Reddit is the worst, most blinded echo chamber I've ever taken place in. They refuse to even hear an argument from any side but their own, and if you try to give them sense, they down vote you to non-existence. It's pathetic
@gdr yeah that's true, I haven't really been on Mastodon long enough to experience all the dark sides, but at least people here seem to try to have an open mind
@drumsetmonkey I'm not very active in either Mastodon or Reddit so I don't see most dramas. But it seems that Mastodon attracts people with radical political views and the "nazis/commies" fight is very much visible. I haven't seen this in such magnitude anywhere else, except maybe the comments section of local online newspapers.
@drumsetmonkey that's why I stay off of the popular subs and participate in discussions with the smaller, more niche communities.
@jwkicklighter yeah that's why I've started reading through /r/neutralpolitics more, because since each comment is required to have at least one source, everything is a lot more neutral and discussion based
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
