In a company blog post, Ohanian also thanked the reddit community. "A year ago, they said it'd be futile. Today, we defeated opponents of net neutrality who have spent tens of millions of dollars every year lobbying government," the post said. "We defeated them by spending our time. Thank you."
Ohanian also shared the following e-mail from the president -- a thank-you note that attempts to capture some of reddit's quirkier nature:
Earlier today, the FCC voted to protect a free and open internet — the kind of internet that allows entrepreneurs to thrive and debates over duck-sized horses and horse-sized ducks to persist.This would not have happened without the activism and engagement of millions of Americans like you. And that was a direct result of communities like reddit.So to all the redditors who participated in this movement, I have a simple message: Thank you.
