I got banned from a subreddit because the BBC changed the article title. There are just too many rules and too many bad rules.

    The problem is that community made tools were severely restricted by Reddit pulling API access.

    A lot of the old moderators left. Reddit itself has shown that it does not want to create any sort of legitimacy or democracy in the moderation process because that legitimacy could override the admins’ legitimacy.

      I agree completely but I think this discussion is relevant for Lemmy as well which has to some extent copied the same structure. While we do have more choice in terms of which admins we want to be under, the fundamental structure and tools are not that different.

        One thing to mention is that Lemmy divorced the role of admin and developer. You have a set of admins with a far larger latitude to act, but the developer level seems lacking to address these issues and the Lemmy developer level seems as to cloistered as the Reddit admin level.
