You open what looks like a bill, but it's just junk mail. You click through a donation process too fast, and they turn your one-time donation into a monthly contribution. A snack's packaging makes it look bigger; an opinion poll is obviously one-sided; when you copy-paste a line from an article, the site adds a "read more" link for your "convenience." Don't express your impotent rage alone. Take it to Reddit's /r/assholedesign, a place to expose and discuss evil design tricks.
Tagged With subreddit
Away from the Trump supporter spam and creepy fake celebrity porn, Reddit is still home to uplifting conversations, useful information and weird-arse videos. The key is, and always has been, subscribing to the right subreddits. The Lifehacker team shares our favourites below.
As much as people make fun of the internet for being a place to put your most boring thoughts, there's actually such tough competition for attention that if you want any reaction, you have to be super interesting. Even the famous subreddit /r/mildlyinteresting is full of fascinating stuff such as a panicked vending machine, surprise twinsies and a nine-fingered pianist. Your boring-arse story doesn't register. Unless you go to /r/benignexistence.
