Lockdown - Day 2 - Posting is locked, Comments are open.

I said I'd unlock posting when I felt like it. I don't yet.

In the mean time, enjoy some quality reading from some more contemporary blogs, recent events, and other manosphere insights.

As an aside, I believe when the lockdown is over I think we will reopen posting links to manosphere blogs. Part of our stagnation has been limiting the voices of our manosphere bloggers - who undoubtedly have more interesting things to say than the 17 year old kid on holiday break telling us about how he touched a boob once.

Also, kids take note: The front page of TRP today is exactly what I like to see. Quality posts, intriguing discussion, debatable points, and thought-provoking ideas.

In the future, if you are about to post and you think your post would look out of place among this current front page. Don't post it. Seriously, just don't.

I want to also comment on field reports. They've been a staple of our sub since as long as I remember. We're not doing away with them. But, if your field report doesn't have a really big conclusion, confirm a wild theory that is controversial, or raise questions that the community can discuss, I will soon direct your field reports to /r/thanktrp as they are more a testament of success today rather than a data-point for theories.

When (if) posting is re-opened, we will remove posts aggressively (moreso than usual) and we will not give individual replies as to why. Instead we will refer to this post. Got it? Good.

I remember when this sub dove deep into theories of psychology and the evolution of the male and female dynamic.

But up until this lockdown, it has been a bunch of 16 year olds spreading profanity calling everyone 'cucks' and 'betas'.

There has been alot of confusion in the minds of newbies who don't read the sidebar, this confusion spreads and divides the community between beliefs.

If the sub stays on lockdown, I wouldn't care. It would just be nice to have it the way it was back in the day.

I guess this just shows the serious penalties that can happen when you don't 'READ THE SIDE BAR'

If you are reading this, and have not digested any material from the sidebar; you are a cancer to this community.

[–]marplaneit21 points22 points  (1 child) | Copy

As someone who has been here for a little bit more than 4 years, this is true. This is full of 17 yo old kids telling everyone is a beta, insecure, of whatever the fuck. They hitted 300 lbs in the deadlift yesterday and are automatically alphas.

Try be an alpha while building a business, balancing your own money so you don't starve, and looking at your parents dying of cancer.

[–]ituze4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

I spent my December is some run down hotel in Africa reading the side bar. Probably the best ending of 2017 I could have imagined. Afterwards reading trp posts made complete sense.

[–]TheRedPillMonkey4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

I jumped in a little over a year ago and I noticed the same thing. When you have a concentrated amount of knowledge, opening it up for public contribution is tough. Even Wikipedia has moderators.

What's annoying me right now is a lot of posts, even from endorsed contributors, are becoming crap and no longer follow trp truths and conventions. Everyone wants to add their own opinion as a trp fact, even when it directly digresses from TRP origin and known truth.

Human beings have a tendency to want to contribute, further an agenda, and gain credibility, but it can often change the original message to where it is now seen as opposite of original doctorine.

[–]1CoupDeGrace224 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

lockdown should definitely stay, but we would be liars if we didn't admit some of the best insights and reads we've had here weren't from non-tagged members.

I suggest giving the tagged members some responsibility by implementing a review system where virtually anyone can post, but the post has to get reviewed by them before making it, old school forum rules, and if it's not feasible through reddit than perhaps it's time we ditched this platform and move to your main controlled page, reddit can stay for the sidebar , but the discussion moves on elsewhere, that's the only way i see this work as good as it used to

[–]1ozaku75 points6 points  (12 children) | Copy

I fully agree but you can't deny that even some endorsed users are spewing the same garbage like the newbies when it comes to the delivery of their message in a post. It just reads some hidden hate in women instead of understanding the game and playing it right with peace of mind.

It Is in these times where you need strict dictatorship within a sub to ban all the newbies and fucktards for a couple of days and clean it up. TRP doesn't have to have to have this negative image. Back before TRP, there was a guy making podcasts which was exactly TRP, but he delivered it in such a way that everyone agreed with him. It made sense, there was no hate, it was respectful for both genders and so on. It's only because of the cancerous users of TRP that the public considers TRP to be so toxic with which noone wants to be associated with.

[–]Senior Contributor: "The Court Jester"GayLubeOil2 points3 points  (10 children) | Copy

A Red Pill by definition is any information that is unpalatable to the general public. Therefore the Red Pill is the Red Pill so long as it has a cancerous image. Furthermore the Red Pill abrasive tone is simply the idiolect of young aggressive men, which in our hyperfem society is unpalatable.

