  1. Remember when I said that digg sucked? that was around 2006. Yet, somehow Digg has remained somewhat tolerable compared to the alternative that was touted as something better: Reddit.

    Reddit and Digg seemed to be the same kind of setup with the same NEWS AND CULTURE topics, but Reddit allowed people to make their own categories and allowed boobs. The quality of the comments and posts were somewhat better at Reddit than Digg, but now that trend has reversed: Whereas Digg.com has gotten better in the "Actual content" department, Reddit has fallen to a pointless nut-filled mob of sheep that post bullshit like "BACON RULES". Reddit also has a section called "AskReddit", where a user was to ask a question and let the community comment and try to answer it. That's been lost somehow, and has spread across the site to just be a "I THINK THAT *insert subject here* is *opinion on subject*, VOTE ME UP IF YOU AGREE". A person doesn'e even have to post an article or a link, just his little rant or opinion and everyone comments on it. That's not news, that's bullshit. Reddit is not for news anymore. Reddit makes Slashdot look like CNN. That's how bad it is.

    How bad is this shit? If you were in #zdoom you got to see this:

    Obesity is due to diet. There are no obese people in Ethiopia, there are no people getting obese in Ethiopia. It's as simple as that, caloric intake. Why is it that no one has the balls to take this stance? That it is wildly politically incorrect to place the blame on those EATING too much?


    No fat people in Ethiopia? Man, Who needs facts when we have Reddit? Of course the best part is that this kind of topic attracted the meatheads like moths to a flame:

    "Fuck counting calories. If you eat healthy to begin with you can stuff your face all fucking day and night and still never touch obscene calorie numbers."

    "Look it just boils down to this. Is the food convenient? Is the food not natural (processed meat, chemical cheese, no expiration date)? Is the food from a restaurant? Does the food have some huge fucking brand name associated with it (Nabisco, Kraft, Coca Cola, etc). Then stop buying it. Most healthy food doesn't need a brand. It doesn't matter who makes your green beans, your chicken, and pineapple folks."

    "And quit giving in to friends and family dragging you to shit holes that make you fatter. If they care about you and your health they'll respect your decision, if not? Fuck em."

    "And yes, fuck your friends. And yes, your family too. If people do not care about your well being and your health, then they don't care about you. It really is that simple."

    "People always want an excuse for their failure, which is why we have these folks blaming their genetics for what is the fault of their lifestyle. Personal responsibility seems to be almost taboo in this country, especially with the inspiration of a government which just hands out money to flailing corporations."


    Look I understand that It's well accepted to most that reduced physical activity and fast food are linked to obesity. But evidence that these are the main causes is, quite frankly, bullshit.

    A look at the front page right now at 4:21 PM CDT gives us these wonderful articles:

    • Time doesn't exist and the universe isn't really expanding, says physicist Julian Barbour. Both are illusions.
    • Am I the only one sick of music downloaders acting like they are crusaders for the greater good? I love music. I don't like paying for it. I steal it. Simple as that. I am no hero. Those that want to protect their investments are not Nazis.
    • Why aren't the religious right fighting tooth and nail for the Public Option? I mean, they go ape shit all over protecting the life of a fetus; why not the life of a full grown human?
    • Orthodox Islamic school treats Dutch teachers who are not Muslims as inferior beings. They have to have their meals separately, cannot be greeted in the same way as Muslims, and must teach that Christianity will be abolished. (this story was found to be bullshit)
    • Cutting edge features in Snow Leopard! Now with more reliable disk eject
    • I'm wondering, who on reddit is the oldest virgin?
    • TMZ is reporting on Sears selling a baby cooking grill. I hope you are proud of yourselves.
    Digg.com's frontpage has this:
    • Obama to Nominate Bernanke to 2nd Term as Fed Chief
    • Australians Develop World's Most Efficient Solar Cell
    • New Research Examines How Career Dreams Die
    • Global starvation imminent as US faces crop failure
    • Google Maps Adds Traffic Conditions to Major Roads
    Still shitty, but Digg.com wins by a mile.

    That's just sad. Really. I'm considering leaving all "Web 2.0" news "portal" sites like these altogether. They're obviously biased and packed with trolls.


    Like FOX News.

      Reddit is still better than Digg. Don't like something? Use the downmod arrow.
