It's a pre-emptive strike. Instead of waiting for the admins to close it down, we do it so that we can maintain control over it (by having it link to other sites, reddit subs, etc.).

You can keep it alive indefinitely this way because there's no way the admins can say we broke any rules. And if they close down the reddit subs its linking to, we can just make new ones and link to them instead.

If it's not being used, and is just linking to other things, no one will see it except people already interested. This makes us lose a lot of reach on Reddit, doesn't it? It we want something linking to everything we might use, we need something off Reddit to do that so we have better control of it.

Why not have the sub be less "violent" and link to other spaces. Keeps the reach and still links where we want to.

But wouldn't the subs being linked get enough visilibilty from regular r/@ users to start appearing on /all themselves?

If it's a choice between risking losing the r/anarchism name altogether and keeping it alive through replaceable off-shoot subs that it links to, then I think it's the best option.

Because you know as well as I do that the admins will keep making more and more bullshit demands to stifle us. Every few months they have some other nonsensical orders. Don't forget your fellow mods got banned for approving a harmless pdf or 'bash the fash' memeing. They've already gone way beyond policing actually-violent content and are just fucking with us. It's not going to get better, only worse.
