* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [[http://www.businessinsider.com/google-tried-to-acquire-reddit-in-2005-2016-11 Google attempted to acquire Reddit]] back in the site's early days in 2005. According to [[https://www.reddit.com/user/kn0thing u/kn0thing]]: "We weren't big enough to justify a YouTube-style acquisition, where you do your own thing and have your own little world to operate. We were two dudes in an apartment: Do we want to become Google employees? As amazing as those perks were in 2005 - Google was the place to work - it wasn't something we wanted to do quite yet."

** The reddit community as a whole isn't too proud of the Boston Bomber Witchhunt, in which the community tried to determine the bomber's identity and accused an innocent person, who was later found dead (believed to be for unrelated reasons, but the Internet campaign definitely wasn't helping his grieving family). It's often brought up as a cautionary tale whenever it looks like reddit's gearing up for another round of playing Internet Detective.
