Rant/Venting[Mod] Make the community worth a fuck by not acting like a cunt. (self.TheRedPill)

submitted by ModMachiavellianRed

The mod team doesn't care if you think a poster is a "little beta" or a "fucking cuck" or any other bullshit that involves negging another forum user. We encourage you to keep it real, this isn't a "safe space" for the weak, but at the same time it is not a battleground where "whoever speaks the most edgy shit wins."

Nah, we don't want that shit here. We'll leave that bullshit to the perpetual adolescents who give more fucks about seeming cool than learning.

When all people do is disrespect one another, substantive conversation cannot be had and the topic devolves into a battle of egos.

We really don't give a shit about your ego here, how popular you are, what you make, the kind of level you're at in society, the car you drive ad nauseam. We give a massive number of negative fucks about your real life, the only thing important to us when you come in here is your knowledge. So don't posture, because we don't care and we don't want you to tell us shit we don't give a fuck about.

When you feel the need to tell someone how pathetic they probably are and how awesome you are in comparison, nobody learns anything. All you do is lower the signal and increase the noise.

RESULT? You give the mods more work to do, and people who give us more work to do are people we want to kick in the head. But because we can't do that, we just ban 'em instead.

The mod team does not give a fuck if you need to shit on other people to feel like you exist, we don't tolerate that immature "LOOK I'M SUPERIOR, WATCH ME GO ASSERT MYSELF TO PROVE IT" bullshit here. Anybody behaving in this manner will be given the flair "worthless tramp" to give everybody a laugh the next time they instigate in the never ending quest for drama, that or we'll just ban you.

This is a forum to discuss ideas pertaining to masculine self-improvement and sexual strategy, we can only do this if a basic level of decency and respect are maintained. This predominantly means:

  • Show a basic level of common decency to all posters

  • Attack the opinion, not the poster

You are talking to other dudes anonymously over a machine, you're not trying to impress a hot girl by deploying "AMOG EVERYBODY Donald Trump caveman game." You don't need to neg all the guys around you and then flirt-neg the hot girl to show how ALPHA AS FUARRRK #winning you are. This narcissistic posturing bullshit shit is for getting your dick wet with soulless bitches, not for talking to dudes about sexual strategy and self-improvement.

Treat your fellow red pillers with respect and refrain from petty internet bullshit, or the fraternity doesn't want you. It's that simple. People who behave like this drive people away who are actually worth a fuck.

As for our more mature users who don't endorse nor encourage this nonsense, we'd like you to report comment chains where people are simply putting one another down or bickering over net worth, notch count and other unverifiable offline bullshit.

If you want this place to be worth a fuck, you have to play your part in defending the community from bullshit by reporting it whenever it crops up.

People like to bitch "why haven't the mods removed X?" like we're fucking minimum wage janitors that aren't doing our jobs properly. Truth is, we probably haven't noticed it, we get a few thousand comments per day and there are only a dozen or so moderators. We cannot read every topic, low karma doesn't mean a topic is bad, and some bad topics have good titles.

If you've noticed some crap that needs cleaning, you can do your bit by spending literally 5 seconds to report it. DO THAT, do not spend a minute writing out a post bemoaning how TRP has gone to shit, just report the post and keep quiet - THIS IS THE BEST THING YOU CAN DO FOR THE BOARD.

By reporting a post, you bring it to our attention and heavily increase the chances the offending post will be removed.

Every comment has a report button under it, use it when you spot nonsense and we'll all be the better for it. Less complaining about "why have the mods not done X?" and more helping us the fuck out by reporting stuff. For a community this size and this active we do not get enough comment reports.

With a forum this size, a dozen dudes cannot be everywhere at once to clean up the epic amounts of bullshit that get posted, you have to do your bit to help us. See it as your civic duty, the more people who adopt this attitude, the less crap there will be in the forum and the more you will enjoy coming here.

One more thing: do not talk shit to endorsed, senior endorsed and vanguards - chances of you being kicked out for trying to be an edgy fuckwit with these guys is about 99.9%. And then we'll ignore you when you blow up our mailboxes screaming insults demanding to know why you're banned.

The red pill is a resource, not a crab bucket. There is no competition here, so act right, treat each other well, boost each other up and don't make me post rants.


