I’ve been here (well, ‘here’) for 7 years because this is the best-moderated generalist discussion forum on the internet, with the highest standard of writing and a generally friendly and polite audience who have many interesting stories and experiences to share. When something interesting happens in the world, you’re the people whose opinions I’m interested to hear about it.

I do wish that there were more of the principled and well-read leftists open to opposing views that I’ve met in real life here. They seem to be in short supply online. I also opposed the move from Reddit because I think it makes new user acquisition extremely difficult. There may be room for the gentle dissuasion of single-issue topic warriors, if only because it gets boring having the same arguments over and over again. Still, these are relatively minor complaints.
