Vids I Dig 308: Whang!: The Resurrection of r/CursedImages – Tales From the Internet

Taken from Justin Whang’s YouTube description: After the cursed images tumblr and the cursed images Twitter, r/cursedimages became reddit’s top destination for all cursed images. But what is a cursed image? Confusion and debate over this topic, especially among newer users as the subreddit grew more popular, drove r/cursedimages into an existential crisis that affects many niche subreddits that get very large. Heavier moderation was needed to save the sub.

However, absentee moderators made it very difficult for users to pull the place back together despite the community’s efforts. Would the community be able to get r/cursedimages back on track?
