      Lemmy is Reddit, but better. It's open source, and every instances can be independent OR federated, the moderation is one of the most POWERFUL out of all the federated software (the instance where the content is created can moderate and this will be moderated everywhere, and each instance that federate it can also moderate it for itself. There is just nothing comparable.

      gabru Reddit no longer is open source and is centralized. It has fallen prey to the goal of 'maximizing user engagement', rather than creating a truly democratic community. Lemmy fixes that by being open source, decentralized, and therefore necessarily about *democratic content aggregation*. Additionally, the users in Lemmy are generally highly educated, by which I mean they're well read in politics, are tech savvy, and are kind. There's also dank memes, of course.

      Most users think 4chan is a great alternative to Reddit.
      reddit tbh i thnk the website is pretty clever likete idea of having a board and also there being no sign up system makes it a mystery if a user is the same person or someone else and tbh its good now the only 2 bad thing is that 1 you can get banned even if you did nothing wrong and 2 theres no sign up system

      I love that I can use it without having to install an app. I'm sick and tired of companies ruining great communities with forced apps. I hope this site dethrones reddit and teaches them a lesson.

      pro_liberty The level of conversation is much higher, without insults or censorship. The site owners are not partnered with advertisers, so they don't have other allegiances. The site function is very familiar since it's based on the open source Reddit code.

      niezniszczalny It has good discussion because of no downvotes, turns out they are unnecessary + they allow brigading. Also, discussion is peaceful without anybody being angry on being downvoted.

    9. Quora.com is a question/answer service allowing users to pose questions that other users can answer, each question and answer can have comments, each users can write one individual answer and there can be a summary answer.
      Quora vs Reddit opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Quora is still a legitimate alternative to Reddit, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      Quora might not have all of Reddit's features and versatility, but many people use Reddit as just a Q&A site. For that purpose, Quora is a good alternative.

      tihedomecu Quora is a pro LTTE terrorist site. they have a large number of pro LTTE individuals who attack sri lanka while openly displaying the flag of a banned terrorist organization (banned By both US, and UK). Also when you visit quora from sri lanka, the you are automatically redirected to the tamil language page instead of the english page. Majority of people in sri lanka don't use tamil, but sinhalese.
