Users buying special membership with Moons to become exempt from age/karma restrictions is a terrible move!
Why did we gate keep new users with age and karma restrictions for so long, only to now allow all new users to just buy their way to sub membership and post freely here if they are willing to spend a few bucks? This is terrible for the future of the sub.
Also 1000 Moons ($50) vs $5 makes no sense. Anyone will be willing to spend $5, spin up hundreds of accounts, purchase special membership and shill their coins here. This proposal was clearly not thought through, nor was it voted by the people here. While we are constantly voting on proposals to make the quality of the sub better, we are hit by one proposal that seeks to undo all the good stuff we have done here lately.
Its not that hard to get some reddit karma if one contributes good stuff. But now with this special membership, any shill can post their low quality stuff just by buying their way in!
It should be rolled back immediately and people should actually vote for such proposals if they are to pass and become the new rules.
