Oh god we use Reddit for the same things, but different motivations.

You test screenwriting and mass appeal, I test communication boundaries and nuanced oddities of phrasing. I mean, most "conversation vs. masses" social media, especially with large character limits, are good places to play with boundaries and tailoring message to audience.

Interacting with Reddit, more than anywhere else I've paid attention to, is Gorgian Rhetoric in it's purest form; "you can say anything and be rewarded for it, as long as you get the phrasing right for the context."

...and now they're all over here.

Li'l secret - Syncretic's diaspora has not been good for the place. Watch for a few weeks before you form any opinions. There's a whole lot of "me too!" shit right now.
