Sir Roderick Glossop: 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.Couldn't agree more. I only check out the Geek and Entertainment pages, and only rarely at that. The rest of this site is absolute garbage these days and has been for a couple of years.
