For all those that don't know, the admins on this site are the mods on the main occupywallstreet subreddit (r/occupywallstreet).

The main occupywallstreet subreddit had a minor meltdown, as a rogue moderator appointed anti-libertarians to moderate (nebula42). He/she has since been removed. This subreddit was created in response.

And also, I don't post here anymore because it's too chaotic. Though I certainly enjoyed my time here.

This is a circle jerk:

http://www.reddit.com/r/AllOccupy/ (248 readers)

This is where the action is:

http://www.reddit.com/r/Politics/ (1,220,759 readers)

This is why they are both a waste of time:


Reddit r/Politics exists to perpetuate America's Demopublican two-puppet political system: What you see posted on Reddit r/Politics is NOT what was SUBMITTED but what was APPROVED by their censorship system. And what Reddit calls "Karma" is actually a measure of - and psyop pressure for - groupthink conformity:

By the way, there is a very new bot that's posting all the stories that are removed by moderators from r/politics (r/modsarekillingreddit). Some fairly interesting stuff pops up there, and I think it is changing how they moderate.

AllOccupy is at least a "safe refuge" under different management. r/occupywallstreet has very little discussion going on. Actually, all the occupy specific stuff is pretty much a circlejerk. The discussion here has been better.

I do agree that karma trains a person to groupthink. The active people people just want karma, and they say whatever gets them karma.
