Did Reddit’s April Fool’s gag solve the issue of online hate speech?


Wow, this is so cool - watch the video attached within.

"Nations battled, voids came and went, and one million pixels said a lot about humanity.

More specifically, any Reddit user with an account created before March 31 could click on the zoomed-out canvas, then pick any of the million pixels and cover it with any of the colors in a 16-bit palette. Mousing over a spot would reveal its exact coordinates. Clicking that spot would place your chosen color there, at which point a five-minute lockout timer would begin. Once the timer ran out, you could paint a single pixel again, and so on."
