Why does 4chan hates reddit so much? Sure 99% of the site is garbage but there's some good stuff in there once in a while (just like 4chan come to think of it). You can't even mention reddit without 5 posters telling you to "go back", it's really annoying.
For the record I've been on 4chan since 2009 and only really started browsing reddit about 3 years ago, and don't even have an account. But I'm of the opinion you should enjoy good content no matter where it comes from. If some gay SJW with pink hair cured cancer, I would be thankful for it even if he's a retard.
What is wizchan's optinion of reddit?

Most of the posters there are annoying smartass normalfags, if you post anything that goes against the 'hivemind' you will get a smug reply from some asshole and be downvoted to oblivion. Sure, it's nice when you're searching google and you find some helpful posts on a reddit thread, but if you actually post and/or browse there it is fucking awful. The most normalfag clickbait stupid shit that appeals to succubi or the most recent meme gets voted to the top of any sub, and then everything else is mostly just ignored, maybe you'll get a reply or two, but that's it.

there's some obscure shit that you can only find there though. Like r/georgism where people discuss land value taxes, where the fuck would I find something like that on another forum/site? Sure Georgism sometimes pop up on /biz/ once in a while when they're discussing landlords, but I go to the reddit sub about twice a week to find new info on this niche subject.

Reddit is a receptacle for popular opinions and tripe. There's no reason to be there unless you're too lazy to find something out on your own(eg read a book) or you're a raging norman. Even its supposed benefit of highly specialized discussion boards become circlejerks where any person who questions the narrative of a given board is downvoted or outright banned. No-one really goes there to learn anyway, just to reinforce their pre-conceived notions.

I don't post but I follow reddit since 2011. I personally don't understand reddit=left, 4chinz=right that much. Yes there are some places where mods are absolute leftists but right also dominate some peculiar places. Especially after many "right wing" subs banned, many of the said mods started to infiltrate neutral/left oriented places and made their way into the mod team.
Mod organization is not democratic at all. If you have just one guy inside you can more or less start to make all the people that think alike mods and began to dominate the sub.
A great example is /r/europe where right wing mods who come from banned right wing subreddits (And I don't mean conservatives, I mean people with stormfront accounts, neo-nazis etc) absolutely dominate. Any post that indicate some mods history on stormfront or how they sperged against jews and homosexuals is deleted immediately, the meta discussions locked with a "no one is a nazi here" post(they got smarter). The only remnants I manage do find were from a subreddit that collected mods activity circa 2016-2017. And 5 years has passes since then.

I found out, It really takes few guys to influence internet. Many "forced" memes are only forced by one or two individuals. It really makes you think.

It's very bad but it's less heavily censored than wizchan at least. There are no good options anymore, the internet has fallen rapidly. Most quality discussion has moved to private areas like closed groups on 'instant messaging' platforms like telegram and discord, which obviously has its own problems with cliques and accessibility

It's 99% shit and has some occasionally alright stuff if you look hard enough - Just like literally every other website on the internet.

I have the exact same opinion of twitter, and 4chan, this place and every other imageboard. Reddit isn't uniquely shit, social media on the whole is shit.

 No.182346

One feature I like with reddit is that if a post gets too many replies or something, I don't really know how it works, it'll split off into a new thread, it's a really nice passive way to deal with off-topic posts, whereas on chans it's easy for some retard to create some very tangentially related post and derail the entire thread

 No.182348

I hate reddit. For one it's unbrowseable. The layout is a mix of Tumblr and Myspace but looks like a WordPress page. Discussions are impossible to have because no one wants to scroll through a bunch of deleted and removed user replies. All you are left with is the top 2 and 3 comments. Even smaller reddits fall to the overall hivemind of Reddit and follow the same commenting format. Your opinion will simply drown by someone trying to get upvotes. This system makes it so the "best" Reddit posts are just regurgitating what the MSM and Jews want to hear.

I'm on left but I much prefer 3rd positionists than many liberals or good old fox news watching boomer cosnervatives. That is not the point. And for the record I am totally against banning extreme left/right wing dialogue in anywhere.
What gets me is the mods slimey attitude.
Its just that I much prefer people who openly admit they are communists, neo nazis etc. Latestagecapitalism for example is unapologetically right wing, and many "banned" right wing subreddits were the same.