  • Show common decency
  • More substance, less fluff. Maturity > Immaturity
  • Report comments/users who seem incapable of the prior

How to get yourself unbanned from trp in 30 seconds:

  1. Log out of reddit.

  2. Create a new reddit account.

  3. Subscribe to trp.

  4. Don't be a little bitch this time.

[–]TwentyYearsAgo 20 points20 points [recovered]

There's a soft ban with some requirement for time and/or karma to post.

[–]sparkleselite 16 points17 points  (16 children)

Even better. They have time to sit there and think about what they should and shouldn't post so hopefully they try not to get their second account banned again.

It's like what I learned in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Leave your ego at the door. Black belts ask questions, get tapped and have something new to learn all the time so don't act like a know it all or act as if your shit doesn't stink. Don't put someone down who's struggling to learn something new or having a hard time grasping certain concepts; help them understand it because not everyone learns at the same speed. There is never a loss, only lessons. Dick measuring and ego boosting is the easiest way to make a fool of yourself. Fill your cup with whatever is useful and discard what's not.

We're all here for a purpose gents. Leave the bullshit outside of this forum.

There are a lot of good people on here but it's always the select few that fuck it up for everyone.

[–]1cmkinusn 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I think even the select few probably have good intentions, it's just that when they are attacking people or being negative, they don't really provide much actual, usable advice. It all gets lost in the noise, just as much as circlejerking.

[–]1PrinceofSpades 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Learned the same from Rugby.

This should be the last place these types of mod posts are needed, new subs or not. to those responsible: take responsibility. Grow up. Man up.

[–]cdtCPTret 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That can be a challenge when someone runs onto the mat with their shoes on and starts asking questions that can be answered by a few minutes of observation.

[–][deleted] -2 points-1 points  (1 child)

Well to be fair it's tough to avoid the Bull when we have some really senior members here stuck in an angry phase who say stupid stuff like woman would be hitting the wall at 20 if adulthood officially started at sixteen

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think anger phase is a big debate here. Some people see any amount of anger as hidden beta bubbling to the surface. Some see anger as motivation for progress. Still others use residual anger as a means of not giving a fuck.

One thing seems certain, you can be successful with women and have disdain for them. Whether in spite of or because of it. It's probably largely dependent on the individual and what they do with that emotion.

[–]Chadtheslayer 53 points54 points  (29 children)

I am going to confess, I am frustrated. Not at the people here that aren't succeeding in life but the posters that come in here and make posts such as "there is more to life than sex" or "getting girls is so overrated, your life should be so much more than that".

Now a while back, one of you mods said that this is a sub about sexual strategy. IMO, if I wanted advice on fitness, career, and other things, I would go to sites that center around that advice. What I expect when I come to this sub is a way where guys like me can talk about topics relevant to us based on what this sub says.

We're not going to get married young or start a family early in our lives but a lot of us, we're out of college where we don't have that built in social circle and opportunities to do things like have an active social life along with meeting women. Now let me remind you, having social value is a big part of attracting some of the better looking women.

I want to talk more about being that cool bachelor that parties, makes decent money, has cool friends, and occasionally gets laid. The issue is, I can't really do that without some neckbeard coming in with the bullshit of "you put too much value into sex, the Dalai Lama never had sex and look at how fucking awesome he is". As a long time reader of the material here, I sincerely believe that because of people like that who have stormed into this sub and made it their personal growth journal, the sub has lost its meaning in terms of quality.

Quite frankly, I want to talk action.

I want to talk about cool side gigs you can have to help your social life and meet women.

Fun things you can do to raise your SMV and attract people in general, not just lifting weights and eating right either.

Great cities for a red pill bachelor because location fucking matters.

It's like here I am trying to engage with a community of cool guys on cool topics and along comes a group of guys who have a major issue with us talking about meeting people, meeting women, and enjoying life. They always come in with bullshit saying that "social life is overrated, go monk mode" or say generic nonsense advice like "hay bro, have game, the rest will work itself out".

[–]EeeeeeevilMan 19 points20 points  (17 children)

This so hard.

The "lift for yourself" shit annoys me to no end. I lift because I want to look attractive to the opposite goddamn sex and not be embarrassed to take my shirt off around them at the beach.

These types of guys you're describing are also the ones who reject the TRP's definition of "alpha" and insert their own. For the purposes of TRP (and this is straight from redpillschool's mouth) an alpha trait is any trait that is sexually desirable to women. But for those dipshits you're describing, "alpha" is just traits they personally find admirable--like honesty, integrity, etc. Completely ignoring that there are alpha serial killers, alpha violent dudes, alpha Dark Triads, etc.

