People give Reddit too much credit.
It is the very definition of an incestuous cesspool. The shallow echo-chamber of too-like-minded ‘individuals’ is akin to stagnating water that only breeds blood-leeching mosquitoes. Sucking content from each other and deter any form of intellectual discussions.
A visit to a swamp may be lovely when it’s been dry; when it rains, it pours. Smart people don’t live on Reddit. Only ogres and vicious reptiles live there.
