Forgot password no longer working, seems like they switched the function for now. Step in right direction.


I have been on both communities for years now and I can say that when Digg's intellectualism declined there was no way for people to avoid it but to emigrate. However when it declined on Reddit the structure of sub-reddits and how you can unsubscribe from sub-reddits helped a lot. Digg might have implemented this over time but it is too late.


You can avoid much of the stupidity on Reddit by unsubscribing from a few top reddits - pics, funny, etc.

And yes, the fact that you can subscribe to specific reddits ensures that the level of discussion always remains above par.
