Then I excluded history subreddits and looked at the probability that a Reddit thread mentions Nazis or Hitler at least once. Unsuprisigly, the probability of a Nazi refrence increases as the threads get bigger. Nevertheless, I didn’t expect that the probability would be over 70% for a thread with more than 1,000 comments.


I'm not a fan of Reddit at all. But this is less an indicator of how fall Reddit has fallen and more a confirmation that Goodwin's Law is a real thing.
