I believe this is how most popular social media gets big: it's born geared towards a specific community; then it grows and broadens its audience; at this point the admin starts making profit from it, and if the site was open source they might archive the source (see reddit.) I hope the last part never happens with raddle.

My apologies, if you feel attacked by this... I just feel like this needs to be said.

I don't think ziq would pull a spez, and if he did, I would be gone so fast, lol.

You're not wrong about this, but in this sites case, profit is not the motive. It's just a group of people with similar interests it seems. Are we trying to get big or are we just trying to share info with like-minded folk?

I know that not all of the stuff here I'm interested in, but I don't mind having things thrown my way that don't interest me. I've actually come across stuff here that have sparked interest in things I've never known about previously. Just saying.
