    I'm not sure why, but the one next to the smurf makes me very uncomfortable.

    Edit: They're all like that! Ewww....makes me think of trypophobia :sick:

    I hike a lot. Probably about 40-60 miles a week. I've passed this things up so many times it isn't funny, hordes of them, lol. My mom always says I'm crazy.

    They are very tasty, especially compared to what they have at most stores. That is, of course, assuming one likes mushrooms.

    I like morels! I just forget they are there lol. I record my hikes for YouTube and other social media and I focus too much on video activities, taking photos and focusing on the "scenes" that my audience wants to see - big bluffs, rock formations and SNAKES :D I bet if I did a mushroom video though, it could be a hit! Hmmm.

    Post a link to it on Reddit and it's sure to get a attention!

    Probably not the best attention though right? LOL.
    I've only ever posted to Reddit once. A creepypasta I wrote. That pasta did get featured on YouTube by a narrator. It was a one hit wonder though as I don't write them that often :p

    Seen a few snakes while, they're sun bathing :)

    I'm sure you'd get some hits on videoing a mushroom hunt. :D

    I gave up on Reddit and deleted all my posts along with the account. Its a toxic community in my opinion.

    - People getting slammed for sharing an opinion that isn't politically correct.
    - People gleefully putting others down,
    - Any diversity of opinion is not welcome in a great many subreddits.
    - Double standards (for instance, one group for a racial minority constantly posts racist things and if someone objects they are virtually tarred and feathered).
    - The worst types of trolls exist there, people who seem to take joy in being an arsehole to others.
    - Seemed most topics people shared about good things in their life and positive accomplishments, there is at least one person in the topic looking to kick them down.
    - Mods who delete posts not for violations but rather because they don't agree with them.
    - People who thrive on "look at me" self-important circle jerks.
    - Shallow discussion is the norm with in-depth posts being the exception.

    Now, having said that, their audience is huge, and if done properly and ethically by actually contributing to a subreddit rather than all self-promotion to get people to your site, an occasional link drop when its beneficial to the audience can bring a great deal of traffic. But you might have to monitor users from Reddit a bit more than others. I've had people join a forum who came from Reddit who had obvious mental problems, there to promote an MLM or other scammy schemes, and outright jerks.
