Reddit's imploding at the moment, so I'm not surprised. Though, most users seem to have gone to Voat, which is essentially a reddit clone.

It fucking HAPPENED. This one was so much bigger than the last one. I'll try to update the data thread tomorrow.

Are you serious?

insomniasexx  ·  1465 days ago  ·  link  ·  

I was serious but due to unforeseen circumstances, I have yet to update the thread. On it. :P

Hahaha I can't wait to see that analytical data, should be interesting. So whats the story behind Reddit? Something about hating fat people?

insomniasexx  ·  1465 days ago  ·  link  ·  

Yeah reddit took way freedom of speech and is basically the worst dictator in the world or something.

Reddit, as a company, took the reasonable and completely within-their-rights decision to ban distasteful and even grossly offensive subreddits - most notably fatpeoplehate. For some reason, a large amount of redditors decided this violated their right to free speech even though these subreddits were really awful places and gave the site a pretty bad image. There was uproar and a massive thread was started about reddit alternatives. The two main ones that came up were hubski and voat, a reddit clone with a more fisher-price interface. Most of the annoyed redditors seem to have moved to voat, which has completely collapsed under load, while hubski has luckily been bypassed by most of the fph redditors. However, this did have the positive effect (for people like me) that some new users (like me) have found hubski.
