    Oh you built this community through your own time moderating, posting, upvoting and commenting? Cool we’re gonna sell it to Vanguard for a few billy and pocket the profits! And, here’s a list of approved content you’re allowed to post now. Hard pass bro nobody cares about your IPO when we built your company.

      Look, u/spez has been very clear about this, he’s not threatening anyone, he is just ensuring we only talk about Rampart. You know for the users.
