    Ok so something most people are missing, spez is only a small part of Reddit.

    They have other managers, board members, etc

    Remember when Reddit threw Poe under the bus, they ruined her career and threw her away.

    After they fired her the Reddit protests stopped.

    Learn who else is a part of Reddits management too and raised shit.

      I’ll have to find it, but I remember seeing some comments/ posts explaining how it was Huffman himself who was really the one pushing to kill off 3rd party apps.
      Plus, he’s the one who was lying about the Apollo dev’s comments as well as editing other users comments.

        3rd party apps are not compatible with making $$$. Anyone in the business or shareholders who want to make profit will be behind killing 3rd party apps.

          Having third party apps is very profitable if those apps are used by thousands of unpaid moderators giving away free labour.

          And one of the main reasons they do this labour is because these apps make it very efficient to moderate a huge number of posts.

          Reddit is not a profitable venture. It’s a charitable one run by the users who prop it up.

          Reddit sells NFTs (avatars) that could easily make them more (from a percentage of each transaction) than what they’re asking for API access, if they just required 3rd party apps to include them, which wouldn’t have generated barely any backlash. But it’s their loss, and if we get a federated alternative in the process… then so be it.

          Sure they are, if they charged a similar amount for api access as they’re currently making from an average user all of the apps would gladly pay it, and reddit wouldn’t be losing any money from 3rd party apps. They could even charge 2-3x that amount and make a nice profit off of it, and all of the apps would probably be fine. It’s only because they set the bar at an absurd 20x that the apps can’t come up with enough money to pay

      It’s not like Spez is only some miniscule middle manager for reddit. He absolutely has a say in how things will go. He has shown who he really is.

        I think they’re saying not to get too narrow on who you’re blaming. It’s easy for these corporations to pin it all on the CEO, when things get too hot get rid of him and then continue exactly as it was. Not that spez didn’t play his part, but he’s not alone.

      This is top quality content, but those fucking bootlicker Reddit shills in the comments make me want to gouge my eyes out. I need to just stay off Reddit.

      Those damned Snoos encapsulate everything I hate about Reddit.

      Sorry, I’m not saying this to be hostile to you, I just never liked the Snoos. It’s like a shopping mall insisting I love their mascot, when I just want to get to a store.

      You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

      Thanks it’s a labor of love and robots as I use the series to navigate my own take on everything going on right now with Ai in as real time as possibly. I may start a twitch to make regular video content but haven’t fully made a choice. Being a vtubers sounds kind of fun though. Thanks for reading!
