Last boost: A good point that Reddit may not be actively trying to price third-party clients out of business, but wants to sell the site’s contents as AI training material, and doesn’t care about the consequences on anything else. I might have to purge my account 😢
Ad-supported models never worked all that well, but this doesn’t seem very sustainable. A few companies may want to pay Reddit millions, but once they have the data… and some of the users stop providing new content… what’s the value?
Want to know when I post new content to my blog? It's a simple as registering for free to an RSS aggregator (Feedly, NewsBlur, Inoreader, …) and adding www.ff00aa.com to your feeds (or www.garoo.net if you want to subscribe to all my topics). We don't need newsletters, and we don't need Twitter; RSS still exists.
