I'm convinced lwse would have been as big as chapo if the admins hadn't banned it when it got mainstream press. It got tens of thousands of subscribers the day they banned it. .

honestly there's no doubt in my mind you're right about that. and despite what others might say, there is a lot of overlap between the two community spaces, the abrasive and confrontational attitude towards radical politics, the in-jokes, the sense of humor, so much tbh

A lot of people have bought into the PK smear campaign after our sub was banned and his leftwithoutedge sub was left up to keep polluting the leftsphere with its liberalism.

You might want to think about choosin a couple mods for the chapo forum so they can get invested in growing the base. People need incentive to commit to something.
