This is an unfortunate but inevitable event that will happen. Apparently it's just pure toxicity and immature behavior, with no benefits to mankind.
What if we can prove we can do better? Can we try to be non toxic and mature? Post like normal humans, respect one another, be kind? I say we try it mens, let's prove we are better than this mens(( we have a big community and reddit doesn't deserve us. Let's keep our home and grow up once and for all. Who's with me??
Fun is subjective. I personally don't find edgy remarks to automatically be funny just because it's "over the line" or whatever the wannabe teenagers seem to think.
It's just a bunch of insecure kids that are desperately seeking validation through a huge pop-culture social group on the internet.
I don't really care about anything offensive you'd possibly say, nor do I give a shit about the baiting.. it's the fact that it's pop-culture on the internet that makes me cringe hard.
Traffic, I don't check HLTV every now and then for the matches and shit. I do it to check out some new forum posts or reply to my comments on a forum post or comments on my own forum. More than half the people dwell on here because of the forums and that brings them traffic and traffic = money
I know right. Probably. However, it's probably the bettors here. And then a guy or girl goes "blah blah NaVi trash can't belive *curse words* *racist words(maybe)* and then someone goes how much? So maybe affiliate linked betting from HLTV. But anyway, besides the point right?
A reddit structure is inherently flawed. Any system that caters ultimately to the lowest common denominator is the worst one to adopt.
An upvoting/ downvoting system will only result in being populist with barely any room for opposing views or imagination.
Evidently not 0 reason. The fact that you don't understand the reason doesn't mean there is one.
Now if you were to give an example to prove your claim, that would be acceptable but blanket statements don't serve the purpose.
The fact that you think a straightforward statement from me could be a bait says more about you than it does about me. I wasn't being naive because I've seen things on threads that got deleted later that completely warrant their deletion.
"Harmless" is a very difficult thing to find on HLTV with the number of edgy teenagers on here.
Yes I like this input. There has to be some way where all the toxic kids get banned and their alts, idk if there'll be a new technology. Maybe an algorithm will be used where it just automatically deletes comments that are racists, sexist, and discriminating in any way??
Keep the forums running, keep our community and friends together, show people we can turn a toxic forum into a mature and kind place, with virtually no racism, sexism and discriminating anymore. We can do it!
Moderation is fuck awful.
Don't get me wrong I do my fair share of trolling on here. Especially when any NA team wins. But it's mostly in fun.
I also don't post threads rating pros girlfriends or talking about what the gayest country is.
So I mean. You could literally probably pay a couple of the really high traffic users here a pittance and get it cleaned up pretty easily.
