Syphilis. Gonorrhea is close to being immune to antibiotics :-\

The OP won't reply anyway. He likes to try to bring up a divisive topic, offer no opinions and not participate in it. I suppose its a little bit like people who breed fighting dogs. They've no intention of fighting themselves but just like to watch after they set something up.

Sadly nimp is a terrible troll and most of us are bored of his OPs.

4chan is a cesspool of constant shitposting, but the actual genuine discussion it has is, depending on the board, well informed and decent.

Reddit's karma system leads to constant and extremely blatant circlejerking and it has the worst layout ever designed.

So yeah, 4chan is better.

4chan is where smart people pretend to be dumb.  Reddit is where dumb people pretend to be smart.

Old, but still a valid point.

The people on reddit and 4chan are exactly the same. It's just that on reddit, people like to pretend they're sophisticated. 4chan seems to be a bit more honest. And yes, reddit circlejerks all the time due to the fact that posts that gain points quickly are scored higher than posts that gain points more slowly.

There's a few good points in this thread.

Reddit is a relatively mainstream website with a large userbase, so it's great for discussions of just about anything if you find the relevant subreddit. Circle jerks are relatively common depending on the subreddit, but it's easy to just unsub from them and be on your way (also, sort comments by best and not by hottest, or whatever the shitty default setting is). The strength of the site lies within its upvoting system which, contrary to what Blanko said, generally promotes varied discussion.

4chan has a much smaller user base. Most of the larger boards that made it famous contain a lot of shit now, especially /b/, but there are gems among the shit. There's good discussion on the various boards from time to time, but the format has always annoyed me.

Plenty of people frequent both, even if some people think one site is cooler than the other.

9GAG is le best of all worlds. They even have paid people to take top posts from 4chan/reddit, retitled them, and then put a watermark on it.

Reddit is full of fags obsessed with le memes. At least 4chan has actual discussion and isn't a left-wing echo chamber.
Always check your tackle- Caerphilly school of Health. If I see an innuendo in my post, I'll be sure to whip it out.
