    I was largely in it for non-toxic discussion. You could have an exchange of opinions instead of shouting matches. But that was a long time ago.

    Everything is always better with a bit of scotch.

    Don't say the m-word, it will probably make the admins cry ;-)

    I think a lot of it is due to them hiring a lot of people who are primarily corporate people, rather than redditors.

    Years ago, reddit would announce that they were hiring on reddit, hiring members of the community capable of filling a role. A vacancy was basically filled by a post like this: http://www.redditblog.com/2010/08/reddit-is-hiring.html Now it looks like this: https://jobs.lever.co/reddit/3a6a4e70-4649-41be-9d94-f4e58a44d8d5 (I would recommend against applying, by the way. I hear the work environment isn't all that for some reason or another...)

    Looking at the team-page now, there's hardly a handful of community-people left, and a whole lot of users that have a "Verified email" or "One-year club" badges, only having signed up after getting a job (or if they were savvy, having signed up prior to applying for a job).

    Once upon a time, the site was run by people who were lucky enough to have reddit as a full time job. Now it's a bunch of people who are trying to find out how to make money from the couple of millions of pairs of eyeballs that look at their site every day.

    It will blow over. Reddit will remain in some form or fashion. Look at the front page of reddit in private mode. Around 25% of the content is back to normal. Of course, it's from "smaller" subs like /r/aww or /r/mildyinteresting while the bigger subs like /r/pics and /r/funny is still getting user backlash from having turned on the lights again.

    But three days from now, it'll be back to what it was in the past. Only with fewer users around.

    Still, it's falling apart mid-summer.

    They'll get an influx of new users, who will not have known the old reddit. Only that there was a lot of noise when they first joined, and then nothing changed as far as they see it.

    Doing a lot of things right, though. For instance, /t/football is the one dedicated to kicking a ball with your feet, while /t/nfl is the one for American Kevlar-Rugby. Also, if you build it, they will come. Surely.