They don't fucking get it.

[–]Senior Contributor: "The Court Jester"GayLubeOil 34 points35 points  (10 children)

People who lift to look good never end up lifting that much. Lifting to look good isn't very good motivation. Lifting as a way to run from demons is.

[–]Yrenq 6 points7 points  (1 child)

The motivation for lifting should be to build enough discipline so you don't need motivation to keep lifting imo.

[–]7BitBrian 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This I can agree with because I was proof it is true. Find a real reason to lift beyond "I want to look good", and you're more likely to stick with it and get some results.

[–]Endorsed Contributorredpillbanana 0 points1 point  (6 children)

People who lift to look good may not lift very much in comparison to a powerlifter, but some of them are very motivated.

[–]Senior Contributor: "The Court Jester"GayLubeOil 19 points20 points  (4 children)

Arnold Schwarzenegger didn't lift to get women he lifted to become bodybuilding champion. Lifting to beat other men is strong motivation. Lifting so that sluty susan will suck your dick isn't strong motivation.

[–]Modredpillschool 11 points12 points  (2 children)

Lifting so that sluty susan will suck your dick isn't strong motivation.

In fact, terrible motivation because once you get slutty susan, what is there left to lift for?

[–]Senior Contributor: "The Court Jester"GayLubeOil 8 points9 points  (0 children)


[–]HS-Thompson 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Lifting so that sluty susan will suck your dick isn't strong motivation.

Yes, exactly. Because in that scenario, the minute you bust in her mouth you've lost your motivation.

[–]creatinekunt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah because Arnold did all of this to look good for women

[–]Modredpillschool 10 points11 points  (0 children)

[–]LazyMagus 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Should you sleep healthy for yourself or women? Sitting straight? Eating healthy? Having hobbies? Being good at people skills? Living with awareness?

All these things and more will get you women, but they are also important for your own well-being. But if you place women as your first priority instead how it is benefitting you, then you will be using the yardstick of success with women to see if what you are doing is working for you, instead of how it's making you feel about yourself.

Problem is, the rate of how much pussy you get is not very stable, but how fit and healthy and strong you feel is. So, the chances of you getting discouraged in pursuing healthy habits is higher if you use an unstable measuring stick as compared to a more stable measuring stick.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I can attest to this. Went monk for about two months. Dropped noticeable body fat and my chest and shoulders filled out and I started standing, walking, and talking with a lot more confidence.

What happens? I start getting more validation from women, start wanting to go out drinking more because partying at bars is more fun (obviously, because approaching doesn't seem so scary anymore, and sometimes I even get approached). More drinking leads to more hangovers. At first I would shake it off, and run on the treadmill despite being hungover. But this discipline began to fade as I realized I was drinking 3 nights a week. My workouts suffered, as I had lost the kick in the ass I had. I fell off my clean eating plan for a week or two, and guess what I destroyed? A lot of my progress.

It's because my head wasn't in the game right. I was doing great things for myself, but for the wrong reasons. It eventually came to bite me and set me back significantly in terms of progress.

Lesson learned (I hope).

[–]creatinekunt 4 points5 points  (0 children)

When you're struggling on the last rep of a max rep squat PR attempt are you thinking about how attractive women will find you? When you're lungs are burning, your heart is pumping battery acid and you're muscle fibres are tearing, are you thinking about that pretty girl from calculus class? Do you think Arnold Schwarzenegger, while sculpting his greek god physique, concerned himself with such puerile thoughts? Or what about George Leeman when he violently ripped a 910 pound deadlift from the floor?

The allure of increasing your SMV and getting a gang of hoes under your arm may initially get you in to the gym. But it wont sustain your motivation and it certainly wont propel you to greatness. You're going to have to drop that paradigm and start looking at the gym as a battleground. You're here to fight, to struggle, to improve your self. You're a testosterone fuelled male seeking betterment. You should be an ANIMAL in the gym! Unleash your fucking savagery. The strongest steel is forged by the fires of hell! It isn't forged by doing 3 sets of crunches and thinking about how attractive Suzy is going to find you. Change your mindset!

The ironic thing is that by doing all of this you'll 1. get better results and 2. attract more female attention.

