Reddit does not understand the internet. Closing older articles to any new comments, just as a matter of elapsed time, is so much nonsense I don’t know how to even.
I have things to say about this and I cannot because nonsense-Reddit nonsense-decided that archiving and closing comments with no reason is a thing to do.
This is up there with how much I dislike tangled cords and unreliable bluetooth connections.
It’s the very singular and spectacularly-worst thing about Reddit. I have not been able to come up with any practical reason for this practice and I would really love to know Reddit’s own reasoning.
