I got banned from a subreddit because the BBC changed the article title. There are just too many rules and too many bad rules.

    I never understood banning someone for one offense. No one wastes their time reading every rule on every sub before posting. And because reddit only actively promotes big subs it is really hard to create an alternative sub with better rules.

      On the one hand, modding is a thankless job cleaning up unending shit. I can’t blame mods who take shortcuts, or jump to conclusions, or create inviolable rules.

      On the other hand, it’s a volunteer position. If you don’t want to do it right, why do it at all?

      I’ve been banned for so many incredibly stupid things, and many I don’t even know why I was banned.

        some people are very eager to apply the rules when possible

        I got banned from c/Tumblr (on Lemmy.world I think) for making a joke about how Tumblr screenshots always include a stupid reply that never adds to the joke. First offense, no warning. By the powermod who has since gone on hiatus
