In 2014, I wrote a blog post (http://minimaxir.com/2014/02/moved-temporarily/) calling out Imgur's shady redirect practices on Facebook/Twitter, with a warning that things will get chaotic if they try that tactic on Reddit. Guess I was right?

Notably, when that post was submitted to Reddit, it got eviscerated, nothing that "hey, they provide a service for free, they deserve ad revenue!"
