If you often find yourself in the middle of a flaming desire to rage against the machine and respect for authority, don't worry. There's nothing wrong with you. Duality is an integral part of human nature. There are more hooligans like you. And they meet on the subreddit r/MildlyVandalised to share their public opinion.

The online community calls itself a place to share street art pictures and videos (or whatever) of mild vandalism that is either funny, mindful or thought-provoking (or whatever). Such a beautiful description, isn't it? Plain and simple, not at all prolix.

From rewriting Wikipedia pages to "modifying" public signs and other unique artworks, continue scrolling and check out what this nexus between conformity and rebellion has to offer!

"Vandalism to me is basically anger,” Dr. Jeffery Chase, a licensed clinical psychologist and psychology professor at Radford University in Radford, Va., said. "It can be displacement — displacement in the technical sense is that [vandals] wish to do something against a more threatening object or individual, so they vent their anger on something safer."

Most of us petty that. Mild vandalism, on the other hand, clearly isn't fueled by anger. I would say the main force that drives it is creativity. And even if some of these acts are directed against someone, they aren't executed with the intention to ridicule or hurt the addressee. Rather, to tease them. The fact that mild vandalism is innocent, I think, is the appeal of it. It's what draws those hundreds of thousands of people to join the Reddit community. Mild vandalism is connecting people instead of dividing them, and it's awesome.

That's actually cute, I would never paint over it.

One of the moderators of the subreddit, DoxBox, also shares this opinion. "Mild vandalism is vandalism that is humorous but not overly damaging," they told Bored Panda. "Regular vandalism is costly to fix and malicious in intent. The sub is about mostly-harmless but humorous vandalism intended to make people laugh."

His colleague, fellow moderator awesomesprime, pointed out that important urgent matters get represented in the subreddit, too. Like, the presidential election. "Recently, political posts have been at the top, but [they still] have to be funny and clever. Those seem to be the ones that make it the highest," they said.

"Posts do well the funnier they are, with the caveat that Reddit's usual issues do sometimes interfere. Posting the same post at different times can have different results," DoxBox added, explaining the main differences on why some pics go viral and some don't.

Ooh ~ this one is timely for me. My guy, with a pretty healthy lifestyle, was told he has very high cholesterol by his dr. Apparently 75% of cholesterol numbers are genetics. If I didn't bug his A** to get a flu shot & a check up...who knows?

As for Dove - they might until they decide they don't want to buy products from companies that still test on animals just to be able to sell to the Chinese market where animal testing is apparently required...
