Tired of Salty Gaming Posts, Redditors Start ‘Low Sodium’ Communities

Subreddits for popular video games can be some of the most toxic places online. If you’re playing Battlefield 2042 and enjoying it, then sharing that joy on /r/Battlefield2042 these days is a good way to get yelled at and hit with a thousand downvotes. There’s a core community of players that are so mad about the state of the game that any positive statement about it is pushed aside. Thankfully, there’s a less salty alternative, a subreddit where people gather to discuss and enjoy Battlefield 2042 in a more considered and reasonable manner—/r/LowSodium2042.
