    There are over 3k subreddits, it would be illogical to attempt to constantly monitor all of them. When the subreddits got called out by other Reddit users they were removed.

    Thank god the guy that lied about having a disabled brother and not having any money for Christmas was not a Redditer.

    But yeah, I personally found this heart warming. However, this guy is probably going to feel guilty as hell about using the money. He specifically said that's not what he wanted, he just wanted to answer questions. Now he'll feel like he has to use it.

    Most of you hate on Reddit because on the main sections (which are quite bad most of the time). There's thousands of other much better sub-reddits.

    You can sum up a good portion of Reddit users with that word. Not saying most Facepunchers are any smarter, but at least we don't feel this strange compulsion to offer out life savings to a guy with cancer for no real reason.

    I wouldn't be too against this is he genuinely needed treatments to fulfil some last things in his life, but this is just them literally giving him free money because they "feel sorry" for him. Cool, you're nice guys who give money to people. How about you give some money to someone who needs it to live, and not just because they have cancer?
    While they're at it, they should take all the food from middle-class people and give it to the poor, cause hey, fuck those middle class assholes, right? It's not like they need to eat or anything.

       You're an asshole, btw.

    This is the shit that makes me hate reddit. They'll dump boatloads of money on some dying asshole to go blow it on drugs and hookers in a foreign country after a week, then go have upvote circlejerks about how they're the nicest community and get on a dozen news websites. All while downvoting any comments that say donating to him is probably a bad idea to hell so nobody can read any comments except for the ones they are statistically likely to agree with. All while the local attention whores get upvotes (attention) by publicly offering to fuck the dying guy - fawned-over nude pictures of themselves included. All while the dying guy makes sure to mention he'll take pictures of them having sex in order to whore both of them. The upvotes just don't stop!

    Also: To anybody thinking this will "eventually be exposed as a scam" ... go fall in a fire.
    And the guy has the fucking nerve to tell people who trying to be reasonably cautious to go kill themselves and die too. And they're giving him money. Yeah, this dying dick is the guy I want to give my money to for no goddamned reason. I don't want to donate $20,000 to research that could save the lives of cancer patients. I don't want to donate $20,000 to support people who aren't dying and actually have a chance with their lives and just need money, maybe homeless people or something. Those people aren't making threads on reddit; I can't upvote them and get upvoted if I give money to them! I'll have to give it to this asshole redditfag who won't live long enough to spend it wisely to use it all as fast as he can so I can feel popular on a bad circlejerk of praise and agreeing-opinions called reddit.

    I fucking hate the internet.

    Unfortunately, cancer is really frequent today because of addictive habits people get into. Even sitting your arse 10h a day can get you that shit.

    This is literally the only thread where I've seen most of the thread defend Reddit. Also Reddit is vastly more popular than Facepunch so of course there's going to be people like you on there; it's basic math.

    Will do. You're right, man. I'm off to get garry to delete my account right after this post. Your clearly victorious logic has torn apart my previous argument and opinion. I'm sorry. This is probably the last post I'll ever make. You win.

    Guy posts cancer story on 4chan, community replies 'Kill yourself ' 'Kill yourself' 'You should probably kill yourself' within minutes.
    Have you ever browsed 4chan before? I go on /v/, and it's the exact opposite. Look at this thread, bro. Dying guy says his goodbyes to his best friends at 4chan. They pat him on the back and gift him a few Steam games to enjoy in his final weeks. I remember there was a follow-up thread made by a guy who stayed in contact with him when he finally left for the hospice. There's also couple other similar archived cancer threads I wasn't there for at the time.

    I just interpreted it as a bunch of people trying to be decent human beings by doing what they can to make this guy's last few months alive a pleasant experience. If you think all those people are seriously trading cash or sex for upvotes, you're deluded. Sometimes people just want to be generous.

    And now you're defending 4chan for doing a similar thing to what Reddit is doing. Am I missing something here?

    I want to believe that, but it doesn't look like that to me. I won't repeat what I just posted though, and, of course, you're entitled to your opinion otherwise.

    No, I'm not "defending 4chan" or anything. Read my original post and note the reasons I gave for disliking the reddit thread. Nobody in the thread I linked on 4chan was giving mass donations to bad causes or exploiting a dying man to garner attention. I just mentioned the 4chan thread because it was the exact opposite of what the guy said. Figured I could contribute to the thread by providing it.

    This explains "why you should hate reddit" very well.

    Also because the upvote/downvote system that is the foundation for reddit encourages metaphorical "circlejerking", attention whoring, and lets you only see popular opinions you agree with, and not see opinions you don't agree with. Like a big bubble of only shit-you-agree-with where you can only talk to people you agree with. Everybody just takes about how much they agree with each other and becomes more deluded into their own opinions, never even knowing opposing opinions exist. And if they do see unpopular opinions hidden at the bottom of the page, they won't even consider them to be true due to the downvotes plastered all over them. Additionally, the system encourages users to see how can brownnose the most. To get your posts seen and to make your account popular (thus making your arguments carry more "worth"), you need to get as many people to agree with you as strongly as you can. This turns everything into a competition to see who can metaphorically suck the metaphoric dick of the topic creator or subject just so their post can be seen and they can get any attention at all. (And because nobody will actually scroll down to the bottom of five hundred comments and click "show hidden posts", they only see the comments most extremely expressing the popular opinion. As I said, this gives them a skewed perspective of reality.) As an example, developers like to go to reddit to talk about their games because they get the most positive feedback there. And, not seeing any actual criticism since it's downvoted and hidden, it gives them a bad idea of what their community is actually like and wants, and I've seen still-developing games, like Minecraft and Ace of Spades, go down the shitter because of it.

    wow i didn't realized i typed so much i should probably see someone this seems unhealthy to hate reddit this much

    Which again is a couple of sections. It's not like you browse the gaming section and a discussion about child pornography breaks out.

    Really, there's loads of good sub-reddits, but some ignorant people only look at the bad ones and go "REDDIT IS TERRIBLE!".

    dude they were some of the largest subreddits and the admins still didn't do shit until they made headlines

    stop grasping at straws to defend your creepy community

    even if they did get rid of most of the illegal shit, there's still /r/mensrights, /r/atheism, /r/mlp, etc.

    $20.000 because of a post on reddit is pretty incredible.
    If you don't want to be misinterpreted, just use a space instead or just don't put anything there

    $20 000
    $20000

    Or just use a comma like people from non-convoluted places do

    $20,000

    "." is a decimal point gosh darnit
