i agree reddit is gay. i mostly only post on smallish comedy subs, but i hate it like any decent person.
that said, people from various reddit communities will be influencing the communities you go to online out of sheer probability. even if you don't care about it your communty is still being affected by stuff that happens there due to that interaction.
i'm not claiming all hate is from mysterious Chap o people. my claims are:
-a significant amount of it is
-as a rule, they say "i dont even care about his politics" despite being explicitly politically motivated
-many, many people hate sam for his politics and use other things as excuses, and if you want to understand these personality types you can look at chap otraphouse as a clear representation of how such people think and act
