I was wrong. I nearly acted against Reddit's property rights. I acted irrationally.

On a final note:

I apologize. Again, I was terribly wrong in considering this. It's disrespectful to those who contribute to the r/Bitcoin sub-reddit and leaves a bad mark on the Bitcoin community. I have nothing but remorse for this incident. I don't expect forgiveness but I wish to make it clear that I do not condone these previous actions of mine. I will not disrespect the Bitcoin community again.

I have acted accordingly and resigned. Theymos now has jurisdiction over the Reddit.

Godspeed.

Property rights? You acted against the spirit of the website, the reason why it exists, against the interests of everyone who was subscribed and only in the interest of your own greedy, self-serving, corrupt and morally bankrupt ass.

In short, f*ck you. I that hope you're never given a position of power anywhere ever again

I believe if somebody invested in a significant amount in the subreddit, they would care for their investment. Obviously it could go into the hands of somebody that wishes to turn it into a giant advertisement which is why I wouldn't of sold it in the end.

I'm pretty sure we were all irrational at 17. That said, irrational moves come with consequences and that's always a good lesson.

Agreed. I'm glad that Atlas is recognizing that he's acting irrationally, as that's the first step to fixing the problem.

Theymos has jurisdiction over the sub-reddit now. When he becomes aware, I am sure he will handle the place nicely through proper delegation or otherwise.

It would be pretty cool if one day you actually learn from your mistakes, instead of always convincing yourself you are right and continuing to make similar ones each time someone calls you out.

Just want to say that I don't think what you tried to do was morally wrong. Perhaps the way you went about it was not the most honest, but it seems to me that you homesteaded r/Bitcoin and therefore should be able to do with it as you wish (within the reddit terms of use, of course).

What the hell is Reddit?

Holy shit that made me laugh!

To a few choice people (YOU KNOW WHO U R): stop flaming Atlas, he's owning up to what he sees as his mistake.  No reason to be a complete dickwad to him, you're just making yourselves look like assholes.

Well Atlas, where i come from people sell facebook fan pages and alikes like hot cakes and i don't see anything wrong with that.
People must be rewarded, if not for more, at least for the time dedicated to it.
I guess some people prefer those guys who try to trademark Bitcoin, never contributing a single bit to it Wink

To all the nay sayers: The man worked for it. Must he starve, instead of trying to capitalize on his time?
Or must he mug an old lady?  Roll Eyes

The argument has been that this was a broad community effort that Atlas has personally tried to cash in on. If that is the case, yes, he should starve over exploiting the goodwill of others. However, it seems he knew it was wrong and did the right thing in the end.

Mugging and starving are the choices presented in a monetary system.

Bitcoin combines money, the wrongest thing in the world, with software, the easiest thing in the world to get wrong.

I agree with making money off facebook fan pages - there are lots of crud that admin's need to delete, moderate and etc.
Reddit is different though. Users submit their own content. Users vote and weed through submissions. Users make and vote for witty comments.
Subreddit mods usually just weed through the spam filter and implement changes in css - not a difficult task, especially for a small subreddit.

It's called the reddit community for a reason.

Anyone who would pay money to be a moderator of a community based on trust and responsibility is not someone who should ever be a moderator.
