Why is blind toxic and addictive?

Pretty annoying, it fills a need to vent and complain. Yet I spend time reading everything else.

    It's the anonymity that's addictive... It frees you from the politically correctness of everyday... Same with 4chan

      Honestly, I don't think it's that exactly. I run something sort of similar, but bigger, with stricter rules and a similar type of pseudonymity, though framed differently, and the same dynamic is at play. It's the intimate details, the things that are usually kept private, it creates a sense of voyeurism and communiality that basically hits all of our buttons as social creatures.

  • Just signed up today and this is way less interesting than other ppl made it out to be. Scrolled through lots of posts and the only one even mildly interesting was the boss crush one. Everyone just talks boring stuff that might as well be on Reddit. Is this really all the rage?

      It varies from week to week. This week is really low, give it a few more weeks before uninstalling.

      If you think Blind is all the rage, you were mislead. It’s mostly low grade shitposting in broken English.

      Funny, and you work in design. So I'll ask, what's the most influential design book you've read?

    Toxic?

    You sir must be still using an older version of this app. Upgrade, and notice how everyone here turns into a nice gentle fairy.

    Still annoyed by the amount of shit that gets banned. Too much censorship.

      It's for your own good. I kid, but not really. It's one of the calculations of community management. Lower levels of moderation tend to make people more inhibited and less likely to share personal info, which would be a problem for an app that depends on people being open and honest about personal info like salary. The other issue with low or no moderation is that it creates a dynamic that self-selects for the most toxic people, which suppresses participation and engagement until you just have the same ten trolls talking to each other. Which is a problem if your company is predicated on getting a large user base. You need it to have the biggest possible funnel.

    Same, probably due to anonymity allow for complete transparency, something everyone look for but have never came across.

    Because it seeing all the high salaries for people who do the same job that we all do makes us think we can get there.
