Making Things Worse: Reddit Changes The Rules...Again

In an update to our video "Reddit Rule 1: Hate is Wrong...But Not THAT Hate (VL255)", Reddit has seen the error of their ways (!); immediately revising their rule interpretations to no longer express that hatred is allowed against "the majority".

Unfortunately, however, as is so often the case with rapidly imposed rule changes, the end result may just be...worse than the original.

We're allowed to hate bad drafting because it's clearly in the majority...in Virtual Legality.
