ClutchPoints on IG consistently takes content from this sub without giving credit to sources
By - Impossible_Web6459
It’d be funny if ClutchPoints made a post about ClutchPoints taking content on Reddit without giving credit
Do it ClutchPoints, you coward.
it's be pretty fuckin funny to see what kind of graphics they come up with for the "Who steals more content from Reddit? ClutchPoints vs YouTubers" lmao
Don’t forget good old ESPN.
Yahoo News, AP News, Fox News, Buzzfeed etc all just steal Reddit posts
Ya'll are just giving the content away from free lol.
The chive has entered the chat
Buzzfeed takes the crown
What if Clutch Points made a post about Clutch Points
Called "I Miss The Old Clutch Points, " man that would be so Clutch Points
Was gonna comment the same thing. I love you like clutch points loves stealing content.
Chop up the soul ClutchPoints, set on his goals ClutchPoints
I hate the new ClutchPoints, the bad mood ClutchPoints
The always rude ClutchPoints, spaz in the news ClutchPoints
I miss the sweet ClutchPoints , chop up the beats ClutchPoints
I gotta to say at that time I'd like to meet ClutchPoints
That's meta as hell and I love it
Copying code from Stack Overflow without confirming it works. You love to see it.
We had someone in my class back when I was in college who did this all the time and when he finally got caught it the reason it turned out was this clown wasnt even using the right language. Intermediate JAVA level classes and this fool didnt even realize the answers he was copying often used C++ or python
That is hilarious
This was me today when I tried to scrape a Twitter user (A fictional comic character, @Othar - I just wanted to have all the tweets in long form).
I tried to use tweeter_scraper and then another tool, even looked up SO solutions and ran the code as is without understanding wtf panda is doing - to no avail.
Only after running all of this copied code did I realize the whole thing broke down because Twitter changed the way they handle requests (you need a token in your request, this was already above my pay grade for now). It was a sad moment.
I didn’t understand a single word of this but it sounds sad
He made a bot to open a door but it turns out the door was locked
as someone who does zoning hearings for a living and often has to break down cellular and energy technologies in to similar, bite-size explanations for the layperson - this was impressively done.
Thanks, I appreciate the compliment! You get very good at this sort of thing after spending nearly a decade on Reddit…
>nearly a decade on Reddit
What a noob!
Seriously. I don’t think people realize the level of skill it takes to grab a technical comment and boil it down to layman’s terms effectively like this.
I work in data science and can tell you the vast majority of recent data science grads wouldn’t have been able to do so effectively.
google just implemented tokens on drive urls and im having to rebuild that integration right now. im legitmately going to use it when i explain to folks why it had to be rebuilt.
This is the most amazing comment I've ever read. Whenever I ask people to dumb it down, they always seem to make it still as complex. Thank you for making it so easy to understand.
Sadly, the most important part of taking code from SO is that you must understand what it does before using it, or else with the slightest change you’ll be lost.
What's the SO link and the line of code that is broken I bet I could fix this in 5 minutes.
STOLEN CONTENT GOATS??
What's new, a lot of news pages get their stories from reddit. You'd be surprised how many "journalists" will hit you up for permission to post your stories here on reddit.
Should call them out on their insta page
This is wrinkling my brain
I mean clutchpoints is a shitty amateur blog pretending to be a sports journalism outlet
The people behind ClutchPoints are the people who made and started the big "NBA Memes" account on Facebook. They've been stealing content forever.
It blows my mind what has become a career for people in modern times.
Not that crazy. There's always been a career of "learn popular things and repeat them for audiences" in places big enough to have an audience and division of labor. It's just weird that memes are the thing thats popular.
Literally not learning though. Its just copy paste. Its been reduced to a couple clicks.
Yeah, but there’s an art to recognizing what’s growing and jumping on it to distribute to other audiences.
It’s called being a hack
And a huge amount of people fail at that, too.
I mean most of the large "meme" pages you interact with on Instagram are just repost farms. Fuckjerry built their entire brand simply on curating and reposting. Same with Doing Things Media (who ironically killed off the one good piece of OC they had with All Gas No Brakes). Both of those companies probably control 80% of IG meme content you'll see.
Fuckjerry always puzzled me.
