  • Looking for my deceased fathers reddit accunt
    Some websites it's possible he could've used: Tom's Hardware,, GameFAQs, SomethingAwful, and MySpace. Source: 11 months ago
  • Reddit CEO calls unpaid moderators' concerns "Ass shart's" (noise) - time to send a message he won't forget.
    When the blackout happened, I (and quite a few other redditors apparently) went back to the something awful forums. It's a lot smaller than reddit, a completely different format, and it does cost $10 dollars to register an account... BUT it is an actual community with a lot of history, a huge variety of subforums, and the originator of a lot of things like the Let's Play format, slenderman, various memes, and...

  • [meta] Post-blackout update - Yeah, it's ten bucks for an account, but it has a storied internet history and CSPAM is a fantastic place for irreverent but smart discussion about all sorts of things from socialist + communist perspectives--from housing to video games to food to the Prison Industrial Complex to parenting to economics to UFOs to Christian Communism. Those Cities: Skylines Franklin videos that were... Source: 11 months ago
  • Intrusive Targeted Ads on Reddit: A Privacy Concern?
    Also, although not on Reddit: my wife and I were looking at kitschy yard decorations: pink flamingos, those old ladies in bloomers bending over, etc. They were getting pretty wild, and I said they reminded me of the older Sharper Image catalogs. I then mentioned a single, unique product that I had seen in a catalog like that almost two decades ago. For those who are older, it was part of,... Source: about 1 year ago
  • Men making over $100K per year: how hard was it to get over that threshold?
    Ended up going Computer Science. Sacrificed my personal life catching up. Make contacts in the industry. Gott an internship via our (poorly underutilized) career center at a major corporation. Learned a lot, and graduated with a CS degree. First job I got from (true story) a random guy on who flew me across the country for an interview, which I landed. Source: about 1 year ago
  • American Fans, who are some of your favorite writers/bloggers/content creators you enjoy reading (from the States)?

    Every single thing I have posted in the thread has been undoctored unedited actual real stuff. it's all real. This is not a prank. it's not a spy. it's not a revolt. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Goonfleet is trash, and strayed from its ideals. It's just about old guys holding onto power now. Believe me, I started it!
    Bro the entire concept of goonfleet, with the prefitted newbie ships-and-skillbook kits handed out to people to PVP immediately in 0.0 using massed t1 frigates with people recruited from was my idea. Remedial started the corp because he had higher corp management skills trained already and was a powerhungry loser and I've never been one so I've never wanted Space Authority unlike some monetized...

  • Vietnam 'Napalm Girl' receives final skin treatment 50 years after war-defining photograph
    That and the man on his knees as a pistol shot is ready to shoot or that split second after he was shot. Either way,it was a horrifying photo. I also remember Photoshop Fridays on the web site where someone edited in a hopscotch game beneath the 'Napalm Girl' (I hate the moniker). Morbid friends found it funny on the surface and I probably laughed too but it was so disrespectful and callous... Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Kids don’t know bad games. What game did you love as a kid because you just didn’t know better?
    "Even the first level requires mastery of the crappy controls, and the game is just too damn boring to warrant enough repeated attempts to get "good" at it." – 46% ( Source: almost 2 years ago

    35+ year olds...What was your user name. Source: about 2 years ago
  • This is Vladimir Putin, my DD on Ukraine
    No one will read this but do you know what these posts remind me of? The classic articles. Source: about 2 years ago
  • What is something ancient that only an Internet Veteran can remember? and the Best Page in the Universe - I remember those being a primary source of entertainment for internet nerds like myself for quite a while back in the day. Source: over 2 years ago

  • In 2012, a burger king employee anonymously posted an image on 4-chan of him putting his feet in lettuce, with the caption: "This is the lettuce you eat at Burger King." It took 20 minutes for people to track down the branch the employee worked at and contact the news. He was promptly fired.
    There was with torrents and actual funny people, who got put on an FBI watchlist for buying body armor for deploying members that the government said couldn't be bought. Source: almost 3 years ago
  • I photoshopped a gorilla and a kangaroo together
    Man, mid 2000s would have blown your mind. Source: almost 3 years ago
  • Grrr Goons
    The original goons from the forums had a bad reputation because SA had a bad reputation. That reputation was largely undeserved. Sure, there was some mean spirited humor, especially back in the early days. But SA had already undergone a cultural revolution, banning things like ironic bigotry, back when the website you are reading now, Reddit, still allowed pedophile porn. Source: almost 3 years ago
  • Imgur seems to be blocked for PLDT subscribers?
    Only other sites that I know are and Source: about 3 years ago
