  2. My solution was to remove the main feed from reddit homepage and instead only have a small list of sub-reddits I actually care about. Like /r/haskell, /r/edmproduction, etc. Now I can get my ‘fix’, but with a much better signal-to-noise ratio. And, because there is far less content coming up, I don’t accidentally lose hours of time browsing it. So, in this way, reddit is its own supplement.

  3. Found monitoring where I spent my time was highly useful. Something like rescuetime gives just pure stats on how long you’ve been on a website / in an app or game. Makes for shocking reading at times. Seeing the actual numbers helped me to cut back.

  4. I use Chrome Nanny to allow only 5 minutes of Reddit per hour: https://chrome.Google.Com /webstore/detail/cljcgchbnolheggdgaeclffeagnnmhno.

  5. Do you guys really have that big of a problem with it?? I love Reddit, but there is so much trouble to get into on the net that one site getting a hold of you is goshdarnit crazy… you guys should seek counseling.

  6. Yeah, I finally realized that all my time wasted on Reddit could have gone to work, hobbies, and education. Sure Reddit was educational, at points, but I just grew weary of reading all the news taken out of context, warped viewpoints of ignorant 25 year olds, the ridiculous amount of repeat posts/comments/bad attitude. I know so many professionals that get on there thinking they can help the community and posting great knowledge, only to see it downvoted in favor of some douchebag who’s uncle knew a guy that knew a guy. Not to mention 85% of the stuff is just garbage filler and cats. Bleck…

    Reddit has a place in the net, but I’ve just grown tired of it’s insipid waste water flavor.

    • True. One of the saddest realisations is all the great informative Reddit posts that are lost forever because no one is backing anything up and users delete their accounts. There’s been some real gold on Reddit, but it’s lost forever.

  7. Having read this I thought it was extremely enlightening. I appreciate you finding the time and energy to
    put this informative article together. I once again find myself spending a significant amount of time both reading and commenting.

    But so what, it was still worthwhile!.
