Web dev here! I'm not much for introductions, but I was looking for an alternative to reddit after all the chaos over there. I don't hate fat people, don't worry. I don't think they should've deleted the community, though. I tried out Voat.co for a few days, but it seems like it's just collecting the worst of reddit, so I noped out of there. It's good to encounter other points of view and argue with people once in awhile, but hanging around a toxic community too much can be bad for you. Also, the more I use the reddit-style voting system, the less I like it. Perhaps if there were no downvotes it would work better. I don't know. It seems to encourage a hivemind mentality.
This is why I'm checking out Hubski now. There's no voting! I'm interested to see how well this works.
