Redditors ponder a Hollywood boycott in Tuesday’s Reddit Digest
Why don’t people have blue hair, and should redditors boycott Tinseltown to protest anti-piracy legislation? Find out in today’s Reddit Digest.
Want to read Reddit but don’t have the time? Our daily Reddit Digest highlights the most interesting or important discussions from around the social news site—every morning.
Should Reddit install a clock to display how much time you spend logged in to the site? Sounds like it should be a new feature in the next Reddit Enhancement Suite. Or maybe not: “This would be very useful information for my wife when she divorces me later on,” Newshoe writes. (r/askreddit)
Anti-piracy legislation is largely sponsored by Hollywood, so why don’t redditors launch a boycott of the movie and music industries? Why boycott, baba8484 says, when there are much better ways to hurt the industry? (Think: Netflix.) (/r/politics)
Should a small group of moderators be in control of the largest subreddits? Redditor yourdadsbff says no: “It just seems to run counter to reddit’s egalitarian spirit to have someone moderating more than one large subreddit at a time.” (/r/TheoryOfReddit)
Remember the controversy from last month in Reddit’s marijuana community? Various companies we’re giving the r/trees founder commissions based on purchases through his sidebar links. It was completely against Reddit’s terms of service. Worse, the companies were expecting their money to go to a charity, which didn’t exist. Well, good on Vapeworld, one of the companies inadvertently invovled in the scam. They’re giving the $1,023 they owe cinsere back to r/trees in the form of free products. (/r/trees)