[–]masnera 0 points1 point  (0 children)

well, how about we define our very own "Red Pill Alpha", and its ideal characteristics, and we all agree with it regardless of any kind of Alpha that exist out there.

[–]ColonelMitchell -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

You and the guy you are replying to just went against the point mentioned in the OP: ATTACK THE COMMENT, NOT THE COMMENTER.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

it depends. some of the users here are just like you, and only want it as a sexual strategy forum. a lot of others want other things from it as well. it seems you'll see more posts saying they want more than just sexual strategy, but who knows

"there is more to life than sex" or "getting girls is so overrated, your life should be so much more than that".

the reason people write that is it's true after you've had enough girls. It really is just the same shit over and over again. And while you're sitting there getting frustrated and beating off, maybe some older people are trying to help you out by telling you something they wished they realized 5,10,20 years ago.

That most of the time you spend chasing ass or fucking girls is a waste of time. Honestly, if I could go back a few years and just know that fact I'd be so much farther ahead in life.

And when you get ahead, it leads to not only things which are more fun than just fucking a slut (vacations, better car/house/etc) but it also gets you exactly what you were after in the first place, more and better quality and hotter girls.

It's like here I am trying to engage with a community of cool guys on cool topics and along comes a group of guys who have a major issue with us talking about meeting people, meeting women, and enjoying life.

i've rarely seen someone have a "major issue" against that, but when someone says something about how they plan to spend an hour a day for the next few months learning how to play a guitar so they can score more girls, cool but it will be a waste of time.

I used to think like you, and you probably still will afterwards, but sometimes when people are trying to tell you something there may be some truth behind it.

And then add in the fact that having a social life or scoring with girls isn't really something you can keep talking about online

Quite frankly, I want to talk action.

you don't talk action. you DO action. if you want to get a better social life, go do it. if you want to smash more girls, most of the information you'll need is in the sidebar and it's only something you'll learn from practice.

[–]Chadtheslayer -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Your entire post just does not add up.

Guys who peaked early, fucked a lot of girls, and then went on to get married and do cool shit will NEVER come to a sub like this. The sub is for guys who were screwed out of the game one way or another, it is for the guy who was never popular with girls or people growing up. The betabucks who got divorce raped? This sub us for him.

You don't simply "get" a better social life, there are things you need to do. In college, it was rushing a fraternity. In the real world? Well fuck, its rocket science! It is moving to a big city and engaging in certain activities but hay, people on this don't want to talk about that!

Just travel the world all lonely, look at oceans, beat your dick off to porn, and talk about how enlightened you are Mr. Neckbeard General. Smashing more girls? That is why so many guys fucking came here in the first fucking place man! They want to know how, its not just about the game and knowing how to approach women, it is about being in the right city and doing the right activities if you want to have a high lay count.

I don't care what you say, nothing beats fucking a hot girl, you're talking to a guy who has traveled to Europe, done interesting shit, and all of that, nothing beats fucking a hot girl. Guys that deny that are simply lying to themselves because they do not have what it takes.

[–][deleted] -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

ok bro, good luck reaching the pinnacle of your existence which is "fucking a hot girl". I would've thought you were about 15 years old if you didn't write that you finished college...

Guys who peaked early, fucked a lot of girls, and then went on to get married and do cool shit will NEVER come to a sub like this.

because nobody gets bored on the internet and wants to help other dudes out... right

[–]NaughtyFred 0 points1 point  (0 children)

To contrast this a lot of the guys who show up here are not at the level of discourse that you want. They need basic advice like "have a shower, start lifting weights and stop eating poptarts for dinner and don't ask another stupid question till you do" ie: the building blocks of becoming a red pill male/alpha. Not 100% talk about the finished product of putting those blocks together.

(That's certainly not to say those topics shouldn't be the lions share of what is here.)

If the sub evolved in the way you describe there would be nothing of use to newcomers and would simply become another reddit circlejerk.

[–]Appomattoxx 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Awesome post. Anytime anybody wastes his time bragging about himself on the internet he is losing at life.

[–]1cmkinusn 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I find that most of the negative posts simply add noise to the message they are trying to convey. In my own post where I was obviously hamstering, I understood everyone's intentions and eventually got the message, but when someone insults or "degrades", it takes longer to actually get what they are trying to constructively tell me. Not that I care they are being negative or anything, just that I can't use the negativity at all.

