[QUOTE=Mr. Rolenys;37461928]There are almost 17k comments there and Obama has answered only 10 times. That's it. Pretty disappointing if you ask me. The purpose of it all? [URL="https://my.barackobama.com/page/s/reddit"]This.[/URL][/QUOTE] Presidential website has a Meme. Is he cool now?
[QUOTE=Tuskin;37462479]Presidential website has a Meme. Is he cool now?[/QUOTE] It is uncanny how similar this is to Obama doing an AMA on reddit. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UeS-Xb5u4-U[/media]
[QUOTE=Mr. Rolenys;37461928] The purpose of it all? [URL="https://my.barackobama.com/page/s/reddit"]This.[/URL][/QUOTE] oh jeez
[QUOTE=Mr. Rolenys;37461928]There are almost 17k comments there and Obama has answered only 10 times. That's it. Pretty disappointing if you ask me. [/QUOTE] He did the AMA for 30 minutes, 3 mins per question is fairly quick if you ask me
ShitRedditSays in a nutshell :v: [video=youtube;6ZPt-X6RPGY]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ZPt-X6RPGY[/video] Point being it is ironically enough one of the biggest shitholes on reddit. The majority of people on reddit hate them, they blow a lot of things out of proportion. Given, some things they post there are actually redditors being fucking morons or creepy neckbeards, but whatever. I think it was kinda cool for Obama to do this, he seems to give very articulate answers. Much like his speeches IMO [EDITLINE]Edit[/EDITLINE] Wonderful 500th post
I generally dislike reddit because they take the credit FP deserves.
Oh man. Reddit hate.
[QUOTE=ZombieDawgs;37461397]Except reddit [I]doesn't[/I] have memes everywhere, I regularly visit /r/tribes (shocker) and they actually actively dislike people that use memes, they're not as bad as Facepunch (where the mere mention of something remotely similar gets you bombarded with insulting comments) Just because of the sections reddit autosubscribes you to (/r/funny, /r/gaming, /r/fffffffuuuuuuuuuuuu, etc) doesn't represent the entire site. It's like this for Facepunch, Lmao pics, General discussion and Sensationalist headlines don't represent the entire forum, do they? No. So when you make a statement about a website you don't know anything about, try actually looking at it before you do.[/QUOTE] well my main point of that posts still stands, saying reddit is racist, sexist, etc is no different than saying Facebook and YouTube is racist sexist, etc. All these very popular 1 million+ member sites have some sort of group feature or section if you will, that allows them to make whatever they want and have nearly anything they want on it. And there are some really popular bigoted FB pages btw
Honestly, where do you guys go when you're on Reddit. You guys make it seem like you're on /r/Atheism and /r/f7u12 all the time. Don't like the layout? Get Reddit Enhancement Suite. [editline]29th August 2012[/editline] godamn automerge breaker
[QUOTE=thisispain;37461460]can't i just legitimately hate reddit? for it's stupid and painful method of arranging posts, for its completely asinine vote-up-or-down system, its useless moderators, and worst of all its constant regurgitation of shit nobody cares about.[/QUOTE] also it's pedophilia
[QUOTE=Emperor Scorpious II;37458781]Obama comes onto FP, makes a thread in GD and then, [highlight](User was banned for this post ("gimmick" - verynicelady))[/highlight][/QUOTE] The thing with AMAs on Reddit is that they're usually pre-arranged; big names have to verify that they are the real deal before they can get the go-ahead and make an AMA. If the president did something like that of Facepunch, we'd have an admin in the second post stating he's legit.
[QUOTE=Wootman;37461505]Reddit has a terrible site layout jesus christ.[/QUOTE] It's better in some ways because it doesn't push new comments into back pages where nobody will see and keeps discussions in relevant places to eachother. On facepunch 3 discussions can be going on in a single page and get in a mess because you can't see what's going on. On reddit meme shit circlejerk posts got upvoted to the top by 13 year olds on the default subreddits. I'd also like to point out that I regularly see people directly copy and paste reddit posts onto facepunch ( replies and OPs ).
I wonder what happens if he uses 9Gag instead
Reddit is such an eyesore to navigate.
[QUOTE=Rammaster;37463505]Reddit is such an eyesore to navigate.[/QUOTE] Honestly I really don't get how it's that bad, it take half an hour to get used to and then you're sorted.

[QUOTE=itisjuly;37463559]Clicking a "thread" sends you to a different website, what's up with that?[/QUOTE] Because reddit isn't a typical forum, it's a link aggregator.

Jesus, as a regular lurker of 4chan, I gotta say, you redditors and facepunches get way to worked up over little insults. Like one little insult causes you guys to go into a verbal cagematch. Most boards on 4chan at least don't get worked up over little arguments.

[QUOTE=Pierrewithahat;37463752]/v/ would like to disagree :v:[/QUOTE] /v/ is only really like that during the day. What happens is the angsty 15 year olds come on and shit talk the people who legitimately want to talk about games. At night though most of them are asleep thankfully. For example, posting a thread about halo during the day would get bombarded with shitposts and sages, but posting it at night would probably start a huge discussion.
GAWD, Why can't my Prime Minister be this cool? DAMN HARPER, GET YER SHIT TOGETHER.

[QUOTE=dass;37463886]What if we get Romney in here?[/QUOTE] FP would probably crash spectacularly from the shitstorm.
[QUOTE=dass;37463886]What if we get Romney in here?[/QUOTE] He would be burned at the stake.
Considering the fact that Reddit was downed temporarily by The President's AMA is a pretty impressive feat.
Facepunch is still the best