They hide what they truly believe, they spout all kinds of shit on their private channels but try to present themselves something they are not out to public. funny you said "kike" because this is exactly what you guys would call as "kikery". You know, happy merchant who wears a mask.

I used to very much enjoy the neet subreddit. I was a nice haven where everyone was black pilled and not being normal was accepted and welcomed. Eventually normies started flooding the subreddit, particularly when Covid hit which was the death bell: all these normies suddenly out of work started flooding to the neet subreddit, bringing their normie ideals with them. The original neets were downvoted for suggesting things like antinatalism, or antiwork ideas. That was the death of it. Now it's just out of work normies and depressed normies.

no, it was always trash. There's succubi there and normalfags too wanting to feel special because they don't work or saw neet term used in some anime.

I had a pretty good screencap showcasing a lot of reddit problems.
Chains of [deleted] replies, people jumping on EVERY opportunity to reference something, and drive a joke into the ground, most subs end up an echochamber where everything starting from website's design is meant to push out opinions slightly differing from the norm.
It's a horrible site for actually discussing stuff, esepcially if you're not 100% positive all the time.

 No.182400

Early reddit used to about finding good outside content and bringing it all together in a constant stream of stuff you liked. Back then Reddit used to steal content from 4chan and post it, the same way 9gag and ebaumsworld did. Anons hated this and hated reddit for stealing their content and reposting it like it was their own. This is now irrelevant because both websites are downstream from twitter screencaps for some reason.

Reasons to hate modern reddit are infinite. It's extremely left wing and censorship happy. It's latest admin was a tranny pedophile with a father in prison for torturing a little succubus for sexual pleasure. The tranny put his father in positions of political power and in charge of LGBTFAGGOT children charities. When all this came out Reddit ran a mass censorship campaign on all of it and defended the child molesting freak until the userbase revolted so hard they… stayed on reddit and were fine with the website once he was fired.

Reddit is filled with fucked up leftist stalkers who post CP on any subreddit they don't like then immediately report it to get the sub closed down. These groups are often friends with the site admins, you get the idea.

Reddit is also full of bots and the upvote system is a myth. They can change upvotes at will and will promote paid for posts etc. When the system "does" work it doesn't work because it's naturally a race to the most autistic. One retard can dominate how a subreddit leans. If they upvote/downvote (on multiple accounts even) posts they will encourage or discourage people from posting. This results in people leaving as they get downvoted over and over, self radicializing the subreddit in the direction of the worst people there.

The key issue with reddit is that it's essentially the ultimate echo chamber. Say something you don't like, be prepared to have your overarching score counter at a permanent less than 0 restricting your access to a lot of subs. Say something people like and you'll be showered with positive numbers. Or just be female and do literally anything. There are countless examples of people posting art vs posting a succubus holding their art and the latter always gets multiple times more points. Subreddits like "unpopular opinion" have only opinions most of the site agree with but they're mildly controversial. I could go on but it goes way past "reddit bad lol". Genuinly an awful site filled with awful people

I haven't been on 4chan since like 2012 but from what I understand it's a pretty normalfag site just like reddit. Also, I think you answered your own question with:
>Sure 99% of the site is garbage but there's some good stuff in there once in a while
I think the voting system means only groupthink is visible. Because of it's popularity, it's also a horribly manipulative website in terms of the sneaky advertisers that and marketers on it. High profile posts can be bought with votes from bots. I haven't used the official site/app in many years but that's meant to be full of awful dark patterns also. (use teddit.net)

However, because of it's sheer size you will undoubtedly find good small groups on it. I really like r/roguelikes. The place is full of proper roguelike devs and the community doesn't allow posts of roguelites which is exactly what I want. I don't have an account but I can at least see decent posts about roguelikes.

I use it for documentary recommendations, but it's very difficult to have any stimulating discussion on it. You are actively punished for having an opinion that goes against the group, mods remove every second thread for random reasons, and it's too easy to get banned for expressing non-popular opinions.

It is awful, even with niche small sub-reddits. People who have more karma have their opinions valued more. Moderators.

True but 4chan is more private than wizchan if you want to post images or use meta - you cant buy a pass here, and there are not as many users, plus the size, embarrassing topic and suspiciousness of this site's unnecessary actions make it likely for your collated wizchan data to be used maliciously

There are only 4.3 billion IPv4s in the world, and at the rate 4chan is going, they are going to ban a large chunk of that.

It is harder to change your public IPV4 today than it was 10 years ago because many companies like AT&T have sticky IPs.

