Mostly venting, but I guess updating on the current status of how bad reddit is:
I got this message from admins:

I already deleted the comment, so I don't recall it exactly, but there was no threat in it whatsoever. It was a response to someone suggesting if there were no guns at all, you wouldn't have to worry about self defense. I replied back (calling it euro cuck logic and other vulgarities) stating there are plenty of situations in which you should shoot someone, even if they don't have a gun themselves. For eg (this part wasn't in the comment) someone has a knife or other weapon or they're just bigger than you.
A 100% sane, normal, stance on a subject gets an admin warning for "threatening violence".
This was in /r/news of course.
