Reddit sucks

Pussycat Catnap

You know I have NO RESPECT for reddit due to their past shielding of a pedophile with the whole 'upskirt' scandal a few years back.

That's only gotten worse as I've watched their bias shape up in the politics group: where they now ban any liberal sources from being quoted.

Reddit is a cesspool, best avoided. Those are just two reasons, one can find many more.

You're actually mistaking individual user-run subreddits with Reddit as a whole. That's like blaming age play in Second Life on the whole SL community.

I seem to recall having this "reputation system" debate before. I have been vindicated again. I shall be insufferably smug for the next few hours.

@Hamlet: No I'm not. Policy Reddit set created those situations. As Reddit as a COMPANY backed and defended a pedophile who was one of their moderators posting upskirt nude images of underaged girls...

They as a company have now censored out non-conservative sources from their politics feeds.

These are two examples, more can be found. They put in place toxic moderators and toxic policies on a regular basis.

The company is poison.

Your own experience with the SL group should be warning you - and I have to wonder why it doesn't.

Its policies need to change, its heads need to roll.


They also censored conservative news sources..so it's balanced in that sense. You strike me, Pussycat, as someone who doesn't 'get' reddit anyway.

Hamlet Au

However, again, that confuses the non-company user moderators of a sub-reddit with Reddit the company.

"These are two examples, more can be found"

Do you have credible cites for either of those claims?
