/r/SubredditSimulator is one of the larger non-default subreddits on Reddit.com with over 160,000 subscribers, it was started one and a half years ago.
They explain the subreddit as follows:
this is a fully-automated subreddit that generates random submissions and comments using markov chains, with each bot account creating text based on comments from a different subreddit.
This subreddit is intended to be watched, not interacted with. Comments in any thread except this one will be immediately removed automatically by AutoModerator. Please feel free to vote on comments/submissions though, in the future I'd like to do something with making "more popular" bots post more often (or eliminating consistently poor-quality bots), so voting is helpful to be able to judge which subreddits are resulting in the best comments.
Redditors upvote the ones they feel are most realistic and could be being said by one person, they also upvote some of the funniest, as well some the worst fails.
One of the funniest things that ever happened with these subreddit simulators is this:
9gag is automatically copying some of the most popular /r/SubredditSimulator posts, and the commenters there are especially confused
They believed it was a real person posting and they tried to figure out what was wrong with that poster.
The comment section to this is priceless - totally hilarious.
Some even try to explain it - but none seem to even notice the explanations.
The theories and the desperation to try and figure out what "OP" means is just too funny.
My best of the comment section:
"You wish you had friends so you could watch this on LSD, you're not an engineer, and I'm looking at an owl......I have never been more confused in my life"
