[Mod] Posting Rules Update 2013

Reddit View
March 12, 2013

Our sub continues to grow, and it looks like we're not stopping any time soon. Because of this, we've run into some new issues I want to address with our new modified Posting rules.

Posting Submission Rules

  • New submissions must be related to sexual strategy, events that affect sexual strategy, theories about sexual strategy, or stories confirming (or challenging) current theories of sexual strategy.

  • Personal or Advice questions should be directed to /r/asktrp See more about this here: http://www.reddit.com/r/TheRedPill/comments/1jkged/mod_new_sub_and_a_new_rule/

  • Absolutely no direct link screenshots or images. If you must post a screenshot of a comment or an image, include it as part of your written post. Do not make it your main link. Please include your analysis with the image. Any image-only submissions will be deleted.

  • No Memes/Image Macros

  • No Concern Trolling / Regular Trolling Please See here for details

  • No Direct Video Links. There is a lot of content on the web, and some of it is in video form for sure. We don't mind videos, however we will request that you post any video links you have in a text submission along with your analysis. Any video-only submissions will be deleted.

  • No crosslinking anything from reddit at all. Not in submissions. Not in comments. If you want to post a conversation or post between members on reddit you must take a screenshot, and edit it for the following requirements: No URL in picture or post, Subreddit name must not be present in the picture or in the post, Must be self-post with analysis. No low-hanging "look this guy is a moron" posts. Constructive posts only. Everything else will be deleted without warning.

Concern Trolling

Since we're getting more and more users every day, the signal to noise ratio is bound to decline by at least a little bit. Because of this, we have decided that one such dampener to signal is concern trolling. From this point forward, we will delete any post that attempts to "steer" the subreddit or complains about the direction of content.

If for some reason you're not happy with the quality of posts here, I encourage you to upvote good material, downvote bad material, and submit your own high-quality material.


The Red Pill is dedicated to finding the truth about sex and gender strategies, no matter how unpopular or difficult it may seem. For some strange reason, this has brought forward a number of racist posts, which have swiftly been removed. Let us discuss exactly what we mean by racism.

We acknowledge that cultural and genetic differences have an effect on behavior. However, we do not accept that one's race is inextricably tied to their culture. (Because it isn't). If you want to comment on a culture, speak of the culture. If you want to comment on genetics, comment on genetics. Do not confuse the two.

Understand that the differences between men and women are large as our genders have been evolving for millions of years, but the segregated cultures (and thus races) are in the hundreds of thousands (if that).

We are not denying that there are genetic differences between races. That said, we will not allow TheRedPill to be hijacked by blatant racism by conflating race with culture. This is not up for discussion.

Posting Comments Rules

Our discussion is not meant to be just an echo chamber, we absolutely encourage discussion that challenges commonly held beliefs. That is the core of the red pill: challenging what we know.

That being said, if you're new here and haven't read the sidebar, there's a good chance that what you want to say has already been heard and we don't really care to argue it. Some of the opinions and ideas we have here may seem a bit shocking at first if you aren't familiar with our theories. Let me be clear:

Our theories are well thought out, backed by evolutionary psychology, and are regularly confirmed by the behaviors we witness. One of the most astounding parts of the red pill is meeting new people here from other parts of the world... who all report the same behavior we've witnessed ourselves. There is REAL truth to the info we're compiling. Attempts to label it misogyny completely misses the point. We do not focus on women as the enemy and consider insults to hurl. Instead, we see women as our goal, and focus on theories as to why they behave the way they do, and how we should behave in light of this information.

If you attempt to "creep" shame, call out misogyny, or otherwise attempt to derail conversation because the information here is shocking to you, it will tell us one thing: You haven't even attempted to understand why and how we've arrived at our conclusions.

Any post that does not make a point and instead makes ad hominem attacks will be immediately deleted. A moderator may post a test article for you to read and discuss to prove you are not here to troll. If you fail the test, you may be banned.

We have no interest in becoming an echo chamber, and we don't mind dissenting viewpoints. But if it derails conversation, we will take action. If you're worried you might derail conversation, lurk more.

UPDATED RULES ON TROLLING: http://www.reddit.com/r/TheRedPill/comments/1dovmp/mod_state_of_the_subreddit_may_2013/

Thank you for reading our rules and abiding by them. We feel that as our sub grows, this rules list will help keep us on topic and minimize noise.

I'm concerned that RPS is actually a White supremacist and I have a picture as proof. Is this the kind of cisgendered misogynistic racist scum your sub supports?! I'm personally appalled at the creepy and rapey vibe around here and you should all be ashamed of yourselves.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 13 points14 points  (5 children) | Copy

Dude, did you just doxx me?

[–][deleted] 15 points16 points  (3 children) | Copy

No, I bought a case of Chef BoyardeeTM for one of my Omega orbiters and he did it after he got off his 3rd shift at Wal-mart. He's such a special snowflake and loves my 225 pound lady lumps. This is the kind of real man who isn't scared of my legbeard either.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 9 points10 points  (1 child) | Copy

You've got me. I guess it's time to shut down /r/theredpill and finally man up and get married. I suggest everybody else do the same.