Just go straight to the actual information, skip the niceties and definitely skip the ad hominems.

[–]Modredpillschool 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I find that most of the negative posts simply add noise

Agreed. That's the number one reason we have a zero tolerance policy on concern trolling. Even though some concerns might be valid, the biggest problem is that the complaints become more noisy and problematic than the original problem the complaint was attempting to address.

[–]1cmkinusn 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah, I have always seen redpill as a problem-solution mindset, where the worst bluepill attitude is tackled as a problem and a solution is found to fix it. Obsessed with former wife or partner? Study Oneitis and adapt an abundance mentality, defeat the bluepill tendency to put a woman on a pedestal. Anything but direct advice is noise....so at the very least state the facts and advice, then in a separate paragraph give your opinion.

[–]iamz3ro 2 points3 points  (1 child)

In the wise words of zyzz: "Talk yourself up, but don't put others down". Don't say shit like how awesome you are and everyone else is a faggot. Sure, say that you're good at something, but then pass on what you know.

TheRedPill is a church, in its correct form; A place for the sick to come to get healed. It's not what the church currently is; showing to the world its large assets.

[–]pavista 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There is so much bullshit on here anyway, the truly successful men are the ones likely not bragging about how awesome their life is and just giving good advice to other men. A lot of the members who truly rabbit on about how great they are are not even vaguely believable.

[–]RedAccount1330 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Probably a little late to the party but can I add something to all this? Please think before you post. I respect your right to opinions but writing how the Nazi were alpha, how trans and homosexual people are mentally ill is just ammo for people trying to get this sub banned. Yes it is censorship, but you've got to play within reddit's rules.

[–]darkrood 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Well...You gotta realize those people might not even read the sidebar, Rp is likely just another sub for them to spew their own opinion and show how superior they are to the rest of reddit.

[–]RedAccount1330 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Endorsed ContributorMentORPHEUS 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If you're GOING to write something, at least make it useful, constructive criticism. This provides useful feedback to all potential future posters including OP.

[–]NotUpToAnythingGood 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The OP just shows me how much more we as a community have to go to purge all the blue pill ideals from our systems.

The things that were called out are indeed blue pill and serve to hold us all back. We came here to get better, not more blue pill.

Well said brother! Countless times i would post on asktrp and i would get a bunch of retards bashing me and calling me a pussy while completely not answering my question. I started losing hope for this community but hopefully things will change btw i love coming across mature red pillers it gives me the tingles.

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

This sticky could apply well in asktrp. That's where I see someone often types out a problem they have and they get a response from keyboard alphas of "ur a pussy" or some such many times over instead of anything helpful. Sometimes that's needed, when the guy is just in the deep end and doesn't even know it, but many times it's not.

[–]Nogoodsense 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I hate getting AMOG'ed by a snot nosed High School kid younger than my son. Yes, you Alpha bro.

Could there be options added to the Report button? A couple I would suggest that I just thought of....

--bickering over unverifiable offline bullshit

--Blue Pill Troll

--Alpha as fuck AMOG-ing fucktwit

[–]haxurmind 3 points4 points  (2 children)

Could there be options added to the Report button?

Instead of changing this and getting more clutter with more options (or even analysis paralysis trying to select the right option), I'd recommend doing similar to the below.

Report -> Other -> type short response here.

I usually throw out a mix between the shaming tactics (sidebar item) or from the 'thou shalt not commit logical fallacies' poster - https://yourlogicalfallacyis.com/poster .

Usually between those, or just stating outright that it is a trolling/pointless post, is enough to cover the range of posts where I find reporting them to be the appropriate response.

I do that to provide some context to the mods when I report a post, as it means they spend just that tiny bit less time reading through the post to understand the context behind it that caused me to report it, meaning they can act on it quicker before returning to the report/mod queue or onto their lives away from Reddit.

[–][deleted] 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Amazing poster. I took a logic course in University, my absolute favorite part of it was the section on logical fallacies. It's essentially applying mathematics to human interaction. It completely changed my outlook.

[–]1Paid_Internet_Troll 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As a PR person/troll hobbyist, the list of logical fallacies is like a godsend; I'm gonna try and cram as many of them as I can into one argument, with personal bonus points if I can go six or seven paragraphs without saying anything that isn't a logical fallacy.

