I asked on "r/askwomen" about the sound of male voices that they find attractive. Apparently that is a taboo question in reddit, as it was taken down in less than an hour. Of course, I couldn't post this rant on r/offmychest because something equally innocuous I posted there weeks ago resulted in my permanent ban.
The truth is, reddit is nothing more that a bunch of censure crazy nazis when they decide to be. But apparently they cannot decide where to draw the line. I see every day questions 10x worse than what I've ever mentioned and yet get a full pass. wtf? They're as bad as the stack exchange geek nazis. Where the fuck can I ask a question about anything without being banned????? The Fuckernet long ago transitioned from the freedom of thought platform to the locked-down, head-in-the-sand echo silos that have defined our present day online life.
I am 60. In the 80s I was in IT and trying my hardest to convince everyone in the university I worked at that online was going to open the world to shared ideals. God Damn. Was I ever wrong. W-R-O-N-G.
Now it is just a bunch of propaganda from all sides who refuse to listen to each other, and continue to hate each other more each ensuing day, with an occasional funny cat video tossed in for so-called humor.
When I was a kid in the '60s I had many questions, but no idea who to ask for answers.
When I was a young man in the '90s I thought everything was moving in the right direction and openness was a mere few years away.
When I turned 60 I realized I still have no idea who to ask for answers. I've been spanked by Nazi-net a-holes more in the last 2 months than my parents ever spanked me in my entire childhood. I haven't asked anything different on the internet than I have when I was a child.