[–]Endorsed ContributorNiftyDolphin 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

About demm'd time. All hail the Matriarchy!

If you don't mind my asking...are you saying that the only thing allowed here is "mating strategy" and "anti-feminist" stuff? I thought the Red Pill was about the whole truth. Can I not link anything but feminist bashing articles and "PUA" articles?

I just want to be clear on this. A post from my blog has already been linked here (not by me) which is how I found this place. I don't want to offend anyone by posting one of my articles here that is against your rules.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] -1 points0 points  (1 child) | Copy

Our focus is sexual strategy. Not "feminist bashing articles and "PUA" articles" This hasn't changed. Seems you're not terribly interested in avoiding being "offensive."

[–]Doctor_Illusion 3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

Actually, I could care less about offending people. Now that I have checked this place out a little more, I see that you feel the same way. Neither of us give a damn about being politically correct, so let me phrase my question in a better way.

You say only post about sexual strategy and things relating to sexual strategy. I do a lot of writing on my blog about feminism being a symptom of deeper rooted societal rot like communism and political correctness. If someone posted one of my articles that dealt with that kind of stuff, instead of explicitly dealing with sexual strategy, would that violate the rules?

I'm not trying to be contrary. I am constantly discovering new subreddits because people link my stuff to them. I never link my own stuff. I just don't want to violate the rules of your subreddit and get a bunch of people pissed at me when I don't even post the links.

Putting all that aside...you've got a pretty cool thing going here. I normally avoid Reddit altogether because it always turn into a bunch of white knighting and women take over. I despise r/mensrights.

It looks like you and your mods are keeping things under control. Keep it up.

[–]TRP VanguardWhisper 4 points5 points  (3 children) | Copy

New submissions must be related to sexual strategy, events that affect sexual strategy, theories about sexual strategy, or stories confirming (or challenging) current theories of sexual strategy.

I understand your reasoning behind this, and while /r/RP originally spring from the bluepillization of seddit, I think the way that RP has been drifting in the direction of including /r/mensrights type material... is not without value.

I think most of us can agree that our society's lifeplan instructions for men are bad for men in more respects than just ineffective sexual strategy. I think that we can agree that our culture is also pushing blue pills that make you broke, land you in careers that aren't good for you, send you off to die fighting for the agendas of special interests with political clout, and mess up your life in lots of other ways.

While I think RP's focus should remain one of personal survival in a blue pill world, rather than on "fixing society" (there are other venues to talk about that), personal survival goes far beyond "getting laid".

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children) | Copy

I suppose I should expand on "sexual strategy" then.

I consider all things related to the rights of men have a direct effect on sexual strategy (whether or not individually we exercise the rights for sexual purposes).

At the end of the day, feminism is a sexual strategy, and so is the men's rights movement (albeit a poor one).

Even MGTOW is a sexual strategy.. one in which to minimize sex to minimize personal loss.

Edit my goal is to avoid sidetracking issues like "take the red pill man, there's no proof we've been to the moon"

[–]TRP VanguardWhisper 2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

So you mean "strategy" in the evolutionary sense, and "sexual strategy" you mean "plan for prospering in areas of life where my outcomes are affected by being male".

Fair enough. All that's needed is a little clarification then.

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

I dont think that most feminist stuff has to do with mens rights.

and we have been to the moon but I still get your point

[–]telnet_reddit_80 2 points3 points  (2 children) | Copy

Absolutely no direct link screenshots or images. If you must post a screenshot of a comment or an image, include it as part of your written post. Do not make it your main link. Please include your analysis with the image. Any image-only submissions will be deleted.

I'm assuming screencaps are an exception?

No Direct Video Links.

Why? Those can essentially be articles. Why make the submitter come up with an unnecessary top comment, or post a link as a text post breaking RES?

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 5 points6 points  (1 child) | Copy

I'm assuming screencaps are an exception?

Images aren't outright banned, but if you want to post one, please do it in a text post along with your analysis.

No Direct Video Links.

The goal is to make the content easily accessible at a glance, and more in depth if you decide to dive deeper. The mods don't have a lot of time to dig through and watch every video and read every article. I usually skim each one that comes in to make sure it's not a troll post and then let the masses decide.

This gets difficult with videos, as we're not always in a place that can review videos. We decided it would best benefit the community if we made the submitter give an analysis or overview with the video. It's fine if it's brief, but the current trend of ambiguously titled videos will need to come to an end (even if they were good videos).

Edit: Mind you, this is in the interest of keeping our quality top notch. We don't want to devolve like other known subs.

[–]Endorsed Contributorburningtimber 3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

I appreciate the effort to keep the quality up.

Especially agree with the video rule. I don't want to watch TV unless there's a good reason. I guess it takes 30 seconds to read a post that covers everything in a 5 minute video.

are women allowed to post?

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

If they want.

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