Reddit - are you serious?

Just got legal notice (attached) that we can't use the term "AMA" and that it's trademarked by Reddit. I don't know whether to be honored that they even bothered or annoyed. I think I'm both.

So I guess we should go with Q&A from now on?

Regardless, great timing guys. Also, that's a super old address...

Can we use "ama" then?

Congrats, Patrick! You know you made it when a once dead website comes at you to fun suck!

"AMAnything"
"AME" Ask me everything
"AMW" ask me whatever

Should double check who has rights to "Q&A"... don't want to get a cease and desist from MySpace ;)

I'm not savvy enough to write it for you (yet) but I bet you can have an autocorrect feature that detects "AMA" being typed into the topic title and correct it to AMAnything. I'm guessing you use Javascript here so there's the .replace() keyword but I'm not sure how to implement it into a text box.

@WallStreetOasis.com Buy some of their similar domain names when you can, like reddot.com and have it link to here. Probably would piss them off a bit

they actually went through the legal trouble to trademark this? I didn't think it was that creative. that's like trademarking a word, unreasonable...

Mar 18, 2020

What damages are they threatening?

Doubt they pursue legal action, its just a scary letter. No one is wasting resources going to court.

You should post on r/all, Reddit is a bunch of fucktards nowadays anyway.

Hmm...Bleacher Report uses it too.

You didn't attached the legal notice, but that's hilarious.

Mar 18, 2020

Can't stand Reddit or their userbase. Total garbage on that site...

Did they send you a bottle of Soylent with that legal notice?

Why waste resources (time or money) potentially defending the site? Not worth a minute of your valuable brain space. Another abbreviation will suffice.

I know the guys here will go neanderthal and say "dude, eff them, etc.," but they don't pay the bills.

Shows you the far reach and power of WSO - be proud. They feel threatened.

You should be honored, Lets just make it WSOAA for WSOAsksAnything or something like this. I also like the idea of automatically replacing AMA by something very similar.

I think you can still do Ask Me Anything just not AMA.
