No. I’d already been growing dissatisfied with reddit admins overall. Gundeals was just the straw that broke the camel’s back.

This reinstatement reeks of reddit realizing they had overplayed their hand and created a decently sized exodus. I know where their true intentions are and they can’t undo that.

I popped into the r/gundeals sticky on reddit and the top posts read like a battered spouse forgiving the abuser for making an “honest mistake”. It’s uncomfortable to say the least.

Edit: This move is making people completely forget that r/gunsforsale was and still is gone, so it’s not like reddit really learned it’s lesson.

Reading the new rules they agreed to it is kind of like an abused spouse agreeing to stay since the abuser said they would only beat them on days ending in y and containing d and a.

The “new” rules are literally just allowing gundeals to do exactly what it’s always done. This is the phase in the relationship where the abuser is acting extra nice.

Also, it makes people totally forget that r/gunsforsale got shut down and isn’t coming back.
