Is 4chan or reddit worse?

Anonymous 255743

Reddit. At least 4channers display their true nature

Anonymous 255744

Honestly at this point it is the same platform to me. There's a big intersection in user base and 4chan is far from being the "uncensored" place it claims to be. Try saying anything negative about trannies on 4chan, for example.

Anonymous 255746

they're both pretty awful, but if i had to be stuck in a room with one i'd rather be stuck in a room with an irritating polyamorous liberal redditor, than a rancorous screeching poltard. they're probably the same level of porn-addled, though.

Anonymous 255747

4chan. Reddit has a lot of normal people too among the freaks, but 4chan is full of society's dregs and maybe 1% sane people.

Anonymous 255752

Both are awful but I agree with >>255746 that poltards are too much.
I like anime and used 4chan for years, boards like /cm/ and /w/ are favorites, but the political leak is too much and several boards I used to like such as /co/ became unusable after 2016. Never used Reddit but I'm under the impression it's much more normie so I guess I'd rather deal with that.

Anonymous 255754

The problem with 4chan is the most popular board by far is /pol/. Which is mostly teenagers being manipulated by older psycho adults. Not really much fun anymore except gor sometimes. Every other board is dead and moderated by actual redditors. Lots of discord/reddit groups been pushing agendas on 4chan for years. Too many jannies and mods power tripping. Its a shadow of its former self.

Anonymous 255757

If you're looking to get away from trannies, neither is better than the other for that. "Liberal" Reddit trannies are just moonlighting 4channers. Can confirm this from TIMs I've known.

>any conversation on /a/ that isn't about shounen anime gets shat up to hell
>/a/ had been even more unusable because retards have been screeching about more female lead characters in shows and more Yuri anime coming out
>Can't talk about video games for obvious reasons, it's even worse with all the politics and Twitter posting
>Things that pander toward women gets firebombed by scrotes that screech gay and how women shouldn't be allowed to like things

It's even weirder I've seen anons get banned for saying they like women and get demonized by other posters for being a "simp" or something retarded. Not to mention the entire site feels like it's perpetually asshurt when anons see other people enjoy shit

It's insane

The updoot and downdoot system on Reddit is so awful, it is so subject to botting and manual brigading of outside groups to control the appearance of social consensus, I won't forget how they took away visibility of the actual exact amount of doots during gamergate because everyone was noticing posts that started gaining traction suddenly thousands of downvotes in less than an hour when that couldn't have even been possible based on the amount of users that were on subreddit at the time.

Anonymous 255764


They took down TiA. One of the only subreddits left calling out their BS.

They took down japancirclejerk, because I guess they couldn't stand being exposed as creepy weebs with an Asian fetish.

They took down waterniggas, which was literally just a wholesome subreddit to encourage people to drink water.

I don't know if troons were involved in the last two, but I wouldn't be surprised anymore. The whole internet is a troon playground. They permanently scrub anything off the internet that exposes them.

4chan has absolutely no value at this point.
/pol/tards are pretty much the worst type of internet user by far, and that's ALL 4chan users at this point.
Not just banning misanthropic nazi manbabies and instead trying to give them a containment board was moot's biggest mistake.
The media boards are just culture war boards now. The social boards are just incel boards now, and the hobby boards are just "what product pisses of the jews more" boards now.
You can't talk about anything without trannies posting bait and then /pol/tards throwing a fit at it.

Reddit is still worse however, for one simple reason, and that's bots. Reddit is basically a website built off of astroturfed dead internet bullshit and actual people are becoming rarer and rarer (and the one's still there, pathetically buy into what bots drill into their heads). It's disturbing seeing the front page and realizing everything there was paid to be there, and people just pay no mind to it. It's a lot harder (and more pointless) to do that on 4chan so you don't see it nearly as much.

Reddit isn't that bad if you stay away from large default subreddits and everything even remotely political. The more niche the topic, the better. Non-English subreddits tend to be less cancerous as well from my experience, but may or may not have powertripping mods.

I don't understand this type of comment. You control what you see on Reddit, you don't just get fed by an algorithm. Don't subscribe to related subreddits and you will very rarely if ever see anything related to identity politics, unless you actively go out looking for it.

Reddit mods can be complete idiots. A few months ago, thousands of subreddits tried to join together and made themselves private till their demands were met, but the CEO intervened and threatened to demod them so they got scared of losing their power and withdrew their strike, and that's it. None of their demands got met. Some did say fuck it and decided to leave reddit altogether though, but most didn't want to give up their power.

I hate reddit.

>You control what you see on Reddit, you don't just get fed by an algorithm.
That doesn't seem to be the case anymore.
Reddit, especially the new layout now, shoves advertisements and "suggested" threads for every 10 or so post that you scroll past.

