To be clear, I did ask how "this site or another" could become the new, improved Reddit. Possibly, there is another site out there that exemplifies what I'm looking for, or maybe is yet to be created. Either way, I'd like to hear from others who are interested in such a thing.
I'd say that mk is a pretty accountable admin and cares a lot about this place and the people that use it.
I don't know about mk or any other admins here but I will assume that they are decent people until proven otherwise. For that matter, it is possible that there are decent people among the Reddit admins, but due to the cowardly, anonymous nature of the sneak attack that is the shadow ban, there is no way to tell them apart from the scumbags.
