As a bystander, which website has the most toxic, i.e. the most unpleasant community?

Reddit, quite easily. Everyone is a bunch of snowflakes there, who can't handle opinions they don't agree with.

The worst online continuity is the one with the most children. So 4chan.

Worst are the ones that really aren't verbally communicating at all. 

Like any online multiplayer communities grind my gears the most

Socialized wise, all but MLPF. Youtube, wiki, discord, you name it.

Steam Community User Discussions (S.C.U.D.) and Wikipedia are the worst I've personally been exposed to. 

Wikipedia is just a headache of bureaucracy and I had to quit using S.C.U.D. for my own sanity after it devolved into people doing highly unethical and  illegal stuff to just spite people they didn't like.

4chan is like a reverse tumor. It sits there, soaking up bandwidth and pumping out endless piles of content nobody wants (which is also frequently harmful, e.g. /b/ is currently spammed with pictures of male anatomy and Flat Earth arguments).

When Fortnite sends its people, they're not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing trolls. They’re bringing hackers. They’re children. And some, I assume, are good people.

I was once a part of a community that was free for everyone, then decided to start charging because of the size of the userbase. It was massive and topics were constantly updating. I only paid for a couple of years (two 1-year subscriptions) instead of the lifetime sub because no one knew if or when the site was going to go offline. What sucks is it was a slow site down the road and, while I still have an account there, I only view it like twice a year to see if anything has changed. It's hard to believe that I joined in 2005... I hope to find something else like it but free, obviously, with a great community of members. :)

@Olly As this topic focuses on the internet and websites, I have moved it to Media Discussion. :)

MyAnimeList. Its users love bashing anime they don't like instead of just pretending it doesn't exist and moving on. It's so toxic, I quit anime altogether (except for the occasional movie).

Those are some of the worst but then there are others that are just as bad.

All of the internet is tied. I miss the internet of the 90s: now it's full of jerks with no filters.

Every online community has good and toxic people, some are worse than others though. I don't really know what are the worst, but I think it is Fortnite community and TikTok community in my opinion. YouTube comments aren't as toxic as they are annoying, with people posting irritating comments just to get likes such as "best for Fortnite player is: like for Ninja and comment for Tfue" and "I liked my own comment cause no one else would". Which brings up another issue - people are so desperate to be accepted by others that they like their own comments, and that is also annoying.

Hmm, sounds like the American society today. :unamused:

This one's a bit hard, but every community has the chance to have bad parts in it. 4chan is the one that gets my vote, even though there is some good that comes out of it every now and again.

Please keep other site's drama nonsense off of MLPF, this is not the first time I have mentioned that to some of you specifically. Thanks all. 

 

I really think that this topic is substantive because of one KEY word some may have overlooked. @Olly said bystander. Now, imagine you are a fan of x, y, or z. You go on to YouTube to only to watch a video of interest. You rarely comment, but you do read comments. Same with Reddit, 4chan, etc. The interesting question here is this -- do the participants in environments that are caustic or generally not the most peaceful have a negative impact of the average casual viewer who witnesses this? Is there value lost or gained here by having such an environment? What are the trade-offs? These are the interesting questions worth pondering.

Tumblr for me. 

I still regularly visit. Love it for the art and the entertainment. But holy crap do they loose their minds when things get even remotely political, race related or gender related. Heck, they never even fact check original posts or even their own arguments before going on the war path.

That gets old. So much hate over nothing... it's so negative lately and nobody bothers to think for themselves. If they see something written they'll just believe it

Which ever one has the most gamers in it, given just how trash the gaming community really is.  Although the anime community isn't real much better to be frank.
