Wrong on a ton of levels. People resent reddit because its an echo chamber and validates popular opinion and suppresses anything that goes against the majority. They also have a lot of "fanboy"-like tendencies that, while hypocritical, is the antithesis of 4chan as a counter-culture contrarian faggot box.
However, the problem isn't just a reddit problem but a problem of the internet as a whole and its two-fold. One: The internet has become accessible by everyone, not just the geeks, nerds and teens of the late 90s. And just like everything else in the world, the more mainstream a thing gets, the worse it ultimately becomes. While more people have access to it, the internet as surprisingly gotten smaller. Unfortunately, the entirely of the mainstream internet has all been liquidated into a small handful of websites. There's an infographic that I've seen(but won't post because /co/ mods are triggerhappy for no reason sometimes) that states that in the late 90s-early 00s there were over 10k websites with widespread internet traffic all kinda doing their own thing, run by regular people and rarely making money from them. Now its down to 500 if not lower websites owned by an even smaller handful of corporation-owned sites.
