Honestly, would be nice to just have a platform without any left/right nuthousery.

That's why I'm on Reddit more than ever. It's here, but it's not as disruptive as on other platforms.

FB I still use just to keep up with people I actually know.

If you don’t think the political nuthousery isn’t disruptive on here then boy do I have a bridge to sell you

IMO, it's easier to avoid here than on FB comment sections, Twitter threads, etc.

Personal preference, I'm sure.

It can be a bit of an echo chamber, not just in terms of politics, but you do fairly regularly see people with either a valid question or even an unexpected (and possibly not well liked) correct answer get downvoted into oblivion.

However at least it doesn't outright promote controversial content.

Did worry a bit when I recently got invited to do a reddit survey and there were a bunch of questions about discovering new content/subs. I sincerely hope we don't end up with r/all or trending new subs being forced into our regular home page.
