I think that that’s fair. I wasn’t trying to feign concern though, I was just putting myself in your shoes and imagining the stress I would feel. But if you’re fine then whatever.
I still stand by my first two points though, not just for you but for anyone. “Don’t feed the trolls” etc.
To you directly, I appreciate how helpful you’ve been to me in the chat, and sorry if this comes across as hoping on the dog-pile.

It’s also worth pointing out that someone with antagonistic feeling towards the users of this site who pays just a bit more than the average troll could really take advantage of you clouds. If someone in bad faith wanted to ruin to site for a day they wouldn’t even have to brigade or vote manipulate because you would do it for them. It’s worth considering how you can protect yourself from the stress/rage of those these battles as well.
... fuck me for trying to have a productive discussion about the sites wellbeing right?

Saying “our” in this context gives me a pretty deep insight into who and where you are on the world. I can’t imagine many of the people bleeding and dying to give the “first world” an image of being advanced are really sold on that same notion.
Nor would I agree that we are at a stage of particularly deep culture. I’ve recently been working through braiding sweetgrass and to compare what we call culture today to anything shared in that book makes me feel incredibly sad.

It’s a tricky balance between quality and quantity. It seems like many of the links shared never really provoke discussion or even voting. And like you’re saying these posts just bury the posts that people actually do engage with. /f/feminism is good albeit sad example of this. Besides the sticky posts there’s only like 4 posts on the first two pages with any comments at all.

:( I feel for you ziq. And know that I see how hard you work on keeping raddle moving along and appreciate it lots. I feel as though we may have gotten some of the negative parts of reddit with regards to all the link-spam.

Cross-compatibility in platforms, fine grain content preferences, solid privacy settings and access through tor. Just to name a few. I’m sure there’s even more but I’m also fairly new to it.

Well, it depends on what you'd like to get out of it. There's loads that can be done in terms of social networking potential. I see it's potential and I've really been motivated to do this project by that potential. I think the user base is a lot cooler than other platforms too.
