I liked how stumleupon worked, but they changed their comment system, and reddit rose to the top.

I find myself reading posts to see what people think, and I feel more interested in good comments than seeing some popular news post.

I think that is a much larger concern than something about mods or w/e

I guess reddit is for pop-culture, like jokes and the like. If you want a serious discussion with meaningful content, well go somewhere else

The fact that they obscure the number of upvotes could help with this.

Doesnt it seem odd that only 5k people are active voters any given time? If say 20k people left reddit, would the nr of upvotes change at all?

How can such a huge site only have 5k active voters? Or, if the owners decided to sell votes to gain political/economic favor, how would people be able to tell?
