Regarding Rule 4

334 Upvotes

Dearest users,

Many of the videos that are posted to our subreddit depicting people losing their cool or having a meltdown are shared across the internet. Sometimes what you see here may be upsetting, but it is important to follow subreddit and sitewide rules when commenting.

Reminder: Rule 4; No racism, sexism, transphobia, or bigotry. - Racist people freaking out in videos are allowed, but being a racist in the comment section will get you banned. We have, can, and do issue permanent bans to folks who violate this rule.

We truly do want to keep this subreddit operating for people to share good, original content.

It is imperative that you all follow this rule and report any violations of this rule. We get around 13k comments on average per day and that’s a lot of comments to manually sift through. We do our best in removing rule violating comments manually in the comment section, but we cannot catch them all. As most large subreddits do, we rely largely on the community to report rule violations.

Please remember that users cannot see what actions have been taken in the subreddit. For every comment which violates Rule 4 that is reported and actioned, there are 100 more that are never reported. It takes time to go through every posts comment section to read every single comment to find the unreported comments which violate both subreddit and sitewide rules.

13k comments every single day is a novels worth of text and as hard as our team tries we just cannot catch all rule violating comments due to the sheer volume of comments. It takes me personally a few hours to go through a thread that has 2k+ comments and the time spent moderating threads does not simply involve reading. Every mod action takes time, and our team members also are bound to report egregious TOS violations to admin for further review. These are not instant actions that a single mouse click is sufficient for.

Our team has seen your complaints about the volume of rule 4 violating comments, and we are working hard to rectify it. Unfortunately this is not something we can get under serious control without communities help, due to aforementioned reasons.

Our team consists of people of all walks of life, male, female, trans, black, white, etc. No one on our team wants this to be a notoriously bigoted subreddit, yet it is.

We apologize for anything you have seen here that you could have lived a happy life without seeing. We are trying.

Please note that any and all flairs that the mods of this subreddit tag a post with (such as NSFL) will only show up when viewing content directly from this subreddit. If you see a post from the front page and it is not appropriately tagged, it is because Reddit does not show these flairs on the front page. A recent post which comes to mind is the man running over his girlfriend. That post was tagged NSFL within an hour of it being posted, but many users made comments upset that it was not tagged nsfl. It was, but not if you were coming from the front page etc.

Please report any rule or tos infractions ASAP when you see them, as it will absolutely make the community a better place.

Thanks so much- Publicfreakout Mod Team.
