Matt Gray Reddit

I don't use reddit. Please don't set up a subreddit about me, The Technical Difficulties, or on my behalf.

I don't want a place designed to discuss me or my life. While some people who are publicly online have no problem with fandoms and their hyperfocus on everything they do on and off the internet, I am not one of them. I enjoy making things and sharing them with the world, and am very grateful to have those things appreciated. I would rather it was left at that.

This is especially true on a site like reddit, with its design around hyperfocus on topics and reputation for toxicity, harassment, racism, and invading the private lives of others who use the internet.

Thank you to the moderator of the /r/MattGray subreddit to agreeing to my request to close it.

I realise this may not have been anyone's intention when using the subreddit, but I don't want to be seen to be associated with reddit and the more damaging parts of the community.

I have had people publicly post parts of my personal life before before on the internet and the fact that I now there's a subreddit there where this could happen again makes me feel uneasy. On top of that, this may also impact my business relationships with reddit being seen as a red flag.

Please do not set up a subreddit to replace this one.
Please do not set up a subreddit for The Technical Difficulties.

Thank you for understanding.
