The karma system does weird things to your brain

Reddit is an addictive website for sharing and discussing media. It consists of user curated subforums. Users can vote on links and comments to decide what is shown near the top for about one day. Users receive worthless points (karma) according to the votes they receive.

A downside of the karma system, as noted by many, is that it tends to result in group think by effectively censoring views divergent from the mainstream via downvoting and often through the actions of politically motivated moderators. Redditors are conditioned to crave the upvotes, and can easiest achieve this by parroting the latest mindless memes or by virtue signaling.

ArchivesEdit

Most banned subreddits have been archived on pushshift.io (which can be searched on redditsearch.io) and rareddit.com. URLs of deleted Reddit threads can sometimes be retrieved by replacing reddit.com with rareddit.com, ceddit.com or removeddit.com. On Archive.org one can sometimes access /top/?sort=top&t=month or /top/?sort=top&t=all to see some of the top posts.

Incel-themed subreddits and banningsEdit

Reddit hosted some of the largest incel forums, most of which have been memoryholed for "bullying" and "harassing" of women, presumably out of fear of bad advertiser relations and upon pressure of anti-incels.

/r/Braincels /r/Braincels, Battle of Incelistan Archive.org, Partial archive, Large archive download 21st of October, 2017 30th of September, 2019 Banned. 'Partial archive' only has some posts in early 2018. 'Large archive' is nearly complete except for late 2018 (159 MB download, 2 GB extracted). Posts from late 2018 are also missing from Pushshift.io, so they are possibly irreversibly lost. Many pics are still online except by accounts that Reddit has suspended. The v.reddit URLs can be downloaded with youtube-dl.
