What Happened to Reddit?

Recently my Reddit browsing took a turn for the worse. I know they occasionally update the Front Page to add or remove various subreddits. But I can't tell if the recent changes I'm experiencing are for everyone, or just me. I assume they are for everyone, because I am not logging in.

The site is fucking almost garbage for me now, and I legit can't figure out what is happening. Some of the subreddits that have been on the (my?) Front Page over the past week defy logic. Like why would they add a subreddit dedicated to Donald Glover on the Front Page? Pollandball (what ever the fuck that is)? Breaking Bad? (Great show, but why would they add it to the main page after being over for a couple years?) None of these are subreddits I have ever visited. Ever. So there is no way they are somehow being added to Front via my history. The only explanation is that they just updated the Front Page to have a shit load of random subs...?

None of this makes sense. Anyone else having similar issues?

I just stick to small subs, but I remember reading how the new algorithm for the Front Page was completely horrible. I guess they never got around to fixing it.

I tried giving it a look and there's definently some random crap in there.

I was beginning to think it was a new algorithm. But it's bonkers with how it now applies to apparently the whole site, sans NSFW subs. What an awful idea. I get wanting to expose people to new subs, but there's the "random" link if I'm feeling frisky.
