The title of your submission should be a quote taken out of context from a reddit comment. Links must be to text submissions on reddit only.

Rules:

  1. Enough of the conversation should be provided to allow someone to understand why something was said.

  2. The post being quoted must be linked.

  3. A post that comes out of no where does not belong.

  4. Comments should forward the discussion at least minimally. Comments that are only insults do not do this. Comments with a condescending tone or that insult, but continue the conversation will be judged on a case by case basis.

  5. Context must change the meaning of the post. Posts where the context reveals that the quote was meant in the most obvious context will generally be kept but, posts where the quote is unambiguous will be removed.

  6. Quotes must contain at least one full sentence appearing in the referenced comment or post.

How to submit:

  1. Check the rules to make sure what you want to post belongs here.

  2. Your post title should be a quote.

  3. You must submit as a link.

  4. The link should be a permalink to a comment or a post on Reddit.

  5. Add ?context=4 to the end of the link. You may use another number, but please use a number high enough to contain the full context. Having the full context means that users can tell how the quoted-title means something different than what they thought it meant before clicking through.

  6. Unless Metabot beats you to it, after submitting, post a reply to your quotee letting them know they have been sent to r/nocontext.

Please report all submissions that do not belong in r/nocontext using the report button. It helps the moderators remove bad links more quickly.

Comments that do not need additional context will be removed.
