This is something that really scares me, since it's becoming more common every year lately.

I'm not even talking about the aberration of pressuring and controling people to generate even more money for the selected few, which is already horrible. I'm really afraid that before we know it, all this shit (chips, cameras, microphones, computer logs, etc) will be mandatory in some countries and used beyond company uses, like surveillance for dictatorships.

Reddit has always been controlled by ad money

That's true, and greed doesn't stop there. They have some... concerning investors lately. They applied censorship and other troublesome ethics before , but it won't get any better now with so many fresh millions of $ from one of the largest chinese companies around.

I mean, take a look at Reddit App for example. The ads are nothing compared to the tracking they have there. I'm pretty certain they're selling information to the chinese government (and others).

Also, I have the feeling that every subreddit is getting more and more toxic recently. So much, that I stopped visiting a few of them that I was still lurking from time to time.

For me, Reddit is dead. And good riddance honestly.
