So? Dude, you should be butthurt that someone posted a no more meaningless posts post - that's the stupidest and most meaningless thing ever.

I don't think ergdj5 is explaining it. Ziq had created many sockpuppet accounts to populate Raddle in its early days to create the illusion that it was more active and more of a community than it was at the time, which was seen by many as a betrayal of trust, and Ziq saw as necessary to bootstrap a social media platform. I can see both sides, but mostly see it as a bit of failure of infrastructure, as other sites such as lobste.rs have an "invite tree" as a safeguard against sock puppetry, and to be honest, this whole site kind of started with controversy as it was created as a result of leftist infighting (when /r/leftwithsharpedge was banned from reddit), which I am almost able to look past because it's important that we're not on websites milk their users for ad revenue/cooperate with law enforcement/use proprietary software.

Go ahead and make one. I'd love to see it. Don't post it here because that's dumb and sparking drama when nobody gives a shit.

You can have raddle.com for a cool 100k. I emailed them and asked.

And they even offered to drop the price a bit when I laughed in their face.

Please suggest rules we can make in this comment chain. We need rules that will prevent a repeat of the abusive disaster Ziq made raddle into.
