This is a subreddit dedicated to satirically mocking those people who, blinded by their own nostalgia, believe certain things in the past to be unequivocally better than today. We place a special emphasis on music, because this subreddit was created after annoyance over "born in the wrong generation" attitude often expressed by fans of 60s/70s rock.
- Post images or videos of quasi-nostalgic attitudes to music (any genre) or any other media, e.g. TV shows, movies, literature, et al.
- Be supportive and help people understand. Discussion is always welcome.
- Report comments or submissions that break the rules, PMing when needed.
- Censor reddit usernames when posting screenshots. Too many subs have degenerated to being shitty witch hunt clubs.
- Post something just because it has an opinion you don't like or disagree with.
- Post meta links to reddit, facebook or anything that may lead to personal information. Twitter is the exception, but screenshots are almost always preferred.
- Post original content or satire, except on saturdays with the proper [SATIRE] tag.
- Witchhunt or bully. Any instance of digging up info will result in a permanent ban.
- Un-ironically put down someone else's musical tastes, unless you're Reese. Try to be open minded. Saying "X sucks" and nothing else won't result in a ban, but is frowned upon.
- PM the mods for flair requests. Use /r/LWGFlairRequest instead
- Be racist/sexist/homophobic/transphobic/ bigoted in any way. This is left up to the discretion of the moderators. Violators will be banned without warning.
- Shitpost. Low effort karma whoring, meme spam, lyric chains and the like are not allowed.
- Act like a fuccboi
- Take this place too seriously. We're here to have a laugh, not get upset
