^^^ this so much, everyday everyone in topics thinking the financial world, housing, and their relationship is all going to crash. Working for FANG or tech or high tc doesn't make you smarter than anyone else.
Isn’t what you just said cesspool already? Plus tons of trolling, ignorant, hateful top comments, and nudity, bot top comments flying in almost every popular public account. If you ever make your account public you will get more of less these things too.
Reddit, on average, is the least toxic place on the Internet. Sure, there are toxic subreddits. But they’re contained and you know what you’re getting into when you go to them. Everywhere else, the ability to downvote trolls + heavy moderation remove incentives to troll.
Quora isn’t toxic, it just attracts people who like to hear themselves talk.
HN is heavily moderated. Instead of banning you, they downvote you like reddit. They also don’t allow you to edit your post and ask “why” because that’s apparently a dumb thing to do. I rather see Blind trolls than a bunch of people pretending they are civilized.
Disclaimer: I have a lot a lot of points on HN but I no longer participate there.
