Redditor here - Yeah great to see Reddit getting on this; which brings me to my next point:
I'm going to organise a little private group - one that is going to publish 'as-fairly-as-we-can-state-it' the truth of the implications, situation and best path forward.
We're going to upvote, comment and generally make as much of a PR impact as we can. Right now we're all wandering around commenting here and there.
If we don't do something, nobody will; it's that simple. This has gone far beyond ranking, this affects our planet and the voice of the people; not just a few webmasters on a specialised forum.
I now also know how to frame our little problem in a way that a much broader audience will appreciate.
These people will be WHs, with 10 mins to spare here and there. I'm off to go look for some now.
BTW: if you don't think this will work, you've haven't been on the internet long enough.
