Mostly private rocketchat/mattermost instances. Lobste.rs is open-source, but the main instance (for tech news) is invite-only. I think the fact that uses tags and not sub-forum, makes it better because it doesn't consist of fractured communities. And because the user-invite tree is transparent, it's harder to pad with sock-puppets.
