I just browse the subs to keep up with the ever-changing memes. It's harder to get a handle on interwebz humor once you're well into your 30's. I just hate the picture links to that awful imgur site. It loads soooo slowly.

Also reddit is good at gauging the "herd" mentality of 20-something kiddies. Like just the other day they went full-on Eff the Police, NWA-style, about that C-star black actress who was caught sexing it with her white trashy bf in a car in broad daylight, and then had the gall to walk away from officers when confronted about the complaints from neighbors. Now that pix were released with the 2 going at it with the freakin car door wide OPEN, the kiddies on Reddit have changed their tuned. LOL

I don't really care for it, mostly because over on YouTube comments, you will always see some moron spouting that they are a reddit moderator and THEY are the ones who brought something to light...like what? You want a medal for that? Pipe down, no one cares.

Reddit is the awesomeness, I am on the Maine subreddit a lot and there have been CD people over there asking the same questions. Also on the Boston Bruins sub and others based on my interests. WTF? Is always entertaining.

So you base your dislike on some twit that most likely has zero to do with Reddit claiming to be a moderator there.

Who's the dupe here?

It's not one twit. It's MANY twits.

I'm not "on" reddit per say, but I do surf r/progmetal from time to time looking for new music. Every once in a while someone suggests a great new band, though most of the forum leans toward music that doesn't interest me.

If you ever want to kill a few minutes you should head over to r/wtfstockphotos. Pretty funny.

One or twenty it's a pain in the butt, I know, but that's not on Reddit, it's on a bunch of jerks.

Reddit moderators are a dime a dozen. Anyone who wants to start a subreddit can be a moderator. The lack of a selection process doesn't filter out twits.

Some mods there are perfectly fine. Some are duds. The ones who are duds probably don't moderate very popular subreddits.

Don't write off the site because of the duds.
