in on SRS here.

Basically it comes down to r/coontown makes it harder for Reddit to attract quality advertisers. It has nothing to do with them not breaking, or breaking rules. We all know for years SRS has been blatantly and openly breaking the rules. In addition, r/srs are the thought police that advertisers are afraid to offend. Their existence, and policing, insures that Reddit is a safe place for advertisers. This is why they won't get the ban hammer.

Unbelievable how much shit has gone on here the last few months just for it to end up with communities getting banned for no other reason than "we dont want them here".

Reddit is not a viable business. They tried to monitize iAMA and it turned into a total disaster. They will get more desperate as they burn through the money and approach death.

[–]Flareprime 15 points16 points  (4 children)

Certain kinds of people live for drama and calling people out. They thrive on social media where you don't have to look anyone in the eye. srs probably drives a bunch of traffic from those types

    The irony is, coontown has been on good behavior for quite awhile -- they were well aware that they've been in the crosshairs.

    Most of them are alts anyway, so it's not like these people went away. They just went incognito.

    [–]calicotrinket 95 points96 points  (1 child)

    Funnily enough, as much as I don't like Coontown, they don't spill over to other subs. Unlike the morons in SRS.

    [–]HoundDogs 10 points11 points  (4 children)

    The idea of an "Alt" is even changing now. The controversial subreddits that they quarantined demand an active personal e-mail address just to access them. Got that? They want to keep a standing log of all the personal e-mail addresses of people who look at controversial shit.

    [–]Endorsed Contributorleftajar 1 point2 points  (3 children)

    Holy shit. I mean, they'll just make throwaway emails. But still -- what other rationale could there be, other than to facilitate the identifying and harassing of dissenters?

    [–]HoundDogs 2 points3 points  (2 children)

    I honestly am at the point now that I know the admins are, at the least, huge SJW sympathizers. I don't use reddit on my verified account any more because it could doxx me. I just don't trust them. There's nothing stopping an SJW admin from secretly sending an e-mail address to one of their fembot blogger friends with black horn rims and no soul who can dig up, publicize, and shame someones entire identity if they want.

    [–]Endorsed Contributorleftajar 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    Whoa -- I completely forgot about my verified email. I went ahead and removed that just now. Thanks.

            Nah, a good amount of us used our regular usernames. I've only been on reddit for a year and a half, but it's quite quickly transforming itself into just another PC echo chamber.

            [–][deleted] 43 points44 points  (5 children)

            Making TwoX a default sub is kind of insulting to a predominantly male userbase. I took a break from reddit for a while and when I came back I was surprised by the shift in tone

            Even women that were there were upset cause it just flooded with annoying dudes. I don't mind the sub, it's where women congregate to do women stuff.

            As long as they don't invade male space and change it, they can have their own and I will ignore it exists.

            [–]Flynn_lives 14 points15 points  (6 children)

            I used my main account...and that was the entire point. More than half of the discussions there were frought with people telling stories, or others trying desperately to not get the sub banned.

            [–]WingTune0 9 points10 points  (5 children)

            Same here, I always used my main on coontown.
            coontown never broke any rules, and if it got banned, then it's likely TRP is next.

            [–]IsItJustified 8 points9 points  (4 children)

            TRP won't be banned unless they start banning more neutral/meta subs like Tia/Kia. This sub may be quarantined at most but I highly doubt it'll be a ban since it isn't an overtly bigoted sub. Regardless this reddit space has ran its course and getting banned is pointless since the users will just find a home elsewhere

            [–]I_ADMIRE_HITLER 18 points19 points  (2 children)

            Or if... you know... a feminist writes a huffpo article about trp aimed at reddits advertisers.

            Of course. They are the authoritarian left, so no opposition is allowed.

            [–][deleted] 17 points18 points  (3 children)

            I just got myself inadvertently double-banned from SRS. I said something like "Joining the sub. anything that upsets the SJWs enough to be mentioned on Content Policy is probably good for society."

            The banhammer was swift. lol

            I was also called a shitbag. My feelings are a little hurt, and I could use a cuddle.

            [–]Modredpillschool 242 points243 points  (100 children)

            I've said it before but I'll repeat it here before people go off the deep end with speculation:

            We have backup forums ready to go that the team has been working on tirelessly to make sure we were ready, complete with archives. There's no need to jump ship right now, so we're not, but rest assured we have a place for us if we need to.

