Specify what you mean by "Specific Niche Community"
Okay, let me put it this way.
A lot of people here wrongly assume that the community is the same throughout the site. It isn't. The only thing one can say that could apply to every single subreddit is that...people share...things. I can't even say "links" because several subreddits only allow self posts.

If thats what he was talking about then yes, Reddit is a filthy scummish site filled with the latest "made" memes.
Yeah, see, if you looked at the right subreddits, you'd know that this is incorrect. It isn't all memes, bacon, narwhals, Carl Sagan, atheism, cat pictures, and liberal circle jerks. If you dig through the shit, you'll find something worthwhile.

I can't believe people are actually glad Aaron Swartz has died just because they don't like Reddit. You're disgusting.
It's just as bad as when that guy from Slipknot died. Everybody was rejoicing. I hate their music, too, but a guy fucking died.

You probably like it because you're a liberal with misshapen genitalia, but conservative libertarians like I do not wish to post on the internet version of a totalitarian state.
again, wrong subreddit, your fault. /r/politics is also a shitty subreddit. Of course, I'm sure you didn't give any of those links a chance because of your bias. That's fine, but don't get annoyed because I won't back away from defending it.
And as Dogpup said, this bbs doesn't exactly live up to high standards, so it seems kinda silly to put down a site that actually has some decent communities, depending on where you go. And, frankly, I wouldn't care if the comment sections sucked or not, for the most part, with the exception of a few self post subreddits like /r/askscience. What matters is the content.
