Partial Transcript: Episode 53: (Reddit)
Virginia: Do you go and downvote everything he’s ever posted?
Andrew: I thought about it, but then I thought, “I don’t really have time for this. I’m going to go do something productive.”
John: What was the title of your post? I’m on r/Dallas right now.
Andrew: My post was…
Virginia: You can’t tell him that! Then he’ll know your screen name!
Andrew: My screen name is “aceat164.” Boom. Done. You can Google my name, and the first result is my screen name.
Virginia: But the whole point of Reddit is to be anonymous.
Andrew: That’s why you have a burner account.
Nick: So you can post sex pics.
Andrew: Cause I post to gone wild all the time.
Nick: I was trying to think of the name! And Andrew pulls it off the top of his head. I know Andrew has a favorite list.
Andrew: If you browse Reddit at all, you see it mentioned all the time. It’s almost a default setting.
Nick: I never go on Reddit.
Virginia: You’re kidding. I send you all kinds of stuff.
Nick: You send me the links. I never see Reddit itself. I can’t follow any of the strings.
Virginia: Because you’re not smart enough to follow the indents. The indents are the only thing that matters.
Nick: What the fuck are you talking about?
Andrew: They’re nested.
Virginia: The comment on the left is the parent comment. The comment that’s under it and indented is the child.
Nick: I get that, but they don’t make any sense. Every single Reddit comment is another meme.
Andrew: You were probably in r/funny.
Virginia: Yeah. They kind of riff of each other.
