For a post to be considered OrphanCrushingMachine, it must depict a story being presented as wholesome, but is really a symptom of underlying systemic issues.
In short, in an OCM post, the people are saying,"Yay this problem is solved!" instead of asking, "Why was this a problem in the first place?"
Please note "Interesting" or "Satisfying" do not necessarily mean wholesome.
Disagreements are completely expected in a subreddit discussing systemic issues, but they must be conducted in a civil and respectful manner. Avoid slurs, offensive insults and personal attacks.
Posts discussing the mods, rules or the subreddit itself are allowed, but please use the "Meta" flair in such cases.
Do not come here solely to promote your own content.
If you mention something you created (a blog, another post, ect.) and it's relevant to the discussion, it's no big deal. However if you're just self-advertising for the sake of it, that's a problem.
This subreddit WILL NOT tolerate bigotry or hatred.
Racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, or any other type of bigotry is strictly forbidden.
Violating this rule can and will result in a ban, possibly permanent.