I personally think there should be a mass purge of their ban list. Just forgive that long list. 4Chan still has to get that ad revenue.

Reddit is designed so that posts people agree with will be put to the top and posts people disagree with are hidden.

To make it worse, in many subreddits you can't reply to everyone commenting on your post due to timers. It just means you're getting dogpiled and can't respond to it.

In summary it's basically everything wrong with the real world amplified. It takes away everything fun about the internet and makes it into a censored mess of groupthink. This wouldn't be as big of an issue if the subreddits worked as intended but there's kind of a metagame being played with activists shutting down even the most benign subs if they become aware of them.

A good example of this was the "Sword and Scale" podcast subreddit. Somehow some discord trannies got pissed off at the podcaster and became admins of the sub, deleted any post talking about the podcast genuinely, and just allowed posts saying the podcaster was shit, etc.

That in general is what is wrong with reddit.

I have now been using Reddit 3+ weeks because it’s the only remotely interesting website I can use on my work’s internet. And holy fucking shit, or really is just left wing 4chan. They use the same shitty wojak memes, they do the same slimy political bait, it’s the same goosestepping hivemind.

The only thing it really has going for it is the fun of seeing people’s post histories. My god there’s some really broken people on Reddit.

An imageboard where you cant post images is pretty unusable. if you care about privacy then this is how it is, because VPNs and proxies are now heavily restricted

Writing anything critical about wizchan is likely to get your comment deleted for 'complaining outside /meta/' while meta does not allow you to post if you have VPN or proxy.

Letting wizchan moderators trace where you live and sell all your data with linked posts is obviously dangerous and unacceptable

Reddit on the other hand lets you make a new account in 1 second, dont even need an email.

usernames, no anonymity, weird posting/commenting methods, private messaging, popular with non-techy people. in the early days imageboards weren't entirely populated with normalfags yet. it became something like a culture or a tradition to reject the 'new' internet which reddit represented and so you shit on reddit and call people redditors as an insult

nowadays???? im not sure. i havent kept up with 4chan in a long ass time. im guessing the culture of anti-reddit simply continues to exist, but in reality probably most of the people there use social media, reddit, are normalfags. they are just signalling to each other like a ritual now, the real purpose of it is gone

Reddit has been very interesting to me solely because it shows me firsthand the real, palpable dangers of and susceptibility of the average person to bandwagoning and appeals to the majority.

I also find it interesting how much more 'normal' it seems to me if I instead search by 'controversial.' It makes me wonder how much more different the dynamic out of Reddit would be if 'controversial' was the default ordering method.

 No.183596

controversial is the only way to really read the comments and find anything that is not insane. I had a funny one this week while browsing the /r/natureismetal sub. https://www.reddit.com/r/natureismetal/comments/apvwvl/red_crab_feasting_on_the_thousands_of_newly/ Someone got a high voted comment and then changed it to what appears to be an allusion to abortion as a troll and there are so many people reeeing at it. I tried to find the deleted comment but rereddit came up with nothing.

I suspect reddit has made it much harder for sites to collect comments when they are deleted because ceddit when it ran years ago never had that problem and would expose the mods manipulating the comments clearly.

> where the fuck would I find something like that on another forum/site?
The thing is…if it wasn't for reddit there would in fact be another site for this, many in fact. I used to post on dozens of different forums for different subjects when the internet was younger, they were healthy and active places. They are all dead now without exception.

Now the internet is extremely centralized now, and reddit is centralization incarnate, its model which is entirely based on quantity over quality has killed conventional forums all over instead insisting everyone participate in the same sterilized format to be scrutinized and data mined by a giant conglomerate and policed by its own members in a giant groupthink. There's a word for that, reddit is a digital panopticon. And there's no way to defeat it, in fact more sites are becoming more like reddit as a result because reddit itself occupies more and more real estate exporting more and more of its 'culture'. ​

People go where people go, that is they follow one another to the active place. We've reached a point where the main reason someone goes to reddit is because everyone goes there, despite the fact the actual act of participating is horrific. Ask yourself why you're on Wizchan instead of Reddit and you'll realize activity isn't everything

I made a stupid video about something which took forever and wanted to share it on the topics small subreddit, never posted anything on reddit before, so maybe that's why my post got filtered or something because it didn't show up, then I wrote the only mod on there a few days ago, but didn't get an answer.
Then I went to their discord and saw the mod posting there frequently over the last day.
I used to get really nervous even when posting something on image-boards, so getting ignored by the only mod on that subreddit and even join some discord-community I've never done before is crushing.
Now I don't even feel like posting my video anymore, so much technical progress has happened over the last decades I fear that I will soon feel out of loop like old people who can't turn on a computer with only 30.

