    I think the biggest thing that Hexbear has going for it is that there is a culture here that doesn’t involve pandering to the voting audience.

    Every conversation I have here feels like the other person is genuinely talking to me, not talking to an audience through me but talking to me directly, considering my words and seriously engaging with me even when we might disagree.

    Over on reddit getting a real interaction with someone that doesn’t involve in some way an attempt at pandering to possible voters is nearly impossible. Everything is influenced by the system. Everyone isn’t really talking to each other but instead they talk to the audience.
