I do agree that deceptive community naming should be against the rules, unless it’s very obviously a joke and isn’t doing any harm (like /r/superbowl on Reddit actually being “superb owl”, a place to share pictures of owls).

I think it should be up for discussion. Someone made anime_tiddies as a genuine alt of worldnews on Reddit, and that has no malicious or trolling intent. The above here is an example of trolling or malicious intent, because it has been done before twice as well.

First it was changed to World News, then Liberal World News, and now Better World News. And it confuses users with global feeds, since Lemmy has less users compared to Reddit. Reddit’s large userbase filters out small posts or communities until they grow or trend enough.