(Disclaimer: Not here of course. Most of my actual trolling is offline.)

[–]ModMachiavellianRed[S] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

If you tick the "other" box you can actually type in any of those descriptors and we'll see it on the note.

[–]michael_wilkins 4 points5 points  (4 children)

This is why getting mad over anything you read here is a waste of time

Anytime you read words on a screen, all you are getting is that 7% piece of the pie, I'll be generous and bump it up to 10%. But when you read something on the screen that makes you mad, something that makes your brain fire up as detecting an attack or threat resulting in a chain reaction throughout your brain, faster then you can consciously control, or even be aware of to hijack your emotions making you oh so mad and salty.

When this happens, just fucking chill for a second.

You are not getting roughly 90% of the communication out of that message. That means there is a 90% chance that you are mis-interpreting what was said and going off like a jack ass.

Think back to the last 10 times you got mad from something you read on here. On average, only 1 of those was justified.

Just fucking chill next time.

[–]cynicalprick01 5 points6 points  (3 children)

it may be 7% of communication for face to face interactions, but people most definitely compensate for lack of posture, and lack of tone online.

think "/s" to mark the tone of sarcasm or caps lock to compensate for lack of posturing.

so, no, I dont believe that, when reading anything online, there is a 90% chance of misinterpreting what was meant to be communicated.

Think back to the last 10 times you got mad from something you read on here. On average, only 1 of those was justified.

implying that getting mad over something someone says to you online is ever justified.

"whoever speaks the most edgy shit wins."

Thankyou so much for this. The number one reason my activity in this sub dropped off, I just went to asktrp - which is a lot better.

Nothing more pathetic than a guy who tries out his new TRP knowledge IN THE ACTUAL SUB. Like you're going to apply 48 laws of power on reddit, lel.

You mean like a meritocracy? Like where we engage with ideas?

Fuck yeah this post. That's what this place is about. We all want to become better men. Nobody ever became better by getting in a dicksizing competition online. Here we have a forum for constructive argument that helps men like me see the world as it really is. That also means logging the fuck off reddit to go out into the world and take action. Quality post.

I've never reported anyone before, hope it's a simple process. I will do my best to uphold this resource. It's been a great help in my life so far.

[–]Dustin_Bromain 5 points6 points  (0 children)

We're all on the same side guys. Leave the fighting, bickering, and shit-talking to blue pillers and women.

Donald Trump is not an caveman. Donald Trump is a God and if he posted here you guys would probably have to endorse him just so that you could stop trying to keep up all the deltas that I'd be giving him.

. Donald Trump is a God and if he posted here you guys would probably have to endorse him just so that you could stop trying to keep up all the deltas that I'd be giving him

Ehehehehe. Reminds me of an old tweet.

Trump or mod, it's the same. When alpha/authority lays down the hammer the weak-willed will swarm to agree while spouting platitudes.

[–]RedPillAnonymous -3 points-2 points  (17 children)

Do you really think Donald Trump is alpha? I think people need to realize betas aren't all nice guys, bitter beta bucks get all buthurt all the time, Donald is a rich powerful beta used to buying his way. What Rollo would call a situational alpha. Thoughts?

[–][deleted] 23 points24 points  (14 children)

Donald Trump is the single most alpha male in America. People at his level of wealth are absolute sharks and they don't just "show up for work." Their negotiations are incredibly high stake and full of every manipulative trick in and out of the book and you cannot be the kind of guy who just gets pushed around. You absolutely cannot get there or survive there by buying your way. His wealth is absolutely no coincidence, his entire candidacy is some of the most brilliant rhetoric that I've ever seen, and any of the people saying otherwise would be absolutely eaten alive by him if they went head to head. His success is no fluke.

The people looking at Donald Trump and saying that he's just an idiot getting lucky over and over again are the same ones who believe that the "asshole" just lucks into the girls he fucks because he doesn't understand that what women really want are nice guys who treat them well. They completely ignore the fact that all of his approaches are unbelievably successful an unbelievable amount of the time, and they ignore the fact that it's always him who's getting these successes over and over again. These people are almost too arrogant to live. When faced with time tested success they assume that the success itself is just wrong instead of considering that they themselves might be wrong or that they ought to reevaluate their own approach.

