THIS IS (not) REEEEEDDIIIIIIIT!

Damn it. I keep wanting to upvote people's posts, but I can't. :evil:
Reading posts on the xkcd forum makes me feel stupid.

I dislikes upvote. With those people post to be popular and to be agreed with, not to discuss or debate. Enough masks are worn in real life as is.

Personaless systems such as 4chan seem superior in my opinion; shame the userbase severely worsened over the years.

Fora are a decent middle ground.

edit: Downvotes!? Really!?!

Of course it isn't reddit. If it were, you'd keep wanting to murder people for posting such total bullshit.

Not to mention a when a system like that promotes comments that are made just to be popular, only the popular voices get heard.

reddit is a "hey check this cool thing" site where people more or less agree on certain standards of content, and whatever is above them is shared and supported; discussion is secondary, I believe. That's why it's called "the front page of the internet". More of a content hub than a forum.

Just a quick thought, but it would be nice if you could upvote/downvote a post and only the poster can see the stats (Possibly allow the person to choose whether accept upvotes/downvotes, being disabled by default). Sometimes I'd like to acknowledge something, but don't feel it's worth the post space. Just posting, "I agree" is almost a negative thing given input to space/time taken ratio.

The text is nigh unreadable. You could make it smaller, spread it out towards the dark areas, and make it brighter.

DAE like the Ronpaul?

Drugs are awesome have no side effects and cure cancer, by the way. They totally should be made legal.

Also is anyone else stuck in the friend zone? Fucking bitches won't date me even if I'm really nice to them.

The reddit community is incredibly superior and intelligent, don't you agree?

If this is our measure, I am pretty sure this is reddit.
