Imzy was a pretty weak site though. I used it a bit. Mostly when alt-right types describe websites as `hugboxes` they're just upset about not being allowed to be racist, homophobic, or transphobic - but Imzy was the closest thing I ever saw to a genuine `hugbox`. In the dozen or so times I visited the website I saw very little genuine debate or discussion. The design was also annoying - ironically, not too dissimilar to the much-criticised reddit redesign - so I found little reason to become a regular there.
I'm too young to have any memory of the 2000 election - besides being British, my age at that point was still counted in months - however this comment drove home (for perhaps the first time) how much recent world history hinges on the smallest things. It's a 'for the want of a nail' scenario of the purest form but one that played out on the very highest of stages. Crazy shit happens, indeed.
Thanks for the response. I understand all the views you've raised and agree that right now it's not a pressing issue. I think it's a valuable part of hubski that there's a lot of importance attached to a circledot and this dynamic should continue to form a part of the community.
Because it makes the hub wheel redundant. You've just invented Reddit.
