  • ☹️ Reddit: Organized Lightning - Hoping to read this later, too exhausted at the minute, I have mixed feelings about Reddit as some of you know, they were very central for most of my early web years, and I really gravitated towards their approach, I never had an account, only reading threads, so it’s made me really sad that when I finally created an account, that it’s broken, but it’s worse than broken, because everyone thinks I’ve been shadow banned, even though I haven’t, and the support team just don’t answer my emails, so much for “one of us”, turns out I never was, so seeing them valued at $6 billion, I’m happy for them because it’s Reddit! But it’s not the Reddit I thought it was, and maybe it never was that Reddit all along - I opened yet another support ticket with their support team earlier today, got the customary auto-reply, just waiting for the next email from them, hopefully from an actual human, just wanted to make a note of that here
