    The problem is that looks like something a 13yo boy would wear and that it doesn't have enough functions. The function I care about most with a wearble is it's ability to track and improve your health: recording stuff as the quality of your sleep, hearbeat etc. You don't need such a large thing around your wist to get that (the Xiaomi mi band that does these things is like 20$ without looking ridiculous.)

    Does Snapzu have any measures in place to prevent power-hungry mods from ruining communities?

    I would consider myself an atheist/agnostic/pantheist, the latter of which is what Stoics are.

    Too bad that my country (the Netherlands) got knocked out, but at least I'm glad that the U.S. made it to the final - which is good for the sport.

    P.s.: Am I the only one that is amazed to find so much attention for this here and in online news in general?

    If they stay then the EU would have to give them additional billions without the legitimacy amongst their constituents to do so. EU politicians have to satisfy their base but this is contrary to what would be best for Greece or even the EU in the long run. Even if they would give those billions, then other countries that have financial troubles (e.g. Spain) would expect something as well. Both these things have already resulted in the EU demanding counter-productive things while giving Greece less than what was needed. On the other hand, the Greeks have been living above what they could afford for over a decade now and getting them out will force them to live with much less means than they have in the past. This would at least enable them to fix a lot of stuff they are currently doing to satisfy the EU's harsh demands.

    Either way, the next 2+ years will be really shitty for Greeks.

    Voat is pretty much a copy of the Reddit stylesheet that feels a bit more fluent and modern. The community, like Snapzu, at least was a lot more friendly compared to Reddit and a lot more diverse (in a somewhat bad way) than Snapzu.

    It had less karmawhoring, askvoat was [serious] by default and you weren't 'late to a thread.' During the days of the fattening it was chaotic, but until the AMAgeddon most of the unwanted crowd went back to Reddit. I really hope and actually expect Voat will get some of the same friendly folk Snapzu is getting. The reason why Voat didn't get friendly folk during the fattening was because of the reason why they were leaving (perceived censorship) - which is different this time. A different type of people are upset and are wanting to leave, so it's too early to say that it seems Snapzu is getting all the friendly folk until we see what people will come to Voat after it gets its servers running.

    It's not really a fair comparison because Voat has been marketed on Reddit far more than Snapzu is. I have seen Voat.co being linked perhaps a dozen times, whereas I have only seen 2 mentions of snapzu - of which both were in a list that included voat and other alternatives. The fact that Snapzu uses an invite only system also helps a lot: teamsnapzu said that without that the site would be crushed within seconds.

    The problem would be that instead of a civil war over slavery there would be a war between the US and Britain so that the US could maintain their right to own slaves. The statement that the American Revolution being a mistake would be true if it meant that Britain could still control the US until it became independant along with Canada. But that is a nitty-picky criticism to what overal is a thought-provoking article.

    I did not vote on the poll. Don't want to skew the results of the people of Reddit.

    We probably skewed the results pretty badly because of this post. I didn't vote for the same reason either, but I want to know what the results were before @baron778 linked to it here.

    It probably depends more on the owners of the site than the UI. If like Reddit Voat is being handed to people who didn't come from within the community and who try monetize the site as much as possible, then yes it will go down the same path.

    That and the fact that Reddit became too large, which I made a post about here: http://snapzu.com/t/lounge/tribepost/M9CQAHV/why-reddit-falling-apart-is-a-good-thing, are two factors that to me are more important than it being a clone.

    I might be putting the following words in your mouth, but you seem to assume Snapzu will be relatively safe from becoming like Digg/ Reddit.

    Thirded and it is not just Snapzu. Going to the other alternatives made me realize how toxic and hostile Reddit had become. Maybe it's because of the difference in size, where Reddit is like a large city where everyone becomes anonymous to subsequently bring the worst out of them. I don't know what it is, but I like it.