The Red Pill by definition has to be unpalatable and offensive. The fact that you don't know this and want a mainstream Red Pill (which is a contradiction of terms) makes it obvious that you are too stupid to comprehend the deeper theory of the community.

[–]1ozaku70 points1 point  (9 children) | Copy

You want to keep that information offensive and unpalatable to the general public so you don't have any competition. Any new person understanding TRP dilutes the value of your position within the sexual market place and reduces your advantage to the point where it becomes non-existant as soon as every single man understands TRP.

So in my eyes, keeping the red pill unpalatable and offensive is nothing but self-defense of the community, which is ironically endangered by the influx of betas and incels.

[–]Senior Contributor: "The Court Jester"GayLubeOil2 points3 points  (8 children) | Copy

Your projecting your scarcity mentality onto me. Your talking to a man who went on television and called a major television personality a whore in front of millions of people. You really think that I'm afraid that the proles are gunna catch up to my level? No, your just afraid for yourself. Projection. Projection. Projection.

Next if you understand the Red Pill metaphor you would know that offensiveness is hardcoded in the metaphor

So not only are you an illiterate tardo you are a scared illiterate tardo.

[–]1ozaku7-1 points0 points  (1 child) | Copy

Instead of actually engaging into a conversation that would prove my points invalid, you instead go for illustrating the height of your throne on your television appearance, lack of fear and belittling others by namecalling.

That's something that makes me lose respect for a person, especially someone who is supposed to be much better than that since he's called the "Avatar of Brodin".

[–]Senior Contributor: "The Court Jester"GayLubeOil6 points7 points  (0 children) | Copy

First of all your respect means nothing to me, your not even intellectualy capable of understanding the thesis of this community. Second at no point did you dispute my assertions. Next you tried to assume my motive and when I disproved your assertion with a proveable example you got upset.

Your argument style feels very Asian to me it's hierarchical, respect obsessed and autistic with regard to ideological understanding. Perhaps you are biologicaly incapable of understanding my European truth and should instead watch anime.

I'm willing to make a post like this if I can be approved and the sub unlocked.

[–]FirstNamesMusic18 points19 points  (3 children) | Copy

I would like to add that locking the sub down ensures the authenticity of the information here.

It does kind of suck to think of how many people could have come to this sub and read one post and that post turn out to be some garbage. In which, they left believing the sub to be garbage.

[–]Banned-in-Boston 1 points1 points [recovered] | Copy

Guys, I've posted before that I enjoy posting on reddit controversial ideas that provoke SJWs and their followers. It is verbal guerrilla warfare designed to slightly alter the gestalt. The last few days, I worked a thread I posted in Askreddit, titled, "When a guy asks a girl, "Are you a slut?" Which is worse, the asking, or the lying answer? Why did you choose your answer?"

That question was designed to provoke, specifically so I could post the definition below of "femsplainin":

When a woman is intellectually unable to continue a rational debate, she defaults to creating an "explaination" (femsplainin: "Found an incel") on why her debate opponent is socially inept or damaged. This is because females abhor and fear social expulsion more than anything else. So they use that as a verbal weapon in debates when they are lost. Of course, their constructed fantasy about their debate opponent is just that. Fantasy.

"Found the incel", is an implied explanation of why the questions were asked, impugning OP's social standing. Rather than intellectually engaging the questions up for debate, this person opted to insult, via femsplainin.

The definition is calling out bad behaviors by women who resort to the distraction of social shaming when they are unable to proceed in an intellectual debate.

A shitstorm ensued, of course. Typically my goal is to get zero/controversial karma scores for the threads in a question like that. However this time, the result was even better. I posted the definition perhaps 6 times, every one of them was removed by a Mod. The definition of femsplainin really hit a SJW nerve, exactly what I was shooting for.

I posted that definition multiple times in response to replies that were insults, such as:

" ...than shithead internet trolls like this one"

"Oh boy its an escaped incel, someone get him before he spreads"

A core component of femsplainin, like the examples above, is it attacks the person, especially socially.

The reason why this definition of femsplainin is powerful is that it chops at roots of female psychology and tactics. It is a truth they cannot deny or overcome, so it must be removed or censored, by SJWs.

The roots of human psychology and base motivations have not evolved much in the last 50,000 years. What would happen to a human female expelled from an isolated tribe? It is a death sentence. This is why modern females abhor and fear social expulsion more than anything else. It is a feature of their underlying, root psychology.

