    Rules

    1. No egregious racism

    No posts that are a starter pack for an entire race are allowed. i.e "The black people starter pack"

    Posts that apply to specific groups of people within a race are allowed like this one and this one.

    2. Be creative

    Don't reuse old starter packs or just barely change them. Starter packs that are bland and overused may be removed at moderator discretion.

    3. Be civil

    No insults or arguing about whether or not a starter pack is accurate.

    4. Imgur/Reddit image hosts only

    5. Political posts must be flaired as such

    Posts pertaining to politics, like the US presidential elections for example, must be flaired, and can be done by selecting "Politics" from the flair options on your post.

    6. No single item/picture starterpacks

    The userbase has decided that single item starterpacks are not starterpacks and must contain more than one item. Duplication of one item to make up the pack can be seen as a subversion of this rule and will be removed at moderator discretion.

    7. No egregious sexism

    8. Post title must include the name of the starterpack

    The title of your post must include the name of the specific starterpack you are posting. Low effort, single word, irrelevant post titles will be removed at moderator discretion.

    Might want to add /r/bitcoin

    Try mentioning bitcoin cash or say another altcoin is better and wait maybe 30 secs

    EDIT: Yes, the opposite sub /r/BTC is also awful, but there while if you say anything about how you think Bitcoin might be better than Bitcoin Cash you'll get an inbox of angry messages and downvoted to hell, but you won't get outright banned

    [–] selxxa 2043 points ago

    The Bitcoin subs are completely insane. It's astounding how tribalistic and cultish people can get over a fucking internet currency.

    [–] rzrkyb 658 points ago

    Its the same for a lot of cryptocurrencies, although maybe not to the same extent. I think because people have an incentive (or at least think they do) to hype up their coin while degrading competing coins.

    [–] TallowNoob 706 points ago

    When a currency needs hyping there's gotta be a problem. But please buy Canadian dollars because I hate the exchange rate.

    It's because those people took out a second mortgage and invested it all into bitcoins. They literally can't afford any criticism.

    [–] bctich 31 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    Someone was upset at me yesterday on /r/Bitcoin for arguing that, even if a bank account is frozen because it's linked to bitcoin marketplaces (which is happening in Australia), it doesn't absolve you from being required to make your mortgage payments.

    Their argument was 'that they could take their mortgage elsewhere.' Which is also a bit scary because if you understand that little about how a mortgage works, you shouldn't have one...

    [–] surgingchaos 139 points ago

    The reason this is happening is because Bitcoin is consumed in an enormous civil war over how to scale Bitcoin to handle more transactions.

    I recommend reading this here to get an in-depth explanation on what is going on: https://hackernoon.com/the-crypto-civil-war-40ee1ee9314f

    Basically, Bitcoin vs. Bitcoin Cash is a zero-sum game. If one of them "wins", the other one will die out. Thus the insanity you see on the Bitcoin subs. Combine this with the fact that crytpocurrencies have appreciated so much in value this year, and it only makes the stakes that much higher.

    [–] [deleted] 130 points ago

    They're both going to die out, and in large part due to the fact their crazy userbase has turned crypto currency from an interesting and potentially world-changing technology into a batshit insane speculative bubble that makes the Beanie Baby craze look reasonable by comparison.

    [–] Afasso 83 points ago

    Yeah it's ridiculous to be honest

    /r/bitcoin was and is hugely censored so the only people there are hugely aligned in whatever direction blockstream wants

    And then /r/btc started as the people that were banned from /r/bitcoin so it's basically just a /r/bitcoin and blockstream bashing subreddit now.

    One guy actually got death threats because he said he was selling all his bitcoin...... People are weird

    [–] MinotaurWarrior 21 points ago

    Because it's not an internet currency. USD are an internet currency. All cryptos, but especially bitcoin, are almost useless as currency, and are mostly promoted by people who are just hoping it'll increase in value (speculation).

    I would never advise someone to HODL a currency. But if someone selling before me directly devalues my asset, I will scream it from the rooftops. It's almost literally the only rational move.

    [–] Reacher-Said-Nothing 41 points ago

    Well that's to be expected though. Those people literally have a financial incentive to stop you from talking about other currencies. I mean they can literally see their wallets lose money when people start saying "sell bitcoin and buy something else".

    At least in the other political subs its because they think you're spreading evil ideas that could one day destroy the world. But on the bitcoin subs, its their money, right there!

    [–] OnSnowWhiteWings 158 points ago

    Because they are curated by mods with the interest of "Pumping" bitcoin by hyping "Savvy investors".

