dark side of reddit

Read it is one of the biggest forums on the internet today and as of twenty sixteen the site is amassed over two hundred and thirty six million unique viewers with over eight billion page views per month this goes without saying that with all the posts in conversations taking place there on a daily basis there’s bound to be some weird and disturbing stuff hidden beneath the surface and waiting to be found.
Today.Brain but nine are going to be sharing with you some hidden gems from a dark and disturbing side of reddit.
A user by the name of the a video games seem to be active on many gaming separate it’s before a start on one post that resulted in him getting banned.
A few years ago a user name I wish I was a mean made a post in the gaming subreddit asking what everyone’s favorite mods we’re for elder scrolls oblivion as expected users chimed in with their recommendations on what to install however things begin to get a bit weird when you a video games responded.
His initial response seemed quite normal and sarcastic and read the uninstall button the game is great and all that but god it is hard to fully remove all the junk it leaves behind on your system you really need to check out that mod when the time comes to get rid of it otherwise I think as heroes oblivion overhaul is a nice start.
Now this is nothing out of the ordinary right I thought so too a user who since deleted their account responded with the simple what’s which prompted gave video games to reply with this the uninstall button the game is great you be soft go steam works by by always on DRM but you off to go work always on work DR check out the junk it leaves behind in you know after reading this we can assume that he must have been carelessly typing or you could have been tired or something like that still nothing too out of the ordinary the other guy we mentioned in response once more stating this that makes even less sense of living has an uninstall button and it works I’ve used a more times than I care to mention all mods install themselves in oblivion’s directory the uninstall doesn’t touch them as it’s on a where all you do is delete the oblivion directory.
After this it just begins to get weird gave video games then begins responding with the same phrase you be soft as team works by by always on DRM over and over to the point where you flip the guys common thread with countless reply stating that same phrase.
Jumping over to another post in gaming by another user who since deleted their accounts we can see a post titled Ubisoft’s goes Steamworks bye bye always on DRM which contains a link to a page which now for force in this thread we could see a few groups of people one people actually talking about you was soft and their parents split from DR am on their games to people freaking out wondering what the hell’s going on and three gave video games and a congregation of other users repeatedly posting different spends on that same phrase now right here you might initially be able to pass this guy off as a spammer and to be quite honest I felt the same way it however gets interesting when you realize the fact that this guy commented this mess over four thousand times not only does he do that he also formats each comment differently with some being self referential some containing bold some containing italics some containing links and the vast majority if not all of them having unique spelling and length this guy did more than copy and paste and to be quite honest it doesn’t stop there.
I just mention that gave video games have included links in his comments and I wanted to share some of those with you as we can see the links are sporadically placed within letters and random assortments of words at all take a spin on his initial phrase each link takes it to an image it seems to get more and more disturbing and weird as we go along now as we can see most of these appear to be completely random and their honesty quite a few that come off as pretty funny we have one that it takes a drawing of Asian people laughing and underwear while they’re standing across from them appear to be holding an imaginary gun we have one that it takes a person in a which I was an explosion in the background is another that shows a lady porn milk onto the ground and there’s another that appears to be a distorted person diving into the ground on a beach it’s honestly pretty random however it gets interesting we discover the fact that embedded in one of his comments is this.
Now at this point this seems to be what we gathered so far one we have an unknown person you seem to have undergone a change of some sort leading him to pose the same phrase over and over again to the person seems to have self referential uniquely formatted comments that would take some time to make and three the comments seem to have a random assortment of bizarre images indebted to route with the most notable one being the actual writing of the same phrase it’s being posted.
Nobody seems to be able to have any explanation for this although there are many theories that have been thrown around ranging from a guy who actually snapped and one insane to very sophisticated bought that ran the home of this entire fiasco lastly if anyone tries to access is read a profile does simply be met with the four oh four and that’s it.
A user on a throwaway account called ID K. what even is this made a post about a year ago on the relationship advice sub reddit claiming that she had found a random digital camera hidden away under her kitchen sink should begin by stating that her husband’s relationship is pretty happy go lucky and that nothing really out of the ordinary tends to happen she still waiting on her work authorizations and she’s fairly new to the U. S. and because of that she has a lot of free time to poke around the house.
She stated that one day she randomly stumble upon an old dusty biscuit tin while cleaning under her kitchen sink and began to look inside when she noticed a very well kept a digital camera after turning it on she realize that their random assortments of images taken in pairs of only her things for instance she claims that she found two respective photos of her purse hanging on their dining room chair followed by two pictures of her make up and two pictures of her keys on the kitchen counter and so on and so forth.
Following this she claimed that she didn’t quite know what to make of it if she should even bring it up and that she was completely confused as to why her husband would do this.
Commenters responded to this with theories being thrown all over the place in regards to the photos being in pairs they suggested that the husband possibly didn’t know how to properly operate the camera and like many people held down the button for too long resulting in the pictures coming out in pairs also in regards to the photos of the items themselves well there been claims that one he could be doing it to possibly insure that he didn’t get her a birthday or Christmas gift of something that she already has two he shuffling through her items when she’s not around and possibly dressing up in using her things without her knowledge of some sort of fetish three he thinks that there’s a ghost haunting the house and wants to make sure that the items are where they left them or for he’s doing it for insurance purposes in case anything were to happen to these items.
Now I want to take a moment to pick some of these apart in regards to thirty one the gift thing would make sense however she also stated that he had taken pictures of her keys which essentially voices claim.
Theory too well we’re to should could be a sensible one with a husband ensuring that he leaves for used items where the initially work however if he was actually doing this and depending on how big he is then she most likely would have noticed her things being scratched or maybe her make up being used so to be quite honest the seems unlikely regarding theory number three I honestly think it’s silly first off why the hell would hide these photos from his wife and also if there was actually something weird going on in the house the wife would most definitely have noticed and she seems to be the one that’s how most of the time anyway.
Lastly what number for being the most logical least extreme theory once again why would he be compelled to hide the camera in a dusty biscuit ten under the sink without telling his wife it just doesn’t add up and it’s left a lot of people including myself confused and intrigued.
All in all she hasn’t been heard from since she never returned to follow up on the story it’s all pretty sketchy and I’m still curious exactly what this guy was doing with all those pictures and what he could have been hiding.
