Word. Less worthless low-effort bullshit and 'witty' one-liners in the comments and more actual content and discussion for thinking people. As both thenewgreen and ButterflyEffect have mentioned, reddit serves its own purpose but to me Hubski is a completely different animal. Both sites are content aggregators but Hubski is more personal and has a lot of potential to broaden your worldview for the very simple fact (that insomniasexx mentioned to me when I first started really using this site days ago after registering months prior and never really jumping in both feet first) that everything posted isn't going to be 100% directly related to your interests, because of the different people you follow. So there isn't any 'hive mind' mentality and you get to see a lot of interesting stuff you might never have checked out otherwise.

Side-note, what happens when Hubski grows? Are people worried about the site suffering content-wise the way reddit did? It seems most of the site functions (the hub wheels for one) are more suited to a smaller community. I really enjoy how low-key it is here and the feeling of community that comes from that, I'm just curious about the future.
