Workshop: Workshop on Human and Machine Decisions

Explainable Patterns for Distinction and Prediction of Moral Judgement on Reddit

Ion Stagkos Efstathiadis · Guilherme Paulino-Passos · Francesca Toni


The forum r/AmITheAsshole in Reddit hosts discussion on moral issues based on concrete narratives presented by users. Existing analysis of the forum focuses on its comments, and does not make the underlying data publicly available. In this paper we build a new dataset of comments and also investigate the classification of the posts in the forum. Further, we identify textual patterns associated with the provocation of moral judgement by posts, with the expression of moral stance in comments, and with the decisions of trained classifiers of posts and comments.
