Rules Clarification

Reddit View
June 25, 2019

Memes, Personal Attacks, Harassment Campaigns are all against the rules.

Automod is trained to remove a good portion of them, and please report any that it misses. Not only are these all against the rules, but at least one of them is against Reddit TOS.

I'm going to add one more thing. I'm tired of removing incel videos. Stop it. Share something if you think it adds value, not to make fun of others. I'm going to start handing out bans for it.

..... so does that mean we cant call op a faggot?

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 37 points38 points  (8 children) | Copy

I'll leave this up as an example, no you shouldn't call op a faggot.

[–]Endorsed Contributoritiswr1tten13 points14 points  (6 children) | Copy

Can I suggest corollary? You can call OP a faggot if (1) he is being a faggot and (2) you include legitimate effort to give OP advice or offer constructive feedback on the post and (3) you are using the language and tone as a filtering tool

But that's not the point of this rule, is it?

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 19 points20 points  (5 children) | Copy

It's not even the word faggot - it's that a few people have been using it as a stand-in in place of an argument against other users here.

To clarify:

A drill instructor style dressing down, in classic TRP style, will not be removed even if it contains the word "faggot", or other invective, so long as its major objective is to help unfuck someone's thinking, and it has content that is effective for doing so.

We're not going to become the politeness police. We're just going to start being more aggressive about removing girly slap fights.

[–]Mistbourne25 points26 points  (1 child) | Copy

Thank you for not being a faggot about this rule.

[–]TheRedPillRipper1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Always upvote Sanderson. References that is.

"Removing girly slap fights"

Thanks, that shit makes me cringe

[–]stoicbotanist2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

I find it amusing that you're forced to reply to these meme comments with seriousness. Thanks

[–]ModernSchizoid0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Forget name calling OP. Nobody gives a shit about that. You gotta construct arguments as a response, not come up with counterproductive replies to the cause.

The last thing that a self-improvement subreddit (specifically one that claims to be targeted towards men) needs is childish name calling in the guise of discourse.

If you don't like something that someone is saying, attack the idea, not the person. I guess it could be worse though, they could attack the person when they're not there, while pretending to like the idea...

Just replace the o with a 0. We will find a way around these pesky bots.

[–]Dread_Pirate_Johnson21 points22 points  (2 children) | Copy

Mods: /r/The_Donald just got Quarantined.

Move along, no agenda here

[–]Vikingcel9 points10 points  (2 children) | Copy

Poor GLO

[–]FiveStarTendieDinner7 points8 points  (1 child) | Copy

I don't take that motherfucker seriously. And nobody else should.

[–]Vikingcel0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I like GLO. He's a bit strange sometimes, but I dig him. He's smart.

Memes and Personal Attacks Ban

Best news all week.

Harrasment Campaigns are the feminine, coward way of punching you in the mouth.

[–]frykidse0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

This is an important point to make.

coward way of punching you in the mouth.

This is the definition of toxic masculinity. The schoolyard bully is toxically masculine as a concrete example. He/She comes from a position of weakness attempting to impose strength that is not earned. Dumbasses parroting off garbage rhetoric here is toxic masculinity. Feminists shutting down bakeries is toxic masculinity.

Masculinity does not tear down unless the crime is grievous and deserving. At that point justice is swift.

[–]throwlaca0 points1 point  (1 child) | Copy

is not earned

I don't follow. The bully obviously have strength. He's bigger than you. More strong. He doesn't need to earn strength, he has it. Maybe he was born with it. Or he lift weights, the thing is, he *has* more strength that you, that's why he can punch you and you can't do anything except to become stronger.

[–]frykidse0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Here's a thought experiment: Is the current deadlift world record holder the supreme leader of the earth?

The bully in my example is attempting to force his/her way up higher in the hierarchy than what they have earned only through physical violence. Violence does not equal leadership or even strength. That is how I support your statement that it is cowardly. Masculinity is among many things: leadership, strength, love and care for your underlings and dominance. Dominating someone does not necessarily mean you do it with evil intent. If I tell my kids sternly "Stay out of the goddamn road" then am I bullying them? Toxic masculinity is the attempt to impose dominance without any of the positive qualities of masculinity.

you can't do anything except to become stronger

That is one simple solution. Humans being the tool using animals that we are, I can also gather my friends and take him down. I could also use a club to enhance my physical strength. I can use a gun or other technology to remove physical strength from the equation. I could leverage a higher authority over both of us to put him/her in check.

We are animals, yet social and intelligent animals. Physical strength is only one metric of the sum totality of the human experience.

Trp has now become its own worst enemy. I’m pretty sure some Ecs use this style of argument to great effect. However, because it isn’t in line with the 48 laws of power bullshit the mod team is peddling it’s deemed unlawful. If OP is a retard im going to personally call him a retard and show him why he is a retard and that everything he stands for is retarded. Trp has now turned into a corporate workplace and the mod team is HR.

[–]Do not send modmail to my personal inboxCrazyHorseInvincible[M] 3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

We have no intention of cramping that style. But some people have been using the existence of that style as an excuse for pure unadulterated bickering, with no redeeming value.

The mod team can tell the difference.

[–]Endorsed ContributorKeffirLime3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

The rules are in place because NASCARnormies can't seem to distinguish between ad hominem's and...

call him a retard and show him why he is a retard and that everything he stands for is retarded.

and then conversation tends to descend into a pile of shit. So instead of the mods playing mommy mediater 24/7, just cut it and let the merits of their arguments stand.

Argue the point has always been the rule, it's just that certain members have been allowed some leeway because they've built rapport and their intentions are clear.

[–]Modredpillschool[S,M] 4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

We've always had a decorum standard. Sometimes the mods aren't always available at the same time to clean shit up and a few members got the wrong impression that this is just a shit-slinging forum. It isn't and never has been.

[–]burnyr2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Does this mean GLO is going to get pretty much silenced? Cause that's bullshit.

[–]TRP_Introspection2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Thank god, keep all that emotional shit outta here.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
