I came to hubski from a previous reddit drama wave (I don't even remember what it was about), jeez, over a year ago now. It was, a more... strident diaspora, as kleinbl00 so politely put it. This site is quite different from reddit, which solves some of its problems, but creates other ones in the process. I tend to just keep hubski on my bookmark bar and check in periodically, especially if something interesting is going on. Generally speaking, the community is rather insular and discussions tend to be muted, but I think that's just the natural consequence of a sociable, get-to-know-people kind of atmosphere. For shy people, it's a bit of a challenge to become active, and people interested in niche or controversial happenings will probably struggle to find much content and discussion; at least I know I have.

I've also been lurking around voat for the past couple months, and it feels like modded-reddit, a couple different features, a few different policies, and surprisingly active on certain subvoats. Ultimately, I've been browsing reddit less and less for about two years now, but there are still a handful of mediocre communities that I still read and participate in. Anything related to /r/all or the defaults are pretty much trash at this point. Facebook had a similar arc for me, I was quite active starting in 2005, then just tapering off between 2007-2009.
