      Yeah I posted this 2 years ago. The way “Active” sorting works in Lemmy, is you see the posts with recent comments. Someone commented on this, pushing it back to the front page.

      Absolutely crazy how a 2 year old post can pop up sorting by hot. It is funny how relevant it is now though.

      Oh wtf, you opened my eyes here. Its interesting how these 2 year old comments are still relevant especially now.

      All comments are 2 years old as well.

      There must have been a glitch. In time. 2 years have passed since we opened the comment page.

      That might become an unfortunate but inevitable result of any English-language site that’s large enough, since by the numbers Americans make up a plurality (and possibly a majority) of the English-speaking world. It might be that the only counter to that is moderation and local site culture.

      I can understand why it would annoy people, but it always felt like it was targeted towards Americans in the first place. Especially with Reddit being an American based company.

      Holy heck, didnt realize this comment was 2 years old. Sorry for the necro!

        This is what annoys me most about Lemmy. It’s way too eager to pull up old posts. I also came in here forgetting to check the timestamp.

          Hey, this thread is about what annoys you the most about reddit, not lemmy!

          spoiler

          But seriously, perhaps it’s because there’s not that much content here yet so it’s pulling whatever it can.

        Being one of the original commenters from way back when, I think you’ll find I’m not sorry for the necro :D

        I think some people will find this contentious but I always felt that Reddit’s 6 month policy was pretty arbitrary. Humanity has had arguments that have been resolved and resurrected or existed perpetually repeatedly over millennia (religion and forms of government are perfect examples). In a way, perpetual posts are actually more beneficial because they can be reviewed and built on over time, allowing us to better approach something resembling truth publicly and for all to see. Plus, probably saves server space too if it reduces the rehashing of arguments.

    When there’s a subreddit about something you’re interested in, but it’s run by mods who enforce a extensive collection of esoteric posting rules.

    We’re sorry, but you’ve posted about Topic C on a Wednesday, which is strictly prohibited. Discussion of Topic C is only allowed in the megathread which is only open for comments on the first Saturday of odd numbered months. Didn’t you read our rules?

      also, you need 1 million karma to post and your account must be 100 years old. oh and you’re shadowbanned in that sub, so nobody can see your posts, because a mod once read an unrelated comment you wrote in a different sub and didn’t like it.

    How the userbase is constantly bombarding the site with alternate versions of the same meme. Everything just feels so try-hard.

    For me it’s how explicitly for-profit it has become. This manifests in a lot of things like:

    • rampant advertisements
    • dark patterns to get the users hooked
    • you literally cannot use the mobile site because it nudges you to install the app at all times
    • new UI is garbage
    • misinformation is freely allowed to fester to not drive down revenue

    It has pretty much become like Facebook and it really sucks.

    • Closed source (honestly, I’d rather not know what the redesign of Reddit is made of…)
    • It’s annoying, slow and tedious
    • Works better in Chrome™ (I can’t even scroll down the website properly with Firefox)
    • Harmful business model (Reddit Premium, Reddit Coins, pay-to-win-karma…)
    • It’s a JavaScript powered website (not recommended for low-end machines)
    • Communities are full of racists, homophobes, sexists, xenophobes…
    • The use of sensationalist headlines is promoted to gain karma
    • Is the ideal site for alt-right and conspiracy theories apologists
    • Leftist/Communist/ML/MLM userbase is discriminated and censored everyday
    • Reddit moderators are terrible (most of them)
    • Dark patterns everywhere
    • They block Tor users
    • (I can think of many more but need I go on?)

        Yeah, maybe OP has something to do with them? They teach to stay away from MLM everywhere, it’s not just reddit. And that’s positive, because it’s a scam

          MLM in this case refers to Marxism-Leninism-Maoism or Marxism-Leninism-Mao Zedong Thought, not Multi-Level Marketing.
