I doubt it. Although forum activity has been declining for a while, I'm not sure if that's the main line of reasoning behind forming the subreddit. Seems it's for people who want to discuss the articles and maybe the podcast but can't be arsed to create a forum account here.

Is the score something you have to worry about if you're a casual poster or does that just afflict people with a lot of hot takes? Or are mass targeted downvoting campaigns by spammers and trolls a common thing that can't be revealed or appealed?
Personally I find the way that reddit organizes its post for non-members to be downright infuriating. Heaven help you if you browse the site on a phone and want to see the oldest posts in a thread first or don't want a discussion to load a new page.

It tends to affect anyone with a dissenting opinion on a topic; "top" posts first are the default sorting type and a few downvotes will hide a post in a thread (you can change this default sorting per board but not for individual threads). But some boards are more hostile than others.
It's mainly good for memes, videos and collection pics on the most popular gaming boards though there are some boards that encourage discussion like truegaming and gaming4gamers.
