Guy on Slack creates a subreddit named after a popular tech community group. Guy isn't admin of the said community. Didn't bother to ask permission from the admins to use the community name. Didn't even care to poll people if they want a subreddit. In fact he is in danger of getting kicked out by the admin for being a know-it all attention seeker, and for reasons I don't know why.

No one cares, people question him why a subreddit is necessary. Only three out of 3000 people join. Subreddit is deserted.

He then gets reality callout from a member who then tells him flatly that nobody is interested in his subreddit. Then he goes on Facebook whining how everyone is bullying him lmao.

Yeah do more stupid shit like that and you'll get called out every time. Please stop playing the victim.

    There is no issue with creating a subreddit without permission. Heck most subreddits of external things start out as fan reddits.

    If that is the sole reason for being called out an attention seeker and being called out on I am more tempted to side with that person.

    I probably don't know the whole story and unless you post it here there is not much to say about it besides assumptions. You are just as shitty as the person doing the callouts.

    @Codex404 but then there is an issue. Admins do not like it when you create online groups or forums of any kind named after theirs without their permission. Idk with other countries but in the Philippines that's considered bad manners

    @jennytengsonM I could make a devRant subreddit without issues. This is not bad manners at all. If people join that's fine. If they don't that's fine too. Just state it's unofficial
