Knew about this Reddit protest going on but didn't not realize the size & scope of the issue. As I see it, if this stands, this could/should be the end for Redd
Again, irrelevant to the question, but I'm glad you were able to get that off your chest.Reddit is garbage. Getting banned was the best thing that’s happened to me
I've found solutions to things at redit over the past few years at times when no other forums had them. So yeah even tho it has its issues with keyboard warriors it's also a great source of information as well.
Hopefully they'll get things resolved and it doesn't go the way of photobucket.
Same. I've found many an actual answer - once one blew past the oftentimes-thick layer of SEO scum from hucksters, charlatans, related-but-irrelevant, mindless copypasta of related-but-wrong solutions that had become self-perpetrating memes - often as not on Reddit from a thread 5-10 years ago.I've found solutions to things at redit over the past few years at times when no other forums had them.
I think that's something almost every platform of size that takes submissions from the great unwashed has to contend with.So yeah even tho it has its issues with keyboard warriors it's also a great source of information as well.
I never had a Reddit account. The upvote shenanigans reminded me of slashdot which I always found annoying to read. So I'd encounter it from the outside - or via websites that interacted with it via API - but otherwise wasn't a real user of it. The latest algorithmic feeds have made it insufferable whenever I've had to go past the initial pageload from a search engine or external link.I've found it a chore, but as with many things, have also found some good in it here and there; but definitely NOT in the flashlight section. That is located somewhere between juvenile and adolescent (a place I once spent some time but don't care to return to), and is dead to me.