Before TRP, i thought he was a clown because i couldn't watch him without laughing. After TRP, i feel like we need more politically incorrect politicians (as ironic as that description seems to be). We need people to not beat around the bush and circle jerk in politics and in life in general. Still not sure if i would vote for him but on a personal level he has my respect at the least for not giving a fuck how he comes off or taking shit even slightly.

[–]Enjoyitbeforeitsover 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think its possible to inspect and see how he does have some RP qualities and give him props while also complete disagreeing with his political beliefs or approaches to certain problems.

[–]Endorsed ContributorBluepillProfessor 3 points4 points  (1 child)


Look at how he runs his campaign. It is PURE Alpha all the way. He wrote "The Art of the Deal" that was Red Pill decades before Red Pill. He is high energy. When criticized he strikes back fiercely.

He charms the female interviewers. Meghan Kelly was dripping wet during the interview and he even negged her- hard. He is supremely confident and arrogant. He is charming and successful. If elected, that guy will have more sex with Ivona and cum into the oval office more times than any President since Kennedy with all of his teenie lovers. She may very well be the First Lady who has the most sex in all of American history.

Paid for by Ivona for First Lady Committee. Not endorsed by any candidate.

THANK YOU for addressing this. I made a post about the lack of basic mutual respect in this community 3 weeks ago, and the comments therein really clearly showed the problem in its raw form: https://archive.is/2FSuH

That post got a really polarised reaction - most people were in agreement with the occasional complaint about the endorsement hierarchy (BP rejection of legit authority), but there was a select few with a serious "fuck you" attitude. People trying to "call me out" for some kind of smoke-and-mirrors tactics (the fuck?), users who would slide comfortably into a post on iamverysmart, and guys who think that they have to try to dominate other guys over the internet to be alpha. It's all noise, and it all detracts from the real value that this community provides. If those people will re-read the same sentiment from a Mod's pen and take it to heart, hopefully we'll actually see some attitude improvement around here.

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

This shit convinced me to comment again after 3 months. Got tired of the dogma, quotation, and strict homogeny of people who are still fucking learning and ignorant of application vs. Theory...

So good fucking on ya, mods. That shit hadda stop and this is how.

[–]nia_kills 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Am i shadowbanned? It seems i dont get any reaction to posts or comments :(

[–]ModMachiavellianRed[S,M] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

No, you're not.

[–]TRP VanguardtrpSenator 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh God, this nails it on the head when it comes to the sort of shit I've been seeing rising to the top more frequently.

I remember seeing it in the PUA forums: Dudes would come asking for advice on something. Other dudes would respond by trying to be as witty and funny as possible to out wit the other replies. It ended up just being fucking useless fuckhole of dudes trying to show off how clever they were with their response they spent 10 minutes coming up with.

[–]TheEnglishman28 2 points3 points  (11 children)

Paretos Law pretty much says that 80% of the guys who frequent this place are not alphas, and that 20% of the people in this place provide meaningful commentary and/or content.

[–]cynicalprick01 6 points7 points  (7 children)

yet everyone can upvote content and the highest voted is still considered the highest quality at that given time.

edit: wouldnt it be cool if trp endorsed people had more upvoting power than newbies like me?

[–]TheEnglishman28 -1 points0 points  (5 children)

People buy Justin Bieber's albums but it doesn't mean he makes good music.

The majority of males are betas, but it doesn't mean we have to be one.

[–]cynicalprick01 1 point2 points  (4 children)

I know, my point was this:

why are we allowing the betas in this community to decide what content is of the highest quality by giving their upvotes the same credit as those of trp endorsed people?

[–]FerrusMan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is a great idea, give the people who already have a good reputation more upvote voting power. So for example a moderator (or highly respected member of community) happens to read a comment and thinks it has something of value he clicks the red pill and instantly 100 up votes happens. (and vice versa)

Sometimes I see comments with 20 votes and it really should be 0. And sometimes a single red pill vote and it's gold advice. I don't mind sifting through now and then, but once I hit several crap comments in a row I just close my browser I get sick of it.

[–]TheEnglishman28 -1 points0 points  (2 children)

Betas are the target audience though. Without them, this place would have no purpose.

[–]cynicalprick01 0 points1 point  (0 children)

betas are not the target. this community is not targeting anyone. people will come here when they are ready. we welcome betas, but we dont target them by any means.

also, betas come here for alpha advice. this purpose ceases to exist when the alpha advice is drowned out by betas celebrating shit like their first plate or not smoking pot for 2 weeks.