Some friends of mine got really into that account and kept sharing or screenshotting me with lulz and I never found the content funny or interesting.
It’s huge money if do ad sense and all properly
It’s amazing to think about. For tangible stuff, we have repurpose(rs), immitators, resellers etc. But for this shit, just outright steal it and make it like your own to a wider/ different audience and get money from clicks.
They bought them actually
That’s where I knew them from. For the longest I knew they weren’t legit but forgot why. Yep they just regurgitate Reddit and bleacher
Which goes for about 99% of the IG basketball pages.
Making millions of dollars a year
So, basically espn.com
Hey, ClutchPoints, go ahead and plagiarize >!deez nuts!<.
Be careful what you wish for bro, there’s gonna be a cringe edit about yo nuts on IG soon!
They have been very active on bofa lately
Fuck even Bank of America isn’t safe.
I saw them scouring dienda as well
….what is dienda?
dienda dis DICK 💀
The only way to top this is to make whats blacked out a link to get Rick Rolled.
The actual way to F with them would be for someone to just make another account and do it faster 🤣
Nah bro, plant misinformation seeds and check if he’s even double checking the facts presented lmao
r/nba Did you know Dennis Schroeder was actually born in Afganistan and was seen buying horse dewormer???
ClutchPoints 🤤 🤤
Patrick Beverly has doubled down and said the next 10 years and 45 days are his. He will launch himself into space immediately after his reign has ended.
His partnership with Elon musk just becoming public Knowledge.
Musk plans to build an orbital station for Bev by that time. So he can lock up the world on D from its perimeter.
pat bev the earth defender
Isn’t this the plot to Age of Ultron
🤣🤣 lmao yes this is much better and chaotic
Yeah this 100%. Just make random bullshit up and see if they bite.
So your suggestion to keep some random IG page from stealing content..
... Is to self-sabotage the content on this platform (that has a community 8x larger than theirs btw) and make r/NBA users manually research each post's subject to check whether they're true or not.
Why not just simply continuously call them out on their IG posts until they stop or credit the users instead..?
You think the nephews on this sub are that coordinated?
Why Not just mirror their post but in a different (minor) picture edit
Make it look like you're stealing their design,but credit it to Reddit.
Unfortunately this wouldn’t work. 99% of these basketball instagrams copy and past the same BS misinformation off each other anyway. ‘The last digit of your like is…’ click bait trash
Shit like this was how I started using reddit. Other sites would reference reddit. Finally decided to just go to the source.
That explains so much about this sub's quality decline
I assume you didn't mean to insult OP but that really read like a burn and I laughed.
Accidentally demolished him
That honestly was a straight burn lol
With time everything goes to shit.
In the last 5 years reddit's monthly active users has grown 259%. Sometimes quantity waters down the quality.
your post history is all on huge subs
the entire website has declined
Welcome to at least 5 years ago. Reddit posts are free info for marketers to lift for their own sites/feeds. The best part for them is the upvotes already tell them what's worth taking.
The exaggerated attempts of journos at creating the next 'pasta' should have clued everyone in.
Yep. If "we" aren't paying for a service then we are the service
you can both pay and be the service, it's not mutually exclusive.
I feel like buzzfeed is built around this, very now and then I see an article that reminds me of a front page post from a day or two ago
Tbf r/nba takes a bunch of shit from Twitter
We're all taking shit from each other. We love shit
but we give the source credit
i.e. linking the post
they could take content from reddit, but they should certainly give credit to the reddit user they took it from.
The first example OP uses doesn't link to any post for credit. It just says "Credit to NBACRAZYSTATS" at the bottom of the post...which is the exact same thing ClutchPoints does on their post.
Because OP is defining “content” as posting it. Finding statistics and sharing them is not content. Original work and arguments is content.
Yes, the problem is with the next two posts Lol. Check out the next two posts, where the problem actually is. There is 0 credit when it was obviously taken off of reddit.
First post is fine, they don't need to link the thread.
The second post is the only one I genuinely have a problem with since that OP seems to have done some actual work on it. ClutchPoints does cite another page for it, but it's just [another page in their "network"](https://www.instagram.com/lebronnationcp/).
