"there isn't a lot to disagree on" is not the way to promote refinement of views and truth-seeking. Democracy benefits from minority opinion.

After spending time on Raddle I really want to find a leftist forum that's more discussion-oriented.

I can appreciate the saying, but what if the thing being said is unclear? Or perhaps it is incomplete or incorrect? I think what makes sites like this interesting is the difference in opinion and experience across the user base.

Sounds good! I've just found out about the site and it just didn't seem very lively. This thread has shown me otherwise :)

There is nothing stopping anyone from creating conversation. If you read an article here ask open ended questions about it to start discussion.

I only speak for myself but it seems that Raddle is more about link sharing than discussion. More gets submitted than the people who regularly read this forum could ever discuss.

I try to comment when I can, but I've been a bit occupied with unemployment.

It's okay we are not a big community. Anyway for me that i was never a heavy reddit user but for some time used twitter, for my information flow, this is normal. Having new posts all day feels more lively than commenting on a couple of posts all day. Peeps here post so many interesting stuff that i spend most of my free surfing time on reading than writing.

People comment on text posts, links seem to get ignored for the most part, there's always so many of them.

I think this is the best explanation so far. A relatively high volume of stuff gets posted and then a few of them will catch a bunch of comments because they're interesting to us for whatever reason.

It's not even always that they need to be interesting, it just takes someone asking a question to get a ton of replies.
