    It’s been pretty stable and usable.

    But has there been an increase in hiveminded threads and trolling?

    At first it felt like dissenting opinions would lead to an informative discussion, but more and more having an unpopular opinion - or just stepping into the wrong thread - means someone resorting to insulting your mom. Ok, thanks Xbox live gamer.

      Yeah I’ve felt that.

      If your not joining the side the article or post is aiming to engage in, you get downvoted hard, even if you are correct.

      I got nuked twice for correcting a fact which lessened the outrage the article posted was eliciting. Annoying, but could be worse.

        Votes are unimportant, and the sooner you stop caring about them the easier it is to interact on the site without feeling attacked.

        Is it satisfying to see a big number next to your comment? Sure, but the more you think of it as just talking with people even if you ultimately disagree it’s a healthier environment.

      Yeah, a not-insubstantial portion of Lemmy users are people who were banned from Reddit and unwilling/unable to adjust behavior to different communities. Good mod/admins should alleviate this over time hopefully.
