devtesla netowrk info ▶

greetings femperal scorntroopers:

yuor beloved fempire is now in the paws of me, devtesla!

actually this isn't a new thing, a few months ago all archangelle and SRS mod accounts were transferred over to me, devtesla, and I have been secretly operating them ever since. you may have thought that your terrible posts were being fished out of the spam filter the same old angelleic hands, but no! it was me! hahahahahahah!

but now after months of pepperation, I am ready to go public with the new direction for srs! as mindless members of a diabolic anti-reddit cult, I am sure that you will submit to my authority now that I have declared its existence.

starting immidately:

  • all cats

  • pROPPER CAPITILIZATION IS FORBIDIN

  • May 13th is Piccolo Day

tomorrow:

  • I will post the entirety of the srs trans elite's shitlist

  • you will be slightly gassy

soon:

  • all text will be comic sans

  • sidebar will be retitled and subs replaced with better, devtesla network alternatives. r srsgaming will be replaced by r killallgames. r srsimages will be replaced by r shibe. r srsmeta replaced by r devtesla. r srsgsm will be replaced by r meirl. r srsdiscussion will be replaced by r justpost.

  • text posts must be posted as images

  • you will become dag

as you can see, all of these are positive changes. this is the beginning of a bright new day for SRS: as an indistinguable part of the Devtesla Network

Good without GAS – or why this whole experiment to 'improve' /r/shitredditsays is so controversial to many members.


Because the very definition of the members of the sub is that we don't fart.

The Mods believe we have a responsibility to our 'movement', that we should be pleasant and nice, not piss off other members of Reddit, that we have the similar philosophies and are a unified group who wish to influence the wider world.

They believe Reddit is important. Significant. And something more then just another internet forum.

They believe that Reddit is broken – that shitty posts are unfairly weighted in the voting algorithms (because it's easy to read and understand them). They believe they have now 'fixed' this problem in this Reddit sub.

They believe they are better suited to decide what is /r/shitredditsays content then general members using the voting buttons.

They believe quotes of bigoted content is too easy to navigate and leads to 'Karma Hoarders' and they believe everyone making effort posts is only not collecting Reddit karma and probably doesn't believe whatever is in the shit mine.

They believe anyone who up-votes a shit post is probably a teenager or of sub-par empathy (they believe teenagers are less considerate users).

They believe only a small number of 20 to 50 vocal dissenters are annoyed by the changes, despite over 5000 having moved to new feminist subs in only one week.

They believe the vote thread was a failure because it was biased because only those who wanted to revert bothered to vote. (A philosophy many losing politicians would love to get away with.)

They believe non-feminist (possibly feminist hostile) mods will be able to step into mod roles on the sub and have no problems.

They (and those who agree with them) believe they can win with strawman attacks (we can't believe you want this sub to be full of memes), ad hominen attacks (you're just teenagers and karma hoarders wanting 'may-mays'), false dilemma fallacies (either you accept these changes or it will become unsustainable), appeals to authority (the admins set up the rules of Reddit, it's not us), appeals to fear (this sub was out of control and in danger of the admins shutting it down), appeals to the masses (everyone thinks this sub is terrible), Achilles heal arguments (well most sub users agree they got fed up of re-posts so of course ALL these changes are justified), shifting the onus of proof (you have no evidence all 2,000,000 users were unhappy with the change and until you do you cannot say that is an unpopular move) and of course red herrings (/r/shitredditsayspolicy ).

I'm personally surprised the tactics of the shitlords are being used on this sub, by both sides of this argument, and we have to move past it if we're to recover from this schism. The problem is (and one I just realized myself) we're pretty invested in the place, we're passionate about it and it's hard not to resort to the tactics of passion and belief. If nothing else we should all have greater insight into the shitty and their response to the challenging of their beliefs.

I have no right to suggest what happens next, but it's probably time we approached this with the tools of feminism: LOGIC and REASON, and it's time for the mods to listen with those same tools. The mods need to make arguments for each of the changes that have been made, the arguments need to be real – not using LOGICal fallacies. Any arguments that are raised against the changes need to be addressed by the mods using LOGIC and REASON, banning dissenters and censoring disagreement has to stop.

If for any REASON this cannot be done then this sub is no longer a safe place for LOGIC, REASON and lack of belief and 'rebooted' is the correct route for us to go.

TL:DR – stop with the tactics of shitlords, lets use the LOGIC and REASON feminism is famous for if this argument is going to continue.

What the fuck did you just fucking say about my slight gas, you little beard? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Mangry Brigade, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on The Fempire, and I have over 300 confirmed doxxes. I am trained in Innurnetz warfare and I’m the top manger in the entire Femirial Forces. You are nothing to me but just another brd. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this sub, mark my fucking brds. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over teh Reddits? Think again. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across SomethingAwful and your hashtag is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, shill. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your karma. You’re fucking downvoted, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, because I have no life and I can brigade you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my whiny brohurt. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed shitthatneverhappened.txt, but I have access to the entire arsenal of teh Googles and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the thing I just made up, you little person who is better than me. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have checked yourself before you wrecked yourself. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn atheist. I will shit Nicky Fury all over you and you will drown panties in it.

You’re fucking win, kiddo.

So I've recently noticed that a couple of the archangelles are my most upvoted users on Reddit RES, with Devtesla close behind. I'm pretty sure all this has pushed devtesla to the lead. Hostile takeover complete.

Also completely random tangent, this is probably not the place, but I just read Neil Gaiman's American Gods, and while doing so I pictured SRS single-handedly creating gods out of Tia and Tamera, and adding to Lady Gagas strength. In fact, I think I'll re-imagine the entire novel with regards to SRS memes dictating American society, and get many lulz doing so to pass the time at work.
