OMG:  Genuine question. Why do we need to have omguw.com when we have reddit.com/r/uwaterloo?
What's your motivation of coming here versus reddit? I would rather have weekly OMG thread or weekly missed connections thread. There are more number of mods there along with user/password system so you can collect your karma which is also a good indicator of troll post. I find this site a redundant and since we are getting a lot of complaints from people thinking this is censored or not censored enough, just head over to reddit and be gone with your worries. Thoughts?

MOD'S NOTE: Would usually put this in ASKs but we didn't get any submissions today.

  1. I like the fact that here there is no censorship, so people are honest with their opinions, even the ones I dont like.

    2. There isn't any censorship on reddit? LOL

      My ass there isn't. Downvoted posts get automatically hidden just because your view doesn't agree with all the other mindless sheep?

      Jesus. You're as indoctrinated as them.

    3. There's a word for what that is 1b, but 'censorship' isn't it. And you can adjust your settings on reddit to change the threshold at which a post becomes hidden.

    4. Of course you can adjust that - BUT it is AUTOMATICALLY censored before you make such changes. Plus, if you don't make an account and you're just lurking, then you would be unable to adjust the threshold at which a post is hidden. I call that censorship!

  2. Nah, there's a douchebag like GramTheDon, who censors people. Basically a guy who didn't go to Math or engineering trying to feel self-important

  6. I come here because OMGUW was here first. Also the types of submissions are different. People post on reddit about lots of things, but this by definition is shocking/unbelievable things that happen at UW/to UW students.

    1. But we need those shocking/unbelievable things that happen at UW to be exposed. Why would you let censorship take over? We need a place for those students to speak those atrocities they find.

  7. I use /r/uwaterloo more than omguw because it makes me feel less awful about my fellow students. omguw is often just racist trash comments because anonymity (!= pseudonymity) permits the very vocal awful minority to speak up, and so the quality of the site is just getting shittier and shittier. So many responses are void of interesting content and full of hate.
