The ability to create subreddits instead of having assigned ones means each topic is SO SPECIFIC you fail to broaden your mind or discover anything and instead sink into a feedback loop where you keep hearing the same opinions about the same topic

The layout makes it difficult to tell at a glance what things are (versus thumbnails)

The ability to downvote posts discourages discourse and defending of your position and instead encourages anonymously making another opinion less likely to be seen then leaving in favor of more circle jerking

This post is nothing but proof of Cred Forums's superiority. Instead of just downvoting my answer and causing it to be hidden from anyone seeking rational discourse, you had the ability to suggest something. Had I not known what Stockholm Syndrome was I would have just learned something, and there's now an open channel for us to continue discussion

Reddit is nothing but kids making their own subreddits to post funny links and cat videos then banning anyone from their subreddit who they don't like.

I defy you to find something on reddit that you can't find just as easily on Cred Forums

Reddit is worse simply because of the voting system. People shouldn't be given a system to hide things they don't like from anyone who doesn't decide to dig.

If they got rid of that it might be okay.

In what way? You're almost bound to meet a person with an opposing position on any Cred Forums board (minus the porn ones, but they really aren't for discussion). That's probably what makes Cred Forums so addictive and interesting: you don't know what the other person you're talking to thought beforehand (because they have no history), but they're opposing view is bound to give you some insight as to why you have your opinion (if you have some rationality). Threads very rarely end up being echo chambers, again unless it's in one of the porn boards (which clearly are there just to share porn). You either need to lurk more or fuck off.

Most of Cred Forums is an alt-right echo chamber at this point. Any views opposing the alt-right are met with racism or shitposting.

There are benefits to having a specific subreddit if that's what you want to talk about.

The problem is the upvote/downvote system that serves only to encourage hive mind and groupthink.

On Cred Forums, stupid retarded ideas are laughed at, but at they're not buried, hidden, or removed. That means more ideas are discussed.

The other major downside of reddit is overzealous mods on a fucking power trip. They will enforce their worldview on you using arbitrary criteria. You have big subreddits censoring posts criticizing Islam or Hillary Clinton, for example.

Unironically using alt-right
That's pretty fucking false. Most of the time it's just shills like you shitposting with some argument you don't back up and you getting butthurt when someone says nigger or spic while completely blowing you the fuck out. Most people here don't give a shit about your opinion. They just care if you can back it up. Unlike Reddit, this isn't a circlejerk where you're automatically right when you say certain key phrases.

See these?
This is exactly why Cred Forums will remain the same. I understand that there are no ''rules'' here and that anything goes, but has it ever worked in a positive way? Frog images, ad hominem attacks, racial slurs are considered valid arguments here and no one's really stopping people from doing that. That's why this site will always be the hell hole of the internet. The only board still worth checking out is /mu/, but the quality of it has definitely dimished over the years.

If /pol/ would stay in /pol/, a lot of these issues could be easily mitigated. I agree, though, I don't come to Cred Forums for any actual discussion because it's all shitposting or something close to it.

The usernames/karmawhoring aspect of it really makes it an insufferable festering pit of self-consciousness and passive aggression. The timidness and calculation and evasiveness is a shit that coats everything.

If I want specialist knowledge, Reddit is better, but for conversation Cred Forums is king.

Here you are freed from the shackles of society and can indulge your animal nature. That's such a strong desire that there are many books and movies about it. It is like being a Navi on Pandora.

It's always been like this here on Cred Forums. Really, if you don't like that, you should probably leave. Honestly, I like it this way. It gives Cred Forums a sense of culture and authenticity that's lacking on the majority of the Internet. Reddit only feels unique because of the subreddit devoted to specific topics schtick. Other than that, each subreddit is basically a forum devoted to circlejerking about a particular topic and with mods with a superiority complex. Discussions only take place when the people discussing are free to say anything they want (within the realm of legality or maybe even that can be ignored). That's why Cred Forums, with it's shitposting and lack of rules is infinitely better than Reddit: it's more akin to how people speak in an actual conversation than the PC echo chamber that is reddit. Ideas are discussed and sometimes implemented and at the same time people just interrupt that and say nothing while at the same time saying something. If you don't like that, just fucking leave. It's not true that you're stuck here forever. You can leave any fucking time you want. You can also lurk and sound like you aren't straight off the boat from Reddit, but leaving is also on the table, you triple nigger faggot.

If /pol/ would stay in /pol/
here we go again.
It's not that /pol/ start to migrate in every board, it's more that you all seem to believe that other boards are some kind of safespaces where you can hide.

politics has always been in every board, most subjects are related to politics in some way or another.
If you can't deal with it, or can't ignore it, maybe you should go somewhere more suited for you.

Josiah Peterson

You sound like a triggered left-wing piece of shit and honestly you should kill yourself.

Really, if you don't like that, you should probably leave.

I am here because I like the fast pace and hate having to wait hours or even days for a reply. I also hate having to sign up everywhere and having all my posts tied to an account.

Personally I don't like how rude people are here for no reason. It's not honesty, it's just being a dick because you lack the self-control / empathy.
It seems to be the inevitable byproduct of relaxed moderation and the ability to post straight away without having to make an account. But I understand that there is nothing I can do against toxic posters like these aside from filtering them as best as I can so complaining is pointless and will be met with the same predictable responses.

