Reddit...why did I not learn my lesson the first time!
« on: May 18, 2021, 06:42:46 PM »
After not going on there for the past 5 or 6 months, I decided to post a few of my collection photos. It only took a day, but I have people questioning my sanity, questioning why I do not support Leatherman because I made a thread to educate people about the fakes out there, etc. So many opinionated people that know jack that it is frustrating. I am seriously contemplating shutting down my account this time.  :facepalm:

I guess I shouldn't lament. I am sure a few negative comments won't chase me away. I am just amazed at how some folks think however.  :facepalm:

I saw that post, I have no idea why people were so opposed to it haha, I thought it was very interesting seeing the differences.

Yeah, well I noticed one of the moderators named Leatherman_Official commented and possibly took it down. I am not exactly what one would call a Reddit power user, but I noticed that the thread showing the Leatherman knockoffs is now removed from the r/Leatherman feed.  :think:

So much for that I guess.  :dunno:

If that actually was LM moderating a subreddit...
:facepalm:

I'm glad that they don't moderate this forum! :)

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

Yeah, not a fan that the Leatherman Official account is a moderator on that.

That is weird. From my end, I do not see it in the Leatherman subreddit...but then I am not well versed with the Reddit universe,  so most likely my fault.

It isn’t your fault.  MTO can get you to forget how other forum/platforms can be.

if it is LM then the behaviour is simply odd. one would think that they would want people to be educated about fakes and buying the real product

No it wasn't Leatherman from what I can tell. I was in error. I still cannot see that thread from my account, but when I log in under no account, that post is alive and well. I have no idea what is going on other than it is probably something on my end. No, one of the administrators named Leatherman_Official just commented about one of them being an interesting multi-tool, and then I couldn't see the posting in the r/Leatherman subreddit. I assume I got blocked or something. I am wrong. I will survive. Just a bit shocked at all the arm chair warriors on Reddit...not sure why I should be...I left  there once already for the same reasons.

+1

So, apparently, warning someone not to buy a fake but choose the original instead is not supporting a company.

 ??? ???

Man, how stupid am I not to understand that?!

well good news Chako  that it wasn't from the official team.

as far as odd comments, that is maybe a given. there are few places online that somehow manage to keep a good community where those are cut to a minimum. at least the multitool community is still rather free of social media influencers and self proclaimed experts doing dumb things for views

Dear lord. I guess I offended a few folks over at Reddit. Seems like i am a braggart. I guess trying to help folks with some multi-tool knowlege and sharting photos of my collection was too much for a few. I am certain I will no longer participate on Reddit anymore. I do not need the negativity.  :facepalm:

Better to just link to here as a reference.  I'll bet those keyboard warriors won't be so tough when away their own turf.

I just walked away from Reddit. It was fun when it lasted, but I do not need the aggravation. While there, I did post a lot of links to MT.O, and I think a few new members came over because of that..but I cannot be sure.

I see that you decided to keep posting at reddit (the thickness comparison). Good! Though I only follow the posts that you create here, there are many people like me who enjoy your posts and find them to be informative no matter where you choose to post.

I made the mistake of going back, and someone asked me for help. I have a hard time refusing to help someone. Guess that is why I am an educator.  :facepalm:

Reddit is a swamp full of knowledgeable people, vile first-class a-holes, and everything in between. I posted a few clueless posts which got a bunch of downvotes, I deleted the posts and moved on. Don't let the negative comments and others' jelousy get to you.  :cheers:
