, but full of idiots. The comments section on any picture is disturbingly similar to the comments section on an /r/circlejerk post. Instead of having meaningful discussions like Reddit, they spend all day looking at cats
, reading sob stories that are obviously bullshit, posting selfies, and posting albums about how much of an asshole their boyfriend was today, comprised entirely of irrelevant Disney gifs. Again, these stories are obviously bullshit.
The comments section is a mess. Imgur is similar to Reddit in that they downvote any opinion that does not agree with their own. As such, most of the top comments are something along the lines of "+1, I laughed!", "+1 for Game of Thrones
/funny word that you used in the post everyone else read!", "I genuinely chortled (a word imgur loves to use) out loud, good sir/madam, have my upvote!", "To the front page with you!" and much, much more. A good amount of posts on imgur are reposts
, and most of the comments are.
Imgur was created to host Reddit's pictures, but later someone decided to give it it's own community that can post their own pictures. User sub was born: A shithole that most of the sob stories/selfies/disney gif stories/Tom Hiddleston fangirl posts come from. People that browse it like to think they're special because of it, but they're not.
In short, it's a horrible site with horrible people and the only reason I still go there is when I want to see pictures from Reddit.
Stick to Reddit.