I'm happy you're doing this. It's actually really refreshing to see posts from just a mod. Also nice to brush up on basics again. You should do this more. Or keep it going for like a week. Frankly, the posting is awful. I've made some bad posts myself. So I'm going to take note of these and work on making my posts as valuable in the future.

[–]ohyeawellyousuck12 points13 points  (2 children) | Copy

While I like what you are doing as the post quality has taken a nose dive recently, I feel like this misses the point of reddit entirely. If the only content I wanted to see was from other blogs, I'd go to the other blogs. I like to read about opinions of other posters, even newbies who are clearly missing the ball.

The community just needs to work through the growing pains of exploding with new users, all trying to say their two cents about touching boobs. I, as with most, hate to see a wild claim with clear confirmation bias written all over it upvoted to oblivion, sending misinformation not just trickling through the community but full on flooding it. Unfortunately, fixing the issue isn't as easy as saying "that's it, no more posts!" It's akin to trying to tackle the opiod epidemic by never handing out a prescription. What do people in pain do? They go to the black market and get addicted anyways. In this case, you are going to have many rookies go elsewhere to have their discussions, depriving the community of being able to do exactly what it was made to do: provide a place for men to work together to understand the world we live in and get better.

Maybe I'm exaggerating a bit as there is still ability to comment and have discussion, but I'm willing to bet the amount of comments has gone done drastically, which is my point.

[–]Agrees_withyou0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (8 children) | Copy

Can you post other things that don't mention woman, or the gender wars or politics?

I mean I really like those posts, but I think if TRP needs to evolve, then it should evolve into something more meta, and towards men improving themselfs.

I'm tired of hearing and reading about woman, I want to hear about life, and the place of men in life.

Thanks anyway for this.

The Red Pill: Discussion of sexual strategy in a culture increasingly lacking a positive identity for men.

The Red Pill: Discussion of sexual strategy in a culture increasingly lacking a positive identity for men.

Have you had a lot of lays recently ? How about in 5 years, how many woman(or women) have you slept with ? The problem about posting without mentioning about woman is that we, as the TRP community, will forget about the fact that TRP is a sexual strategy. not self-improvement, not the lives of other successful men so that you can fap yourself to.

You want to have more sex ? Improve yourself. Is TRP obligated to teach you how to improve yourself ? No.

Overall, I have no problem with this, as good content is always preferred, but I have a problem with only one mod making all submissions.

Shouldn’t other mods and endorsed contributors submit new content too?

Although I admire redpillschool, I don’t come here only for his opinions, nor solely to find out what he thinks it’s important to be read or not, in the same way that I don’t come here only for Rolo Tomasi, as when I want to embrace his great insights, I go to his website.

I come here to read all the community, to downvote and upvote new submissions, as basically everyone does on Reddit.

Shouldn’t mods restrict new submissions to two per day for endorsed contributors and the mods themselves? The experience would be better, in my humble opinion.

Perhaps links to other blogs, but required summaries, which are required to be short? I understand the move, but I'm a bit torn on it. I don't like the idea of letting people off the hook in terms of adding value and opening themselves to attack.

I'll take my share of the blame for stagnation. Every time I roll my eyes at some kid, I should think up a topic.

I know I'm no one, and I know I haven't contributed as much as I've received from this community. After my coming trip, I'll start producing content.

What was the straw that broke the camels back and made you lock things down for a bit? Was it my post that I tagged you in yesterday, talking about the inevitable increase in size and decline in quality of the sub?

I'm liking the quality so far.

Edit because I was too much of a pussy to write it in the first place: Whilst the quality is good right now, I'm for letting it grow, split, and then move offsite naturally. It will lose some of the shitty posters on here because a) only the dedicated people will keep posting on trp.red and b) a lower user count tends to mean higher quality. The only problem I foresee is that with a smaller, more dedicated userbase, and with no trickle of new users like Reddit gives us now, it'll turn into a circlejerk.

I’d also like to add and point out, the incel postings and remarks made in comments need to be treated with much more scrutiny.

I’m seeing “point endorsed” users making comments that are extremely “Blue Pill/Beta/Incel” defeatist mindset in nature that are getting upvoted and treated as gospel because they happen to have some kind of arbitrary endorsed flair.

It’s kind of pathetic actually, and definitely brings down the vibration and message of the sub and TRP in general.