            Announcements will be on puerarchy.com

            If it happens... how quick will Puerarchy be to monetize?

            [–]Modredpillschool 143 points144 points  (71 children)

            We have plans for donations and tipping to help keep the servers afloat. But if you think I'm going to sell out, you must be new here.

            [–]pehpe 34 points35 points  (36 children)

            Going to publicly post this even though I sent you a PM.

            Have we considered tapping into rp'ers like myself who work in web dev/ have server administration experience? Considering some of us also have dedi's and VPS's and know a fair bit amount about this stuff, I feel it'd be a useful tool.

            Myself, I have a VPS and a dedicated, and my dedicated is sitting there, I haven't even SSH'ed into it yet.

            Shit. Even a collaborative effort to code something that archived every single thread on this sub, which may or may not be possible, (I haven't looked into it) and making it available elsewhere would be fun.

            [–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (2 children)

            I sent a PM to the mods offering help before and didn't get an acknowledgement even, so I think that's not a priority yet since reddit hasn't shut us down. I just think it'd be a good idea to have a couple people ready to go in case help is needed to keep the infrastructure costs down by setting up a CDN, using cache optimization and such, things that guys like you and me could help with.

            [–]Modredpillschool 2 points3 points  (1 child)

            Sorry we didn't get back to you, the modmail is a serious joke as far as catching everything that goes through there.

            I appreciate the offers, I'll give you a sneak peek of what we've got going so far:

            http://a.trp.red/preview

            One of my main concerns is making sure that our lifeline (the server) is under my control. As much as I've appreciated the offers for dedicated servers from our users, I can't rely on these offers as much as I can rely on having a definite contract to rely on. And worst case scenario, if donations don't cover it, I can pay out of pocket. My main priority is to protect theredpill forums, wherever they may be.

            Now coding and the like, I may take you up on. We've got a lot already but there are some more features we're planning.

                      Is Puerarchy going to be the home of TRP? That site gives me the impression that it's run by just one person, whereas no one really owns TRP on Reddit. It also looks like a GoDaddy website squatting page. Why don't we just move to Voat?

                      It also bothers me that "puerarchy" is ridiculous and cumbersome as a word.

                        I work in online monetization. The active users in SRS must be monetizing a lot better than the users of subreddits like coontown or fatpeoplehate (SRS users also probably overlap a lot with the other SJW/feminist subreddits). Reddit is a business after all and they can make or break rules on their own website however they please, don't forget that. All that is really easy to see in the data and any competent manager has to take that decision.

                          The same ban hammer hit coontown's sister subreddits. With the same explanation.

                          Silence.

                          TRP and its offshoots getting banned would be equivalent to a law-abiding member of the NRA getting his guns confiscated by the federal government.

                          What, no. The government (backed by armed men willing to commit violence) taking away people's personal possessions is nothing like not being allowed to use a corporation's servers.

                          [–][deleted] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

                          You're correct. Reddit as a private company allow you to use their servers.

                          The government taking your guns is confiscation of property.

                          "I'm not letting you use my stuff any more" is wholly different from "I'm taking your stuff"

                          Today, in addition to applying Quarantines, we are banning a handful of communities that exist solely to annoy other redditors, prevent us from improving Reddit, and generally make Reddit worse for everyone else.

                          As is so often, the real takeaway from anything can be boiled down to one sentence. It's about making reddit more profitable. To get their advertising dollars, the good people reddit can't have all these "hate" subs kicking around. Never mind most of them mind their own fucking business and keep to themselves. It doesn't look good to the advertisers. If they really wanted to ban "hateful" or "harassing" subs, SRS, SRD, and their whole network would be the first to go.

                          I posted a couple things with the same mentality (reddit.com is banning subs to boost ad hits/sponsors) just to see what would happen. It's fun refreshing my comment page to see which ones switched from neg to positive every hour or so.

                          I don't care if reddit wants to monetize itself, it's just funny when they also want to be the front page of the internet.

                          It's about making reddit more profitable.

                          And I don't blame them one bit. It's a company. It was inevitable that they were going to start working on making it profitable or the investors would pull out and this place would close.

                          This sub is about facing reality. The reality is that reddit is a company. You can't blame a company for trying to make money, or rather you can but it won't do a damn thing. What you can do is adapt your strategy to that fact. It seems to me (but I'm not an insider or a mind reader) that what our mods did by preparing forums to bail out to is exactly this: accepting that we can't talk reddit into being what it's not, and working around that fact to protect our best interests.

