Everytime there is a subreddit quarantine I laugh.
The reasons are so absurd.

Yeah they are literally language policing now
They won't ban or quarantine bpt for being racists, but they'll quarantine waterniggas for including the n-word.

some subreddits have automods that autodelete comments with certain words
Whoever banned waterniggas is one dehydrated motherfucker
Look at offmychest. You get banned for POSTING in a certain sub.
Quarantine is not a ban. It's a "let's consider a ban," warning.
I've seen "paticipation in hate subs is grounds for a ban"
Banning is meaningless anyway, as its trivial to create another account
It's actually against Reddit's policies, but the admins threw that out of the window anyway.
Punishing people in one sub for what they did in another ?
Yeah. It's against Reddit's official policies to ban users for posting in a sub.
The admins don't give a fuck so it means nothing.
AgainstHateSubreddits is a hate subreddit, but it has the same agenda as the admins so it's also unbannable.
I'm never surprised when centralised pwer is abused
You gotta decentralise in the first place
Hey, goldfish, if you're still here, whatever happened to your Reddit account. I heard you talk about it a while ago. But I don't think anyone asked why the admins killed it.
Admins of a site acting badly is about as surprising as a dictator acting badly.
Did the admins just nuke it from orbit? They've done that before.
Usually they suspend now.

They refuse to log him in, if you try to log in as go1dfish the error message is different from the rest, or so it was about half a year when another nabber looked at his account
On injecting global policy into people's listing source: it may already work that way, but please display it as two separate listing sources, I don't want user actions to be mixed up with admin ones
Teacher redpills students against socialism by combining all scores on a test and dividing equally, giving the same grade whether they earned an A or an F. (magaimg.net)

Better support for participating without it may come in the future.

he didn't redpill anyone with a single test, maybe the highscoring students, but most of them got a better grade than they normally would have
for the redpill to truly set in you have to do at least an entire semester of this shit, preferably an entire year, demoralizing the highscoring students and eventually bringing the entire class down
[–]+2 -4 points 2 months ago
the alternative is for the highscoring students to start forcing the lower ones to study with whatever means they can, which is also a good redpill, because 100% of the time this is how it works in real life as well

wouldn't that suggest socialism works though since it will make all of them stronger students?
[–]+2 -1 points 2 months ago
if that higher average grade is all you care about, then yes socialism did work in their case
but you have to look at HOW they got the higher grade, in the best case scenario where the lower scoring students are just a bit dumb and need a bit more tutoring, then the only loss is the tutors' time, which still isn't good. it rarely goes so well, most of the times you get people that won't make it, either because they simply can't or because they won't just won't cooperate. now we're going down the path of violence and deception, this is what I meant by "whatever means they can": issuing punishments such as marginalization, beatings, designating them as a target for bullying, actively trying to get the problem kids out of the class either by using the previously mentioned punishments to get them to transfer on their own, or by lying to the teachers and getting them expelled. there's also the path of the entire class cooperating to cheat on the tests, which then becomes an arms' race of escaping the teacher's surveillance
looking at the above, you can see the parallels with how real life socialism/communism has "worked"
socialist countries are successful?

No, not usually, or at least for long.

Ya, and the quality of the classroom itself would have to also be degraded by the corrosive negative incentives of socialism.
This is a good start to explaining it but it doesn't show the real problem. I mean, yes, the immorality of denying people ownership over their own choices is evil, no question. But the consequentialist reason why socialism is 'wrong' is FAR from demonstrated by this single example.
i get the sentiment, but it'd more accurate if the teacher capped the scores very low and "kept" all of the points he subtracted as the central authority, for distribution as he sees fit.
