In general, it's also filled with the least introspective techbros on the planet, who overestimate their importance.
Also, they really don't ban people unless they are repeat offenders, and moderator deleted comments are still visible, which means you'll have a great time reading the comments of something you've made if you are in any way not a cis white straight male.
