Just a quick warning, and a heads up of what's possibly to come...

Long story short, the CEO of Reddit confessed to altering user posts without their knowledge. In bird culture this is considered a dick move, but more than that it just opened the door to a whole host of legal issues for the site and potentially its users. The story is still in its early stages, but it's starting to spread across social media. At the very least there is more than likely going to be another wave of Reddit refugees hitting soon, and given the severity of the situation this could easily become the Reddit Exodus 2.0.

So just a quick heads up on what could possibly be coming this way.

    Ha, I beat you. I think the exodus will depend on if they quickly get rid of Spez or not. The Pao drama was drawn out because Pao didn't leave at all during the first big controversy (the FPH drama) and didn't leave until well into the "reddit revolt" drama. So the reddit alternatives had a lot of time to float around the site. If we wake up tomorrow, and Spez is already gone (happy thanksgiving lol), then there probably won't people throwing around Snapzu.

      Damn my slow typing, lol.

      They're not getting rid of Spez, in fact, from the leaked Slack chat, it looks like they're wanting to double down.

        That is a mod chat, not employee chat like people have been saying.

          And yet, spez continually is talking in that slack chat about coordinating with the mods from an admin perspective. https://sli.mg/a/zxwjZh

          I couldn't care less to double check which names are powermods, employees, or high level admins like spez, because, well, I had given up on reddit, not worth the time. That drama is tiring, and I thought it was bad a couple of years ago, and yet, it still hits news feeds because current redditors, and ex-redditors still like to talk about the state of the site without the threat of moderation interference.

          But it does demonstrate that sites like snapzu, like reddit, like insert social media/link aggregator here lives and breathes by the actions, and words of their admins.