I would like to take the time to say that reading the sidebar a couple times a day isn’t enough, INTERNALIZE It and BECOME what it entails. AWALT is real, hypergamy is real, Briffaults law is real. I by no means have the entirety of TRP internalized but I’m beginning to look at things through a red pilled lens as Rollo Tomassi says. All these summerfags (read armchair philosophers) post here with their little theories but all the “higher” thinking in the world won’t replace real world experience. Go fuck some guys girlfriend.

I believe when the lockdown is over I think we will reopen posting links to manosphere blogs. Part of our stagnation has been limiting the voices of our manosphere bloggers - who undoubtedly have more interesting things to say than the 17 year old kid on holiday break telling us about how he touched a boob once.

I would like to suggest that only pointed members and above be given this privilege (and maybe only ECs in the beginning so everyone has an idea of what's quality content), otherwise you can expect the 17-year olds to post irrelevant blogs because "it sounded good".

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (5 children) | Copy

Nice to see the sub finally leveling out. When posting is opened I might be inclined to write a few motivational pieces. Maybe. Last time I did the experience soured me. Not because of hate, though. Everything was "get pussy, hold frame, go lift." No one talked about building confidence. Rebuilding your broken self after realizing you've been a slave to a system that gives no fucks about you. Nothing that even hinted of motivation. So I stopped posting. No use trying to start a discussion no one cares to listen to. But with a sense of equilibrium return, I might be tempted to try again knowing the eyes on this sub are now a bit more receptive.

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

LMAO you sperg. The reason you were criticized is because it was the shit tier of post this sub is locked down now because of. If you really need to discuss some trivial shit, ask on asktrp.

Trp is not a happy place of discussion. Anything that is put up here is subject to the harshest of criticisms. Endorsed contributors are not excluded. If you get criticized harshly and can't take the heat, you're frame is weak and you need to not post, get stronger and read the ducking sidebar again.

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

My posts didn't get criticized, idiot. One of them got guilded in fact. It was the fact that I was the only person at the time trying to put out motivational content that put me off. But please, continue to make baseless assumptions. Seems like you're good at it.

Hey can I ask you a question? I'm new to the red pill, and would like another guy's opinion on something.

[–]ShotgunTRP2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Questions go to asktrp. Read sidebar

[–]that_italia_guy0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Sub is a much better place with limited posting. Maybe make a rule to allow only 1 post a week from people.

[–]ShotgunTRP0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Please. Can we keep it like this.

I'm so sick of nerd schoolboy posts.

[–]1SirKolbath0 points1 point  (11 children) | Copy

If I may ask, did we not used to have a minimum karma limit for posting? One of the things that has been burning my ass of late is idiots like pyBlackhat or whatever his name is posting multiple times with every post containing a link to his blog. He has something like -16 comment karma, and is routinely downvoted. My opinion, which is free and therefore worthless, is that he shouldn't be able to post here at all until he demonstrates that he has met certain criteria levels within the forum.

I, personally, will only make a post after gaining 2,000 comment karma. I do this to make sure that my thoughts are fully aligned with the forum and my writing has contained enough quality to make it worth reading. Plus, it also keeps me from filling the forum.

My suggestion would be to make the minimum karma for posting somewhat high - well above 1,500 comment karma, and make posting off limits for anyone whose Reddit account is less than six months old. That would weed out some of the more obnoxious newcomers. (I don't even know if this is possible, truthfully. I don't moderate any Reddit groups.)

Regardless what you choose, u/redpillschool, I appreciate the hard work you have put into the thankless task of moderating this forum.

[–]ThrowFader1 point2 points  (1 child) | Copy

deleted What is this?

[–]1SirKolbath1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I think there shouldn't be a karma limit, but rather an examination. Karma is not infallible.

You are correct. Karma is very fallible. However, the moderators have a limited amount of time to devote to this forum, and an examination process would use a majority of that time.

Would it use more time than the current removal of daily shitposts? I don't know. Only the moderators know for sure.

[–]RatMan291 point2 points  (3 children) | Copy

A karma limit would effectively ban anyone who belongs to certain controversial subs (where downvotes are tossed around like confetti). If the karma could be counted only within this sub or this and a group of related subs, then it might be useful.

[–]1SirKolbath0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

I didn't consider that, I confess, but I created an alt specific to these forums when I decided to enter into conversation several years ago. (Which is why I've been on Reddit for almost four years, but this account name is only two years old and some change.)

[–]RatMan292 points3 points  (1 child) | Copy

I'll bet most posters here have done the same. So long as SJWs can get you fired for disagreeing with them, countermeasures are a necessity.

