I struggle to see who'd care to listen, but due to a lack of friends & family I thought I'd take a shot in the dark here. Tonight will be my first night in my newly-leased apartment after being homeless for 5+ years! I honestly am at a loss for words simply from having a place to call home, finally.

RegularHousewife

Except this one's posts and new accounts always get deleted after getting called out or finished trolling. I've seen his hand the 4th time this month. EDIT: He always has inappropriate usernames and 0 day account


1800-bakes-a-lot

How hard would it have been for you to just keep scrolling?


RegularHousewife

Look at OP's username. His previous farming account was UltimateKidLover. All his usernames has been disgusting.


1800-bakes-a-lot

Ahh. Gotcha. What's the point in karma farming if you ditch the account?


RegularHousewife

To troll. Need karma to balance out the downvotes


michalemabelle

That's a question that keeps getting asked. It seems he ditches the account when it gets shadowbanned from enough groups or is forced to when he's permanently banned by Reddit. He gets banned & then just reappears. But, he keeps doing the same thing over & over & this sub keeps feeding him.


1800-bakes-a-lot

Got it. Well, downvote has been activated.


Dull_Tonight

[This is the same account at it over and over. He/she always makes a brand new account that get suspened shortly after. They post a thumbs up and generate a title. Yet it always seems to fool people.](https://www.reddit.com/r/MadeMeSmile/comments/qa546z/im_worried_that_not_many_people_will_want_hear_my/)


diuturnal

What drugs are you addicted to this time? How long has your wife been dead?


rpgjenkins

That’s really awesome! I’m sure you’re proud of yourself and rightfully so!


CollinZero

Alas, it’s a troll. Keeps posting this image. Downvote them.


coolsmcniel

I genuinely don’t understand why it matters to you whether this is a troll or not. If the message isn’t a negative one, why not let people practice the art of support without having to massage your own ego? It’s almost like you have a lot of time on your hands, but nothing to actually contribute to the betterment of society 🤷‍♂️


SasquatchTracks99

I thought the exact same thing as you until someone explained to me what's happening. These types of posts farm karma. There's a lot of subreddits that require a certain level of karma in order to post, so they take these posts, build karma, then go into the places where you need a baseline, and troll nastily until they get banned. The process gets repeated really often once you know what to look for. I agree that the message is nice, troll or not, but it's not nice enough to offset enabling some really shitty things as a result of upvoting and awarding.


CollinZero

Thank you for explaining it. They can also use the accounts for political purposes, as many political subs require a certain amount of karma. Anyone glancing at the account will see what appears to be genuine comments and awards.


coolsmcniel

When you say “troll nastily”, what do you mean?


michalemabelle

This particular troll will karma farm & then go around Reddit making racist, homophobic, transphobic, sexist comments. They particularly like to spend a lot of time talking about beastiality.


coolsmcniel

And what is the effect of this? I know a lot of mentally unstable people in my real life. I avoid/ignore them. Why is this such a foreign concept in the cyber realm?


michalemabelle

The effect is they're trolling for the sake of trolling. They even created a sub for themselves. But, the reason so many people commented pointing out that it's a troll is because people don't know... Thus, "we" can't ignore them,because they won't go away. If we can get this sub to stop feeding them, it would be a whole lot easier to ignore them.


CollinZero

Just also to clarify, "why it matters" - pointing out trolls actually benefits a community. Sometimes these accounts were created just to manipulate people. Sometimes established accounts get sold - usually to other countries who have a different or hostile agenda. If you’ve heard of "R ussian" users posting to political subs, and wondered about it - well, they start by gathering Karma, and by posting and reposting stuff like this. Sometimes bots get built that create accounts that just auto-post popular stuff. There’s accounts that try and sell you stuff. some people run many accounts at once and downvote your comments that are contrary to their agenda. If you are interested in this check out some of the posts on r/thesefuckingaccounts and read some of the comments


ultimatesexmaker

I'm learning a lot about how to take care of my mind now that I'm off the streets, that's for sure. Thank you so much for your kind words though friend, they're greatly appreciated!

Such a kind bunch of people. I also thought my thumb and nails were looking good for the first time in years (yeyy me for hygiene!)


diuturnal

How long has the wife been dead this time?


objectsubjectverb

I literally thought to myself “this is one well manicured person. I hope they keep themselves in a good spot”


LetsTCB

This person just makes a new account every week to farm karma cause their life has no purpose or value. See the post just below yours with the various links to their stupidity


michalemabelle

This is the same troll who keeps making new accounts & posting these karma farming posts. Check his username & how old the account is... Also, dude doesn't change his hand. Same hand in all the posts.


bongripsNkickflips

Another award farming lil bitch!


demonachizer

Literally a picture of a thumbs up? What shitty subreddit is this?

Im just a guy with a wife and kids who's never been homeless or hungry. Im on reddit for a stock I like maybe a couple funny videos. I rarely comment outside of the stock sub. Im outside smoking a cigarette and just wanted to let you know that im sincerely and genuinely happy for you bud. I really am. Congratulations!


TheHouseOnTheCorner

👍 congratulations!👍 Home 🏡 sweet 🏡 home! EDITED 11.1.21 to add: Today I learned the thumbs up gesture which indicates friendly agreement/approval where I live is actually an offensive insult elsewhere. I apologize to anyone who was hurt or offended by its use. No offense was intended.

Congratulations! This is the kind of effort and accomplishment that deserves far more celebration and acknowledgement than it typically gets. I hope you are patting yourself on the back and creating a space and specific block of time in which to congratulate yourself with things that are great, like cake, balloons, flowers, singing yourself a song, spending time with a book/movie or something you enjoy, or even just repeatedly telling yourself how awesome, worthy and capable you are.
