reddit?

Post by fschmidt » October 20th, 2015, 10:57 am

Could someone please explain to me what is the appeal of reddit? The design seems horrible to me. When you respond to a thread, it doesn't move to the top, so why even bother responding? The UI sucks. So why do people use this site?

I don't know why they use it. I certainly don't. All I know is, it is hugely popular for some weird reason which is why I would suggest you to give it a try, if recruiting men for your co-alpha society is still something you are interested in. Even in a sea of shit you should still be able to find a few pearls worth keeping.

Reddit's only appeal is it's popularity.

I think it is because Reddit is operating almost without moderation, without editing and deleting.

Most men are angry as many of their non-PC comments are plainly erased by some bigot-forum-moderator.

Often pro-feminist websites complain about Reddit considering parts of it as hate-speech etc. etc.

It looks to me like each forum (subreddit) has moderators, so I don't see why the moderation would be any different from any other forum.

I was actually looking at reddit for business reasons, not for recruiting.

The only explanation I have for the success of reddit is that it is designed to prevent substance and quality, both of which members of modern culture are allergic to. This seems to be the pattern for all successful content sites. All are pure crap. Any hint of substance or quality would drive users away. This applies equally to the Left and Right, to feminists, MGTOW, or any other group in modern culture.

There's some great stuff on reddit. I'm not sure about using it for HA related niches, but there's some good IT stuff on there sometimes.

I used to be a great fan of 4chan for a while, that's fairly similar(ish).

Both sites have such big readerships it's kind of fun to read a thread and realise one of the posters lives a few streets away from you.
