Open Letter to Steve Huffman and the Board of Directors of Reddit, Inc – If you believe in standing up to hate and supporting black lives, you need to act
On June 1, you shared a letter on Reddit’s blog “Remember the Human – Black Lives Matter”. In this letter, you claim “as Snoos, we do not tolerate hate, racism, and violence, and while we have work to do to fight these on our platform, our values are clear.”
As of today, neither you nor any other Reddit admins have shared this letter anywhere on reddit.com. However, the response to this message was swift on Twitter, where you were rightfully labeled as hypocritical based on your long and well-recorded history of defending racism and white supremacy on this site.
Among the many responses was this message from former CEO of Reddit, Ellen Pao.

Hey there everybody! I'm Hasan Minhaj. Hope you are all doing well during these uncertain times. My show 'Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj' is back on Netflix with a brand new episode streaming right now! You can also catch the main story from each episode on YouTube! In our most recent episode I covered America's growing issues with housing and how the coronavirus pandemic is making problems even worse for renters. Also! Follow Patriot act on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
UPDATE: Thanks for all of the questions! I have to sign off now to keep working on next week's episode of Patriot Act. In the meantime, check out yesterday's episode about how coronavirus is effecting renters streaming on Netflix and YouTube now! https://youtu.be/MPFPBzr7FgY... keep reading on reddit ➡
The RA post from the other day about the woman who didn't want to have anal sex with her fiance despite trying it in the past with other partners had WAY too many people proving rape culture still exists. How?
By suggesting that because a woman has done a sex act in the past, she's wrong if she doesn't want to do it again.
By suggesting that a woman is obligated to try something with you just because she's tried it with someone else.
That anal sex "comes standard" and is something anyone has the right to expect.
By largely concluding that she was the asshole for saying no to a sex act.
So, just a reminder: you are never entitled to a sex act with another person. No matter how many times they have done it in the past, who they've done it with, or if you're literally in the middle of sex and they change their mind and want to stop. No matter what. You are absolutely entitled to end a relationship if you're not getting the amount of or kind of sex you want but you are not e... keep reading on reddit ➡
Just 53 years ago, state laws banning interracial marriage were overruled by the Supreme Court. Martin Luther King was assassinated one year later. That is younger than almost every person alive’s grandparents. The civil war ended 155 years ago. 155 years ago an entire race was chained, beaten, raped, and bought and sold as property. In my view, it is fairly astonishing how much can and has changed for the good over two people’s lifetimes. Over the span of human history, that is hardly any time at all.
None of this is to say that further progress is not necessary. It is to say that another revolution over race is likely unnecessary in America. If history is any indicator, it will not take much time.
I always see men explaining that women are "insecure about aging" and maming these claims that we are so sad to lose our "power" and that for women youth is sooooo wonderful and aging is sooo awful because men dont treat us "nice" outside of youth.
15-24 was a NIGHTMARE looking back. And all the while i was always told (by mostly men honestly) "oh enjoy it these are the BEST years you have so much POWER right now and it will go away" "you know POWER goes sharply downhill for women every year." And "find a man now because these are your best chance years to attract a quality partner".
What. A. Fucking. Joke.
Now that I'm on the other side. Such a lie that youth is your best years. Those years SUCK for women. Yes there is a lot of fun. For sure. Carefree. Exciting. Getting attention and praise for minimal effort. But that's a shiny gloss over the seriously insane things going on below the surface. You can't even properly enjoy those "fun" years because for one thing most of us are wa... keep reading on reddit ➡
In this video, you will watch a Chinese Mage Bot that solo farms ZG by stepping on air, jumping on air, walking on air, and using abilities on mobs from the air while the bot itself cannot be harmed by mobs' abilities or spells.
These bots are happily still farming and selling gold as we speak b/c Blizzard takes no action against them.
I notice that a lot of commemorations of Christopher Columbus, including his holiday, came about in the late 19th century or later. What happened then to cause this new veneration of a man who was evil even by the standards of the folks who brought us the Spanish Inquisition? I also find it strange that he is commemorated so much in what is now the US, as my understanding is that he never got that far, and that the east coast of the US and Canada was instead discovered by John Cabot. If people in the US wanted to venerate an explorer, why go for Columbus and not Cabot?
I am using my sister's account to post this. She understands reddit, I don't. She will be checking the post for updates for me.
I live in Canada, they (ex and his new gf) live in the US right now. I have filed a police report in Canada, but I don't know what else I can do to get this to stop and to have them charged. The Canadian police don't seem to have many answers for me. Any advice would be helpful.
Update: Thank you for all the advice so far. I totally understand why this was locked. Thanks for the explanation mods.
If you’re trying to be a good role model for you own kids, for example, then you do it with them and they benefit from experiencing the kindness directly.
Now if you’re trying to push your act onto others via social media, you’re doing for the wrong reasons. You’re seeking external validation, which is a completely different thing and missing the point.
Valve just corrected the guild contract rewards to what they were originally intended to give and made it look like they are doing a favor to us. If u look at the battle pass website there u can see an image in which it says 2 star contracts give 200 battle points and 200 guild points. But they cut those points by half when they released the battle pass. And now when they corrected it and here we are thanking them for giving us what was promised originally.
If u look at the above link u can see u/maestro4ev made a post about it 2 days after the release, So incase someone thinks they updated the web page after the changes.

