I’m assuming you know what Reddit is.

Here’s my whoa moment: Reddit is like an economy! People ‘sell’ content for karma. If the poster is desperate for karma, they’ll re-post. If not a lot of users are upvoting or downvoting, then each vote is worth more (a post with 20 upvotes can be number one on the front page, if every other post only has 10).

Could Reddit go into a recession?

I wonder if one can launder upvotes? I know upvotes can be bought (but that’s just pathetic).
