A two day old discussion thread in r/ainbow suddenly attracts a considerable amount of votes ... Jess_Than_Three denies that a downvote army has been summoned, when the votes are in her favour (self.SubredditDramaDrama)

{SubredditDramaDrama}

7 ups - 13 downs = 0 votes

This is related to SubredditDrama because Jess is always complaining that SRD invade r/ainbow and skew the voting.

So, a couple of days ago there was a discussion about the possibility of creating babies by manipulating the gametes of same-sex parents ... it wasn't a very busy discussion and was soon abandoned.

But there was one thread where a few people, including Jess, started being silly after I indicated that I might have some concerns about genetically engineering babies ... now, I know this is an unpopular opinion in reddit, but hours later, the sudden wave of downvotes for me, and upvotes for their silliness, made it look as if a fresh wave of readers had been summoned from somewhere ... the sudden additional comments from a few of her SRDBroke buddies made it look even more suspicious ... I went to check and there was no submission in the SRDBroke subreddit, but they do also have a chat room where they can call upon their downvote army.

Jess denied it.

Moonflower, no one cares about your stupid posts to SRDD, or TPS, just use r/drama to brigade like all of the cool people do.

Also, sanity is not mandatory, so go wild.

> Moonflower, no one cares

You needn't type the rest of that stuff. Just ctrl-C ctrl-V this fifty times. That's all that needs to be said.

Well your "own reasons" don't change the fact that this post is not appropriate for this subreddit.

You can post this in the graveyard that is TPS, the gossipy bitchfest that is /r/drama or hell, even SRD - that'd be cute.

The mods will remove it if they think it doesn't belong here, I don't think it is appropriate for r/drama or TPS

Thank you but I don't think this counts as general drama, it's only relevant to an ongoing SRD drama, I posted it here for reference next time Jess is complaining about SRD being a downvote brigade and messing up r/ainbow

you realize that it's not only Jess that notices it, right? You seem to have some sort of personal vendetta against her that I can't quite figure out.

Rest assured, while Jess is the most vocal about it, we all see it happening, and we all don't like it.

jess is your (only? don't know tbh) trans* moderator, and she's particularly a trans* moderator who doesn't put up with moonflower's shit.

are you really surprised the transphobe has a vendetta?

no... i mean, i guess not. I actually chalked it up to jess being the only ladymod... as moonflower seems to not try to pick fights with the rest of us. I dunno. It's disappointing either way.

Yeah, she's the only trans* mod for right now.

Oh yeah, it must be because she is trans, it must be because I'm transphobic, it can't be because she is a nasty bully

Yes you're right, I do have a personal grudge against Jess, and I doubt if you would ever understand why

That's fine. I don't really care too much if you do. It's also fine if you post about it here, but keep it out of ainbow. Your personal issues with other redditors don't belong there.

What do you mean when you say ''keep it out of ainbow''? are you telling me that I have no right to defend myself when being attacked in ainbow? I was one of the few people who was actually trying to have a serious dicussion, and the mods don't seem to have any problem with all the silliness, or the bullying which Jess instigated ... quite the opposite, joey was actually encouraging it ... mods of ainbow turning out to be a bunch of bullies

/r/drama accepts gossip and rumours if they are well researched and thought out.

sorry moonflower, I disagree. I can sort of see where you are coming from by posting it to SRDD, but I still would not classify this as SRD drama because although SRD is mentioned, it is not in /r/subredditdrama. Different kind of meta. I think you may be doing a bit of mental gymnastics right now.

Nothing I ever say in reddit is considered to be ''well researched and thought out'' ... I'm not really welcome to post my grievances anywhere

What's the common denominator there, do you think? Is there perhaps a pattern you could learn from?

If you are asking if I know how to be popular in reddit, yeah sure I do, I could say all the popular things and keep my unpopular opinions to myself ... yeah, sure I could crush my soul for worthless internet popularity, but it's not what I'm here for

Hun, everything is appropriate for /r/drama. The faster you learn that the faster you can callz-2-urmz us all to downvote all of your totes evil enimays on the tubez.

I wasn't trying to do that though, it would ruin the evidence if people voted

Honiepie, you're only -2 in that thread.

Are you losing your shit, or what?

Edit: oh em gee, I noticed another one of your comments is at -5 - I totally legitimately honestly truthfully willingly (with open arms) with all of the warm understanding fuzzies in the world have no clue why you are losing your mind over this.

It depends which comments you are looking at ... some of mine are at about -7 while Jess's bullying is up to about +13 in places

I think you're going to need a thread about this thread, because it would seem that all of your comments are being brigaded and DOWNVOTED by another one of Jess's brigades! oh my.

WHY JESS WHY?

I don't know why you are concluding that I am insane just because I make a post about how a little downvote army swept through a thread, voting in favour of someone who regularly complains about SRD being a downvote army

Huh. Maybe other people enjoy humor, and think your OMG-serious-business freakout is ridiculous?