[–]MisterRoid-3 points-2 points  (3 children) | Copy

Wow, you are such an insecure faggot. Downvoted for giving a shit about what others think of you.

[–]1SirKolbath2 points3 points  (2 children) | Copy

Wow, you are such an insecure faggot. Downvoted for giving a shit about what others think of you.

Says the guy giving wonderful advice like "Don't use a condom. Cum in their pussy because it feels good. You want to have as many kids as you can."

I think your opinion is pretty much irrelevant, fuckwit. There's a reason this subreddit has gone to shit. When I started here you had to earn your right to speak. I don't give a fuck what fools like you think of me. What I care about is that I'm sending signal, not noise.

Downvote as much as you like. You're the problem, not the solution. Best if in the future you keep your mouth closed. For God's sake stop telling newcomers to The Red Pill that they need to father kids with some skank.

[–]MisterRoid-2 points-1 points  (1 child) | Copy

That's a start at least! TRP is partly about not being a conformist, and if you introduce a karma requirement you are encouraging the members to be conformists.

[–]1SirKolbath2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

That's a start at least!

And now I'm supposed to suddenly give a shit about your opinion?

TRP is partly about not being a conformist,

I can tell you have a barely passing familiarity with the sidebar and poor to absent critical thinking skills. TRP is about doing what works based on evolutionary programming and sexual pressures. Being a conformist or nonconformist has nothing to do with it. If a million people do a smart thing and you don't because you're so focused on nonconformity, you're just an idiot. The group is not always wrong, and if you don't believe me, then please be nonconformist and have a delicious nightshade salad with strychnine dressing like literally no one else does. Think of how nonconformist you'll be as you writhe on the floor, foaming at the mouth and slowly suffering respiratory paralysis, but secure in the knowledge that at least you're not following those stale groupthinkers who ate lettuce and thousand island.

Thinking for yourself means recognizing those times when the herd is right just as much as it means standing alone when the herd is wrong.

and if you introduce a karma requirement you are encouraging the members to be conformists.

Some of that is unavoidable. The other thing you're doing with that is discouraging the inane, repetitive, or directly contrary posts. It would keep almost all trolls out of here, and it would prevent one or more individuals like that pyBlackass or whatever his name is from posting twelve posts a day linking back to his blog.

All of this is immaterial. This isn't your forum and it isn't mine. If you don't like how things are run here, and I see from your other comment on this post that you do not, then take your ass to another part of Reddit and open your own damn subreddit. The entirety of those who care is you.

[–]lordmainstream0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I want to thank you, as someone who’s just started looking at rp content, it’s much more easier when its filtered, thank you for you work as a mod.

[–]dontbethatguynow-1 points0 points  (4 children) | Copy

Also, kids take note: The front page of TRP today is exactly what I like to see

Mojority of posts have <100 upvotes... just a bunch of outside links.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 8 points9 points  (1 child) | Copy

I guess we'll just close up shop guys. dontbethatguynow is concerned with the posts! TRP is over. Pack it up.

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

Seems he's beingthatguynow, eh?

[–]anonmmmm1125 points6 points  (1 child) | Copy

More likes doesn't mean better. It means more appealing to the masses.

Get the difference?

Think for yourself. Stop being influenced so easily.

[–]dontbethatguynow0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

if that's the case why not hide the up/down vote buttons all together?

[–]sugarpuffextreme-4 points-3 points  (22 children) | Copy

Or you can use this unknown system where if somone posts something most people dont like most people can downvote it. If they dont but only you dislike it then perhaps you should fuck off?

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 7 points8 points  (21 children) | Copy

k bye

You truly don't believe the men here are capable of delineating the good from the bad and relegating the later to down-voted oblivion?

[–]TRP VanguardWhisper9 points10 points  (0 children) | Copy

You truly don't believe the men here are capable of delineating the good from the bad and relegating the later to down-voted oblivion?

Yarp.

Source: Experience.

TRP is 80% percent losers, and that's how we like it. Because TRP is for helping losers. And thus if there aren't a lot here, it must be failing to reach those who need it.

However, reddit is built around the idea that everyone's opinion has equal value, which works fine for cat pictures, but not so great for TRP. If we could stop people from voting on posts for a year after subscribing, we would.

As it is, we have to play dictator, which we are not at all reluctant to do.

Anyone who doesn't like it is free to create a competing alternative.