Whats the point of good corporate governance and fiscal responsibility? The companies that leveraged themselves to the moon, did stock buybacks to hyper-inflate their stock price, live on constant debt instead of good balance sheets are now being bailed out by unlimited QE. Free money to cover your mistakes. Why would anyone run a good business ever again? Just cheat and scheme and get bailed out later.
Edit: I am truly honored to be the number 1 post on WSB. To get validation from you autists and retards, the greatest American generation, is the peak moment of my life. Thank you all.
Edit 2: Many of you are saying this post is socialist. It is anti-capitalist. It is anti-wall street. It is none of that. My post is in fact about fixing capitalism so it is done the right way. Don't reward companies that are managed poorly and don't invest their profits wisely. Capitalism is about survival of the fittest and rewarding the winners not the schemers and cheaters.

It is very frustrating to post pictures and instantly get spammed with people offering extremely unhelpful insights, or flat out insulting. This will NOT make newbies actually listen, this does not help fish. I posted pictures of my new goldfish and immediately I was told that I had bought a common when I hadn't, when I said he was a fantail they said I was wrong even though all they had was a side shot of him where you couldn't accurately see his tail fully. I was then told that I must not have a right sized tank (ridiculous to assume that based off small cropped photos of individual fish), I didn't cycle, the plastic is bad, etc etc etc. If I was a new fish owner I would not have listened to them at all. I know what I'm doing, my tanks are cycled, my plastic ornaments coated in sealant, etc etc. But immediately insulting people is not how to teach them or help them.
And can we stop with the constant insulting people who have fake plants? I dont like real plants, I use fakes that ar... keep reading on reddit ➡
So, as a general thing throughout my life, I’ve been my nmoms “golden child” like, Ive always achieved and done very well in most things I’ve been apart of, or I have been in leadership in things I’ve been apart of, but I generally had very little support from my mom when I actually did those things.
A great example is my time in 4h (google it if you don’t know what it is I don’t wanna explain it) where I had pretty much no support from my mom other than she let me sign up for it, but when I had to go to meetings and be places on time, she would always yell at me about how she hated it and hated the people in it cause they didn’t like her. Even one day where I was supposed to be showing my lamb, last year, and it was the first day of fair and I had to be there on time because we had to feed the animals and get them ready to be shown, my mom refused to take me because I told her we needed to leave or we would be late and then she just said she wasn’t going to take me to it.

We’ve seen this trope a couple of times with a number of robots. But what if this concept was applied to a human (or ghoul) companion?
Let’s say we stumble upon a lone Ghoul in a soldier’s outfit guarding a military checkpoint. We can talk to him, and he will mention that his commanding officer sent him there to be man the area. You can ask him what group he’s with, but he will be confused and say the United States Army, as if it’s obvious. If mention the war, he won’t know what you’re talking about.
You then have the option to tell him you are a representative sent by his commanding officer to give him new orders. This will require a speech check, but, if successful, he will follow you.
Now, this character acts as a typical man before the war. A die-hard patriot and communist-hating military man. He would mention things such as his wife and kids back home and how he always keeps his eye out for “dirty commie spies.”
However, he seems to have another personality - one where, wit... keep reading on reddit ➡
Here are more components listed from the press release:
From my times going to sporting events and seeing people start fights and argue to the riots and violence I hear about in places like Brazil over soccer teams, I've always thought these people were laughably ignorant and just flat out childish.
These people gain absolutely nothing from their sports team winning (except for bets maybe) and lose nothing whatsoever from their team losing. They most likely dont have any financial connections to their team and I guarantee not a single player even knows they exist or even cares to meet them.
However, they'll damage property, assault, and even kill other people wearing rival jersies, etc, over a team/game that they personally benefit from in no substantial way.
It honestly baffles me.
First off, fuck this administration for dropping this rule on the anniversary of Pulse, in the middle of pride month, during a damn pandemic.
Second, this rule will not change things for most people and there is no need to immediately panic.
In short, the rule would:
