Raddle is here as an answer to the decisions contrary to the community of the Reddit corporation, which recently decided to stop publishing its source code as free software. In addition, it's raising some privacy concerns:
- The cookies from Reddit can track you accross different domains.
- As Reddit is located in the USA, the FBI has obtained and could obtain in the future all the information they want.
The main reason for the creation of Raddle seems to be, however, the censorship and the deletion of accounts from leftist groups, according to the explanation on the wiki page "History" from Raddle.