I don't know besides the popularity-contest there, especially smaller subreddits feel like cliques (+discord), they get to decide if you are even allowed to post anything, which isn't much of a problem on image-boards.

You really hit something on the head there. In a sense, imageboards and a lot of forums are very meritocratic. We don't care who you are to be able to post (picrel). Reddit, discord, and other social media sites–well, they call it 'community building' but we all know it's rank and file nepotism.

Reddit is obviously very good for hobby communities and questions. I use an account just for questions and personal hobbies. It's also very good for hiveminds, getting validation on beliefs, justifying those beliefs via common arguments that are posted, and getting mental health by support. It can be a very good tool for a person. Still, it's not very good for news. Corporations or rich people can use bots to get stories or propaganda on the front page of Reddit. Politically, Reddit admins and users lean left, but there exists conservative subreddits that I don't go to. Those could get banned anyways. I don't really bother with politics.

I don't really like reddit's communities at all, most of them are really normative and moralistic in annoying ways. However, I think reddit is a decent site to search for information or certain images or pr0n, gets better results than most search engines. Usually I will search 4chan archives and reddit for information about subjects rather than google. It's a good archive of things. Personally I find that it's basically an anti-chan. Chan culture tends to focus on being contrarian, taboo, or edgy, and reddit tends to focus on being normative and moralizing. Of the two, I greatly prefer chan culture's tendency to edgyness and shitposting, although they both become annoying at times. Also most chan culture today is basically people imitating what their perceptions are of chan culture rather than the original people who created the culture, so a lot of the creativity and nuance is gone and its become a sort of caricature of itself.Reddit on the other hand has very little of its own culture in terms of original content or memes, but just absorbs certain popular opinions and ways of communication and repeats them.

I think you hit the nail on the head. And it's because of the format.

On reddit it's the opposite, where things that are feel good and feed the hivemind ego are upvoted.

I agree, guess part of the problem is now that the internet has been around for so long young people are less inhibited to post their opinions and older people get tired and stop convincing or even engaging with them, so old people are getting fewer while young ones getting more are enforcing a positive feedback-loop, so you have young stupidness that's dominating majority-based forums, until they get old and the cycle repeats.

Pretty much everyone there humblebrags in some shape or form. They will always remind you of how better they are than you, how they have a wife and kids, how they are just another stupid breeder with a superiority complex. This sense of higher worth is boosted by their occupation, which is usually making six figures by doing fuck all every day but messing around with computers. They almost always get what they want in life and they demean those who weren't born with perfect genetics or a silver spoon shoved up their ass. These people operate within a certain mindset that was programmed into them from birth, and they are competently oblivious to what is really going on outside their bubble. It's like they all run on a master script and are unable to deviate from it. They are city-minded and act like urban living is the only way of living when it's a fucking crock of shit. They have the worst memes that nobody finds funny except for literal children. Fuck, I just realized how much I hate that place.

You need to follow a very strict rule of etiquette that just isn't possible if you're not a normalfag. You will slip up eventually and get banned or have your posts downvoted so much that they are hidden, just for saying something that is even slightly out-of-line from the ordinary. Being NEET is frowned upon on every sub and you can't say anything positive about this lifestyle or you risk being labeled as an undesirable. Redditors will literally go through your entire post history and find things to use against you when you're having arguments with them. They are incapable of having an actual debate without resorting to ad hominem. Then comes the inevitable response, "Haha, you're an autistic virgin loser!"

Small subreddits are fine, for the most part. Some are genuinely great and a goldmine of information.
Popular subreddits are trash, because of the hivemind, because it's obviously a battleground for state-sponsored trolls (US/China/Russia, whatever), because of shitty mods with an axe to grind banning anybody who dares express any controversial (=non hivemind-approved) opinion. Many of them are genuinely mentally ill and will get angry if you point out that being a mod isn't a job, lol.
That said, I think it's better than most IBs at this point. I can't even post on 4chan anymore with a VPN and if you get banned you're fucked because you can't just register another account. Also most threads suck. B I suspect that even IBs are slowly dying.