                          And that's what I love about this place. Most other subs would bitch and moan about the oncoming wave of censorship. We'll post about it just to alert the other members about our sub, but the collective reaction is largely one of, "alright, this is gonna happen at some point, so we've prepared for it, therefore it shouldn't be a huge problem."

                          True, they are a for profit company and they should be after making a profit. I see nothing wrong with criticizing their methods though. They seem to be sacrificing long term viability for short term gains. Reddit was, and is becoming less so, a rather unique vehicle that attracted a great many eyeballs and became one of the largest sites on the internet because of it's unique platform that allowed pretty much free form discussion of anything with next to no censorship on a subscription based model. This model had been done successfully in the past with sites like Slashdot, Digg, SA, Fark, and probably more. Each site that has done this has failed in the long run due to an attempt to overly aggressively monetize by catering to advertisers. It's a tough business and no one has been able to hold on to it for more than a few years for a lot of reasons, the need to censor for short term profits being a big one. I love reading good debate about how such a company SHOULD be run.

                          You know you'd think they'd be able to monetize trp subs pretty easily actually. Gym products, fitness, health, razors...men's products...condoms...and they are just some advertisements I can think of that this would be the right market for. Education, and guns would be other options too.

                          [–][deleted] 12 points13 points  (0 children)

                          Yes, but reddit wants to advertise tampons to everyone. It makes it easier. If we all become transgender it becomes so much easier.

                          [–]fakenate1 2 points3 points  (3 children)

                          I don't think proctor and gamble, the maker of most razor products, would want to advertise here.

                          Imagine some news story in a ladies magazine pointing out how the maker of Venus razors is advertising in this sub.

                          There can be, of course, more niche companies that can advertise here... But they probably don't have the advertising budget to make reddit profitable.

                          [–]Xeusi 1 point2 points  (2 children)

                          That's why you as a company you actually create a subsidized llc just for each line so each even if it's all one pool of money and the same buildings are able to separate for images.

                          You want separate images for different groups just to be able to market better to them even if it is just the same product, but re-branded.

                          [–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

                          Or value added paid options that made a fucking difference. Gold is a fucking joke, but I've used reddit as a main source of news and information for 10 years. I'd think they could come up with something to sell me that wasn't just a circlejerk forum.

                          The problem IMO is when they try to take a false moral high ground to justify their actions. Call it what it is, or apply fairness equally to everyone. But if you have integrity then you dont get to do both. I dont feel that expecting a company to behave ethically is asking too much.

                          They can't both ban unmonetizable speech and claim to be the shining beacon of free speech. I mean, technically they can, but not without people calling out their BS.

                          I'm not positive on this, but that could also be new users who try to post immediately after making a new account. TRP makes people wait (24h?) before being able to post.

                          This was my takeaway, too. Spez obviously can't be relied on to keep his word. He doesn't follow on promises two weeks later, much less several years.

                          His presence is designed to lend credibility to the censorship process since he's a founder and can apparently do no wrong.

                          It's pretty clear the "Content Update" is going to be updated a couple dozen times before the year is out, with a brand new set of banned communities each round.

                          I bet we make it to November and no further.

                            personally, I think this is not good for reddit openness which brought me here , but monetarily this is great for reddit. Even with so much traffic, advertisers will never come to reddit with these subs intact. Reddit will do everything for its survival and attract advertisers that can keep the site growing and making the owners rich. Freedom of expression is a farse. Money talks.

                            It'll never happen. Gonewild is Reddit's chief export of generating inflated egos and beta voyeurism.

                            There was a lot of media around coontown on big websites before the ban. Once you see trp on front of huffpo we got problems

                              Dark Enlightenment talks about that too. People tend to naturally gravitate to their own race. Coerced coexistance doesnt work.

                              Interpretation - "We're next"

                              I think subreddits such as coontown and fatpeoplehate are banned because they target a specific group of people that most redditors (at least the more vocal ones) either have empathy for the "victims" of the subreddit or think that the prejudice the subreddit promotes is racist. In TheRedPill's case, the "victims" are women, and I think the notorious reputation this subreddit has generates media attention, another reason subreddits are banned.

                              It's hilarious because coontown in spite of its views, was quite the quaint and law abiding community. They United under their mutual hate for a people, followed the rules, and got banned anyway because people complained.

