When making a site there are always trade-offs when it comes to number of users, quality of content, moderation, etc...
It's hard finding places on the internet that aren't infected with Reddit. And it's nearly impossible to have an at-least semi-popular website which doesn't have Reddit users browsing it. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if some of you are average Reddit users.
But I have a dream. A dream that one day there would be a place with good discussion, a large user base and is free of Redditors!
And it is not impossible; I'll use image boards for example. To mostly deflect Redditors, or at-least a Redditor mentality is by deflecting the bugman mentality (Here's the definition I use for "bugman" https://youtu.be/vdRJMuOFO88
). Because all Reddit really is, is a bugman circle jerk. That's why I've always been opposed to 8chan. Is because the user can make their own boards, "bugman" boards, circle-jerk boards, /leftypol/. You need to combine topics that still contain different opinions. Because that's where the real discussion comes in. /pol/ should never be /leftpol/ or /rightpol/, /a/ should never be /shounen/ or /elite/, /g/ should never be /windows/ or /openbsd/...
Maybe if something like this becomes big bugmen will start second guessing things like Reddit, instagram, Zoomerapp2000. And (at the risk of sounding like that 300iq Rick and Morty meme) better internet will arise of intellectuals seeking understanding and new ideas.
tldr; The final fronteir is not in the stars or at the end of technological research, but within our selves.
Lets explore new ideas, new possibilities. Boldly go where no man has gone before!