I would like more sidebar-like material voted to the top instead of post by people who "stormed into this sub and made it their personal growth journal"

[–]Endorsed ContributorBluepillProfessor 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Do you think population figures are relevant to TRP? Do you think Alphas frequent TRP? I bet it is 90:10 not 80:20 although we definitely have a few situational (as in "online") Alphas.

[–]TheEnglishman28 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No doubt the ratio skews higher.

[–]timebeast69 1 point2 points  (0 children)

even those numbers seem generous

[–]TheMGhandi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is portrayed wonderfully in The Grey starring Liam Neeson. Ottway (Liam) is the leader of a group stuck in the wilderness due to his survival knowledge. He doesn't have a huge ego, just calmly states facts and the rest add to it. Diaz, otoh, is always trying to AMOG and since they're in the wilderness, it's just annoying.

Everyone knows Diaz is scared, because they're all scared. He just won't admit it until he gets what's coming.

Everyone here wants to be heard and they want to be validated. The occasional powertrip giving advice on asktrp is also nice but the feeling of getting someone is titillating. The more we all shout "Hey! Look at me", the less our voices will be heard.

[–]ShibaHook 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I actually take more notice of "knowledge" from someone who talks the talk and walks the walk. I kind of appreciate a little background information from posters. It carries more weight than some 19 year old kid who read a couple of books and some blog posts and now thinks he's an expert.

As long as people don't come off as too braggy, it's good to mention a few goals that you've achieved.... It helps motivate the reader.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I appreciate what you're saying. It's like a resume. They're more qualified to give advice.

Ultimately though I disagree. Even the people who make good choices on a regular basis in their own lives can occasionally give bad advice, even with good intentions. Sometimes it's as innocent and well-meaning as them saying what would work for them in their own lives but it's the completely wrong fit for the situation at hand, sometimes they just straight up made a mistake. Either way, you'll be better off by evaluating each idea based on its own merits than just looking at the "status" of a poster. That can be easily misleading and get you buying into some things that could be harmful for you (potentially).

[–]TheRealMewt 0 points1 point  (0 children)

we don't tolerate that immature "LOOK I'M SUPERIOR, WATCH ME GO ASSERT MYSELF TO PROVE IT" bullshit here. Anybody behaving in this manner will be given the flair "worthless tramp" to give everybody a laugh the next time they instigate in the never ending quest for drama

Ehh... I can't say I recommend doing this if Reddit admins are still on their good feels anti-harassment campaign. The kind of guys who would come here to stir up shit are the same kind of guys who would go squealing to the Reddit team about how the big bad mods of TRP are bullying them if they were flaired something like "Worthless Tramp".

Wouldn't want to end up like FatPeopleHate just to get a quick giggle, right?

but what if I'm a sick cunt bruh

[–]Luckyluke23 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I was gunna say a LOT of shitzippers around here latley.

I dont need to hear about another beta doing some dumb shit. Id like to hear about aome red pill theory. No about aome dude frtting divorce rapped. You should know by now not to get married. God. Its so plane to see.

Keep up the good work mods. You da real mvp of this place

[–]HellfirePeninsula 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hear, hear. A much-needed guidance.

[–]VancouverSucks 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just wait until the red pill is mainstream next year. The funny thing is that so many guys will already be married and have kids when they wake up to their harsh new reality.

This post made me raise how I don't make the best out of the reporting features.

[–]Squeezymypenisy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That report button is very useful. I use it more than commenting.

[–]JeBron_Lames32 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Hear hear. Anger implies weakness and is generally repulsive. Same goes for the assholes that feel the need to give their "expert" opinion on everything. Start a fucking blog, this is a discussion not a soapbox convention.

[–][deleted] -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

not acting like a cunt.

I believe the proper term is... mangina. ;)

[–]GainzdalfTheWhey -4 points-3 points  (3 children)

I have a question, can you implement an automatic delete of a comment chain if the parent post has significant number or reports? That could save some trouble. Maybe

[–]Endorsed ContributorBluepillProfessor 4 points5 points  (2 children)

You can't do this because The Blue Pillers could just hit report making the whole sub a cluster fuck. Reports are anonymous and you need human judgement before a thread gets shitcanned.

[–]GainzdalfTheWhey 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Yeah i forgot anyone can access this sub.
