If they had a different method, I would. Sadly, I'm not a coiner.

Bitcoin is actually really easy to use. Try making an account at Circle or Coinbase. I use Coinbase, but I've heard that Circle is easier to use (Coinbase requires a bank account to be linked, but I think Circle lets you just use a credit card).

Same here. I'm not doing bitcoin until it's more safe to use. I remember just a year or two ago that Mt. Gox thing got hacked.

Nah. This site is doomed as well. The owners aren't interested in growth, and have an unrealistic idea on how to fund it.

Something else will come along, with proper backing, and growth, and we'll move over at that time.

Reddit's downfall will not be a quick flash as Digg's was, but rather a long and slow destruction much like a fiery reentry from the upper atmosphere.

I think that's their plan. They are trying to keep collateral damage to a minimum. They are trying to cut the vile underbelly out and if they do it slow enough the place won't collapse and they will stay viable. Think of it as sort of a blood transfusion. Replace the bad blood with happy ignorant good blood that has no idea what went on and don't care. They are trying to change the hive mind.

I'd honestly be ok with that, reddit being kept somewhat viable despite being stale. I find the voat community to be great and very respectful. One of my biggest fears is that eventually reddit could implode and send all of the trolls, the subreddit drama, and contemporary reddit problems over here. Well, assuming at some point in the future the registrations here get opened up again. I just hope that the complete final-migration doesn't happen for a good long while.

The only possible outcome in that reality is that they become the next iVillage.

Yeah, but that's like saying one could clean up the economy by hacking out the vile underbelly. Removing the bottom of a house of cards won't fix it, it removes the only thing holding it up.

Soon it will be nothing but corrupt mods, bots, and memes. Actual content creators are the ones bailing.

Well it worked. All the evil redditors have jumped ship. Now Voat is a cesspool of trolls. /s

Though it seems that way, Digg's wasn't a single flash either. There were spurts of exodus from Digg to Reddit at least 10 months before v4.0 happened. (I know, I was part of one of those migrations!) v4.0 was just the last massive straw.

The same thing is happening now at Reddit. It's bleeding out and it's hard to see how they'll stop the flow.

That said, Voat really needs to open its doors again.

Sort of like MySpace. It will never actually die, just become a completely irrelevant circlejerk like most of their subreddits.

I blocked reddit and facebook from being accessed from my browser...my life is much happier since i've done that.

So much less energy spent reading crap.

...so ellen pao left because of rampant sexism and it's a mainstream media frenzy, but one other female employee gets fired because of ?, and two other female employees resign because of "internal conflicts" and not a peep.

isn't it funny that way? if any more female employees leave (and I don't know how many more are left), will the story be that just maybe ellen pao took a work environment that functioned and changed it in a way that future expectations are now impossible to work under? . . . . . . naaaaaaaaaah.

I thought the go to reason for Victoria being fired was that the board wanted to monetize the AMAs and she disagreed with going in that direction? Was this disproved?

One of my old bosses was asked in a fairly large meeting (75 people or so), "Are there any plans to address the low morale issue here?"

His answer? "Morale will improve through attrition."

Amazing.

They'll always give non-accusatory reasons: trying something new, or moving for family reasons.

Because god forbid you even make a spark toward a bridge. That company, depending on how petty they are, will trash you up one side and down the other to every subsequent company you try to work for.

Lying is the American way.

It's also possible that she legally could not say anything negative even if she wanted to. An increasing number of companies now force workers into non-disparagement clauses which effectively force you to sign away your first amendment rights and create a scenario where if you say anything negative about the company they can sue you even after you leave the company. I'm not exactly sure how a contract is allowed to legally violate your constitutional rights when even state law can't, but I assure you they're certainly 'a thing'.

as Reddit is taking difficult steps in a much needed positive direction.

Burning bridges or not, that was an unnecessary statement if you truly believe that "Eddit" was moving in the wrong direction.

Obviously, she does not.

This is not an issue about women leaving Reddit. The real story is talented people quitting a toxic company.
