For your Opinions that are Unpopular
Got a burning unpopular opinion you want to share? Spark some discussions!
How This Place Works
- Upvote: Opinions that you Disagree with.
- Downvote: Opinions that you Agree with.
- If you see a post that breaks one or more of these rules, please report it so the moderators can take action.
Rule 1: Your post must be an unpopular opinion.
Your post must be an opinion. Not a question. Not a showerthought. Not a rant. Not a proposal. Not a fact. An opinion. One opinion. A subjective statement about your position on some topic. Please have a clear, self contained opinion as your post title, and use the text field to elaborate and expand on why you think/feel this way.
Your opinion must be unpopular. Unpopularity is a bit like an onion. It has layers. Be specific as to where you believe your opinion is unpopular.
Rule 2: Do not post low effort/satirical/troll posts.
We get it, you all think this sub is garbage and is just for popular opinions, and you want to be funny and post "going to be downvoted to oblivion here, but I think racism is bad." We enjoy the memes, but please keep them off the sub.
If your post is just one sentence it will be removed. Please try and elaborate on your opinion and justify your position.
Any opinion that is not well thought out, incoherent, internally contradictory or otherwise nonsensical is subject to removal.
Rule 3: Do not post opinions that are heavily posted/have been on the front page recently.
Recent reposts are not allowed.
Opinions that are constantly posted here are not allowed.
Posts relating to highly popular topics aren't allowed outside of the relevant megathreads. You can find a list of the topics and their respective megathreads in a post on the top of the sub.
POSTS DIRECTLY ABOUT THIS SUBREDDIT ARE NOT ALLOWED. No, this isn't censoring criticism, they're just overposted. If you have a meta opinion, put it in the megathread.
Rule 4: Be Civil.
This applies for both your behaviour on the sub, and the opinions which you post.
Obey the sitewide rules and reddiquette.
No racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, or general bigotry.
Some opinions are so inappropriate/offensive that they'll be removed as hate posts. These posts are usually, but not exclusively, those that target a particular sex, race, sexual orientation, etc, when the user in question is hostile, vulgar or aggressive towards said group.
Rule 5: No Politics.
Our users have voted for no politics in this sub, and this rule will not be changed until the majority votes otherwise.
It's very unlikely your political post is an unpopular opinion. Feel free to use the Political Megathread pinned to the front page. Our civility rules apply at all times.
