So i'm not sure if this belongs here but I'll post it anyway. So on reddit one time I said something that was controversial, and I got downvoted into oblivion and of course people replied saying that my opinion was wrong etc.
Every subreddit is such an echo chamber it's ridiculous.
/r/pcmasterrace is full of AMD fanboys and I said something that was related to intel(they all hate intel) and got downvoted to -40 points.
/r/assholedesign is full of retards who will downvote you if you post something that they don't agree with and reply saying something very bad, just because you posted it there like I was once called a 'spoiled brat' for posting about the xbox one's awful interface.
Most of the big subreddits have gone downhill massively and people do not know the purpose of the downvote button, they just use it if they disagree with someone but it is supposed to be for if the comment doesn't add anything to the discussion, like if someone replied to this post saying 'cool story' or something like that. But it's even better to have no downvote button at all.
The bans are just insane, just say something slightly controversial and boom, banned.
Most of the big subreddits are echo chambers and have strict rules and stuff and if you break any of them, banned.
I'm so glad Saidit exists, thank you guys.
Edit: I changed the words of a few sentences just to make it clearer.
