    I think a huge problem is a growth at all cost motto. People flocked to Facebook/Youtube because they were genuinely good experiences back in their day. Granted Youtube had problems with copyright but even so, it feels like they forever dumbed down the UX. When will people learn to stop changing a good thing?

    I kind of suspect most of society's modern ills are a combination of managerial red tape and being too stubborn to admit it

    Cue a quadrillion negative comments and "Fuck Zuckerberg" on every site that isn't Tildes (only because it tries to foster productive discussion). It's good he wants to work on it. He does have to earn that trust, though, due to everything else that's happened and the grow-at-any-cost model.

    I really want to like HN but their comments are far too argumentative and some people are just too far afield etc. Absolutely everything is a contentious point there.

    I don't really like this habit Tildes has of minimizing comments if someone marks them as 'noise', it's effectively another way of downvoting