I actually like HackerNews, but I go there mostly for technical news/information. Most people who comment there are in IT or "IT-adjacent" so whatever they say is at least backed by some real-life experience and can articulate their opinions cogently, and sometimes you get to read some intriguing stories about how things are done in an obscure sector of the industry most people don't even know exists. Yes, there's a hivemind, but a different kind of hivemind. Reddit has a geek-kind of hivemind, HN as a nerd-kind of hivemind, if it makes sense. It's not as annoying, at least to me.

It’s really awful, the way it’s setup is to discourage posting disagreeable opinions, the problem is with the upvote/downvote system where you can voice your opinion to a topic without contributing anything to it, which means you could have a large number of people who dislike what you have to say but could never engage with the topic deciding whether it’s good or not

For the most part socially awkward people who can't take a joke. Which is annoying if you do not agree or virtue signal or pander for upvotes by the preaching the lowest common denominator statement.

If you're a noob or zoomer who hasn't gained veteran status about the more obscure idiosyncrasies of the internet then maybe you find it useful to scour subreddits for someone to drop breadcrumbs. Even this well has pretty much dried up. Given it's a platform that is part of pop culture, any tidbits of information immediately loses value as the public scrambles to take advantage of it.

Something in particular had been nagging me about the userbase on there. They write in broken scatter brained thoughts. There are no paragraphs. At times there is severe lack of organized and coherent thought between one line and the next.

It gives me such a headache trying to decipher whatever stream of consciousness the writer is attempting to convey. Often times jumping from one random thought to another. Everybody there seems totally fine with conversing this way.

Sometimes not even completing a

What the hell is the deal with that. Since the later part of the last decade that platform became a mosaic of idiosyncrasies imported from other mainstream platforms. This occurred as a result of mass digital migrations. For example the flood of Facebook users calling subreddits 'groups'. People using subreddits as Twitter hash tags. People trying to ping recognizable brand or celebrity name usernames on reddit as it were official accounts. Not realizing it is random person who registered the username 10-15 years ago.

From where was the brain damaged way of writing adopted from? I don't know enough about other platforms to pick out all the culture clashing idiosyncrasies. Maybe the average normal internet user is just like that. Some how they all comprehend each others illegible drivel.

I tried commenting about this on there before in hopes somebody who writes this way would answer in a straight forward fashion. Most times it's just downvotes without replies. Other times the reply is generic snarky reddit-ism. One time someone suggested it was maybe gen z discord or twitch kids who spam the chat box as a fast a possible. Hence they are used to hastily written half lines. Forget about forming proper thoughts and sentences. Or paragraphs at all. That's too much out of reach.

For a while I thought it was bots but machine generated text isn't messy in this way. It produces at least some form of writing structure.

It seemed to be quite bad for a few years. Recently its seem to have gotten a bit less severe. Something about this in particular had been bothering me for some time.

Only this year I've started browsing reddit, mainly because nowhere in imageboards would I ever find discussion of classical chinese.
But I kind of hate the format. I'm so used tothe imageboard format which is pretty straightforward, whereas reddit tends to bury comments that didn't get enough upboats/replies, and threads are effectively dead the day after.

It seems like r/CrabTears uses the term volcel to insult imcels. Like being volcel is worse than imcel.

I guess a lot of being an imcel is based on self-pity and victimization, so if you turn out to be a volcel than your justification for being a victim melts away and you did it to yourself

https://archive.ph/wip/2StUv

so for someone who does self-identify as a imcel, volcel is the worst insult, up there with fakecel

Close. Tencent is one of the many, many partially state-owned and defacto state-controlled corporations in China. They're not formally a propaganda bureau. But they do follow the CCP's orders, and they're a vehicle for the CCP's power because Tencent buys its way into foreign companies. And reddit is one such company, because Huffman and Ohanian are eager whores for renminbi.

Hence why early talk about the Wuhan virus was suppressed on reddit, and why anything about the Uyghurs is kept out of major subs like r/news. Not that anyone actually gives a fuck about the Uyghurs. But it's morbidly fun to see how reddit employees very obviously start following their Chinese masters' orders once anything Uyghur-related starts getting too many updoots.

It’s easy to forget how much of an echo chamber Reddit is. Saw a random thread about how often people shower and they were talking about showering 2 or 3 times a day, showering once every 2 days is super gross.

