'Cursed Comments' is one of those niche subreddits that have become an integral part of internet culture. Even though the community is relatively young even by online standards, it has already attracted over 3 million members and has been featured in various media outlets. (Bored Panda has also covered it here, here, and here.)

It's difficult to pinpoint what a cursed comment actually is. There are just too many forms it can appear in. According to the subreddit's 'About' section, however, the best way of defining it is probably a statement that gets you to think along the lines of "What the f$k did I just read?" and leaves you speechless while also somehow makes sense.

But the best part is that the incomprehension of the comment you just read (or the blatant gruesomeness of it) is also enough to draw a smile on your face.

Pewdiepie said 'Cursed Comments' is the worst subreddit. But is it really? Can it simultaneously be the best one too? In a couple of days, on April 10th, the community will celebrate its 4th birthday, so we decided it's the perfect time to revisit it and show you some of its recent top posts.

We managed to get in touch with the moderators of 'Cursed Comments' and one of them agreed to tell us more about the inner workings of their subreddit.

"I think people like it because all throughout the internet, you run across some odd images or videos, and this content may provoke thoughts that you wouldn’t dare say—but someone else did say it," the mod told Bored Panda.

"It's one giant vault of the internet's best (worst?) cursed comments."

The person looking after the sub said the community is "a group of people who find amusement in seeing the wild and unspoken comments out in the vast depths of the internet that would probably go unnoticed and ignored" if it didn't exist.

They're the heroes we didn't know we need. Many of the gems you see in this list have gotten only a handful of likes on the platforms they were originally posted on and most likely would have perished if it wasn't for these folks.

"They aren't always the most sensible comments, but they are interesting nonetheless."

There should be at least one random non-athlete in each event, just to shut up everyone at home yelling at the tv that they’d be so much better at it.

"Over the course of our history as a subreddit, we grew naturally for a long time and became a rather large community [on our own, but] then PewDiePie made his first video [about us], and we exploded in popularity," the mod recalled.

"It's been an amazing journey watching and helping grow a community like this, and having one of the largest YouTubers in the world make videos on it is pretty incredible."

But more members also mean more problems. "It's become more difficult to moderate a sub of such scale, and we deal with a lot of mod harassment/abuse, people who want to disrupt the flow of things and make our lives harder."

"Often, the people who decide to verbally abuse us are just angry because we removed their post/comment or banned them," the mod explained.

"We once even had a user who manually DMed every single moderator of our team individually with a message purely consisting of the n-word and no more."

The moderator said that every Reddit community has at least a few bad apples, but "due to the nature of our subreddit, it tends to be worse than some others."

For better or worse, the internet has become the last place where you can make such comments as few risk saying these things to people in public.

Even before the infamous incident between Will Smith and Chris Rock at the Oscars, the most dangerous thing that a comedian has to face today is offending political correctness.

Last year, Jennifer Saunders' take on the matter made headlines in the likes of Mail Online (“Jennifer Saunders says Absolutely Fabulous wouldn't be commissioned today in Britain's 'woke' culture").

The closest Saunders had come to saying that was the vague assertion that people "talk themselves out of stuff now because everything is sensitive."

But in the past, she was more direct. "People are so politically correct now," she said in 2017. "You can’t even get away [with playing] a politically incorrect character, because that is seen as being politically incorrect."

"Everyone's down on everyone for everything."

Comedy gives us a break from everyday challenges. So if cursed comments help you to escape existential dread, who cares if you're laughing at them or not?

They're just someone's random thoughts that escaped through their fingers into the ocean of the internet without any harmful intentions. (At least I hope so.)
