10 years ago, our founder /u/obdp had a vision to provide Reddit a dedicated repository for all things soda-pop related and created Just Ice, Served.
It was a terrible idea
Since then, things have only gotten worse. Not only for the carbonated beverage aficionados, but also for the website as a whole.
Long story short, some of you and your peers are insufferable and make everything around you worse. But that can be chalked up to being young and stupid. There's a small chance you'll fumblefuck your way to realizing this and correct your actions. However, there's no reason to allow you to have that epiphany while still being a participant of this subreddit.
To celebrate our 2 million subscribers, we're ramping up our automated ban bot.
For those not in the know, a couple years ago we started running a bot specifically targeted at the now defunct NoNewNormal to stave off their heavy brigading. It worked like a charm. After the admins closed them down, we sent the bot to live on a farm where it could run free.
With the overturning of Roe v Wade, we saw a couple of subreddits pinning mod endorsed celebration threads. Why anyone would want to celebrate people losing rights is beyond me. So we got the bot back up and running again to target these two subreddits that had the pinned celebration threads. It's worked like a charm. Some of you have already been unbanned. Most of you didn't qualify. Our loss, I guess.
We can do more gooder.
An additional 175 subreddits that are dedicated to promoting hate, violence and disinformation will be added to the bot. A specialized appeal process has been put in place for those of you that wish to be unbanned. Many of you will not. We'll be better for it.
Giving back to the community is the greatest gift. With the proceeds you have given us when purchasing our temporary ban awards, we will be holding a giveaway in the coming weeks for a 12 months / 6 months / 3 months Reddit premium award. Just gotta wait a bit for the bot to do its thing. Stay tuned, or don't. Whatever.
