    Horrible site re-designs and soft-locking out mobile web-browsers with their nag-popups to install their spyware app. No, your site is not “better in the app” >:(

        I mostly use reddit via web interface on my desktop, and the mobile apps don’t really hold much of a candle to that IMO

      Right? I’m running Vivaldi on my desktop and it has a side panel on it that lets me run Reddit’s mobile web interface alongside whatever else I’m doing in my browser. But thanks to that endless nag, it’s unusable.

      Lemmy runs just fine though…

    That most of the time it’s a karma-grubbing rat race. Posts cater to the lowest common denominator, stir the pot, or both. This is of course made worse by the fact that some subreddits can block people without a certain amount of karma joining, and the algorithm does not give newer posts a fair chance at being seen.

      And because of the whole karma-farming thing, the discussions on most subreddits are a joke. And I mean that literally, by the way. On like, 99% of all posts, instead of a discussion, everybody is trying to out-joke each other so they can get more imaginary internet points.

      EDIT: A bad word.

    Imagine yourself in the middle of junkyard, a plastic bag on your head, trying to befriend a horde of zombies…

    The “Anti-Evil Operations” (site-moderation, aka AEO) is very opaque and undermines the autonomy of individual subreddits. In /r/moderatepolitics, we finally just banned discussion of trans issues altogether because AEO had their thumb on the scale. I definitely come down on the pro-trans side, but it’s impossible to talk to someone on the other side of the issue when they have to avoid violating broad and poorly defined rules. The responses from inquiries has been basically non-existent, and this is for a fairly sizeable subreddit (250k subscribers).

      Subreddits dedicated to criticizing improperly imposed bans from other subs have been banned. r/banned was a safe place to criticize unjustly imposed subreddit bans.

    the subreddits that are too big/becoming too big are the ones that are easiest to find. it’s kind of a common problem on social media platforms

    The tracking of the company. I don’t find Reddit to be that bad of a place at all, but the data collection really puts me off. I do still have an account, but I strive to use it less.
