Every. Damn. Thing. In /r/Portland is downvoted. It's a very unwelcoming subreddit to diverging opinions.

I want to say that most of the shittiness seems to come from commenters aligned with those two ideologies, but honestly, I see shit from everyone.

Most of the causticness seems to come from the fact that people get extremely invested in local issues because they have a greater and more immediately felt impact than other things. Couple that with online disinhibition and you get people at each other's throats because of bikes or whatever.

Its funny because coming from the left I view /r/portland as far more conservative than the community of Portland in general.

Which I attribute to the demographics of the sub...white, mostly male, with a professional job which permits them to fuck off during work hours hanging out on the sub. In addition the sub is very very transplant heavy, just try discussing leftist solutions to rising rents, gentrification, and a falling quality of life.

You'll be down voted to oblivion

Most of voat's kind of a ghost town, and I think it will remain that way until something serious happens to reddit or certain subreddits, like if the mods of a sub go apeshit. Even then, I think people would be more inclined to migrate to another subreddit than voat.

It was only a matter of time, honestly. Just kind of a shame that the kinds of people who fled here came for a stupid/gross reason.

Well, I'm here and hopeful. I have left reddit behind, and I am glad to see this place grow. All of the content from r/Portland came from the same 5 users, most of them the mods. Maybe we can be a bit more then just a lost/found pet listing?
