I don't even remember my old digg username. Spent so damn much time there back in the day, but then they shit the bed the same way reddit is shitting the bed now.

Redesign 2.0 flop: check

Overzealous Moderation: check

Paid promoted content masquerading as organic content: check

Bury brigade of Ron Paul? Could you explain some? I was super active in 08 election. Worked hard for Ron. Back then I was on ronpaulforums and dailypaul.

Yes, I'm also curious about this censorship long before the first great meme war. I got red pilled by the Ron Paul revolution, but didn't fuck with Reddit till thedonald

The Ron Paul movement is what first opened my eyes to how crooked the media and the political establishment are. I told the GOP I would never vote for them, ever, after the way they treated Ron Paul...but here were are. What a time to be alive!

Ross Perot was my first Red Pill, Ron Paul was our first chance. We had to wait a couple of years but we may have the best of both Worlds.

You're gonna want to reach outside of this new found glorious land still my freind. It helps both for taking the measurements of the machine that is dredging against you and for shit posting in general. I would suggest voat.co if you are tough enough and keeping an eye on reddit's more left leaning submissives, like politics, news, and generally whatever comes up in /all. Dont be afraid to call them out as the cowards they are. User names are a dime a dozen.

Ahh, Digg and Ron Paul. Ron Paul got me to stop being an armchair commentary, become a precinct committeeman, state committeeman, and state delegate. The red pill of seeing how Arizona "Republicans" handled the nomination, I will never forget.

I think the same formula applied here that makes it fun (and seriously addictive) - should be applied to any future subs if / when they appear.

Reddit (and pretty much everywhere else) is so toxic, it'd be nice if topics of interest had light rules to encourage 'fun' vs becoming competitive hateboxes. I mean criticism is fine, but constructive criticism is better.
