    I accept your decision to remove the post—because you are the site admin.

    Note that the post was not removed from Reddit, for the Reddit post's purpose, just as my purpose here, was to criticise the phenomenon, and in no way to support it. And NIMBYism is, from the economic point of view, one of the biggest challenges the world is facing.

    Edit: and, of course, most of the NIMBY phenomenon stays the same: no undesirable people (which usually does not include East Asians today, but it still includes Blacks and Hispanics), no stores, no flats, etc.

    Note: I deliberately chose an old.reddit link. Also, this comment, which is based on the text linked, summarises it from those early 1900s until today:

    Actually, this seems to be the case. Today's activity in the WSB of .win is just a small fraction of the WSB activity on Reddit, but in the days of that short squeeze, the .win group was their main place, and I find that really disturbing.

    So they were basically brigading with mods doing nothing. Well, good to know, and that was explicitly against Reddit's ToS. Also, having looked at the Google Cache of MGTOW2 (mgtow.group) I have to admit that the share of Men Getting Triggered Over Women (as opposed to Men Going Their Own Way) was a bit excessive.

    Anyway, to get a more objective judgement of those people, I will occasionally look at the place where they have landed (fortunately, not .win). And I will keep what you posted in this topic in mind.

    The argument about WSB I am making is that that temporary closure lead to a WSB quasi-community in .win, which had been a pure AuthRight/Alt-Right cesspool before that. And, indeed, WSB is anything but AuthRight.

    It is nice to see that WallStreetBets has been reinstated. However, when it was banned (or privated) during that famous short squeeze, the damage was done.

    When they banned WallStreetBets, that subreddit ended up in .win. There are MANY places that support

    accounts, comments, posts, messages, moderation, hosting, design, mobile apps, etc...

    And, not unexpectedly, it took me less than five minutes to get to a post in .win calling for the creation of a MGTOW community there. Another unpleasant surprise was that that place now has generic “communitites” such as sports/animals/funny—it used to be just a collection of AltRight places ousted from Reddit.

    Banning the community from Reddit makes women more welcome on Reddit

    This is the essence of Reddit quarantine: there are some problematic communitiessubreddits that may draw potential users away, so those subreddits are hidden from searches unless explicitly specified. That subreddit had been quarantined, so anyone who had not known about it could not have seen it.

    However, are they as problematic as FatPeopleHate or CoonTown?

    Now they are most likely to end up as yet other .win communities.

    This is how WallStreetBets ended up, and by all means it is not an AuthRight place.

    A questionable move, to say the least.
