The problem with Reddit is that you have to post things in communities. There’s no option to just explore content. Which basically means that random people have control over your posts.
This would be fine if people weren’t strict about it. But that’s not the case. For example, if there’s a subreddit about posting images of red frogs or something like that, and you have the audacity to post a pink frog, you’ll get perma banned from the community. Mods are able to just remove a post and warn you about what you did, but in most cases, that’s not what happens.
Not only that, but mods will get away with being rude to users. There is an obscure form to report mods, but don’t waste your time with that. For one thing, they keep their usernames anonymous, and you need to type in their username in order to report them. Another thing is that you have to give them an explanation and send links to where everything happened, which is completely unnecessary. One more thing is that admins never actually look at mod report forms, they only have it there so that people won’t leave their site.
I had fun with this site at first, but this moderator problem is too big for me to want to stay. And the only subreddits I’ve seen that either aren’t toxic or have good mods, only have about five members in them.
Also, don’t bother reporting this review again, It’s copy pasted. I’m sorry if the first amendment is too much for you people to handle, though.
Edit: Actually, come to think of it, why isn’t there an option to just report modmail? I mean l, I get it, they’re voluntarily doing the admins job, but if they’re not good at it, then there’s no reason to let them stay on Reddit.
Edit: Both me and my brother just got banned for ban evasion. All I did was contact a mod of a subreddit that I evaded a ban for in the past. Did you really have to drag my brother into this? And why wasn’t I warned before getting the ban?
Reddit is an echo chamber filled with blue haired asexuals and people with fake penises. I used to love reddit back in 2014, was a nice progressive place to find funny, interesting, and educational topics. But it has tried to be more and more “progressive” everyone month that passed. They have banned all forums that oppose radical leftist ideology. No one reads the articles before they upvote post and comment on them. They think all white people are racist and that all white people are millionaires and never work or have bad days. Full of people that literally do nothing but complain and fuel their jealousy. If you are a sane person this app will drive you insane as it have me as you start to wonder how this participation trophy generation will ever make it on their own. These people turn the good ideas and intentions of left politics like tackling climate change and the wage gap even harder as they convince everyone that unless you believe all white people wake up trying to kill black people or believe the only way to save America is through turning the USA into USSR 2.0 then you are evil. Stay away from this community. Even Facebook is more intellectual than this and that’s saying something.
Unfortunately, many of the subreddits on this application is controlled by many inexperienced, immature moderators who don’t do their jobs appropriately. Their judgment is often based on personal opinion rather than Reddit policy. Censorship and prejudice is becoming more and more apparent. And nothing is being done. A post about a man donating millions is given top page priority. But when you post an article about the same donator breaking numerous laws and committing disgusting crimes. Said post is removed. It’s become less about an app designed for people to discuss topics they’re interested. And more so an ad revenue. You pay to be on top here. It’s the same people over and over that get their articles viewed and commented. While factual, important information is frequently casted to the side.
I wasn’t sure who to contact giving an idea about the app, but I just recently got Bluetooth hearing aids. They’re connected to my phone all the time, and will deafen my surroundings by like 30-40% if a sound is playing on my phone. But I usually have sound off for videos when searching Reddit, and it still deafens my surroundings even when the video’s sound is disabled. Instagram doesn’t give me an issue and I have my videos silenced on there too, it only deafens my surroundings when I turn the sound on for a video on that app. It would be greatly appreciated if you guys could implement this or fix this issue.

I never write reviews but this app has frustrated me enough. So overall it’s a good app for viewing the different sub forms and general Reddit stuff. However the live stream has gone from ok to absolute crap on the last update. It randomly flips to the next live stream, or it has “tuning” issues, or constant connection errors, or just freezes. It’s so bad that I rarely watch any live streams anymore, it’s guaranteed it will do at least one of the issues I listed above. I use to be able to watch entire live streams, now I’m lucky if I can watch one for 5 mins.
Reddit has a lot of great people, interesting posts, and entertaining threads. However, there are a lot of toxic people in the platform that think they know everything or are immature and can’t handle differing views. Furthermore, Reddit has exposed themselves to biased to the left and has actively taken down conservatives and their content for “violating guidelines”, which is really just code word for “we don’t agree with you so we’re throwing you out.” Reddit, like many platforms, no longer respects the concept of free speech.
Got banned because I hurt some simps feelings.. the moderator had the audacity to smack talk me, then mute my ability to reply like a coward. Wouldn’t expect anything less. Pretty hilarious to see the obsession with “wholesome” and “pure” articles. It’s a bubble and if they get scared they kick you out of their bubble. Later found out they don’t get payed, so I took a step back and tried to imagine the type of person this mod was. Definitely a beta male, too scared for the real world.
Reddit is a great place a browse memes, puppies, jokes, and overall is a great app to kill time on. There’s subreddits for just about everything, good regulations, and a mostly welcoming community. I just recommend taking most things about politics with a grain of salt. Reddit is, from what I can tell, a largely liberal biased platform, so instead of relying on Reddit for news, read newspapers or watch news channels. Other than that, great place with great memes.

It’s nuts. It’s everything. It’s everyone. It’s reddit; an endless and deep less rabbit whole of you, or us.
I used to love reddit when I was able to talk about women's issues with other like-minded people as well as respectfully debate with people with opposing views. Recently, a bunch of feminist and lgb subs got banned and I can't do either of those things anymore. This was before the banning of just plain awful porn subs. It is my belief that they only banned the porn subs because they got called out. I have no use for reddit anymore.
