reddit is not an imageboard at all. it's a content aggregator really. but the comment system still allows a community to form around that content that is being shared.
I don't even know what the fuck you're talking about with the worshipping stuff. I don't worship boards. I don't know that reddit worships cancer. sounds like complete nonsense.
/pol/ was good in the first place because it allowed truly free discussion of politics. the melting pot of ancaps, ancoms, commies, socialists, libertarians, fascists, nazis etc. was something you just could never have gotten anywhere else. Having it be either a nazi or lefty echo chamber is equally bad.
You also don't need echo chambers. Containment boards have always been a mistake, they just create and attract more of what you don't want. The original, pre-cancer 4chan stance was way more effective, for example outright banning of furfags. Now 4chan is infested with unironic furfags because of /trash/ acting as a containment board, which is really an incubation chamber. This is also how political opinion spread on 4chan, /new/ and /pol/ incubated it, then spread it. That's how it works.
Crowds are much like animals, and you can train them in exactly the same way with simple reinforcement learning. The simplest and most effective trick in any trainers book is attention. Any kind of attention reinforces its behaviour, ignoring the animal discourages it. The most effective punishment is to deny attention. So if you don't want cancer on your board, get rid of it and don't think further about it.
I don't know why you want to kill people who disagree with you, are you mentally ill?
