I keep hearing this but from the jump preddit was a site for porn and specifically CP. It got revamped a ton when it was called out by the general public, it's just returning to its roots.

My partner and I have a theory the entire internet formed the way it did because of porn - I mean being web-page-based instead of developing more in the direction of usenet groups or other forms of early internet. That ease of sending and accessing porn pushed the direction of the tool itself.

Wow I hadn't thought of that, can you tell me more? I'm actually interested in this, I wonder what an alternate sort of internet would look like.
