I'm starting to see news articles about the reddit redesign make it to the normie press; none of them are good. I'd post one or two but, eh I just don't care any more. Starting to get a Digg vibe. Hubski looks to be he 83,000 or so most popular website in the USA, and from that link we get a decent amount of traffic from Turkey and India as well, but not Canada. Then again Alexa is odd on the non-main websites and has weird reporting.

I was bored last night and went through some "reddit alternative" searches and the stuff from 2014-2017 Hubski is mentioned quite often. the current articles are mostly talking about how Voat imploded into racism and alt-right ethno-idiocy, while talking about the "chan" style boards. This explains why 4Chan has been a bigger pile of awful than normal of late. They also talk about Hacker News of all places. Maybe the shitlords will pass us over and we will escape the brunt of the exodus, which would be nice.

If there is an influx here this spring and summer? Welcome those that stick around. Don't forget to use the mute and block buttons on the trolls. Enjoy the temporary shitshow as things settle into the new normal.

And don't forget to get off the internet once in a while and go outside.
