Always amusing when small numbers are thrown around as big numbers because they sound big to uneducated people.
150k users is not even in the top 200 subs on Reddit (currently 219). All the top subs have 5M-8M subs. So, if this petition gets to 3M, let us know. Might be a relevant section of the population.
Meanwhile, these mods caused irreparable harm to the site (and ergo its chance at profit, thus, existence) by diverting the unregistered lurkers to other pages. Every mod for every sub that went dark should be banned permanently, just like any of us would be if we tried to harm a business for which we work.