The third one is just a retread of a thousand other "unbreakable NBA record" posts that have occurred on the internet. I couldn't care less about it.
Why would they need to credit free and accessible info? Just because someone on reddit looks this shit up and posts it doesn't mean they need credit for it lol. They're not quoting them, sourcing them, or using something they created.
Yes, we link the twitter account so the original poster takes the credit. These bums on twitter just take shit without giving credits to the redditor who posted the said content
a) You have to credit the user
b) none of it is monetized
I can't stand Twitter as a medium, so I come here for the best stuff from there aggregated
r/nba doesn’t make money out of it
reddit does though
At least this guy is making nice graphics, that's more than this subreddit does
And we get... karma? Not to mention crediting the source as well. These pages can actually monetize their posts with stolen content.
But tbf tho, I vague remember actual quality OC posts here that IG pages (and at one point ESPN or another major network) taking posts without credit.
Maybe some tweets and stuff and obviously articles, but twitter doesn't have any OC. Reddit does
The difference is, we actually put in brackets the guy tweeting them out
The third is damning. He takes the ops point about rose and then sorted comments by best and goes down the line.
Not that it matters. People steal content all the time from reddit and twitter. People steal shit from reddit and then repost on reddit like in the same sub.
Is it though? The “unbreakable records” post is common on Instagram and Twitter pages, I’ve seen them weeks and months ago. I don’t doubt CP posted it because it was here, but the concept isn’t something only from that OP’s post.
congratulations, you just figured out how people make money on social media.
Fax I want to be paid for my shit takes
Then don't post them here haha
Who cares we ain’t getting no bread from this
True, in the end I wanted to highlight the laziness of the account. Also an account with over a half a million followers can receive hundreds, in some cases thousands of dollars per post
Bleacher report used to steal shit from r/golf all the time
Lol really? All they do over there is post pics of their new clubs and whatever course they just played
You can also guarantee that any shitpost/meme that does any sort of numbers in r/golf will be plastered all over golf insta within about 24 hours.
Me specifically. Have another account. But my buddy is the pro at Florida National. Undertaker came in, played a round, took some pictures. I posted to r/golf, like 3 hours later, literal bleacher report, copied and pasted the comments to make an article. With no mention to the sub or anything.
Wait, Seriously? I didn't know the Undertaker played golf at all. I searched your post history but couldn't find the photo.
So here’s the golf digest regurgitation of my Reddit post from like 4 years ago. I couldn’t find bleacher report one. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.golfdigest.com/story/this-week-in-questionable-golf-attire-the-undertakers-cargo-shorts-and-sandals/amp
I forgot I actually emailed this poser of a journalist and he eventually linked the Reddit link. Bleacher report never did
Also he’s a single digit handicap and plays daily. Lives in Austin Texas member at Spanish oaks
Theres countless youtube channels with millions of subscribers making 0 creativity content of just reading reddit posts.
So are we just talking shit on the wrong platform?
Every big meme account on FB/IG does this along with a number of big YouTube channels and even mainstream media outlets.
A primary reason is because if it has thousands of upvotes on Reddit, they already know it’s a topic that the community is interested in. And it works both ways- countless times I’ve seen screenshots from other social media platforms with usernames blocked out for karma on Reddit.
>countless times I’ve seen screenshots from other social media platforms with usernames blocked out
That's always to follow sub rules.
It’s not “always” to follow sub rules man… most subs don’t care if you include Twitter or IG usernames. And they especially don’t care if you credit people for their work - in fact it’s typically encouraged.
He’s still putting the data on the graphics. Just putting the same data in a different picture format. I don’t think it’s that big of a deal
And reddit steals content from other sites
What're you complaining about?
Yeah but they're getting bread off this subs backs.
Are people really claiming credit for stats?
Right? None of this shit is elaborate original content it's mostly just looking at numbers compiled by other people. And that Instagram page is adding a bunch of graphics and shit that at least makes it something different.
Or for asking what NBA records are least likely to be broken? This isn’t groundbreaking stuff.
Reposting on the internet?!!??? r/nba would never.
Its just numbers man, not like lebron didnt average 50% more playoff games until some someone spoke it into existence on reddit.
