> They also skew young and uninformed. Or at least inexperienced with the real world away from their PCs.

It is interesting that you would say this. Do you care to elaborate or is that simply your opinion based solely off of the fact that most redditors disagree with your beliefs?

I would like to invite you to share your beliefs on reddit and allow us to share our beliefs with you. I think you will find that the majority of redditors are both well informed and possessing a plethora of life experiences.

Certainly we have users that are less mature, whether it is because of their age or simply because they are closed minded in regards to their political beliefs. But are you willing to tell me that the members of freerepublic never blindly follow beliefs that might be wrong?

Like ever community we have reasonable and unreasonable members, if we take the time to talk to one another instead of simply dismissing the other side as humours drival we might all learn something.

My brother regularly has me submit links to his comic “Geeks On Caffeine” to reddit.com, and the response from this forum’s readers is overwhelmingly negative.

It’s apparent the problem lies not with the comic itself. The art is excellent and he regularly receives positive remarks from the folks here at FR and through e-mail. No, the problem lies in the fact that the comic is conservative in subject matter and routinely exposes liberals for the frauds they are.

Conversely, comics that are voted up on reddit.com are chock full of sexual material, awash in profanity and skew heavily to liberal beliefs. The jokes thay laud are simplistic, boorish and can be classified as “toilet humor” better than 90% of the time.

While I have no demographics to validate the average reader of reddit.com’s age or political beliefs, it is clear to me through numerous exchanges that they lack maturity in their criticicsm and lack the ability to form cogent arguments.

I continue to submit to reddit.com because it’s a great outlet for exposing geeksoncaffeine.com, but have come to realize that those who are regulars are some of the most obnoxious, hyper-emotional, hateful and vapid people you will ever come across on the internet.
