This is a little said, tbh. They're trying to make reddit seem more like a community, and less like modern Usenet. But reddit has been bad for community, it's a bunch of echo chambers where people learn how to become even more intransigent in their beliefs. Subs like T_D, SRS, Conservative and many others are self described as safe spaces for people with a given mind set, and you will literally be banned for disagreeing with the prevailing philosophy. People are thinking "I must be correct, nobody disagrees with me", conveniently forgetting that they kicked all the nay sayers out of the village a long time ago. And now reddit wants to double down, they want to give their destructive platform a veneer of legitimacy as a "community" where ideas are exchanged.

kicked all the naysayers out

Reddit in a nutshell. Even the freespeech sub banned people (idk why though)

The Donald is a sub specifically for supporting Donald Trump. I know you know this. It is not a sub where you are going to get anti-Trump discussion.

If you really wanted to prove your point about safe spaces, you would have brought up the_mueller, politics, worldnews, socialism, etc...You have an agenda.

a sub specifically for supporting

I use RES, so I rarely see any of these changes they make.

O_o

Something about this concerns me; it feels like a detrimental descent, but it's hard to vocalise why.

…I guess it solidifies subreddits into tribalistic groups?

Do you have a link about this?

In preferences uncheck "Use the redesign as my default experience"

Yeah, I know. The problem is, Some people, like the ones checking out the site before advertising, wont.

Joining to the downfall of Reddit... I see what they meant.

Oh, I didn't notice since I only use old reddit.
