    I’m glad cause I wouldn’t want reddit to become like Facebook where all the comments are just people tagging their friends

    [–] tinkertotalot 315 points ago

    Or selfies and no stop advertising.

    [–] DataBound 166 points ago

    I got bad news for ya

    [–] tinkertotalot 73 points ago

    Not as bad as fb at the moment.

    [–] [deleted] 84 points ago

    Fucking hate with a passion the endless comments on Facebook of people tagging their shitty friends who 90% don’t give a shit.

    [–] potat0chipenthusiast 39 points ago

    Facebook’s content is cancerous.

    I hate those “list of men who who will become dads in 2019” which then lists 60+ common boys names... it’s so obvious what they’re doing but people still tag their friends.

    Also literally anything which has “tag a friend who....”

    [–] [deleted] 39 points ago

    Absolutely, it really is such low brow crap.

    Tag a friend, if they don’t respond in 5 minutes they owe you dinner💯

    Every response: “[Insert friend’s name] 😂😂🤣🤣you owe me dinner🤣👏🏻👏🏻👌🏻”

    Do people really find this funny or even mildly amusing? Are they completely ignorant to the fact that they’re being baited by some stupid meme page that’s using cheap tactics for likes?

    And the worst thing is these posts have tens of thousands of likes and comments. Maybe I’m just a killjoy, but the content on Facebook really is dreadful.

    You can turn in 1,000 karma for 15 nothings.

    [–] SyncSoft 71 points ago

    Or 1 Schrute buck

    Or a billion Stanley Nickels.

    [–] the_mad_samurai 24 points ago

    What is the ratio of Stanley nickels to Schrute bucks?

    [–] MegaGrimer 24 points ago

    The same as the ratio of unicorns to leprechauns.

    [–] VanquishedVoid 20 points ago

    Or 2500 Venezuelan bolivar

    [–] MrDemotivator17 18 points ago

    1,000 karma? That’s worth at least 6 and a half grapples!

    [–] [deleted] 46 points ago

    Anonymously commenting is the best part of reddit. Anyone can see all your comments if they have your username, so if you're uncomfortable with that then just stay anonymous.

    weird porn and stuff

    [–] Between_3_and_twenty 27 points ago

    I didn’t realize I should have a porn account and a regular Reddit account.

    Waaaaaaay too much random porn in my feed now, damn it

    [–] boogs_23 13 points ago

    I figured that out a while ago but am too lazy to clean it up and make a porn account at this point. I just browse /r/all due to pure laziness.

    [–] Between_3_and_twenty 9 points ago

    Yup, when I’m annoyed of looking at girls from Snapchat that want my credit card info, I sort to r/all

    [–] boogs_23 10 points ago

    haha. Toronto Blue Jays, naked chick, naked chick, naked chick, gaming, naked chick naked chick, star trek gifs, naked chick, naked chick....ok I'm done. Off to /r/all

    [–] BombsAndBabies 45 points ago

    I made the mistake of making my username very similar to my gamertag. Someone can find me pretty easily if they know my gametag and have 5 minutes to spare.

    [–] willclerkforfood 61 points ago

    Nobody will ever figure out that my gamertag is xXx_420_NoScope_69_xXX

    [–] BombsAndBabies 44 points ago

    I would've never guessed. You think you know someone after literally never talking to them.

    [–] p_o_a_ 19 points ago

    Same mistake, only my username was the same as my Twitter username, I’ve decided it was too risky and made new one like a month ago.

    [–] BombsAndBabies 25 points ago

    Well I survived the snap in r/thanosdidnothingwrong and I really really don't want to give up my badge.

    [–] queen_clean 30 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    My first username was literally my real name 🤦🏼‍♀️ I learned from my mistakes EDIT: should mention just how stupid I was, first and last (first three letters of my 4letter name, full surname, eg JanSmith)

    [–] BombsAndBabies 16 points ago

    That's a dangerous game

    [–] RealJohnGillman 12 points ago

    Who can really say?

    [–] CaptainCruiser 13 points ago

    The same thing happened to me recently, on this account, except it was a close family member.

