When @MK@ got rid of tags as something you could follow, my feed turned to utter and absolute shit. I had been following 30+ people.
There was also the nasty period where all the Redditors syncretic invited in got confused as to the difference between "share" and "upvote" and my feed became a miasma of crap.
So I unfollowed everybody and used the community collections to interact. It worked fine. Then I slowly added people back in so my front page wouldn't be empty, and for some reason I stopped at 4.
