I think the community must have improved, because I joined not too long ago and I often find myself pleased with what I see there. There are still plenty of things in that culture that make me groan, but it's rarely anything that's outright bad like you'd see on that other site.

yeah; i remember going there like... jesus.... 4 or 5 years ago... and just thinking it was all the horrible parts of that other site but with bigger egos and less varied content and discussion.... so i stayed with that other site and hated HN....

but now it looks like its the same thing i liked about that other site from back when i liked it... like actual substantive discussion where the average reply length is like a few paragraphs. its still just about boring capitalist shit but tech can be interesting sometimes... i guess...

Oh and maybe I ought to say you should read the linked article, but I figure you're all The Toast readers anyway, because it's an awesome site.
