There is no point to building a subverse if some butt-hurt brigade can manipulate votes and take it over.

I would also like to point out that moderators do not build subverses. Subscribers do. Moderators are only there because spam filters aren't smart enough to operate on their own, yet.

>Both sites have a system where you can make and build a competing sub to counter ones you don't like for any reason. I support this as ownership encourages people to build things instead of just run them into the ground.

The problem with Reddit is that once SRS gains moderation authority of a sub, it's Game Over for that topic on Reddit.

Creating a competing sub usually doesn't work. For example, there have been multiple attempts to get around the censorship that takes place in /r/Politics by creating competing subs, but most people don't even know that those subs exist or that /r/Politics is heavily censored to eliminate political views outside of an extremely narrow range.

The only competing-sub success story that I know about is /r/ainbow.
