Girion47: velvet_fog: Fark: It's now news, because you probably saw it on Reddit first.Reddit: we're assholes that don't understand web design and we will shiat on other sites.
Cletus C.: Really? If you're so in love with Reddit why do you keep jerking Fark around? End it, you coward.

Carth: superoogie: Is this really what Fark has been reduced to? Posting a link to a site that stole an image from a front-page Reddit post from a day or so ago?And if the author of the steal had bothered to read the comments, there were a bunch more interesting speculations in the thread to include.It's not News.. It's day old reposted Reddit!
superoogie: A fair enough point, but with the trolls gone, at least some relevant, interesting discussion happens. I took a stroll over to Politics, and the same threadcrapping trolls are there from years ago preventing any interesting discussion from happening. God forbid something does happen worth reading, it is buried in all the troll/counter-troll bullshiat. On Reddit, the interesting discussion is threaded and easily readable. Yes, the price for that is a bit more groupthink, but frankly, I find it head and shoulders above what has happened here, or, to the point, what hasn't happened here.
superoogie: Cletus C.: Really? If you're so in love with Reddit why do you keep jerking Fark around? End it, you coward.You know what? I have.I've been coming here since 2001. I remember the old Fark, when it was fun and freewheeling, and before Drew decided he wanted to make the site corporate-safe. Back when epic threads really were epic.And I, too, was annoyed by people saying the same things I'm saying about Reddit until a year or so ago. But then I actually checked Reddit out. And nearly all the content on Fark really was just re-posted from Reddit a day or so later. And users have a real impact on the community without having to pay $5 a month. And discussions aren't 90% troll bait/troll bash because that stuff gets downvoted. Where there is a specialized discussion area for whatever your interest (though the less said about some, the better). Anyone saying they can't follow Reddit or hate the design are either not actually using the site, stupid, or missing the point, though someone can obviously prefer one over the other.I've left and I've not been back, and felt I missed little. This story (a content steal of a repost) struck a cord enough for me to log in an post again. Consider this a brief call to an ex after seeing her hit rock bottom in public./Thread-jack, I know.
Kurmudgeon: ...how links are green lit.

YodaBlues: /Reddit wouldn't be so bad if the WALLOTEXT layout didn't make me want to jab a fork into my dickhole.
