Sorry. I thought most people would have seen the post posted here earlier. No comments appear anywhere but my inbox. I’ll click on “one comment” and there will be nothing there no matter how I sort it. Federated comments also just don’t appear. Sometimes i’ll click on a post with something like “12 comments” but only see one.
Yeah. The reason I prefer them is it seems that people have more meaningful conversations than on other platform. Also on reddit specific posts can appear in search results making it possible to write a blog on one of these platform or find a very helpful suggestion to a specific problem you have. (I really wish lemmy did this: not just because of the practicality but it would also bring a whole bunch more users over here.)
I wish something like this would happen but I don’t really see it happening anytime soon in the US.
