When a company with 2 employees can fix rogue mod problems in under a day, how can a company with 66 employees and still no solution hope to compete? I fucking love voat

This is when you start to realise, that the other place is fully capable of solving all their problems, both with certain aspects of the community, and the tools they offer that community at large, but because they are only interested in becoming profitable, and see it as a job, rather than a labour of love, they have no incentive to improve their shit.

This was a realization I came to when they fired Victoria.

They're a social company, whose success hinges on the happiness of their community, and they couldn't give us a heads up?

They waited days before telling us, and they interviewed with journalists before directly telling us.

Sheer incompetence.

Reddit is going the same path that digg thought would bring them money

Their incentive to improve it should include profit motive. They've simply allowed a controversial political viewpoint to direct their plan for achieving that profit that many of the users disagree with. Time will tell if it's ultimately successful, but people like me believe that you can preserve free speech, keep the userbase happy, and make a profit at the same time.

This is why I moved from Reddit to Voat

They're not trying to. They're trying to cultivate a marketable culture to encourage advertisers and/or make the site more attractive as an acquisition. Ironically they may have shot themselves in the foot there, considering the rioting.

They really did shoot themselves in the foot too. They had a great reputation, and they tarnished it by listening to the SRS mob. Most redditors didn't even know about coontown or FPH before SRS threw a hissy fit, but now the secret is out, and advertisers are pulling out.

Basically, who wants to buy reddit now? A site that put willingly set the front page on fire with Nazi flags, pictures of Hitler, fat people, calling the CEO all sorts of names etc now?

Don't do it @Atko. I'm a mod and all my sooper-powuuurs will be rendered useless. Oh wait, I forgot...I don't give a shit. I'm a glorified janitor. Nevermind.

Because to that other place, mods like @she are RightThinkers™. They don't see the site's most toxic community as anything harmful.
