We do a talk show, you know the podcast you’re listening to right now and from time to time we, and by “we” I mean mostly “me” put our foot in our mouths because we’re passionate about things and when we see something go wrong, we speak out.

Most folks understand our motivation but there’s some who really get their panties in a bunch because we didn’t come correct or we said something they didn’t like.

What happens when you find yourself in the middle of an Internet flame war?

Today, we take a look at how we’ve handled online trolls, astroturfers, or regular bullies who don’t like what we have to say and who make it their #1 agenda to put a stop to our creative efforts.

Listen as we chat about how to blast astroturfers, squash trolls and put an end to the haters.

    2006 the early days of the Internet…

    1996 maybe :-)

    A good mod crew is essential for every kind of group.

    One bad mod can spell ruin for the entire group.

    And yes it’s the usual fuck heads who are complaining

    Wasn’t seeing it at first because most of ’em are in my kill file already.

    People need to learn using filtering.

    That awkward moment when Reddit DOES have a terms of service.


    • Thanks for posting that, but I think the user agreement allows for people to raise funds. You can’t use the reddit site to directly sell stuff on there (how would that even be possible) but I’ve seen dozens of forums ask for money, especially political groups.

      Here’s the paragraph in question (unless I’m missing something). Am I missing something?

      reddit isn’t intended as a marketplace

      Reddit is not intended to be a marketplace for any goods or services. However, you may find commercial links, coupons, deals, advertisements and other third-party offers on reddit. In addition, reddit may have affiliate relationships with certain of these third parties and may receive compensation for any purchase made from them. reddit is not a party to, nor in any way responsible for, any transactions you have with these third parties, even if reddit has an affiliate relationship with such parties. For this reason, any transactions you undertake are your responsibility alone, so be careful.

      9 You may not use reddit to conduct transactions for any illegal goods or services.

      I don’t like lynch mobs, it was a bad idea to throw the party at a space that was being used for something else and ultimately it would have been better to have it at some bar where people under 21 could have gotten in (in Califnornia as I understand people can get into bars but not drink if they are under 21.)

        Hi Fausto,

        the relevant part of the useragreement is this


        26 Moderating a subreddit is an unofficial, voluntary position. We reserve the right to revoke that position for any user at any time. If you choose to moderate a subreddit, you agree to the following:

        You may not enter into any form of agreement on behalf of reddit, or the subreddit which you moderate, without our written approval.

        You may not perform moderation actions in return for any form of compensation or favor from third-parties.

        One could argue that this rules got violated.
