I usually start my day by checking email and then perusing the front page of Reddit while enjoying my coffee. Reddit is a great site and can be thoroughly entertaining, but it can also be a bit daunting, especially to newcomers. It doesnâ€™t take long in each thread to see a snarky response from one poster to another – â€œCool story broâ€ is often seen throughout a thread. Redditors can be very serious about whatâ€™s posted on the site, even more serious about how the site operates.
Redditors come in all different types of personalities.Â Business Insider kindly put together a list of the 10 Types Of Reddit Users Everyone Hates. Redditors themselves are all too happy to talk about the different posters they donâ€™t like.
A post by Nathan Steffel a few days ago proves that not everyone on Reddit is curmudgeonly. Steffel posted on the site asking for help:
My daughter recently passed away after a long battle in the children’s hospital. Since she was in the hospital her whole life we never were able to get a photo without all her tubes. Can someone remove the tubes from this photo?
Redditâ€™s Photoshop users came through. Some edited the photo to remove the tubes and others provided sketches. All of the pictures provided were beautiful.
Steffel himself was thrilled with the results:
This is really amazing. Everyone you have made my day. All I wanted was a nice picture. What I received was a lot of love and support from a bunch of strangers. A long with a lot of great photos, drawings and paintings. Thanks everyone!
If you haven’t given Reddit a try, you should. As it turns out, not everyone on there is a jerk.
