Reddit is basically redesigning the site to make it more ad-friendly, as well as turning a blind eye to mod takeovers and rampant vote-brigading. So we made saidit in reaction to that.

Sadd..but I mean to say, is people the problem it turned into an extremest site? will people always end up like this if reddit had mods and admins like they do? Sorry if not clear

Voat turned in to an extremist site. I guess reddit did too, but only corporate extremism, which is unfortunately the status-quo culture in mainstream America.

I don't think every site will turn out like reddit. It really comes down to what the admins and mods allow, and I think we've got a really great group of free-thinking people overseeing saidit. People who are more concerned about quality of information than user numbers.

Dare I say it's difficult to keep the servers run with so little money, so you'd want more traffic. I feel soon enough you'll have to make a choice..do you want to welcome more people or cater to the community?