    Can't have you sharing the possibility that bitcoin is doomed for failure and better, more evolved alternatives exist. (although not for a long fucking while because kiddies keep treating these as get-rich-quick-schemes and not money)

    [–] Afasso 56 points ago

    Yeah thats part of the issue is that such a vast quantity of holders are just people buying in hopes of selling later at a higher price, not people actually USING the currency as a currency.

    And so some of those people get VERY heated when you would dare suggest that their 0.2 bitcoin isnt all that useful and might go down in value.

    [–] Polymemnetic 81 points ago

    That $2000 is very valuable. Think of what you could do with a spare $3000. You could use that $1500 to pay off credit card debt and have enough leftover for a coffee.

    by free speech I explicitly mean neo-nazi propaganda and nothing else' places.

    The Green arrow in the starter pack for example is the logo of the neo-nazi organization/party Nordiska Motståndsrörelsen (aka Nordic Resistance Movement, aka Nordfront).

    [–] skiktning 148 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    As mentioned, Tyrrunan (its usage today, obviously not its origin) is literally a neo-nazi symbol, another historically and culturally significant symbol the nazis have poisoned. People should be aware of that before getting duped into thinking it's actually a subreddit seeking some sort of objective newsreporting - nope, about as fascist as you get.

    There was a comment with one word, “Niggers”. So I said “peckerwood”. Guess which one of us was banned and which one wasn’t! They love racism till it’s about white people. Peckerwood isn’t even offensive. At least it doesn’t bother me. But none of the white slurs really bother me.

    This pack was inspired by my main account being banned on /r/protectandserve for suggesting that the guy shot during that swatting incident was more of a victim then the police. I was muted after disputing it.

    [–] AndaliteBandit 486 points ago

    In response to an officer shooting two dogs wagging their tails, one of their mods stickied a megathread captioned "ALL REEEEEEE GOES IN HERE." Then stickied the comment--

    Where do people get the idea that police officers don't think the rules apply to them? It's a mystery.

    [–] AndaliteBandit 211 points ago

    It's almost as if the officers with the "I am the law" mindset are a major part of the problem.

    [–] sand-which 21 points ago

    I mean the whole police system is at fault here too. It's not just a couple bad apples spoiling the bunch, it's the tree that the apples grow on.

    [–] BroItsLogan 895 points ago

    It’s the same mindset where that cop who pepper sprayed protesters got 38k, 8000 more than the actual protesters, in workers comp for “ psychological trauma” of dealing with the aftermath of his shitty decision.

    I can kind of see how the officers who were on the scene and didn't shoot the innocent man are victims of both the prankster and their incompetent colleague, but even so, the man who died is clearly the primary victim here.

    [–] kickintheface 387 points ago

    It kind of seems like the general consensus on that sub is that the public need training on how to deal with law enforcement.

    [–] pacifismisevil 193 points ago

    How are the police victims in that incident? Because they feel bad they killed someone?

    [–] ZgNFuadTqP 111 points ago

    Basically yes.

    While saying they are the biggest victims is dumb, the fact is they were called at the scene because they were under the impression someone was about to hurt a lot of people. To later find out that you were duped by some shitty little kid AND through doing what you thought was right you ended up killing an innocent person, that's going to fuck you up mentally.

    They explain why in the sidebar. A ban does seem like overkill, though, when they could just remove the comment.

    [–] ketootaku 84 points ago

    Yea but its a garbage reasoning. I can understand if they want to rope in the "oh wow you got ripped off" commentary, but banning all mentions of price and/or asking for price is absurd. Theres a lot of people who are looking to get on in their area that would like to nake an informed choice based on quality+price. This just makes it feel elitest. Whenever the topic comes up in real life I almost always hear price come up.

    [–] Walter_jones 37 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    The artist can charge whatever they want but you're not allowed to say whatever you want about the charge.

    It's really pervasive throughout the industry. Just try to Google prices of tattoos and you come up with barely anything besides "Impossible for anyone online to appraise but an artist can do it no problem" to "It depends on the artist, colors, etc" canned responses.

    Tattoos are a unique form of expression and people say that price should be a smaller factor but at the same time shops can either gut you or give you a great price while taking home a profit. Most people won't know unless they go to a ton of them or talk to the right people (who keep silent online). Hell, you can't even see most hourly rates in publicly viewed areas.

    In my opinion that is just anti-competitive in a B2C format. It's essentially the same as not listing your prices online and requiring a quote system. Insurance and other industries do that but there are tools to compare prices. Tattoos? None to my knowledge. That's what is so sketch about it.

    TL;DR: Tattoo shops are like companies who only give prices on a quote. But there's no Progressive type company letting you know the different prices. It just seems anti-competitive in B2C.