                              • Coontown never banned feminists if they tried to argue with coontown's views. Mods would only ban people if they broke the standard reddit rules, unlike various other subs where different opinions get you banned. They enjoyed the discussions SJW's would bring and shooting them down with facts and evidence, and even had a stickied thread a few days ago daring any SJW lurkers to challenge them and prove them wrong.

                              • Coontown reported on crime that everyone else would ignore so that it wouldn't get swept under the rug.

                              • Coontown held great discussions on evolution, genetics, testosterone levels, and the nature of intelligence/IQ and all of their relations to race.

                              • Coontown was on their best behavior after the FPH incident, as to not get kicked out because they know people hated them.

                              • Coontown was flat out lied to and told they would be allowed to stay.

                              And yet do you see thousands of coontown denizens brigading and raiding like the "niggers" they hate so much? No. they were different, but they were classy too.

                              The last point is what gets me. The sub was mentioned by name to be safe less than a month ago

                              I can respect decisions even if I disagree with them. What I cannot tolerate is being lied to

                              [–]Just_in78 1 point2 points  (1 child)

                              Exactly, they had to change the rules to be able to ban coontown, and of course didn't give them any time to "change their ways." like a normal sub would be. They had been on good behavior for a long time, and any outbursts or overly extreme viewpoints were not tolerated. They didn't exist "solely to annoy other redditors", they were a tight knit community that enjoyed discussions and analyzing news, like any other.

                              Among those, advocating violence was a big no-no, and coontown was also victim to SJW's down vote brigading quite often and posting extreme comments from throwaways just to make coontown look bad, before their throwaway got banned of course.

                              TRPs not getting banned just because a bunch of whiney sluts and fat losers find it "offensive". If they ban TRP because the women cried about, that will do nothing but 100% confirm our idealogies. It's honestly a win-win for TRP.

                              Coontown can say the same thing dontcha think?

                              [–]thor_away92 2 points3 points  (1 child)

                              Sure, but you can find a productive post instantly with TRP.

                              Women aside, TRP still contains relevant and useful information. With 120k subscribers they generate some kind of revenue from the sub alone. I'd wager when you're thinking in terms of your money, you'll collectively use logic over emotion, because if emotion truly ran reddit (not the users, those actually running it.) Shit would have fallen apart years ago.

                              The point I'm trying to make is removing TRP, financially, would be a stupid idea.

                              Im concerned cus I usually want to punch the "average redditor" AKA liberal indoctrinated sheep.

                              You lie, you get banned, you cheat you get banned....you tell the truth---yup that's getting banned too.

                              I like to hope that the reddit admins are smart enough to realize that r/TheRedPill is nothing like any of the sub reddits getting banned. People only hate this subreddit because it goes against what society tells us to do and our detractors will always post the same couple of threads to try and make us look bad, but besides that this is a good subreddit.

                              [–]Skater_Goy 15 points16 points  (4 children)

                              How could that not apply to Coontown? They never systematically called for violence, harrassed, doxxed, etc. Most of the time when a user attempted to do anything remotely similar to that stuff the automod would nix it and the rest, the mods would remove it. They obeyed the rules better than any other sub I've ever seen but they were shut down for going against the narrative- a trait that TRP shares.

                                That's a fair point.

                                Still, all the more proof that it was about shekels all along.

                                That's a shame. As a black man I found coontown interesting. Though extremely biased due to their racist notions, they still raised some interesting thoughts and points for me.

                                Kudos for being open minded. I'm a white man and find that sub pretty fucking awful. Why? they think of an entire group of people one way based on statistics. Feminists love doing this too. This is a form of hateful collectivism..

                                Statistics can say things about a group as a whole, but say nothing about an individual.There's something to derive from statistics, but demonizing every individual in a group based on them just adds another log onto the fire that burns the world.

                                It's ridiculous that it got banned when there are other even more racist subreddits that exist such as black people twitter or whatever it's called. CT was really starting to get its shit together. At first it was "huur niggers", but it became a good place to get things off people's chest, backed with stats and real life examples of why people were fed up with the cucks enabling bad behaviors. It really opened my eyes to some things, and was part of my RP and DE enlightenment.

                                It also had news that MSM failed to report on. I'm not sure where to get uncensored news now, or news without all the fucking useless cuck commentary.
