    Reddit continues to shoot itself in the foot

    I thought maybe Reddit was still good for totally innocuous and non-controversial topics like hobbies. If you surf or build model airplanes or whatever, you'll find like-minded people. You may not know this about me, but I'm a very skilled chef. I don't post much online about it because my efforts go much more into the actual cooking than talking about it. However, occasionally I might want to get a second opinion like whether you can get away with using an Indian grocery's ghee instead of clarifying butter yourself. So I go over to Reddit to talk about it. OMG, holy turtles in molasses, Batman! I can't even get the damn cooking forum to load.

    People from non-controversial subs largely stayed out of the crossfire between the wokefrumps and challengers, but you gotta hand it to Reddit. Now they've found a way to piss them off too. I guess I can check if communities.win has a cooking forum.

    Go Woke, go broke as they say. IMDB shot itself in the foot a few years ago as well by getting rid of their forums which were upsetting the movie studios as well as there being a rise in Right wing/Conservative opinions being posted. A lot of online newspapers don't have opinion sections anymore either. In the end even if you aren't wanting to talk about politics it just creates a hostile environment, I have left plenty of forums over the years of various types because of that.

    I was even banned from a forum because I used the term "Grammar Nazi"! Apparently the Admin was concerned that it might be offensive to holocaust survivors. Ummm yeah... ok.

    A lot of forums engage in over the top rules in general whether it be political related or not. I was on one forum where there was a popular discussion about celebrities we hate. A low brow chat but fun and we were all having a good time. The Admin decided it was too low brow and nasty for their site and closed the thread! The thing is no one really said anything that nasty. Lots of forums forget that without people wanting to use their forums they have nothing.

    Freedom of speech ends at the internet.

    Shortwave radio is the future for anyone that speaks such woke offending atrocities.
