    I never said only homophobes, racists and the alt-right are on there.

    I think that's a real thing lol My other half has a mate who is obsessed with the man. Beyond just no liking him, which is fair enough. But she is insane with it. Cant talk to her without her bringing him up somehow. And she lives in England :laugh:. I'm not a fan of him myself But some take it to the next level.
    On the flip there are some trump supporters who are equally deranged and would still support him even if he came out in a klan hood.

    Quite frankly, Reddit is the worst social media website precisely because your hardcore users think its better than other social media when its a bigger cluster**** due to the anonymity you have on there. On top of that, the website owners are lazy twats who IMO, have been a huge reason for the resurgence in racist bullshit that abounds the internet and society these days due to their complete inaction against racists. They always act too late over anything, like finally getting rid of the_donald subreddit today, but also do something like banning other subreddits unnecessarily, which is why they've also banned the subreddit of the lefty/commie podcast ChapoTrapHouse.

    That subreddit was like the only subreddit where you could discuss US politics from an actual leftist perspective. But they've been banned along with far-right terrorism promoting subreddits that actively call for the genocide of minorities and anyone left-wing, because ChapoTrapHouse called for the murder of...White people? Right-wing politicians? No, don't be silly. The subreddit called for the deaths of slave owners and the Reddit admins have actually banned them today as well for "advocating violence". I mean, how ****ing pathetic do you have to be to ban a subreddit for calling for the deaths of slave owners? That's how pathetic Reddit's admins are. The website's a goddamn cancer.

    I will admit to being on that site just like I am on Minds, Gab, Twatter and Facebook. :shrug

    I'm honestly surprised I've not been given the ban hammer on Twitter.

    Doesn't sound like something to be proud about, mate.

    Is Parler just a massive echo chamber though?

    Or are you all eating each other out on there?

    It's echo chambery in the same way that you can make Twitter echo chambery, though there's definitely fewer people from the left.

    There's dissagreement for sure.

    I stay away from anything political online if I can help it, so haven't been anywhere near those sub-Reddit's and can't comment on them. I go on there for science, games, football, the Japanese stuff I'm into, and pics of dogs and cats! :laugh: Out of those I haven't seen anything that negative, just people having fun with those topics. I'm sure there is other places on there that are a lot like that 4chan place etc.

    I've had a few, the ones that stand out from memory is one where I was dissagreeing with somebody who thinks that Biden will actually be tough on China, the other on all the crying conservatives are doing about how Trump isn't doing anything in regards to the rioting and CHOP and all that nonsense.

    Mate, do you remember what you were like on TFF during the Scottish Independence referendum?

    Why don't you **** 4 of them off and keep this place and another, or two? Christ, man. There's debate to be had with the living as well.

    I hope you get banned from all of social media, apart from here.

    I suppose that's pretty likely because when you fall out on one thing you can all at least agree on the core principles of racism, homophobia and al-right shit
