It's kind of funny how many 1:1 clones of popular subreddits were created on kbin after the big Reddit api debacle earlier this year that were posted in by like one or two people for a month or so, then just completely died. Some with hundreds or 1k + users subscribed.

All of this is in the second paragraph of the article.

I think it kind of flies in the face of what Open Source Software should be. They're walling off code behind accounts in the Microsoft ecosystem.
