Here's what I don't get about Reddit gold. That post was gilded 6 times. Why? He's the friggin CEO, he can give himself gold if he feels like it. Who are these rich ass redditors who can gild any old thing that tickles their fancy?

Reddit mods can give gold for free. Not saying it was all reddit mods that gave the gold, but I'm sure it played a part. This can also explain unpopular comments that are gilded because they are pro reddit

Makes the average redditor look at the gilding and assume its good before reading the content. They assume it's a good post before they get a chance to even analyze it because of the gold "super upvotes" next to it. It's judging the book by its cover first and believing it is good because it looks like it is good, like getting a brick of gold only to find out it is just worthless metal with a convincing paint job.

Gilding literally costs $4. I'm not rich, but it's not exactly like you're buying a house. Not to say that gilding that post in particular makes much sense; but it doesn't really break the bank.

Just let it go. If it comes back to you, its yours. If not, you're an asshole. Now give me my kitty!

I wonder whether stuff like this actually makes people make Voat accounts, or if 99% of Reddit just doesn't give a shit.

I'm thinking the latter.

Guess I'm a 1%er. Hell, I was only a lurker on reddit, joined just a tad over a year ago and had no posts over 100... but when Victora was sent packing, I simply deleted my account and left. Came here a couple days later when I realized I was simply not satisfied with any of the other options I could find.

All the other shit that is/was going on (FPH stuff, gamergate, whatever) I had long before simply filtered with RES and didn't care... that was community stuff, not core site stuff. Dumping a core employee that everyone liked because she stood up for the reddit community? Yeah, you clearly don't care about the community, so fuck you.

I loved Victoria. That was definitely the beginning of the end for me too, and I suspect for many others.

I was quite active on reddit for over 2 years. Loved the AMA and thought Victoria did a wonderful job. Even after she was shitcanned she apparently was willing to continue to run the impending AMAs because Reddit brass had no plan in place. That tells me that whatever reason that she was fired she was a good employee and made reddit a better place. An employee that make your company better by being a quality individual and then terminating them.... well fuck you reddit and I'm sure Victoria will have a fantastic influx of quality job offers.

I came over because I feel reddit has become kind of stale. Then again, I was only subscribed to the default subs.

I was afk for a couple of weeks and returned to a site full of drama about some employee being fired. I don't give a shit, I came to reddit for content, not internal management drama.

additionally, I'd been getting more and more annoyed by the huge amounts of negativity overall on the site. When I first saw mentions of voat this week I thought it was about time to jump ship.

Turns out Mr. Huffman is a little better with the community than Ellen Pao was. This was far less intrusive than I expected.
