I couldn't tell you why, but I just do not like mango at all. Fresh mango, dried mango, mango drinks, mango smoothies. I don't like it, period.
It's hard to describe how it tastes to me. It's like mangos never figured out how to cultivate that refreshing, sweet taste that other fruits have. Mango tastes like it might've been a decent fruit before, but someone washed all the mangos in existence with cheap dish soap and didn't quite rinse them enough, so now they have this still fruity but also slightly dish soapy flavor.
Ok but not really but once again, our community held together and endured the face of corruption. Corporate juggernauts marginalized us, rampant profiteers sought forth to influence us in hopes to acquire us. The community rallied to support /u/zjz to defend us but circumstances aren't aligned at this time for him to fulfill his duty. He is not a martyr but one of many guardians that oversee now almost 9 million of you. People talk like his bots are what's important. Truth is that it is how much of his life he dedicates to this thankless task that makes him an asset. How he spends the time getting to know as many of you on a personal level lets you know this sub isn't run by robots but people.
A repeat of history haunted us recently. Some of the mods took risks to make a stand against a repeat. I stood with them because our resolve is unwavering in protecting the integrity of the community. Our moderators are the biggest obstacle for those wanting to take advantage but this story isn't about us moderators. This is another story about you. We are here for the community, not the other way around. The ones who didn't understand are finally gone. Those of us who remain are left to repair the tarnished culture of moderators past. While temptation became a challenge for them, there is no denying their past contributions. We wish them the very best.
There have been many opportunists popping up everywhere pretending they /r/wallstreetbets. From fake merch to fake discords, fake social media accounts, and subreddits. If it's not linked here, it does not officially represent the subreddit. They say that imitation is a form of flattery. Clout chasing is for clowns.
So how are things different? We hope to change the way we do things internally, getting rid of secretive groups within the ranks and commit to open communication where there was none previously. The mistrust lingers heavily but I'm confident that our goals are aligned and hope this will the basis in which we will heal any wounds. Any differences will be worked out, not just set aside so that we may remain one cohesive unit in support of the largest community of traders, investors of all ages, and experience. When we help each other, support one another we can all persevere through anything. That how we win. Winners give off an aura that fuels phenomenal growth in our community as well as our wallets.
This is your story to tell. Don't let them tell it for you.

I never had mango growing up. When I moved out I started buying the frozen chunks and I really liked those. But today I bought a fresh one on impulse and man, it was a totally different experience. It was perfectly ripe and so aromatic. It has a heavenly floral smell. And it was so different to eat it too. I could just scrape it right off the seed with my teeth and it was so perfectly juicy and sweet. It was basically nature’s jello. I never knew such decadence existed. Truly a life changing experience.
