But it's ironic since their inaction is just going to ensure they'll lose all control of the message when reddit's admins inevitably shut r/@ down. Then everyone will just see "this sub has been suspended for violating our rules by advocating violence" instead of a message crafted by anarchists. That message that can allow the sub to live on elsewhere, and make a righteous political statement about no-platforming fascism and rejecting liberal horseshoe bullshit.

If the community take a stand and close it down themselves, it'll forever remain a monument to freedom, and a giant fuck you to reddit for persecuting antifa.

They could even have the message call out the actual violent rhetoric ingrained in subs like r/neoliberalism and r/politics, where wealthy Americans normalize and glorify brutal imperialism and genocide for their gain.

Don't forget r/protectandserve. Cops sucking each other off while talking about murdering us.

The notice could also mention that using reddit is horrible security culture because it's proprietary and they cooperate with the feds giving them our private data.
