Wait, no, this one too. Considering the overlap between userbases and that Reddit is represents some ungodly proportion of internet users it's kind of silly to pretend it's just a den of MRAs and pedos. Of course, it's still a godawful wasteland, but acting like posting on an internet forum is superior to some other internet forum is just

Abortion. No matter your stance on abortion, and no matter your noble efforts to speak calmly and find compromise, there is a huge population of people who hate your mind, body, and soul because of your opinions.

Me, posting on a feminist blog: Abortion is bad, and I hope we stop it some day, but for now it seems reasonable to allow it.
Kneejerkers: HOW COULD YOU SAY ABORTION IS BAD YOU OBVIOUSLY HATE WOMEN AND EQUAL RIGHTS THAT'S THE ONLY POSSIBLE EXPLANATION FOR WHY YOU THINK THIS GET OUT DIE GO TO HELL

My favorite derail was the original "mods knew" thing where some guy said his friend who had been banned had told him that the mods knew that Aatrek was a child molester and was going to come back later with proof and the thread derailed for hours with people speculating and then the guy's friend came back and went "wait, really? I was just making poo poo up."

Those threads are typically shut down because they attract really lovely people who try to derail them by posting inflammatory stuff. A good example would be Adam Bowen in the gamers.txt thread.

You know, I'd be less worried about my 16 year old daughter dating a successful 40 year old cartoonist than dating a 16 year old loser.

I mean, Jesus, kid, at least date a motherfucker with abortion money and house to have sex at where your mother and I don't have to hear it. Also, if he treats her poorly, boom, that asshole's gonna catch a statch charge.

Please, John K. Date my daughter... Save her from dating smelly dropouts who wanna-be Soundcloud rappers.


In the wrestling forum it is a bannable offense to mention hot dogs. This is because a derail debate on the choice between Chicago and New York style hotdogs lasted for weeks. Personally, I'm from the south and we eat chili and coleslaw on our dogs, which is the best way to go, so the argument is moot.

Ask me about my dream Frasier episode where Frasier and Bulldog oil their heads and then rub them together. It's definitely not a fetish of mine, I swear!

Too many derails are started from people not understanding that two things can be wrong simultaneously.

Like, in the OP's derail, the guy who kicked the kid and the dad who punched the guy can both be wrong. Nobody has to be in the right. And there doesn't have to be some kind of hierarchy of wrongs.

The dumbest part is they aren't even different "styles" like with pizza, just slightly different toppings. New York / Chicago rivalries are always sooo loving lame.

I was at the O-hare airport catching an early flight. I picked up a hotdog from the food court, and asked for some ketchup. The dirty looks they gave me kind of pissed me off. What do you give a poo poo about what I put on my dog?

And not all items have the same sales tax, either. If you're in Canada Ontario, everything costs 13% more than the listed price, except things like newspapers and certain food items. In the US I think it varies from state to state?
