“I think it’s pretty cool that Reddit is doing this IPO offer to their mods and users,” a Reddit user who asked me to identify him as Kevon tells me. “It’s a nice little thank you that actually may have some monetary value.”

On the surface this is cool, but this is also a way to protect themselves against liability. Reddit knows that the mods acting unfavorably could potentially ruin their IPO.
