I suspect some of the hate on Reddit is simply due to size, though some might be about money - more users means more cash, whereas with self-hosted platform, there’s little cash incentive.
Another use of federation is notification - you can follow @firstname.lastname@example.org from Mastodon, and you’ll see posts come up in your feed, so there’s no requirement to continuously check or get an email notification.
The community I’m talking about amounts 10k+ users on discourse and 3,5k+ users on Reddit. I’m sure that size in this particular case isn’t the issue.
Once again, following activitypub is great in my book (for standardisation purposes) but having a federated feed with all the comments is detrimental for specialized forum imo. See the reasoning above your comment.
