    Reddit is worse than Facebook, it includes even keylogger through trackers from TowerData. Vade retro.

    Your posts and ID in Reddit are known by Google, Facebook, M$ and half a dozen more companies.

    “Reddit” (utility) “files” (needs) “to go public” (money)
    … Many English sentences seems absurd to me on the first read.

    Kinda surprised they’re going public with all the toxic subs they still run. So many subs named “master race” etc. Investors will have questions.

      All shareholders care about is that Reddit is a popular site where they can mine user activity data.

      I disagree. This issue applies to advertisers, who don’t want their brand shown along side questionable content, but investors don’t care. Investors only care about profitability and growth potential.

        That’s what I’m trying to say. All of that has to be ‘explained’ to shareholders.

          Meanwhile actual hate subs will go unnoticed while reddit shuts down pcmasterrace to get a higher IPO

      Not really. Every generation needs to die off to make room for the next to flourish. I feel like reddit has been stumbling along as an undead monolith for long enough. At this point it’s not doing much other than preventing the fediverse from building a stronger network effect.