Every sub is basically a clique. Every clique has their own Side. The Side is The Truth. People who are not on The Side are said to be Wrong. Le downboats shall flow on ye' who vote outside of The Side. Lest ye' be rife with such folly!

There are gems to be found on Leddit. If you know how to play Minecraft you can use Strip Mining to find them. Peruse the most popular threads and if you like what you see stick around for more. Another approach is to Google "x reviews, x experiences, … reddit" and you'll get experiences or thoughts about something from real people. Great for looking up products.

Reddit is a Woke community. This has pros and cons. It means the people are Nice (and try keep out Rudeness. On Chans: Rudeness is as common as sand in a desert.) But if you take a reasonable perspective that happens not to gel with Wokeness then your ideas will be downboated into oblivion. Aside from having cliques Reddit also has a huge (usually unseen) sock puppet problem. It's very, very common for competitors to write random negative posts about their competition. Likewise, companies can pay users to write exaggerated experience reports about their products so people buy them. The site has an air of candidness so this is probably a highly effective marketing strategy.

Where things on Reddit get much darker and more insidious is where politics and money is involved. Quite often the overall 'narrative' of a sub is heavily manipulated behind the scenes. If you want to see a direct example that doesn't just look like conspiratorial speculation have a look at the Bitcoin subs. They essentially censor different opinions. Splinter subs sprung up to fill the niche but there no where near as popular as /r/Bitcoin.

So there you have it: leddit unleaded.

What you realize when you're actually an adult is people being assholes on the Internet aren't exercising any kind of repressed freedom to convey high truths. Nor are they taking the opportunity to express themselves in new ways. They are simply being assholes.

You come to realize that these people are often underage retards / trolls, with nothing to offer anyone. Often they will talk about 'free speech', 'politics', or appeals to relativism. All of which is meant to distract you from one simple truth: that the person feels entitled to act like a fucktard. Whether or not it impacts anyone else is something they're too selfish to care about.

Yeah this, take white nationalism even, for example. You can talk about it and express your views on it without being an edgy fucktard, like how Jared Taylor has through his career.

you obviously have no use for truth, it doesn't factor into your thought process or life in general, not at all

when you actually have a coherent mind and desire information you stop caring about how it's presented, you just power through everything you experience and relate it to your knowledge and integrate anything it presents that is in common with what you know as truth and keep anything you're not sure about in mind until it fits.

you are a whiny child obsessed with appearances, you don't care what anything means you only care how it effects your appearance; what the consequences are for your social status for being seen near it

They're just there to take advantage of a loop hole for their own addenda and to try claim that any attempts to remove their inane spam-like messages or disgusting, abusive content is 'censorship.'

you just ignore that stuff when you see it and the cost of having to skip through it is worth all the good things you'll see that isn't allowed to be moderated.

the government (the jews) literally has agents and bots that go around spamming insane shit to get you to react exactly this way to the concept of freedom

i mean it doesn't even make sense, why would some one go spam where no one is going to listen to them or buy what they're selling?
they aren't getting a reward for it.
if people like you didn't lavish them with attention they would get literally zero feedback and their behavior would extinct no matter how fucking crazy they are.

but these kinds of crazies are exceedingly rare and disappear when your society is functioning, in part meaning it embraces freedom, which relieves stress on the population and prevents these people from becoming so.

so basically we just have to kill the jews and leftists, get rid of all the nonwhites, and permanently exile or kill all felons so we only have reasonably decent genetic stock as citizens with rights and freedom.

They do care about "free speech" - they need to portray the concept of free speech as something which protects them and them alone, rather than free speech being political speech. They're very quick to censor and shame anyone else's political speech, if someone tells them no. It's really petulant and transparent, but all they need to do is shout really loud until decent people give up, and then they flood the zone with their bullshit and shut down anyone else. It's typical Nazi shit to repurpose the word "freedom" to mean nothing but the freedom of the Nazis to do their usual shit. They actually believe this is what freedom is. When they're called out on this by someone who won't take their bait, they resort to the deeper shit and the Protocols shit, and try to summon the wank. When that doesn't work, they resort to harassment.

The same tactics work for anyone. You'll find liberals, communists, anarchists, and general miscreants doing the same thing fascists do. Anarchists in particular have a philosophical link to fascists so that's where the similarities are strongest. The Big Lie is used because it works and there really is no defense against it in the long run.
