I uninstalled the reddit app from my phone and my ipad.
I’ve used reddit for years and there are so many reposts, so many reposted comments.
It is too easy to just scroll, scroll, scroll
The reddit admins ignore mods. Fuck the admins.
I do still have the bookmark on my computers, but I very very rarely login, I adblock / scriptblock as much as I can. Not being logged in I see more of the crap which helps break the habit.
There are better ways to spend my attention.
So Reddit will make $100 million this year yet they are completely incapable of answering mods who have questions.
I help mod a sub that has over 500,000 users.
I have sent mails to the reddit admins multiple times.
They ignore them.
I adblock anyway but reddit? Fuck them.
If you are on Chrome .. lol .. yeah .. just give up. Why TF do you use spyware for personal browsing?
You need uMatrix and uBlock Origin. Block their ad systems.
Wasting time on reddit is fine, but at the very least do it in a way that makes those inconsiderate idiots zero money.
Statement today from Private Internet Access:
Private Internet Access is honored to announce a groundbreaking partnership with Snoonet. As a long time supporter of Internet Relay Chat (IRC), Snoonet is a natural addition to Private Internet Access’s yearly donation efforts.
Snoonet is a true Internet community platform with a mission in which we can proudly stand with in solidarity. Society and communication are important and nowhere is that more apparent than online.

We’re in this together. Really?
what the fuck? rdv was logging the entire network for a month?
rdv owns Snoonet.
So while you might trust PIA certainly don’t trust what passes for reddit’s IRC channel.
