Small Town Security: YAFTOR

I.e., "yet another fucktard on reddit."

Anyone can make a subreddit, and for any reason.  'Tis the open 'net after all, and I err on the side of supporting Internet freedom, but squatting sucks, and in the end, squatting laws make sense, mostly.

tl;dr: fuckers will "squat" a subreddit name, for purposes of trolling.  To this let us now meme:

I in no way want to be seen as some supporter of the show, Small Town Security.  I do find it fascinating -- sorta the way a train wreck is fascinating .. as long as you're not in it!

But I put this write-up in and it was getting upvotes:

The show is asking for it:

..It is asking to be jeered at, put down, ridiculed and mocked, but only from those who have not looked beyond the thin veil of a reality tv show. On that level it is among the worst. If the producers continue to script laugh scenes where old men are tricked into thinking they peed (whether scripted or not, it appeared to be) then the show will be seeing its final season. If, however, they continue to peel-back the layers of these characters -- these real people -- I will continue to watch and be amazed.

We find in STC individuals at the end of their ... not lives, but dreams. A former survivalist and militia member, come back to society, a former starlet with 'connections'. An educated businessman, always trying to provide with hoarding and 'other' issues. And, yes, between these three, a current love-triangle of uncommon nature.

And from these histories, these stories, we have their current situation, delve into their bad habits, things that are so awkward that we cannot believe it isn't scripted, but it can't be.

In the middle of all of this we sense longings: one has struggled for years with their gender, one with her marriage, one with his desire for normalcy that he denied himself via marital choice and abnormal vices.
And these people are not young. They are older. Opportunities are running out and health is beginning to deny chances to change.

What will happen if/when she dies? Who will have to leave their business? Will she break-it off with one of her relationships to save the other?

This same primal story could make for any great Hollywood romance, but Hollywood could never create a Mayberry with a transsexual, a businessman and a one-time starlet.

No, reality is stranger than fiction, and that is Small Town Security.

And again, it was getting upvotes .. until -- mods deleted it.

Why?  Well, when I peruse that subreddit, I see just about all negativity about the show, its members, etc.

Can it be the mod(s) just wants this subreddit to be an attack, a put down, a pejorative diatribe against this show? (Did he just say "pejorative diatribe?")  In the least, I do not feel that subreddit is objective in light of the few posts there, and the deletion of my post above.  ffs, there are only 3 posts there and none new in months -- attack of the mods!
