Thoughts on Reddit? I know they’ve quarantined r/genzedong and finding genuine ML subs on there is difficult, but I feel like that crowd can be more amenable to our worldview. There are already a lot of subreddits that focus on workers rights and are anti-reactionary. What’s stopping us from creating our own sub on there and uniting the proletarians of the world?

I agree with OP. Reddit is a million times better than this board full of red fash.(This is OP)

-censorship
-covert censorship like visibility manipulation
-upvote manipulation
-bot and sockpuppet networks
-mass surveillance and meta data scraping
It is possible it's just kind of a waste of time compared to doing irl shit or even other social media type platforms like leftypol or the lefty reddit alternatives. We have a sub that is inactive atm. Mods have discussed posting leftypol OC etc there in the future and trying to get the ball rolling. Could be worth prepping anons here for a little while to join or pick stuff to post, like with the twitter.

Disagree, there are a lot of red fash and Hazoids on this board nowadays. I know the prior affiliation with 8chan did more harm than good but this is an entirely new crowd and basically a gayer version of whatever Nick Fuentes and his fans do.(Also OP)

why are you here then

Minus interlopers from /pol/, I'd say we had fewer fascistic commenters on 8chan than here. Not really sure what the cause is beyond the war in Ukraine, although these commenters were starting to filter in here before that.

I mean most of this board sympathizes with Stalin so it’s easy to see why they would also be reactionaries and revisionists(One post IP)

This.
Also, the userbase of leddit is mostly Americans, and Americans are irremediably ignorant.

>Thoughts on Reddit?
Venture capitalist social media. Any popular community is absolute shit, filled with bots and platitudes. Aaron Swartz (pbuh) was a fool to help build it. Lemmys (incl. Hexbear) have their major, hugebig issues but are far better, despite them.

Never use it through its main interface, only use an alternate frontend like teddit.net or libreddit (inb4: lib stands for 'libre')

>What’s stopping us from creating our own sub on there and uniting the proletarians of the world?

Just like /leftypol/, you're only uniting a bunch of disparate, desperate nerds. On top of that, it's a horribly ineffective platform, on a technical level, even with an ideal userbase. You cannot effectively organize on it.
Additionally, any community that somehow magically does that will be shafted. We've seen evidence like genzedong and others. And anything that doesn't will get sanewashed like the formally anarchist /r/antiwork . They won't allow you to say anything dangerous. They won't stop the bot armies from drowning you. They are public bourg and they own the system.

OP is a fucking idiot.

It's not a 'prior affiliation' you sanewashing little shit. We weren't affiliated, the board was born there and was there for most of its existence.
You might as well be saying Marxism had a prior affiliation with Karl Marx.

As a matter of fact, there were far more anarchists on the board for the first few years until a mod balleted them, so the problem wasn't even 8ch.

99% of 8gag, including the staff, hated us. the only reason /leftypol/ didnt get deleted was thanks to hotwheels, the literal creator and owner in name only

8chan under hotwheels was terrible. Pretty much all mods on all boards were either retarded or glowing, /leftypol/ was full of spam by COINTELPRO shills. /cyber/ was alright until that too got assimilated.
8chan flourished after hw left and, believe it or not, even /pol/ was on a good path away from being the racist disinfo shithole that it used to be.

Btw, this is the thread that got it shut down:

Now the entire site is full of shitposters again.
