It's fast, cheap validation for people who have nothing interesting to say. All you need to do is latch on to the lowest common denominator and wait for those sweet reactions upvotes to roll in. I don't even believe the heavy safe-space moderation part of it came about as part of some malicious agenda-pushing conspiracy, it just naturally evolved out of people wanting that easy echo chamber of positive attention.
What's weird is how people still value that forced praise even when they know its forced and they did nothing to earn it.

Lt. Col. Jean V. Dubois (Ret.) said:
"You! I've just awarded you the prize for the hundred-meter dash. Does it make you happy? […] No dodging, please. You have the prize — here, I'll write it out: 'Grand prize for the championship, one hundred-meter sprint.'" He had actually come back to my seat and pinned it on my chest. "There! Are you happy? You value it — or don't you?" Mr. Dubois had looked surprised. "It doesn't make you happy?"
"You know darn well I placed fourth!"
"Exactly! The prize for first place is worthless to you . . . because you haven't earned it. But you enjoy a modest satisfaction in placing fourth; you earned it."

I truly sadden by this any other things at the moment. Sure I couldn't be bothered to care about reddit or the boring slow death of YouTube and a few other big name websites. Its not that however The death of the internet it's self. I'm old enough to have seen its golden age decline at lightspeed. The greatest source of information humanity has ever gathered at the tips of your fingers is mostly gone and very little will be left in a decade or less.
Well here's to a new DarkAge

He's a soyboy faggot with a gorilla wife who chimped out after losing at tennis. He will never be loved by the reddit userbase no matter how much tranny girlcock he sucks.

You're thinking of Alexis Ohanian, /u/kn0thing. He's the guy who stepped down from the board a few weeks ago and said they need to replace his board position with a black person.

How long until Reddit becomes a porn site with a few heavily moderated drumpf bad politics and wholesome memes subs?

Honestly? I think porn is gonna be the next thing to get axed given how advertiser friendly reddit has become, then it's going to go the way of tumblr.

There's been a lot of 'reddit is dying' fear-mongering on the site for years, but in the event they end up doing that, along with recent policy changes and the ever-looming threat of the revocation of sec. 230, we're actively watching reddit actually die this time.

How can reddit ever die? There's millions of people dumb enough and demoralized enough to not only see nothing wrong with the site's moderation policies, but they'll blame themselves if they ever do get banned. Where else can they go to get their latest hate-free takes on countless different niche and popular interests? How else will they be able to ask morgan freeman or the creators of rick and morty questions? Where else will they be able to discuss the lesbian dinosaurs on doctor who without anyone making "Lickalottapuss" jokes?

Well, nobody thought tumblr would go the way it did, but look at it now. I honestly can't say the last time it was relevant, and i only seen it brought up in conversations such as these.

I would have said that around Tumblr's massive ban but I imagine "sex positivity" will be getting an even more massive push soon. We are already seeing the promotion of open relationships and sex work with anyone being critical of the porn industry labeled as nazi bigots.

Do you think most posts you see on reddit are made by real people? There's an awful lot more bots than you think posting there.
