The Reddit blackout shows no signs of stopping | CNN Business
A widespread Reddit blackout affecting some of the site’s largest communities has continued into its third day with no signs of stopping, as a number of groups on the site vowed to remain closed off indefinitely to protest changes to the platform’s data policies.

Good. Let’s keep it up!

I don’t want to see Reddit fail, but I do want to see them change their minds or at least offer a compromise. Remember to vote in your communities to continue the blackout!
