A mindless cesspool of people doing circlejerk memes and topics like r/politics or r/atheism and many people make rather unfunny memes or jokes that are only funny if you have a low IQ. The community is toxic and there has been rising tensions for the political subreddits and honestly it is not an intellectual safe haven, it is like a neutered 4chan and will drive you crazy over the stupidity of reddit users and their stupid threads.
Reddit user 1: Haha Donald Trump is a wacko!
Reddit user 2: Nuh uh, crooked hillary is!
Reddit user 3: religion is for dumb dumbs
Reddit user 4: atheist are pretentious cunts

A social media sharing website that is so bad on user friendliness that you have to put yourself in some kind of mental prison just to survive. The only notable good thing about it is the ability to stay anonymous (and some decently good sub). And default reddit group moderators are the worst.

Steve Hoffman and Alexis Ohanian have turned this website into an incompetent mess of a circle-jerk cesspool.

Random redditor #2: What a Karma Whore!
Random redditor #1 fights with Random redditor #2.
Average internet user: See, this is why redditors are losers in life.

Reddit is the biggest circlejerk there is. People with like-minded opinions enter subreddits and circlejerk each other to death

A user generated web 2.0 news website with a lefty, libertarian and geek slant. Tends to be slightly more upmarket than its larger competitor digg. The comment system at reddit actually works unlike the broken system over on digg. This results in (usually) more intelligent conversations. One issue with Reddit is that a number of users have installed bots which automatically down vote or up vote specific topics. In 2007, it was known for its support of Ron Paul (and then later Obama), its anger at George W Bush and Cheney and its opposition to the invasion of Iraq and its opposition to any potential attack on Iran. Reddit users are also overwhelming against organized religion be it Christian, the Cult of Scientology, Islam or Judaism.

One annoying or endearing feature of reddit that is also unique is "theme" usernames who behavior in stereotyped fashions usually occuring to their chosen username (eg. CAPTAIN_OBVIOUS.) These can be fun, but they usually wear pretty thin after a few days.

In general, reddit is a smart forum than digg, although everyone is always saying that slowly reddit is becoming digg while digg is becoming 4chan.
Typical reddit postings:

Vote up if you want George W Bush impeached!
