    I don't think the Democrats support him as much as they did back in 2015-2016.

    Plus, he's incredibly old by now. Even if elected, his presidency would start near age 80.

    His health would be 'the elephant in the room' for his whole term.

    Completely agree. Obviously, coming from reddit, I hate the fact that they want me to swallow the new reddit.

    Old format is great. I have RES and it works like a charm. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Reddit is becoming more Facebook-like every day and that really sucks.

    Hopefully changes here will be implemented in a more seamless fashion, and yes, for the sake of simplicity, keep this site as it is for as long as possible.

    As much as I love Rocket League, Psyonix need to do something about their servers. I own it both on Steam and Nintendo Switch, and the latter is a nightmare to play online.

    The best I've read this year is Shimon Peres' autobiography, No Room for Small Dreams. Really insightful how a kid who escaped the Nazis in WWII Poland helped shape a new country.

    I don't think this site, especially being at an alpha stage, is what I need to ditch reddit.

    Reddit is still pretty big and has lots of wonderful content.

    In the past couple of year's, especially since the whole Ellen Pao scandal, content and moderation IMHO has stagnated or declined at an accelerated pace.

    Reddit has become very mainstream and the influx of new users with poor content and terrible moderation (and double standards from the admins) makes Reddit the 'new Facebook'.

    Hopefully a nice initiative like tildes will take over reddit, at least in my personal needs, soon. Really looking forward to this new project.