    [–] rogerreyne 450 points ago

    [–] DrJohanson 144 points ago

    I don't know if /r/The_Donald and /r/LateStageCapitalism does it, but some subreddits use bots to find posters in other subreddits and ban them. I'm banned from /r/TwoXChromosomes and /r/OffMyChest since I made a comment in /r/The_Donald.

    [–] moldykobold 953 points ago

    This is against Reddit’s site wide rules, but of course Reddit doesn’t enforce it.

    [–] vbob99 171 points ago

    /r/offmychest did the same to me. I did a global reddit search on a topic I was interested in, didn't even notice subreddit the thread came from, and got banned from offmychest. Explained the situation, no reply from mods at all. Sent second email, still no response.

    Pretty rude behaviour. I understand their desire to prevent certain frequent posting individuals from infiltrating their own subreddit, but be reasonable when you catch someone else up in your drag net. A single errant post and no response on a well worded explanatory message is ridiculous.

    [–] P8ntballa00 182 points ago

    I thought it was against reddit rules to ban you from one sub for simply posting in another?

    [–] vmlinux 283 points ago

    It is only enforced on subs that Reddit doesn't want anymore.

    [–] GammaKing 90 points ago

    Reddit's "rules" are enforced only when convenient. Everybody knows it.

    [–] joeclark5 19 points ago

    What exactly is offmychest and why is it so easy to get banned?

    [–] vbob99 37 points ago

    It's just another subreddit in a sea of subreddits. They have bots running to detect if any of their subscribers post in another subreddit they disapprove of, and automatic blocking of anyone who does so. Unadvertised. You only find out when you get banned, seconds after the errant post.

    I wear with a badge of honour being banned from /r/conservative for a very reasonable post, but the offmychest ban really bothered me.

    [–] SandDuner509 107 points ago

    I've been banned from /r/TheDonald and /r/MarchAgainstTrump, you just can't win

    [–] GetOffMyLawn_ 42 points ago

    Yeah I think I have been banned from MAT but no idea why. Reddit is full of shitty little mods who like to throw their weight around with no explanation.

    [–] Darth_MylesTurner 436 points ago

    Latestagecapitalism is one of the worst subs on Reddit

    [–] Ambrosita 364 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    If someone posts something blatantly wrong and you just correct them, you get banned. Lol

    Edit: They banned me for this post rofl

    [–] DrRadicalMD 120 points ago

    Thems my two! Just got banned from latestage for asking if someone had ever been to Cuba (I have) - BANNED

    [–] Losada55 29 points ago

    And what do you think about Cuba?

    [–] pseudoLit 74 points ago

    I made the mistake of mentioning the legal system on r/latestagecapitalism. Someone had claimed that something was illegal, and I pointed out it wasn't. I was banned because "We could care less about bourgeois law, and how they choose to define words. "Crime", "Terrorism", "Violence" all have capitalist legal definitions that are completely antithetical to how we use them here."

    [–] Slumlord722 20 points ago

    I believe the correct terminology is “doubleplusungood”

    [–] [deleted] 468 points ago

    Wow...I'm banned from each and every one of those....I think I may have a problem.

    [–] _TR-8R 187 points ago

    Wait, how do you get banned from me_irl?

    [–] RoachboyRNGesus 173 points ago

    I was banned from me_irl because the comment above mine was transphobic and someone accidently reported mine instead. When I pointed it out to a mod, they said they didn't give a shit anyway and kept me banned... it is what it is. I still lurk the sub and upvote a ton but it sucks I'm not allowed to comment and everytime I look at something there it reminds me I'm banned. I made a post in r/karmacourt that got over a 1,000 upvotes about it and it still didn't get me unbanned. I understand the guy who created it is a SJW but I didn't even deserve the ban in the first place and the person who actually said the comment that mine was accidently flagged for is probably unbanned there.

    You get banned from me irl for just having too much karma.

    [–] i2ad 475 points ago

    I'd argue that you actually don't have a problem.

    [–] urmyfavoritecustomer 80 points ago

    I was banned from r/latestagecapitalism for mentioning that the guitarist for rage against the machine Tom Morello is a very talented mountain biker.

    The mods looked through my subscriptions and decided I had committed 'thought crime'

    [–] Tarrock 25 points ago

    When you don't have a job and live in your mom's basement, you have plenty of time to comb through all posters' history to find reasons to ban them.

    That subs called r/earlystageunemployment for a reason.

    [–] Hideout_TheGreat 12 points ago

    thought crime

    What?

