Agreed. This format is WAY better. Always bumps the threads with the newest comments to the top, etc. Facebook is awful for discussions

Twitter is awful for discussion. It's a mess to read. It's amazing as a place for consolidating a bunch of news sources and stuff like that, and getting links to articles, but when people try to argue or have discussions on there it's just a cluster [expletive] of unreadable Tweets one after another. After that you have, what? Facebook and Instagram comments? That's like a half step above news article/blog comments as the darkest underbelliest dumbest parts of the internet.

Maybe I'm missing something obvious, but I don't really see any newer social media platforms that are better at doing what we do than this one.


I prefer this, too. We're obviously in the minority. You can disagree with it all you want, but a ton of people basically abandoned this type of format for newer social platforms.

Generally those aren't the type of people we want here anyways, so more power to them

To me, Reddit is more of the new style message board. Format complaints aside, it's basically one giant, subdivided message board, and has just absolutely crushed the whole like/dislike system that many here clamored for.

I've been to Reddit once or twice. It's such a visual mess that it wasn't even worth digging into. I tried reading one of the AMA's and couldn't figure out what the hell was going on

Well, I don't feel bad for reasons, but I'll donate more in a few days.

edit: look, I'm almost divorced. Everything I spend not out of cash can cause a fight
