I do believe Reddit is insanely hypocritical for pulling the plug on the sub but I can also understand, to a degree, of trying to maintain an image and keep up appearances.
Before the quarantine, WPD seemed to attract a specific type of person. People who were curious about what death actually looked like. People who could appreciate they were watching people die while also still making some funny ass jokes and insightful, thoughtful commentary.
After WPD was quarantined, it seemd like every asshole came out of the woodwork and started spewing off their radicalized political/ideological opinions in the sub. Personally, I wasn't a fan of politics bleeding into the sub. Regardless of your political affiliation or personal religious beliefs, I think this sub should be the great equalizer for that all shit.
/u/tejmar and the other admins did a good job keeping all that crazy shit in check before the untimely demise of the sub. I'm just hoping we can keep that same level of respect here like we did before.
Maybe I'm just paranoid after having to go to these gore sites directly and seeing more crazy shit in the comments than in the content.
