Reddit is not an official channel for the OS, please discuss this with
the unaffiliated entities in charge of said unaffiliated community.

(Also reddit sucks and always has, but that's because it's a meme-ridden
pit of people doing strange things, engaging in offtopic
stream-of-consciousness randomness, and unmoderated help vampires. Also
it implements the dreaded "like"/"upvoting" methodology of community
interaction. Need I say more?)

Problem solved. Let's dance to celebrate.
