          Why should we dumb things down for them using the /s tag tho? Just let them fume when they don’t get a joke.

        This website can be way more toxic than Reddit ever was. Especially when it comes to people who don’t get jokes.

          I personally haven’t found that to be true in the tone of people’s posts in general, but I also don’t give a shit about downvotes if that’s what you’re referring to.

            Nope. Talking about crap like this which is a very tame example. Just using it as its the most recent. This kind of crap is a constant here on smaller more toxic reddit.

            Look at that holier then thou, virtue signaling bullshit response to an obvious joke lol

              It’s because there’s a higher proportion of ridiculous, stupid people on lemmy who genuinely believe dumb shit like “I hope humanity destroys itself” so it’s hard to see when some things are a joke.

                  Nah, they’re sincere, I’ve called several of them out. Doomers and accelerationists.

          100%

          The dogpiling is worse than reddit, for sure. I purposely upvote on obvious dogpiles, but it’s futile.
