The thing that creeps me out the most about a forum like reddit is the extreme obsession with the social ethics of everyday situations, sibling conflicts, relationship issues, random confrontations and so on. They go nuts for being allowed to deliberate on stuff like who is the good guy who is the bad guy.
reddit feels a generation behind to me. theres a beleif in The Way Things Are that makes the social ethics of daily situations important battles to fight. Like in the late 90's when the emascualation of the man at the hands of tiny quotidian annoyances while commuting, working, grocery shopping and etc. was the concern of everyone.
 

woops

is not like other people
why dont you try, investigating some more nuanced examples, of i am an aita, instead of prejudice confirmation activity

followed by self regarding. immersion in incomprehensable gibberish

They also LOVE "Not to judge bla bla bla [preface to show that they're a good empathetic person] but XYZ is absolutely unacceptable, from a basketball perspective, from a moral perspective"

They also love to say things like "I think we can all agree that" or "I think it's time we all admit that" etc etc

You can feel this palpable sense of the "we" group mind working

Or "Why is no one talking about X" and calling out "double standards" and "hypocrisy" and being shocked and appalled when a corporation or owner "only cares about revenue"

this is why the non sports conversations within the NBA subreddit are so hypnotic. Its unstable ground so these mechanisms are working twice as hard
