Angered over Redditgate, users want a Decentralized alternative to Reddit

Reddit is in revolt to protest the termination of Victoria Taylor, the site’s director of talent who managed the popular “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) sessions that have included President Obama and other celebrities, Wired reported a few days ago. Hundreds of subreddits have been shut down by angered moderators.
