You could, of course, create an alt account, but that’s also frowned upon.Please remember that this is a list of things NOT to do…if you took these words of wisdom as an instruction for what TO do you’d have a rough ride on Reddit.Many have been active on Internet forums for years and can spot a troll from a considerable distance.
This rings even more true when it comes to posting content than it does to posting comments.Each subreddit has rules regarding the type of submissions the moderators will accept and what they will delete.In /r/tea_party a comment supporting liberal politicians will be roundly shunned. Anyone who spends any serious amount of time on the Web will be aware of Internet memes. Even if they don’t then they will likely have made an appearance on the site by the time you spot it on the Web.At least those who venture into the useless-yet-entertaining side streets the Web has to offer. Blindly posting that meme, or funny picture, or movie quote, or unmissable video, to Reddit without first checking if it’s fresh will lead to a loss of Karma. If the content you have in mind has already been posted then leave it well alone.After all, no one knows who you are or whether you actually believe the stuff you’re spouting.
That may be so, but as stated already, Reddit users weren’t born yesterday.You should also pay close attention to which subreddit you’re commenting in.In /r/atheism a comment condoning extreme religious beliefs won’t go down well.Failing to do so will result in moderators deleting your content or your comments, or result in other Redditors voting you down.If you want to keep hold of all that lovely Karma you have previously built up then don’t be the troublemaker that goes out of their way to make up their own rules as they see fit.Not that it really matters much – after all, Karma cannot be exchanged for goodies – but losing it can lead to you having a bad name, which is not a fun experience in a community such as Reddit.
