"Wasting Reddit's Time"

Interesting way of saying it conflicted with investors.

Wasn't there a game about clicking a button? Now they are worried about wasting time?

I suspect "wasting time" meant that controversial subreddits who weren't breaking any explicit rules (Vote brigading, calling for violence, etc) were still relentlessly reported on simply due to their nature. Maybe they were tired of receiving those reports? And we're supposed to believe that sorting through them was some sort of waste of time for them? I'm still more convinced they were just a threat to potential investors and they broke the inherent narrative that the vast majority of Reddit regurgitated day-in-day-out.

What can you do when downvotes aren't enough, you know?

For every CPU cycle wasted on processing a webpage without any ads on it, they've wasted time they could've used processing webpages that generate that precious ad revenue.

Time is money, isn't it?

I thought wasting time was basically what Reddit was for.

Oh, and now it's Reddit, guys, not reddit. Gotta keep that fresh new rebrand in mind.
