Anyone know of an alternative way to access the database? Say if you just wanted to download a full archive of your own comments? It'd have been nice if we'd have gotten a warning but I expect they couldn't give us one.
Yeah, the Reddit execs are all interested in permanently shutting down Pushshift without any "if"s or "but"s. They want to keep removed content removed.
The only time they ever listened to complaints was when they hired an actual pedophile as a reddit admin. And that was only because it gave them bad press.
Sum up of pretty much any commercial company these days. Users? Nah, don’t care. Money? Yes please. Disgusting, since without the users, they’re done.
Do you think that the users as a whole all want their data to be distributed by a service that doesn't care about their rights?
Have you read their policies? They get full, revocable rights to any content you post here. If you are lucky enough to live in a country that cares, you can request that your data be deleted, and that will kind of happen, but otherwise, they retain the rights to your data to use as they please for life.
