    No one will read your comment if it's long, and if you aren't fast enough, someone else will have replied and then no one will see your comment.

That's another problem I see with Reddit. There's an extra meta-game you have to play if you want yourself heard, that really shouldn't exist. Discussion should be just that: discussion. Not a bunch of flaming hoops you have to jump through, at just the right time, in just the right way.

As TeaMistress pointed out below, I would say that this really depends on the community. Smaller subreddits definitely provide much better spaces for lengthy responses and discussion, and places like AskHistorians are able to maintain an emphasis on long-form responses through careful moderation.
