I went to ZH for nearly a decade, but they've declined significantly. It used to be a collection of people trying to make sense of the post-TARP world, but it gradually devolved into a troll playground because there is no moderation and the same people make 50+ posts on any big article.
The new ZH is for people who:
-blame one ethnic group (blacks, Jews, Muslims, etc) for all their problems. Pro tip: if you refer to blacks, use the n-word or people will think you're soft, seriously.
-are ultra-religious kooks that thinks Jesuits run the world
-are Q-tards that believe Trump is still playing 4D chess
-obsessively advocate for war with Iran. The site is still generally anti-war but the pro-war people are VERY vocal
-absolutely despise China and think they're always lying, unless it's about Covid-19 data where they are clearly telling the truth
-think Boomers are wonderful and Millennials are irredeemably terrible
They don't even post as much financial content anymore because it generates fewer comments than the "red meat" articles on hot button topics. It's like many of them got tired of talking about the Fed and now want to fight about dopey red/blue topics.
