It has nothing to do with any user community complaints. It has to do with GTD.
Basically, I had become a Diggaholic. After I came home from work I’d check Google Reader and load up Digg and Reddit and spend about an hour grazing through them. It was WORSE a while ago – I used to have Digg feeds in Google Reader.
Digg and Reddit are cool, but I realized I gain almost nothing valuable from them. I don’t need to vote on news or make comments. I don’t even need to keep up that badly with the news. I’m likely to read about anything important from Digg or Reddit on one of the blogs I read anyway.
In fact, it makes more sense to subscribe to blogs and other sites over time – sites that you always get valuable information from and enjoy reading – rather than wading through Digg and Reddit stories.
It didn’t make sense to become a volunteer employee for a Web 2.0 company.
Now I just need to give the boot to Netflix.
