It's okay. You can visit FARK and Reddit. Reddit has much more depth than FARK, if you are willing to look.


yeah, bottomless pits have lots of depth

Dhusk: And sorry people, Reddit is a much better and more interesting site than Fark, and this is someone who's been suing both for many years.


I guess it's not going that well? You're probably not even going to get your legal fees back.

sxacho: I don't even know how to Reddit. I tried but it makes no sense to me.


How to Reddit

1. Be a clueless 20-year-old white male

2. Probably at a community college or commuter school

3. Have a crippling devotion to Gabe Newell

4. Have edgy opinions about pot, eugenics, race relations, feminism, and RON PAUL

5. Enjoy "jailbait" and dropping n-bombs because you're totally not racist, you hate everybody

6. Get really mad about the Internet

js34603: God Reddit is awful to navigate. Grats on making a Teabagger look stupid (I assume that's what they did, all I got out of TFA's link was Snoop Lion posts there), I guess. Don't hurt yourselves patting each other on the back for that.


Reddit's site is like somebody decided to make up a website using Windows 3.1

Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: Question 1. "Do you like Ron Paul, pot, and poor economic ideas?"

/Reddit politics in a nutshell


Don't forget:

1. Aren't white men the most oppressed group in society currently and forever?

2. Girls are mean to nerds. Is it ok to hate all women, especially geeky ones, in perpetuity because Sally called me a nerd in third period?

3. Why has Electronic Arts not been arrested and prosecuted for making games I did not enjoy, including sports games that only dudebros who beat me up in school play?

4. I am a fan of pornography of questionable legality. What protections do you offer for online forums where such things might be discussed at length?

Pure redditry right there.

It's okay. You can visit FARK and Reddit. Reddit has much more depth than FARK, if you are willing to look.

If the website developers are willing to take that site out of the Internet Stone Age, then maybe it's worth that look.

The comment sections on reddit are so much easier to use than Fark.  You're notified of replies on the site itself, threaded comments, etc...

Invisible Pedestrian: Would still like to find something that's a nice balance between Fark (slow updates, but modmins do a good job of filtering out the crap) and Reddit (faster but some junk, and threaded views of comments).


You're missing the thing that makes reddit far superior to Fark, and it's not the "threaded" commenting structure, it's the fact that upvoting brings relevant/funny/germane responses to the top and relegates the stupidity to the bottom of the feed.

Sure, in some subs the stupidest stuff is voted to the top, but if you're hanging around in /r/pics or /r/adviceanimals you deserve what you get.

Having to wade through thread-shiatting morons who sit and wait to poop in the boobies around here is what makes me love going back to reddit.

Reddit isn't bad because it's not fark.

Reddit is bad because it supports racism, sexism, and pedophilia, blatantly and openly, and it's users routinely upvote such material.

Reddit should destroyed, its severs melted, and salt poured over the remains.

Just two very knowledgeable sections of reddit that are very worthwile,

But rail on like children. I get that Reddit is seen as some sort of "competitor" to FARK (why, I have no idea). Closed minded is always best minded!

The guy got just what he deserved.

Politics is a cut throat business.  If he can't handle a bunch of trolls on Reddit, he is in no way prepared to take on any high-powered position where his opponents are going to savage him every chance they get.

And sorry people, Reddit is a much better and more interesting site than Fark, and this is someone who's been suing both for many years.  There's a good reason why Reddit has 20x+ the number of users than Fark.
