Home to all things "Mildly Infuriating" Not infuriating, not enraging. Mildly Infuriating. All posts should reflect that.

I know its easier than ever to dunk on how terrible reddit has gotten, but honestly? What is this? How is is safer to deliver this content to kids viewing reddit on a tablet or PC or in the app? Why even create the bs excuse?

They could just have easily told the truth an displayed a message like "Content is limited. Open in the app to view." It's still a jerk move, but at a minimum its honest.

You think that's bad? They have four of these "promo" dialogs to push users to the Reddit ~~spyware~~ app.

  1. Unreviewed community (the one you're seeing).
  2. NSFW content.
  3. Trending content (yes, you read that right).
  4. Special events (like r/place).

Fuck Spez.

Also just getting a bottom banner asking if you want to use the app. I only ever get there from searches so, no I don't want the app. One of the only websites deliberately making their mobile site unusable to push an app.

Ublock gets rid of the banner asking you to switch....it doesn't fix all the other bullshit though.

Weird. I have unlock origin on Firefox Android and I will get the pop-up for See this post in...

[–] Breadhax0r 6 points 2 months ago (1 children)

If I recall, I had to go into uBlocks settings and enable Easylist- annoyances > chat widgets an Adguard -annoyances >mobile app banners, widgets

I haven't had any issues myself, but I've seen some stuff online saying reddit has been rather aggressive with trying to fight blockers

Aha, that worked perfectly! Thank you very much!

I'm trans and have surgery coming up so I'm often trying to research a lot of stuff related to that. Seems half the useful info out there is on Reddit and I have to get around the fucking NSFW wall all the time. I'm so frustrated that so much of that information got tied up there and in discord channels

While it still works, you can use old.reddit.com to get around those walls.

You can also set your browser to desktop mode. For some reason viewing things from a "desktop" is okay, but God forbid you view it from your phone.

You forgot one: "Can we see some ID?"