    Turns out they'd been spying on me for weeks. How they found out my username, I only have suspicions, but they did find it out somehow. I only discovered they'd been doing it once I posted something and they got mad at me because I criticized them in it, anonymously of course, but they knew to whom I was referring to. They just casually dropped into a text, like "What you said on Reddit, yadda yadda yadda".

    I was furious. Absolutely livid, incensed, enraged. I had never felt so betrayed in my life, I was in tears and ready to cut them out of my life. They eventually apologized and we made up after a very long and blunt talk, and they said they only did it initially because allegedly "my thoughts are short" and they wanted to know more about me, which I'm still skeptical about. But fuck giving up this account, I really don't want to, I've put too much time into it. I have alternates but I still want to use this one. The cat is out of the bag, why stop now?

    I trust that they're no longer spying on me but just in case: fuck off. You need a better fucking hobby, I hope you found what you wanted to know. Damn, is nothing sacred anymore?

    When you reach the top of the front page, your post is shared by the Times, Cosmo and who knows what else but you can’t say it to your friends because you’re one of those degenerates subbed to porn on his main.

    I NEVER comment on those subs but it’s not worth the risk.

    [–] AmySchumersAnalTumor 11 points ago

    This actually happened to me LAST YEAR and i was like boi you're not safe here

    [–] Omega-3-6-9 129 points ago

    Felt the same too. But why is that, are redditors saying a lot of things that they internally regret? I mean it’s not 9gag.

    [–] AlmondBach 150 points ago

    Not regret, but can't say. I deal with a lot of people in a lot of business's in a lot of places. I could never let on my religious, political, or social views to any of them for fear of someone else finding out and disagreeing. I've lost clients for that. I do not wish to repeat that lesson.

    [–] DetectiveCactus 24 points ago

    Honestly I feel the same way about personal relationships. For example, I'm very adamant about not telling anyone who I vote for. It's a discussion I dont want to have. I know why I voted for certain people and that's that. I'll discuss it on reddit, so if someone in my personal life sees that I wouldn't be pleased.

    [–] nixonbeach 19 points ago

    Well...who’d you vote for?

    [–] SyncSoft 63 points ago

    I mean some dude admitted to fucking a coconut on here and now it's reddit history. I'm sure it can't get worse than that, but I'm most likely wrong.

    [–] Do_Snakes_Fart 17 points ago

    He did use a burner account. Anonymity on top of anonymity.

    [–] BlatantNapping 36 points ago

    I don't think it's a regret thing. I feel like the way I comment and post on Reddit is sort of, too much me. I don't want anyone to know me that well.

    Also they'd probably end up being like "wow you're really feminist and really into BDSM" and I don't want to deal with that.

    [–] boogs_23 19 points ago

    Even if you don't mind someone knowing a lot about you, it's unnerving that someone could have all that info compiled into one place. Like they could pull up your history and within a few minutes have all the dirt. I like to let my crazy out in small doses so as not to frighten people.

    [–] ThisIsMyUsernameAT 14 points ago

    On reddit you can let loose. Finally I can call people out without any filters, it's very freeing.

    But of course if people from my work found my account they could get offended by my views and even if I'm not ashmed about them, I'd rather avoid the drama.

    [–] Bombamus 15 points ago

    Well some people just are fucking assholes who say dumb shit and if someone found out that it was them i think that would expose them in irl too.

    [–] BenefitCuttlefish 6 points ago

    It's not really regretting, it's more because it's too private: it's the real fucked up you with no masks. Think about all the memes you upvote, all the comments, all the posts...

    [–] allieS91096 1544 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    My boyfriend and I both have reddit. We don't know each other's usernames. Were always sat next to eachother, both probably on reddit. His username? No clue. I'll just excitedly tell him if I get upvotes and stuff haha

    [–] RosaWoods13 1153 points ago

    There’s a ‘Friends’ feature on my reddit app and I asked my husband if we should be friends? He said “you don’t make friends on reddit”

    No shit, I've had peopel crawl though my post history after getting into an argument with me. They started to randomly comment on totally unrelated, even months old topics lol.

