Reddit it is choc full of 'people' who have unrealistically human views now. So, so many of the people leaving comments are so pro-establishment that I'm always left wondering - Why haven't I met you in real life? You know? Not even my grandparents hold views like much of Reddit supposedly does.

Totally compromised website.

I agree, and hope there is enough critical threshold going here to spur some transfers of the non-faux folks. I don't really even bother to post much over there anymore. It's utterly useless because they don't seem real, or are NOT out to debate/convince but attack and scream loudly over you, while magic down votes come in unorganically.

attack and scream loudly over you

I've found the same thing. And funnily enough just this morning I was watching a years old news thing about government computers being used as sockpuppets way, way back - '05 after Katrina, when people were critical of the government's (lack of) response. So it turns out a favourite tactic of these goons was being extremely verbally insulting.

When you've got no argument to defend, I guess the only thing you can do is attack.

We totally agree with you, which is why the main criteria for banning people on this website is that they regularly drag discussion down on the "hierarchy of debate":

If people regularly drag discussion up the pyramid, they are highly valued on saidit. We're looking forward to seeing more non-faux reddit migrants over the coming weeks and months.

Yeah, the virtue signalling is out of control, I like the way you worded it: unrealistically human. Such a great way of putting it.
