It has a great interface (the old one) semi-anonymous no-email accounts, and a huge database and audience. There is no better online interface for quickly scanning headlines and reading comments.
But all of the organic traffic is from San Francisco/Left Coast Social Justice Warrior whackjobs, and the rest of it is US Air Force psychological operations spammed from Eglin Air Force Base in Valparaiso, Florida.
I can’t help myself. I go read some comment and want to tear my hair out. Until I realize I’m literally reading some purple-hair, facially-pierced, polygenderqueered sex worker, or an E-3 copy and pasting from a DoD script.
If you want to get really wild, go onto worldpolitics and you can also interact with Israeli college students getting paid 12 shekels an hour to copy and paste from the Hasbara binder.
Why do I do this to myself?
There is nowhere online for people who want to engage in substantive discussion about serious issues truthfull, except for the Unz Review (unz.com) and even then you have to ignore 50% of the commenters. The worst are the Ashkenazi hasbarats and the religious whack-nuts channeling E. Michael Jones and Maurice Pinay about the Judeo-Masonic Conspiracy theory controlled by the Elders of Zion and the Queen of England.
So many smart white guys have been utterly taken in by the Neo-Reaction NRx cult and its leaders (((Curtis Yarvin))) and Jim “Nine Year Old Girls Sneak Into My Bed When I’m Drunk” Donald. Intelligent, sharp guy who nevertheless have been utterly bamboozled by simplistic Dungeons & Dragons “models” where everything is “warriors, priests, and merchants.” The moral code is literally taken directed from Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Edition Two. Lawful Good, Chaotic Neutral, etc.
D&D nerds were the anime freaks of their day, the 80s and 90s, and just as pathetic. I long for an authoritarian state just so we can send all those people to the camps.
I’d spend every day shaming Affirmative Right for their gross counter-signaling and sucking up to Jews, but disqus is a horrible platform. TheZBlog.com has some good articles and some good commenters, but it’s impossible to post there due to their horrific interface.
But of course as soon as you build something yourself, you get banned by the ADL.