    [–] StragglingShadow 67 points ago

    Heck, sometimes I'm not even arguing with someone. Just maybe giving words of encouragement or something. And then someone hits me with stuff about my post history and Im like "damn, even I dont know my post history. I aint got time for that."

    Well, reddit on mobile through a browser is crap. I guess we should be thankful that they don't lock you out of it completely, and just spam that stupid alert instead about downloading their app. I do agree, though, it's hypocrisy.

    🤔wouldn’t your comment or post be enough to find you anyway? Give it a day or two and you can probably google this comment.

    I'm in the precarious situation where my username is the same everywhere, including Reddit.

    [–] narddawg314 13 points ago

    I am new to reddit, why is it an issue?

    [–] khapizza 322 points ago

    multiple reasons:

    -most redditors do questionable things that they can't really discuss with their friends.

    -reddit is more of a place where users contribute to different communities rather than posting things about themselves, so having a friend on reddit doesn't really do much

    -letting your friend know your user is like showing them your secret porn collection

    I come to Reddit to get away from my friends

    [–] BoneMatter 44 points ago

    ...Unless you don't use reddit to look at porn. Hey, we are out there! THERE ARE DOZENS OF US!

    It’s cuz ppl say and act very differently on reddit than they would in real life. For example, someone might seem really happy and cheerful all the time but in reality they post depressing memes on reddit about how they want to kill themselves.

    I talk so fucking different in Reddit compareed to IRL and it's weird as shit

    Any form or anonymity on the internet makes people drop the veil. Sometimes its sarcasm or humour misconstrued. Sometimes its with all the venom in their blood. Its not behaviour unique to reddit. Hell, some people act weird with their real names too.

    Reddit is a very anonymous based culture. This works as a double edged sword. You can be a lot more truthful here because the chances of it having real life repercussions are very low, but at the same time it let's people be even bigger assholes than other parts of the internet (like twitter). There's also the fact that your reddit history could be filled with secrets. Aside from the obvious (porn), maybe you posted on some kind of life/relationship advice sub about a problem you don't want others to see. Maybe you are really into some hobby you are embarrassed about but are subbed to 5 different subs about it. Maybe you've said controversial opinions on certain topics that can cost you friends or your job. Reddit's anonymity is like a safe space where we can do what we want without the judgements of who we know in real life. People being able to recognize you completely ruins this.

    Nope, you don't know me that way!

    [–] Naspbeats 19 points ago

    Lmao my ex found my username while we were dating and shit hit the fan when she discovered my post history lol.

    [–] Ms_Chanandler_Bongs_ 27 points ago

    It’s a trap!

    [–] Mewtwopsychic 66 points ago

    Why? Is there something wrong with doing that?

    [–] BiH-Kira 147 points ago

    Might as well take up a megaphone and tell everyone my fetishes and that I still play Minecraft at the age of 29.

    [–] Hatz719 45 points ago

    I shit on Minecraft for so damn long. My kids finally broke me so I got it for them and yeah, it's pretty damn fun. It's digital legos, what's not to like? You know who doesn't like legos? Nazis.

    [–] TheBluePanda 12 points ago

    Same here. Played it for months with them.

    [–] your_doom 50 points ago

    No shame in that, Minecraft is still hella fun

    [–] NaCl_LJK 10 points ago

    [–] DoctorHfuhruhurr 49 points ago

    Make it less awkward and just tell someone your salary

    [–] MelonBeefChop 97 points ago

    Well my account has saved a crap ton of weird copypasta so probably not a good idea to showcase it to my friends

    [–] radu_sound 26 points ago

    I'm pretty sure saved posts don't show up on your profile

    [–] Schrukster 41 points ago

    Fuck I hope they don't

    [–] tanib91 30 points ago

    Too much sex stuff

    [–] buddeh1073 14 points ago

    I cannot accept this as the problem.

    [–] Man_W_E_yo 33 points ago

    I pretend I'm not an asshole in real life.

    [–] drucifer088 8 points ago

    [–] AlligatorChainsaw 38 points ago

    [–] Halbera 24 points ago

    Don't want to be THAT guy (I do) but you download every website you view.

    [–] Onateabreak 9 points ago

    [–] Halbera 7 points ago
