I like how wholesome this community is. I haven't seen any trolls or anything even close to those Twitter flame-wars. I've always felt that every social media platform has its own personality, and I really love Subreply's. Or perhaps it's because there's only a handful of people here and a social network is doomed to be toxic as it gains popularity.
Yes, there is a tipping somewhere in social discourse from book-club -> peers-conference -> concert --> mob. There is diversity and low echo-chamber effect here and that's appreciated.
"Diversity and low echo-chamber effect" - that really describes this community. Almost seems impossible for the two to exist together, and yet here we are.
