Because it used to be a well-designed site similar to reddit. Then over the course of a few years, the admins tried to censor the AACS key, took away the bury (downvote) button, allowed paid stories to be placed alongside user-submitted content, and finally removed user accounts, submissions, and commenting.

Here is what it used to look like. They redesigned the site. Badly. Only power users could get their content seen. And this was on the heels of a scandal where a user was banned for posting a CD key in an image and said image was spammed for days in protest.
