Personally, have been using ublock origin without regrets.

When asked about voat being a threat, and the repetition of the Digg migration, Reddit CEO said: "reddit had better technology than Digg. I don't think Voat has better technology than reddit." submitted by distortedlines to MeanwhileOnReddit

There were multiple gripes with Digg, that led to multiple migrations. Back in the day, I used both reddit, and digg, and it was the 09 F9 11 02 ... AACS controversy that made me stop going to digg, and I was not the only one. The later redesign, and tech changes, were just symptomatic of digg's push to become financially viable to its investors in lieu of its user base. In retrospect, people just look at final blows, and not the entire ebb, and flow of users of different content curators, I mean, eight years is multiple lifetimes in how the internet functions. And that is precisely what is happening with reddit. Then again, just grabbing the relevant bit from wikipedia on the digg refurbishing, it is remarkably similar:

Digg faced problems due to so-called "power users" who would manipulate the article recommendation features to only support one another's postings, flooding the site with articles only from these users and making it impossible to have genuine content from non-power users appear on the front page. Frustrations with the system led to dwindling web traffic, exacerbated by heavy competition from Facebook, whose like buttons started to appear on websites next to Digg's.[18] High staff turnover included the departure of head of business development Matt Van Horn, shortly after v4's release.

It is very possible that this is not reddit's digg moment, but I do see it as a signal flare of sorts. If I were a betting man, I would say that a redesign of reddit, with more "sculpted content" is coming in two-three years, and everything that has happened recently with FPH, with Victoria, with Pao, with r/all cultivation, was just laying down the foundation. Then again, out of the personalities of reddit, the only one I really trusted was Aaron Swartz. Reddit as I knew it fighting SOPA was dead when TPP was not the news story it should have been, through some weird mix of moderation, and user apathy.

On the plus side, reddit's decentralisation of content, where people have been unsubscribing from subs for years, finding niche content is still its greatest strength, being pushed for years. The amount of traffic that probably drives both reddit, and imgur through subs gonewild is probably enough to keep nsfw content on the site, which means some level of anonymity will be maintained. Last I heard, candidfashionpolice, aka creepshots without any of the negative press, was still up, just not making the same news.

Honestly, probably use it to fork, and distribute a gittorrent project, or documenting github alternatives, with their pros/cons/prominent projects. It is either that, or going full retard, and documenting all the SJW drama that happens both on github, and open source projects.

Expose every female member of the bully hunter witch hunters for the frauds and cunts they really are

I mean, it was proven it was all prerecorded, a marketing campaign to sell headsets, and was the very definition of fake news, "we were just starting a conversation"? And already exposed?

District 9 sequel submitted by Monkeyblaine to movies

Project2501 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

His totally not Battle Angel Alita meets Halo "spiritual sequel" was terrible apart from a few sequences (which in retrospect, might be better then Cameron's official adaptation coming out later).

His totally not Appleseed meets Ex Machina was even worse.

Right now, he's more indie then indie, with a studio that makes short films, that may or may not turn into a feature length, using steam and youtube to "gauge interest". Not entirely sure if that is due to him literally making worse and worse films, so is essentially blacklisted, or if he has such a hard on for writing his own "original" science fiction stories only, that he is willingly going after different type of funding, or data collection on audience tastes. I would make comments about his ability to write any type of story, outside of the first, but that would require watching any of the Oats Studios short films. But man, turns out I really hated Chappie.

Anybody remember or want to rewatch new remakes? submitted by Conspirologist to movies

Project2501 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

I remember Dredd more so then the Stallone one. Mainly because it wasn't really a remake, but an "original" story. And before I get into specifics, yes, both it and The Raid started principle production shit around the same time, The Raid just was finished earlier. And they both took heavy inspiration from Die Hard. Which makes them both better action movies then most released this past decade. And weirdly, inspired a new onslaught of films, like John Wick.

Total Recall I remember the flying car chase, but yeah, its story fell flat. And I swear it is better then the new Blade Runner. And the American Ghost in the Shell for that matter. Robocop was trash though.

So yeah, right now, feeling like rewatching Dredd. And maybe Total Recall if I have nothing better to do. But not The Thing, and I am not talking The Thing From Another World or The Thing [1982]. Or that Evil Dead one. I will rewatch Terminator 3 then any of the films that came after. But then again, I haven't even been bothered to watch Justice League. the new Star Wars, or that Prometheus 2 "Alien reboot", and a slew of action/science fiction films that on paper, I should have been primed audience to see. So I understand what you mean about "impersonal studio crap".
