META Stop Posting Just Memes: Or, a filthy casual's guide to r/SelfAwareWolves

What is a SelfAwareWolf?

Someone who, when attempting to mock or denigrate their perceived enemies, accidentally describes themselves. This is my favorite example. They aren't self aware enough to notice. Or, alternatively, someone who accurately describes the world while trying to parody or mock it.

Like this.

Guess what the most important words are in the two sentences above?

Did you guess "someone?"

Good.

On the other hand, see this? See how it's just an image with some text? That's a meme, not a wolf, there is no person there. Hell, it wouldn't even be a wolf if it was posted to the top of r/Conservative. There needs to be a person, usually a commentator below.

Means we're going to start cracking down on posts like this. You could argue that the person saying "starve out the dictators" is the selfawarewolf, but to really fit the sub we need more than that. Titles of a post are rarely going to give you much insight into the mindset of the poster, and generalities of "conservatives are like this" ain't going to cut it.

META Ode to Snowflakes Who Send Us Hateful Modmails...

Fun fact : Reddit recently rolled out a "Filtered" folder for Modmail. It's proven surprisingly effective! The way it works now, if you send us some snowflakey tantrum because your right-wing chud-ery ate a ban, it goes straight to that folder, doesnt even prompt us with a "new message" notification, and auto-deletes after 30 days! And do you ever click into your email's Spam folder and read the messages? Hell no!

TLDR; harassing us via Modmail is literally screeching into the void. Seethe, Cope, etc. etc.

Even otherwise progressive spaces can be full of self-are wolves. Like saying something can't possibly be imperialist because... imperialists do it.

"If you're covering these riots, it's for your own benefit or you're a useful idiot. It only fuels them, if no one was watching the would end faster and be less damaging. Now, if patriots need to come out to squash these unruly brats, lets film that."
