We can see the lack of civility and low writing level here on the forums also, mainly from right-wingers. From the article:

Since the end of the primaries (June 2016 – May 2017), complexity of discourse in Democratic subreddits improved to a 6.9 grade-level while discourse in Republican subreddits further declined to a 1.1 grade-level.

This is evident on these forums also, not just on Reddit. I see the cause as right-wingers "argue" without facts, logic, or nuance. There's really no way to have discourse, especially intelligent discourse, when one side denies facts and redefines words to their own odd meanings.
