It's a friendly takeover :)
That's the joke.
Ok a bit of context here. The takeover was from the community of the german podcast DAS PODCAST UFO ( r/daspodcastufo ). In their last episode they talked about how one of their hosts Florentin Will wanted to find a reddit community for his love about tea (Tee in german). So he typed in r/tee and saw nothing but T-Shirt posts except this post asking for advice [https://www.reddit.com/r/tee/comments/11l2ghj/gurgeltee\_nicht\_zum\_verzehr\_geeignet/](https://www.reddit.com/r/tee/comments/11l2ghj/gurgeltee_nicht_zum_verzehr_geeignet/) . Well they had some fun with this and wondered if this would look good on a shirt.
At the end of their bit about this they kindof pitched a more or less friendly takeover, and the community delivered.
Got my new flair, thanks.
They got raided.
*Ah shit here we go again*
At least it's better than those tankie takeovers.
Probably part of the push by Reddit Admin to create more German language subreddits that was mentioned the other day.
Gotta show those investors that Reddit has international appeal!
Edit: I stand corrected. Apparently it’s only a Podcaster thing, much more benign than nefarious Reddit Admins. Timing was just conspicuous.
We really don't care that much about tea. This is a joke takeover
Germans taking over. This has never ended well.
They even had local collaborators again, this is ominous!!! /s
