I know its easier than ever to dunk on how terrible reddit has gotten, but honestly? What is this? How is is safer to deliver this content to kids viewing reddit on a tablet or PC or in the app? Why even create the bs excuse?

They could just have easily told the truth an displayed a message like “Content is limited. Open in the app to view.” It’s still a jerk move, but at a minimum its honest.

    Also just getting a bottom banner asking if you want to use the app. I only ever get there from searches so, no I don’t want the app. One of the only websites deliberately making their mobile site unusable to push an app.

          If I recall, I had to go into uBlocks settings and enable Easylist- annoyances > chat widgets an Adguard -annoyances >mobile app banners, widgets

          I haven’t had any issues myself, but I’ve seen some stuff online saying reddit has been rather aggressive with trying to fight blockers