Julian Brooks

Whites are tired of being pushed against the wall, nigger. If you want things to cool off, tell your people to back off. We're sick of taking shit in our own countries and getting nothing but ingratitude in response to charity.

You should be grateful to have a place where you can more clearly see sentiments that are usually hidden.

And this just showed how reddit is more suited to you.
Really you should go.

Idk, build your own safespace if you can't handle that, or maybe your own reality, if you can't imagine that people might actually be racist, and you can't deal with it or ignore it.

Kayden Jones
Kayden Jones

I dare say that on Cred Forums you can discuss even better than in real life (given both parties actually want to discuss, but I'll get to that later). With the anonymity Cred Forums offers you have the freedom to say anything you wish without other persons looking down on you as a person for thinking that. You're just another anonymous post making a point, with no social pressure to say the thing that is "correct" in that situation. Not only that, but the anonymity also forces you to back up your claims, since you can't just say "hey I studied for this trust me", you're just an anonymous post, back up your claims.

On the flip side, anonymous posts can also just be shitposts because every voice is heard here (given there is a little censorship, but let's not mention that for the sake of the argument since it doesn't actually matter that much with archives). Nothing stops people from posting garbage. The trick is to spot those people and ignore them... Or, you know, shitpost harder, that can be fun too.

Aaron Mitchell

toxic
The only thing that is toxic is the suppression of expression.
You are trying to tell people to not be themselves, to fit inside the box that other people give them.

I'm black and I call people niggers all the time because niggers are horrible creatures that steal, murder, and basically shame my race. I'm glad not all of my race are niggers, so I don't have to feel guilty on their behalf, but I'd understand if there was a race war, and I know what side I'd be on.

Xavier Harris

I have no respect for you really. Frankly, I don't even know you, much less care about you. You just need to have fun once in your fucking life and stop getting triggered by offensive language or shit like that. No one cares except for faggots like you. You know why? It doesn't affect anyone in the end. Calling someone a nigger or a faggot shouldn't elicit any response. You're on the fucking Internet. No one owes you shit. People will insult you for responding to them here. If you don't like that go to your little safespace in redditand suck your fucking thumb. I'm not your friend and I owe you nothing. Get that into your fucking brain, you retard. I can use whatever language I like and you can too. Just don't tell me what to do while I'm here. I don't care how you feel, but you should be decent/mature enough to realize that no one owes you shit here (or in real life for that matter) and you don't dictate the rules here.

Brody Hughes

just being a dick
To whom? We're all anonymous. We don't care about the person that typed it. We care about the argument that guy made in his post. If that post is fucking retarded I'll be sure to mention it. The discussion will likely keep going with insults from both sides but at least it's an honest discussion. Needing everything to be "politically/socially correct" is absolutely retarded and enormous faggotry which you can best find on reddit.

Josiah Miller
Josiah Miller

but you should be decent/mature enough to realize that no one owes you shit here

With the way you speak you have no business talking about decency and maturity.

Also I said myself in my post that I understand that rude people are inevitable in a place with relaxed moderation and anonymity. I also said that I am not going to tell people what to do because people like that are stubborn anyways and won't listen.

I am not even talking about politics. You can also be honest without being rude.

Josiah Peterson
Josiah Peterson

Not him, but I do agree that people yell /pol/ a little too early. On the other hand, there is most certainly /pol/ shitposters on every board. They try to force retarded Hillary, Trump or Pepe related topics. These fucks are genuinely annoying since that has nothing to do with the board at all, however they try to mask it. Still, most things people yell /pol/ at is bullshit. Given, I hate /pol/ and all of it's newfaggotry.

Seriously leave faggot. If you don't like Cred Forums, don't expect anyone to change it for you. I don't tell people that they shouldn't make out when I walk in on them by accident. Literally, leave. Go anywhere. I don't give a shit. You shat up this already shit board full of posts that literally go against the rules of the board to post this nonsense. Like seriously, don't try to cahnge the world until you check youself and change yourself. Also, at this point, it's almost obligatory to recommend suicide because you have been a pain in my fucking ass like no other faggot in this Taiwanese bathing forum. Even newfags come here with the expecting this place to be where ll the alt-right death frogs and hackers are at.

Dunno why this shit thread is on Cred Forums desu.

The only thing I can say Cred Forums does better than Reddit is on Cred Forums in order to be passive aggressive you actually have to show your face. Both websites are passive aggressive shithole circlejerks that should not be browsed, however. The validity of your argument and your ability to defend yourself in argument doesn't matter when:

A. The opposing party can just call you autistic and the entire board will consider that a valid reply and will not question them or consider that out of the ordinary

or

B. The opposing party can just le ebin downboat you- very much likely across multiple posts- and maybe even ban you from their subreddit because they have no argument

shithole cancer, the both of these websites

Only a retard would be passive aggressive here.
The entire point of this site is to be openly aggressive when you feel like it.

Adam Murphy

If someone resorts to solely calling you autistic nobody replies because everyone sees you've been arguing with a retard. No point in continuing that discussion when you can just go find another one with someone who might actually care, or not even care, but at least present valid arguments for a while.
