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.
