He's on vacation, subego. He got too stressed out by all of the voter fraud that he wanted a few days for himself.
I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it.

Or maybe he masterminded it and hasn't finished walking home yet.
I have plenty of more important things to do, if only I could bring myself to do them....

Trump originally suggested he was the size of a “burnt 12 oz. filet with ketchup”, but that wouldn’t fit on the sign (sad), so he went with “big ham burger” instead.

Between that and putting ads between posts and comments (was that new this week?), I'm about ready to ditch Reddit on my phone.

I turned notifications off to see what happens.

The ads as a first comment just started. It really annoys me, but I’m getting used to it.

I actually bailed on Reddit about a month before the election for becoming just an insufferable circlejerk, but r/chicago is pretty much my only source for local news, so I came crawling back.

I unsub'd r/politics and most of the national/world news subreddits a long time ago. But with how poorly Iowa is handling covid, r/Iowa and r/DesMoines is pretty much 100% people going hard on the governor and senators.

I just remembered AnnArchist is the top mod for r/iowa.

From the outside looking in, I have to be honest and say I find that hilarious.

Yeah some big drama went down a couple weeks ago, one of the only other active mods quit after AnnArchist kept unbanning trolls.

He’s the top mod of (the now private) r/drama, where as a gag once he started turning randos into mods. The rest of the mods tried to mutiny, and so Ann demodded everyone. Every. One.

Reddit admin ended up involved and restored everybody, but the lead mutineer never got any permissions back (until they were let in at the bottom under a new account).

Good times.

I’m trying to think of what other Reddit gossip I have.

Gallowboob is annoying.

Reddit has been a letdown in recent years. Mobile site/app are dumpster fires.

I actually think the mobile app is pretty decent, at least on my phone. On my iPad I use the desktop website, though I stopped using my iPad for Reddit once r/drama went private.

What’s your beef?

I generally like the Reddit app, but the experience isn’t quite as frictionless as the website is. For what it does, the Reddit site really is pretty direct and keeps out of its own way. Unlike, say, Facebook, who took the horrible user experience of the website, and somehow made it even worse in the app.

New version of the Reddit app has “live updating” vote and comment numbers. Christ... make it stop.

(Reducing reward animation switch seems to do the trick)

My beef with app/mobile site:
- No flair support
- PMs very hard to send
- Constant nags to use chat, get gold, etc.

Well, it supports text flair at least.

They definitely need to stop trying to make chat happen. Chat’s not going to happen.

I foresee Reddit chat becoming nothing but a steady stream of spam for OnlyFans channels.

I forget what site I was on yesterday, but I went to read something, and the layout was paragraph-ad-paragraph-ad-paragraph-ad-paragraph... Effing maddening.

Better than the 1 paragraph/photo per page, load page with ads Buzzfeed model.

I already had that option turned on and started to get those animations. Lately my front page after a refresh seems to be:
- Post
- Ad
- Check out these communities
- Check out this related content
- Ad
- 2nd post
