I'm pretty sure the same is true for Amazon. No idea about Reddit but I know Amazon reinvests all of its profits.

Reading that, it appears that a lot of posters on that thread were banned from boards.

Even though boards frequently drives me mad, well, sections of it, I think it's a great thing overall.

I appreciate reddit for it's niches and such, but I don't really see the appeal of the reddit Ireland page whenever I use it.

There's also a fair bit of life here still, I thought boards was slowly dying for years, but the pandemic has definitely brought more activity than previously.

We could get a bit of thredception going here. Anyone know if there's a thread on reddit discussing the thread on boards discussing the thread on reddit?

Any money he gets from amazon would directly contribute to it not turning a profit
