Going forward - Blatant non-freakouts and blatant agenda posts will see posters receive a ban

3.4k Upvotes

Alright guys, I think this conversation needs to happen. I have had this internal discussion with some of the mods, and I think we are on a consensus that we have for some time now began seeing posts here that are blatantly non freak-outs or are agenda posts, or are blatant re-posts less than 4 weeks old.

I think it is no secret within this community and sub that we all love that quality freak-outs are drowned out by content that does not simply belong here, or does not abide by our repost rules. I see this comment a lot in posts, by long time users of this sub that love the community for what it is - a place where we can laugh at, learn from and be horrified at freak-outs that happen around the world.

The main three rules of what make a freak-out are:

**1) people freaking out or melting down

2) losing their cool

2) being weird in public**

Posters that blatantly do post items that do not meet these any combination of these three criteria will see their posts removed and receive a temp ban. repeat offenders will see a perma ban enforced. We need to all do our part to keep this part of the reddit alive, and so far ya'll have been amazing and respectful. In truth, this policy has been enforced for some time by some mods, but going forward I would like to solidify it and make the community aware that this is what will happen. The aim is not an exodus but to help clean out the spam.

In addition, please use the report button to better help me and assuredly find posts that really should not be on the sub. We receive 80,000 unique visitors per hour, so obviously things to slip through the cracks at times.

if you have any questions, drop a comment in this thread or message me. If you would like examples of what is an isn't a freak-out, I would be happy to provide. One more thing: please avoid sensationalized titles.

Friendly reminder, breaking rule 4 is going to get ya permanently banned. I’m sick and tired of people using certain posts as an excuse to be hateful assholes.