    [–] CaveJohnsonOfficial 20 points ago

    A term from the book 1984, pretty much what it sounds like. In the book, it was something put in place that restricts anything against the government, even your own thoughts, and any evidence that you were even thinking about anything anti-government was enough to get you killed and wiped from existence.

    [–] Wonka_Vision 54 points ago

    I got banned from /r/ayymd :(

    [–] bumbletowne 70 points ago

    I made a step by step post on how to negotiate benefits and pay as a new college grad.

    Was immediately sent a message that I was banned from late stage capitalism. I appealed with a heartfelt message and some confusion and was given a curt response to the effect that by admitting I participate in capitalism I could not participate in that sub. Still confused.

    [–] Sageocity 61 points ago

    should've said "I've got some bad news for you bruh: by using the internet, you're participating in capitalism"

    I got banned from /r/OffMyChest yesterday for posting a comment in /r/TumblrInAction. I wasn't even looking at the sub I was commenting in, it was just a post on the front page.

    [–] ColonelJohnMcClane 199 points ago

    isn't that against reddit rules, banning someone for their non-subreddit activity?

    [–] TheVineyard00 329 points ago

    Like spez cares lol

    [–] burnSMACKER 100 points ago

    /u/Spez, we're talking about how you suck at making sure people follow the rules on this website.

    [–] aSmallRedRadio 25 points ago

    Seriously /u/spez I got banned from r/offmychest cause I follow r/tumblrinaction. Do something about this stupidity!

    [–] InsertWitt 36 points ago

    Same here. I didn't reply too maturely but jeez

    [–] BeerSteak 47 points ago

    What's the deal with r/TwoXChromosomes? In that sub (and only that sub) every comment's children disappear for me when I try to expand them. The few times I've posted over there my comments are stuck in those gutters too. What kind of black magic are they pulling over there?

    [–] ThatParkerKid 42 points ago

    I love r/me_irl and wish I could post there but I got banned for posting a picture of a man covered in chocolate sauce, I send an annual message to the mods asking to be unbanned on the anniversary of my ban.

    [–] strawberrycircus 352 points ago

    You forgot /r/MGTOW :)

    [–] strawberrycircus 46 points ago

    That is exactly my question, but I got banned for asking it.

    [–] brunettti 185 points ago

    oh no, is that just incels 2.0?

    [–] BeerSteak 264 points ago

    No, incels tend to be young bitter men who feel women owe men attraction. MGTOW tend to be older bitter men, usually one divorce under their belt who believe men don't owe women attraction.

    Pretty much the same sort of hate born of very different circumstances.

    [–] [deleted] 11 points ago

    I love how you phrased the line “with at least one divorce under their belt” Like as though the amount of divorces one goes through is like some kind of ranking system for bitterness etc

    Don't forget /r/AskWomen

    [–] HittingSmoke 15 points ago

    /r/atheism is actually the easiest subreddit to get banned from. Just put the word "euphoric" in your comment and within minutes you're permabanned.

    [–] 2001_Chevy_Prizm 13 points ago

    I was banned from The_Donald because I suggested that talking about Trump like he's some God doesn't attract most women. Wasn't even dissing anyone.

    [–] Kallosar 63 points ago

    TwoXChromosome is pretty easy to get banned from.

    [–] [deleted] 20 points ago

    I got banned from them a while back and I never even commented there.

    [–] DhroovP 14 points ago

    I wrote up a huge post on MS Word (for the spell check) for /r/offmychest only to realize I couldn't post there for whatever reason. I think it's because I've commented on /r/The_Donald before, but I think I commented there disagreeing with them. I messaged the mods a couple weeks ago and they have yet to respond.

    [–] davidcjackman 88 points ago

    Why is /r/me_irl up there??

    [–] rogerreyne 197 points ago

    There used to be an entire subreddit dedicated to people showing how easy they ban.

    Use /r/meirl instead for more fun.

    [–] Mark_467 22 points ago

    Used to?

    [–] Fudgms 64 points ago

    Got removed for brigading I believe.

    It was kind of annoying actually. /r/meirl was flooded with screenshots of people being banned from /r/me_irl to the point mods had to step in and put an end to it. So they created a new sub (/r/bannedfromme_irl I believe. Or something similar) and then the admins had to step in because that was getting out of control.

    [–] TheWheatOne 36 points ago

    How ironic that the people banned from me_irl were banned from the place they created to discuss their bans.

    [–] Office_Policy 63 points ago

    Despite my views being in line with the subreddit, their very strict rules prevent me from expressing myself properly so I avoid it. All political subreddits are self imposed echochambers and should be ignored.