Trannies seek validation therefore they flock to /pol/ and similar opposing places like moth to street lights

Anonymous 255933


It's like a homophobe ending up being a homosexual himself, or a taut conservative who bashes democrats for "coming for our children" ending up being a pedophile himself. There's some sort of projection going on beneath all that trannybashing at /pol/. Some trannies in denial also adopt a hypermasculine fascist or an extremely regressive religious ideology, but it eventually fails once their egg cracks.

It's a defense mechanism called Reaction Formation.
It doesn't happen all the time though and I don't mean that all trannyhates are secretly trannies themselves, but many such cases.

Man I used to think 4chan was the best but now all it's good for is leaked content. Any other discussion on 4chan is generally pointless because everyone expects you to be a fellow scrote. Reddit is worse in the sense that it thrives on mobthink, but it also has a lot more useful information and often times random misogynistic opinions in unrelated hobby subreddits get downvoted to hell and back as they deserve.

That all said, nonas. What the fuck happened to /cgl/? Why did coomers and trannies take over the one board that at least seemed half-female? Did everyone decide to just go to lolcow and public social media instead?

I miss /cgl/ when it was good. I miss the /cgl/ cringe threads before the word "cringe" started bleeding into mainstream and lost its real meaning.

Anonymous 256160

I want to mention an important point: reddit contributes to your digital footprint, where 4chan doesn't nearly as much.
On reddit I've had people judge me for my post history and even in non-offensive contexts it's still creepy to me.
On 4chan I've had fun slinging shit with trolls and being an idiot in general with no repercussions and no one to judge after the fact.

Reddit just feels more dangerous to me. It's easy to forget there aren't people eager to find any slither of information to attack you. I've seen people act like smug assholes with a superiority complex on the same account they're wondering why their friends ghosted them. What's worse, you can see that stuff even after it's deleted. At least 4chan doesn't make you this trackable, just don't reuse filenames and avoid connecting contact info you mention there to your other identities.

Anonymous 256163


> Reddit, especially the new layout now, shoves advertisements and "suggested" threads for every 10 or so post that you scroll past.
This is true by the way. Personal preference, but 4chan doesn't try to change its layout every few years and I prefer that. At most they just added new functionality. While the newest redesign reddit tries to push (without the possibility to opt out btw) is just absolute cancer compared to the old new one. I have no desire to look at this for longer than 10 seconds.

I feel like google or other search engine these days are all polluted with clickbaits like "you won't believe what happens if you try X" and sanitized articles that ask you to consult a doctor and that you have cancer when I try to look up for something.
The only way I can get answers to my questions written by breathing human beings is if I search "x y z reddit" or "x y z quora" but answers at quora are from 5 or so years ago. Reddit has completely destroyed the idea of forums that existed in the past. I bet the SEO analysts have started to exploit this + reddit exploit too.

I'm even considering creating an account at reddit now because of how sanitized the internet has become. So what if I'm a faggot, lol.

Apps for browsing reddit used to be good until reddit decided to monetize it. The strike was supposed to be a response to this but reddit chose to give zero fucks about it. Now you have to pay for these services. Greedy corporates.

Anonymous 256327

Your problem is that you believe reddit is a viable option for you rather than a convenient or now one that happens to be inconvienent because of their changes. Reddit has been shit for a decade now, and corporate thinking played into it starting from the beginning of them turning to shit. Their strike was powerless from inception since reddit plebs are consumerists and as such they won't alter their consuming behavior.

You still can do it. You just have to avoid the cancer boards or learn to filter out decent threads on them. Honestly though, I don't think it has ever been much better.
10-15 years ago (god, I'm old) people would do crap like greentexting your own point back at you and that was enough to derail entire threads. There were also less mods. You could go to /v/ and virtually all of it were atheism/Obama/vegan/venting discussions.

Actually, now that I think about it, it did use to be much more left-leaning and I'd take those old offtopic threads over insane rightoid psychos claiming that every minor inconvenience in their lives os jews trying to genocide them

Depends which board and subreddit I'm forced to pick between tbh, any major board is beat out by any minor/niche subreddit and vice versa. However, if we're picking between something like /pol/ vs. r/politics, definitely 4chan any day. I'd rather have some sane humans in the sea of retards, trolls, and psyops vs an army brainwashed subhumans who obey the "Only Acceptable Opinions" of mods/admins/general public to the last word.

well i will say my part about this

reddit needs accounts which leads to creeps invalidating your input based on your history, reddit also has updoots which invalidate your input based on how "broadly appealing" it is to gain favor among the masses, so only weak generally positive shit is brought up to be seen. reddits quality is kinda shit because of this

4channel every post is equal since its not tied to an identity, its read in chronological order which means nobody gets put above anyone else, every voice is objectively presented, in general the rules are looser so its way more fun to post on 4chan, and the memes are much more fun as a result of the autism shown in there.

i see tranny negative shit every day, i don't understnad the censorship argument, the posts are always there nothing is being silenced.

you dont want to talk to those online

baiting is always a thing online, you will never eliminate it, you cannot single out 4chan for it, it does its best to minimize it