[–][deleted] 14 points15 points  (13 children) | Copy

Consider your sources. The vast majority of guys here are just getting started or are angry at something.Watch for flaired members' posts, check post history, and realize that points and upvotes here mean NOTHING (since the vast majority of voters don't know TRP yet, they vote with their opinions, not their knowledge). Opinions are common, everybody has one and you never need to defend an opinion. Knowledge, you need to work for that, and you will need to defend your base. Few have knowledge.

That's why you see pandering feel good posts upvoted to the moon, but zero flaired comments in the massive "attaboy!" comment section. See if the EC's agree. Otherwise realize there are a lot of blind here who are unwittingly leading more blind, often in the wrong direction.

Add to that the incels, the agendas, the hopeless smurfs that will never get it, and the general tallcrab poppybuckets here just to flex their egos and prove their internet badassery by calling someone a cuck. All these people can vote. And brigade. If the only reason you're on a site is destruction, you should really think if you are wasting your time.

Pareto principle, Dunning Kreuger.

Build something. Add value. Or at least shut up and learn a little before spouting your entitled shallow opinion.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (12 children) | Copy

I too am new here, and to Reddit in general, and just assumed, perhaps erroneously, that a natural selection of ideas might occur in a marketplace this large.

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (11 children) | Copy

The demographic is heavily weighted here.

Trying to alter the inbred Disney worldview society has been forcefeeding you your whole life requires you having the ability to drop your ego and realize that you were wrong. Your whole life.

That's a huge jump for most guys on here because the reason most guys are here is that their own ego-protection hamster is spinning so fast to reconcile the cognitive dissonance inherent in the idea that your entire relationship/sexual/understanding of the dynamic is fundamentally flawed. You've been fed shit your whole life but agreed wholeheartedly when mommy said it was caviar.

That's a big hit for an overworked ego-protection rodent.

It was a disaster. No one would accept the program. Entire crops were lost.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (9 children) | Copy

So at what point would the collective "you" advocate a closed group of the like-minded?

[–][deleted] 8 points9 points  (2 children) | Copy

First, the purpose of this sub is NOT to debate if RP principles work... that's irrefutable.

Check the rules for posting content guidelines.

I would never want a closed group.

Despite the chaff that has to be blown away, it's a necessary evil to glean the grain from winnowing. No new food means the village begins to die.

Separating the chaff from the wheat appropriately will always be the problem.

Also, the sub is here to actually help newbies, if they can unplug. I know it's why I come back. I don't come for the circlejerk. (Except thursdays... free reacharound Thursdays are the best!) Most won't get it.

Any community needs mods focused on the task at hand.

Start up your own sub, make yourself a mod but do not moderate content of discussion and see how far you get before it devolves into chaos.

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

Fair enough ...

[–]2mental_models1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

fantasy field-report Fridays are a close second. I was tempted to post an HB3 field report just for the shock value.

I agree that unplugging newbies is one of the best things about TRP.

Also agree that the mods job is challenging.

[–]alphasquatch50 1 points1 points [recovered] | Copy

I think I'm just trying to see if this is a place for me and my ideas. Having read most of the side-bar info, and being pretty literate otherwise, I believe that I have always held a predominately redpilled worldview and have a lifetime of wisdom to share, as a teacher, father, husband and ... man.

[–]1SirKolbath2 points3 points  (2 children) | Copy

[–]Do not send modmail to my personal inboxCrazyHorseInvincible[M] 2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Annnnnnnnnnddddd let's make that tempban longer.

Seriously, don't be a jackass. Wandering in here telling us all over and over how wise and alpha you are. That just screams overcompensation.

I'm hoping if I put you in read-only mode for a while that wisdom should be demonstrated, not advertised. But if you had wisdom, you'd know that, so I am not hopeful.

We'll see what you're like in two months.

[–]Self-honest0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Yep. In a nutshell. It's not easy.

[–]Endorsed Contributorex_addict_bro5 points6 points  (3 children) | Copy

They aren't.

Most of my comments against video games were downvoted to oblivion because "in moderation it is okay". Most dudes writing such comments were already long time posters of RPG, porn and/or cannabis related subreddits. Go figure.

[–]Modredpillschool[S] 2 points3 points  (2 children) | Copy

I like video games, in moderation.

[–]Endorsed Contributorex_addict_bro1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Let me check your post history.

Oh well, some misogyny hate subreddits. Nothing related to weed or porn. One desperate cry for attention. You’re clear in my books I guess.

Jokes aside, that lockdown was the best idea since creating this subreddit. Meritocracy beats democracy every single time.

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

It's a beta pursuit, but probably wouldn't tip the alpha/beta balance.
