I was recently banned from the subreddit, r/Robinhood for making a comment about Robinhood’s shady practices. I quoted their own rule, “Don’t be you”, calling them hypocrites, and received a 7 day ban from Reddit the following day.

How can we draw attention to Reddit supporting a subreddit whose very rules promote and protect intolerance and harassment?

I encourage you to message Reddit directly and report this community.

    Anybody who currently sizing up a controlling share of Reddit is not doing so with an eye toward its splendid fundamentals as a business, or even its power as a brand. It’s all about that juicy training data and the chance to manufacture consent at a massive scale.

    The users were always the product, and now they’re not even the main attraction.

      Exactly, the users are still the product, but invisible. All posts, comments, everything they ( also me for 10+ years ) wrote is now reddit’s product. That’s the whole package they have, nothing else.

      A snapshot of 2 decades worth of drama, sex, lots of sex, science, technology, more drama, music, literature, shitposts, omg the amount of shitposts…

      That’s unbound content, take away the usernames and feed the AI with Reddit-Lore.

      In a few years, whatever kind of AI avatar we’ll have as our daily assistant, will be breaking both arms of innocent boys, convince poor fellows to visit jolly ranch and greet us sayin’: oh shit wadupp?
