| Simple Questions | Simple Answers |
|:-----------|:------------| | What is this subreddit? | This subreddit is a place to both mock and refute the ideas of subreddits that exist solely to propagate bigotry towards a certain race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, religion, sexual orientation, and the like. A fuller definition of both hate subreddits and our purpose, as well as a list of notable hate groups on Reddit, can be found here. More information about our purpose can be found in our FAQ. Troll subreddits and subreddits whose purpose is not explicit hatred will not be considered hate subreddits and links to both will be removed. |
| Why are you doing this? | Part of our mission is to get moderators to step up, because it is ultimately them who decide if their community is going to be a hate community or not. If this has no hope of happening, as is often the case with smaller subs, we want to pressure the admins to act. Obviously they aren't going to quarantine or ban a default sub and since it's not our primary goal anyways, we regularly make an exception for defaults, when hateful comments are up-voted and left there by the mods. |
| What if I'm banned? | Modmail us if you're banned and you believe the ban was unjustified. Please do remember that hurling slurs at the moderators will not improve your chances of getting unbanned. Spamming mod mail is not a good way to get on our good side. | | What if I'm from a hate subreddit? | People from hate subreddits can post here, but there are enforced limitations on what you are allowed do in such a case. See here for more information. Be civil.
| Simple Rules | Those Rules Explained|
|:-----------|:------------| | Follow the Reddit rules, NP links | We enforce the global Reddit rules here in AHS; any doxxing or spamming in particular will be met with immediate ban. Given that brigading is against the rules of Reddit, we enforce NP for all links to other places on Reddit, and additionally, if you are found to be commenting in a linked post after it was made, you will be banned from further participation in this sub. Non-NP Reddit links will be automatically removed. To NP a link, simply change the "www" to "np" (http://www.reddit.com to http://np.reddit.com) It goes without saying that calls to violence or doxxing will not be tolerated. | | No slurs | Racial, ethnic, religious, transphobic, homophobic, misogynist, and other slurs will not be accepted - because we automatically remove them, we recommend that you avoid direct quoting of slurs. Depending on the context and severity, users throwing around slurs will be met with a ban or a warning.| | No deleting comments | Seriously. It's embarrassing to lose an argument, but deleting comments in a conversation serves nothing but giving you a free one-way ticket to being banned indefinitely. | No ban evasion | This will lead to your alt being banned, and to you being reported to the admins. Ban evasion is a shadowban-worthy violation of the Reddit rules. |No calls to violence| Seriously, none. This is strictly enforced. Strictly. We aren't kidding. |Do not debate economic theory|This is not the appropriate sub to do so. We encourage you to take these matters elsewhere. As a reminder, we take slapfighting and calls to violence seriously here. |No shitposting|This is purely subjective. No slap fights. We may choose to warn you. We may not.
