Getting Fed Up with Reddit.com

February 8th, 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

I am gradually getting more and more fed up with reddit.com

It’s becoming a nasty quagmire of stupid posts. When I first started watching it, it was full of links to useful, well written technical posts. Now it’s just white noise.

A little while ago every other post seemed to contain the name “Obama“, which is incredibly annoying for people who don’t live in the U.S., so I spent ages voting all these posts down – fortunately, this appears to have worked – but if, like me, you use the RSS feed, and don’t visit the website, it’s pain to have to do this all the time.

Now, all it contains are links to pictures, movies, and posts which have insanely long, essay like, titles that I just cannot be arsed to read.

What is incredibly annoying is that everyone disagrees with each other over whether these things are good or not – exactly what the up-down voting is aimed to solve, but still they appear.

What’s also really annoying is the short amount of time that you remained logged in for – I am always having to log back in, because my RSS feed fails to parse because I’ve been logged out, and I received an HTML error, instead of RSS.

Getting very fed up with it. Going to stop watching.
