u/ThorGBomb Jan 27 '22 edited Jan 27 '22

It’s bringing into focus a very serious issue that the Reddit administration keeps ignoring.

Mods have been given too much power and authority to control their subs, to the degree they utilize their mod positions as self-serving pathways to act out power fantasies.

There are so many mods who look to find people to ban not to moderate but to enact what they deem is their form of justice.

It gives power to people who usually have none in their lives, to the degree that they seek out to act on their power hoping people will push the limits so they can enforce harsher punishment giving them feeing of being powerful.

It overinflates egos of people who should be on medication and regular therapy not be promoted as leaders of any kind of movements.

Mods are supposed to be the janitorial staff. Cleaning up stuff quietly without disrupting on going work. They are and never were to be considered leaders of the company. They are supposed to be ghosts who occasionally speak out.

But when you add in a mix of uneducated inexperienced in life individuals who are usually non-social and non-working individuals who rather willingly spend their time on moderating a sub than engaging with others, and give them authority they will abuse it.

Reddit admins need to consider taking away some authority and power from mods and or include pathways for the subreddit members to get rid of or downgrade mods to lower authority levels.

Because we keep seeing a pattern be repeated now

Mods act out of power hunger desires to be focal and vital to a subreddit

When they receive constructive and real criticism they utilize the fringe comments to justify shutting down any discussion and calling it a brigading attack.

Most people who commented on the last issue were not from outside the subreddit they are long term followers of the subreddit and dismissing their views and thoughts as brigading is just a shitty excuse to continue to maintain your power fantasies.

Ps: the 21 year old never worked anarchist is not someone who can reflect the mindset of the subreddit members. When you have nurses who see constant deaths and get death threats but get sued to stay in the hospital to continue to work for pennies while the hospital board members and executives receives millions in bonuses, when you have stoarage and facility workers working 60+ hour weeks and can barely have time to have a proper sleep much less anything else.

Then promoting someone who has never worked and considers themselves an anarchist is just another slap in the face to anyone in this movement

I’m not a mental health professional but this Doreen person seems like they have serious issues… I read their Facebook posts about the sexual assault they committed.. they admit to assaulting their partner multiple times and then say they are traumatized from it. it was nauseating. They blatantly refuse to take responsibility for the SA and for the Fox News fiasco. It is egregious that they allowed Doreen to be a mod again after the censoring and controlling. This is not someone competent or honorable or qualified to mod this sub or any sub for that matter. Edit to say thanks for the awards.

I saw that post where she “takes responsibility”. You know the post where she blames her SO for cause her to rape her SO. It’s her SOs fault she developed depression and started being sexually abusive.

What a complete and total piece of shit.

Taking responsibility is “there is no good excuse for what I did. Nothing my SO did justifies my actions. Upon reflection I sought therapy to help myself work these issues. I also paid for my SOs treatment and we ended things. I am not ready to be in a relationship.” Her message was “my SO wouldn’t have sex with me so I sexually assaulted them. But I feel bad about it and it’s not my fault.” Victim blaming to the highest degree.

u/DrPikachu-PhD Jan 27 '22

That's probably why the mods have been bought off. How convenient that Fox just happened to approach the absolute worst possible representative of the sub. That couldn't have been intentional...

Fox just happened to approach the absolute worst possible representative of the sub

Wait till you hear about the other mods. Apparently, the mods discussed among themselves and it was decided that abolishwork was the best mod to represent antiwork at Fox news.

I mean, if the 2nd best mod they've got to be the face of the mod team is a 21 year old whose never actually had a job before - then yeah, a 30-something year old dog walker who works 10-15 hours a week is legitimately the best Mod they've got.

u/zyl0x anti-Capitalist Jan 27 '22

Wait, you mean to tell me that the moderators aren't like the rest of us who have to actually work for a fucking living and don't have the energy to moderate a cesspool like reddit during the ratty scraps of free time we have left over?

u/NetworkMachineBroke Jan 27 '22

Which either means the mods have terrible judgement or abolishwork was actually the best possible mod to send to the interview.

Not sure which is more terrifying.

It is intentional, because Fox has people specifically employed to do this. You don't need to bring in conspiracy theories here.

This is a calculated attack on the sub. I am starting to believe that someone on the mod team is trying to kill this space.

As a SA survivor reading that made me physically ill. Abusers stop trying to look like the victim challenge

Edit: literally what she described is something one of my abusers did. I feel so fucking gross, goddamn. I’m sorry but masturbating or forcing someone to touch you while they’re asleep is rape. I can’t…goddamn. And they let her back into this sub as a fucking mod.

I sexually assaulted someone, was accused of said sexual assault, and my feelings got hurt; that's why I have PTSD??

I'm embarrassed. Like most things in my life, I participate in Reddit primarily for the laughs.

But when the Kellogg's scab disruption thing was going on, I actually started some pretty meaningful dialogues irl with family members. That was real to me. Today's a bummer.

u/ryecurious Jan 27 '22

The conversations and progress you made are still real. The movement is still real too, even if this particular sub is going through shit.

In a week, it'll either be back to normal or we'll all be on a new sub talking about the same stuff. The kind of frustration workers feel from modern life doesn't just go away because a power-tripping mod did a bad interview. Don't let the circling vultures pick away at the movement just because we hit our first real stumbling block.

Keep in mind you can buy people’s accounts. Even accounts that are years old aren’t necessarily genuine.

To be honest, all the mods need to step down and a new group should be chosen by the users, it's the only reasonable or acceptable way to move forward, and the ONLY way to begin taking care of the issue. The problem is.... the mods letting it happen lol

but where to?

edit: I've seen like a dozen notifications about answers recommending a certain new place which I've already joined. Yet when I open my comment, not a single answer is shown. So I suppose something is going on here blocking the reference. I'm not going to comment that, but thanks to all of you who answered!

edit2: before my first edit, my comment was stuck at one upvote, now it constantly gets more. What in the levitating intercourse is going on here???

Automod is silently removing posts that reference these other subreddits.

But you can type "/r/" followed by "work" and then "reform" all as one string.