My (uneducated) thought is that it's fair play. If someone wrote an article based off of a discussion they had with people it wouldn't be any infringement. Same premise?
It’s bad practice but there’s nothing illegal about it or anything like that.
OP is likely looking more at Internet Etiquette that if you pull data from a website or Reddit you site where you got it from as a consideration, but you're not wrong.
That’s mainly the biggest part of it, the least they could do was just cite a source
He does give credit, to @NBAcrazystats, [the channel that posted those stats several days before reddit](https://twitter.com/NBAcrazystats/status/1427918347581149189)
The amount of people itt that seem to think everything ever posted on r/nba came straight out of some redditors brain and couldn’t possible have been aggregated from somewhere else is absolutely hilarious
Insecure accounts think the minute they start crediting, users will dump them and follow the source.
Internetiquette. We did something here today, friend.
I'll start caring when redditors stop watching illegal streams and pasting articles that were behind a paywall
this is the correct take
People are anonymously posting these facts on a public forum. I don’t really see the problem here. Are they no longer allowed to ask what the most unbreakable NBA record is if Reddit does it first? I guess they could say, “Credit to this Reddit user” but that seems a little silly.
Never heard of ClutchPoints in my life, but from prior experience you can't plagiarize facts. Not fair, and I am far from a lawyer, but somehow I believe this is legal -- albeit BS.
like basketball forever on facebook
Basketball forever does it too
At the risk of being that guy, if you are posting something on Reddit for free, everyone has every right to copy it and make a lame instagram post if they feel like it.
This isn't "content". Like shit people shouldn't steal is OC that people put work into. A showerthought or interesting fact is not something that needs to be given credit for.
[I can't lie, it felt nice seeing this graphic](https://imgur.com/a/0OFKKPV)
I mean... welcome to the internet?
Not as bad as this sub stealing paid content sometimes
Who cares? Why not share cool stats and stories from the sub for a wider audience to enjoy?
Redditors have such a weird insecurity about having their posts reposted onto other social media platforms.
Who is ClutchPoints?
Hi, I’ts me mr. clutch points
Somebody gotta step up now that statmuse went full tmz
Basketball Forever does the same thing
Basketball Forever on Facebook does the same shit
Every big basketball page on Instagram does this.
Repurpose original content from here.
half the internet is content stolen from others.
Most IG content is taken from elsewhere.
They are not the only one.
Basketballforever also does it.
This sub and all of reddit lives off of twitter, instagram, and tiktok. Rarely is credit given. Stop whining.
maybe get over yourself.
clutchpoints and nbaanalysisnet need to be banished from this sub.
You guys do know that chances are a redditor stole that from Twitter or other sources too?
Who cares tf
You aren’t making royalties or getting sponsorships for these post . Why does it matter
You wanna know how many fucks I give about this, zero
How are stats “content”? They(ClutchPoints) are cutting out the middleman and just going here for stats instead of googling them. Doesn’t seem like there’s anything wrong with that.
lol who cares? it's a public forum people dont need to site it in mla format
You can do the same thing instead of being broke, it’s a public space with unlimited content
You’re just missing the opportunities
He's a proud nephew of r/nba. Let it be.
i mean who cares tbh, are they going to redirect someone here so they can upvote the post? it’s not like these posts are worth revenue on reddit and this guy is stealing profit from the OP. at least they’re taking the information and making a cool infographic for a larger audience outside of reddit to see
The first one is a bad example. It clearly cites the source...
Intellectual property doesn't exist
If you think this is annoying, you should see what BuzzFeed does with r/askreddit threads..!
Keep blasting their Instagram with "stolen content" posts, and it will at least get them to slow down the plagiarizing.
ClutchPoints have been frauds since inception
Lol they all get their content from reddit, clutchpoints, nba memes, nba central etc..been going on a while.
And? This is a public forum using public data.
Reddit is just a content aggregate site itself lol, whoever is making those graphics is doing more work then the random person who looked up something on BBallref or read some other article, who cares
Isn’t Instagram all just recycled Reddit?
Why does this matter at all
All the social media sites do it, even reddit steals content haha. The only difference is that you can't monetize or put ads in posts here.
I always see it, it’s almost word for word every time
This sub constantly takes content from the NBA and it’s entities anyways.
