2 days back I was traveling down the 5th ring road, towards shuwaikh, there was a huge traffic jam, it was more than a km long, my only guess was there has to be an accident somewhere.  Down the the road, on the opposite side was an accident, all the traffic on the shuwaikh to salmiya side had come to a halt,  people were stopping to view the accident on the the salmiya to shuwaikh side of the road.

At the point of exit to the Avenues/shuwaikh, there was a traffic jam there too.  All the way to 6th ring road.  It was a 3 car accident.

Yesterday there was a 2 car accident on the 5th ring road on the shuwaikh to salmiya side, and on the my way back another accident involving 10 cars.

I can’t seem to understand, why people tail-gate here in Kuwait, they seem to have the notion that if they are about to smooch the car in front, the person will get frightened and will move.  Please keep in mind the smooching occurs at over 120km/hr speed.  The reason, accidents happen here is just out of carelessness.

What more of a ban can you put on me, not letting me log in? Are you seriously out of your mind. Neither are you unwillingly to listen to me, nor are you willing to unban the sites I have requested you, after providing credible evidence that I am not banning.

Its you, who is not providing credible evidence, and being an admin is not just the title.

If reddit was changing you could say it was going down the drain. However reddit has and always will be this way. It’s not going anywhere. Stop trying to change it.

It’s a subreddit controlled by qgyh2, a reddit mod/admin?? He handcrafts a summary of reddit for the day just for you!

I think that the front page of reddit is in a world of its own when it comes to stories. I know that this has been said before, but the best content is within the subreddits. There are good aggregators like reddit all and even (my favourite) tldr – by qgyh2.

Sorry to rant, but I really hate it when people complain about a perfectly good site being stupid or dying.

re: Unable to post to anything

Ok I looked. All I see is imagevat.com for the last month. What is your point?

ps. I saw one post that wasn’t from imagevat, but interestingly was from a known blog spam site that we banned about a year ago…

from jedberg sent 21 hours ago

re: Unable to post to anything

Your spam filter is not rocket science, it works by detecting multiple posts from one domain in 15-30 minutes time span. blocks the user for about a day then permits them to post from the same domain. and bans them for good on multiple posts, then there is the manual addition + the user contribution

Wow. You couldn’t be more wrong. That isn’t even close to how it works.

I am just asking by human observance, as to what I posted was spam, simple

It isn’t what you posted that is the problem, it is how you post. You don’t contribute to reddit. You rarely leave comments. You only post from one site. You are like a guy who walks into a room and just starts yelling about yourself, without listening to anyone else.

You are the reason this site is “turning into myspace” as you say.

The point being made was that complaining about hot sauce is even more worthless to the community than recommending hot sauce. The only way to improve the community is to post interesting links and contribute intelligently and thoughtfully to discussions.

re: Unable to post to anything

I am not asking you a favor, you are objecting to my posting, so I asked for evidence.

You’re asking me to do you the favor of unbanning you. That is a favor. I don’t have to do it.

Your mentioning imgur, is good enough of your supporting imgur, then why not mention flickr?

I believe I did mention flickr, but flickr is hard to use, and your complaint was that flickr is harder to use than imagevat. So I gave you an alternative.

And like I said, I shall stop posting from imagevat.com if, you provide me one credible evidence that I am spamming.

And like I said, we’ll keep banning it.

I’m not going to provide you with evidence, because I then you would know how our spam detection works. So I’m just going to say this instead, and maybe you will know what it means, and maybe you won’t: culture.

post replyReddit is getting more stupid as time goes, its getting more like myspace

You have made a statement about how stupid reddit is by posting to reddit. Probably not how I would have done it, but hey its reddit, you can do that here.

As you posted to ask reddit, generally there is the asking part, thats what the ‘ask’ in askreddit means.

You need:

“/r/inane comments” subreddit, its just down the hall.

post replyReddit is getting more stupid as time goes, its getting more like myspace

Try not to read the comments. At least, that’s the reason that I hate Reddit. I don’t mind the insightful comments, but those damn pun threads and people trying to throw out jokes just for “karma” just kill me. I suppose the self posts (absolutely no offense to you, since this is one) can be pretty annoying, too. Meh, I don’t know. I hate parts of Reddit, but I really do enjoy seeing many news articles right as they come out, instead of days or weeks later, or possibly not even at all. Anyway, I hope it doesn’t turn out like myspace, either. edit: Oh, yeah, where’s your damn question? =)

If reddit is getting more stupid as time goes on, everybody who sits around and complains about how reddit is dead are contributing more than anybody else who posts stupid comments. Comparing it to MySpace is just stupid anyway.

Also, that is damn good sauce.

re: Unable to post to anything

my decision is fixed, like I said, I will stop posting from imagevat.com if you can provide credible evidence that I am spamming

Please feel free to keep posting from imagevat.com, and we will continue to ban imagevat.com. I don’t think you understand how this works. Since it is our website, and you are asking us to do you a favor, you need to provide the evidence, not us.

and keeping on telling me to post from imgur.com and post from other sites

I didn’t tell you to post from imgur. I told you that imgur offers the same features as imagevat, and suggested it as an alternative.

And by the way, in case you were wondering, Wired does not own reddit. You have been misinformed.

We have full editorial control.

In other words, I am the last and final decision maker. There is no one above me. My decision is the final word.

You can email whomever you want, but they will simply forward the email to me to take care of it.

So, Dave, here are you options once again:

  1. Post from other sites.
  2. Stop posting anything.

Take care.

It is now 1am where I am, and I am tired. I am going to sleep now.

I will not provide any further reasons for my decision.

Post from another site, or stop posting anything.

I look forward to your decision when I awake.

Goodnight.

You have exactly two choices:

  1. Post from another site
  2. Stop posting anything.
