I'll allow it because I'm not sure which came first, but just be aware.
Maybe. It's similar to how every other social media platform has ads. Reddit is mainstream now but there's still a level of tech savviness that's here and easier to find compared to every other platform.
Reddit is much more open too.
Redditors have no patience for publishers or agendas because it defeats the purpose of a vote system. Posts earn their attention because a group of users decided they would, not because the maker of the post paid for it. I think for now reddit’s safe in terms of being ad-free. But I could see how down the line, the more mainstream the site becomes, the more advertisers will try to squeeze their way into the front page.
We're going to keep an eye on things as they develop in the House and then evaluate the next course of action (let us know if you have ideas!). But yes, if this is important to you, there is no reason not to start letting your Representative know now. They need to know that their constituents care about this.
If you make everyone on Reddit admin for a day, we could better show legislators we care AND preemptively destroy Reddit's redesign. Two birds with one stone
