Yeah, I'm glad that Hubski is what it is and that we have no intent of viewing our content as a "gold mine."

If we can pull enough donations to keep the lights on, that is A-Okay by me. Reddit really is a "weird beast." So much content, such an interesting study in human behavior, on so many levels.

They seem to have staying power though. The sites still wildly popular. How to monetize is another story...

YOU KNOW IT!

Break me hubski!!! Make me cry uncle! I challenge each of you and all of you!

BRING THE PAIN!

In all seriousness - I think if everyone chucked a fiver at this - we'd be done for the year. Please consider throwing a couple of bucks to give mk, TNG, b_b, and the others a break. They've been fronting this site for years. Let's take our turn.

If the lawyers ever stop fucking each other and I get my settlement I am kicking in a sizable spot of coin.

My wife's former boss linked to an AMA on Facebook yesterday. She's in her 60s. On the one hand, that's reach. On the other hand, she's no taste-maker. The core that made Reddit what it was is long gone, and what's left is a sprawling , inconsistent mess with a lot of baggage.

All the reach, none of the bullshit.
