reddit is doomed


Why do I say that?


Any website that has a list of rules like those above and below — screenshots from reddit today — is not a place that's gonna be on anyone's A list.


See Jack Dorsey/Twitter for more on how to be inclusive rather than exclusive, a truly failed Internet strategy demonstrated repeatedly in the past and alas, slated to offer more case studies — like reddit — in the future.


Too bad.

Apparently you do not go on Reddit 6.02*10^23.

Plenty of people use the site on a daily (if not hourly) basis. To communicate, to find people with the same interests, to comment on current events, to ask questions of famous (and not so famous) people, etc.

There's plenty to be found if you'd just bother to look. Take a quick look at the sites traffic and you will see that PLENTY of people would notice it going dark.

Those aren't rules for reddit.com. They're rules for reddit.com/r/wtf, one of hundreds of sub-sections of the site.

Traffic-wise, I'd say Reddit is doing okay: http://www.webpronews.com/reddit-hit-3-4-billion-pageviews-in-august-2012-09

Pets.com is not missed. Nobody will notice reddit going dark.
