Dear Mozilla Team,

I hope this message finds you well. I would like to propose the idea of partnering with Christian Selig, the talented creator of the erstwhile Apollo for Reddit app.

Unfortunately, Apollo had to cease operations due to escalating API costs from Reddit, coupled with concerning treatment towards Christian Selig by Reddit.

However, this presents an opportunity for Mozilla to collaborate with Christian Selig and potentially resurrect Apollo as Mozilla's proprietary equivalent to Reddit.

By bringing together Selig's expertise in crafting an exceptional Reddit experience with Mozilla's commitment to privacy and open-source values, we have the chance to offer users a unique, privacy-focused alternative.

This collaboration could not only breathe new life into Apollo but also position Mozilla at the forefront of innovative, user-centric social media platforms.

I urge you to consider this partnership as a strategic move that aligns with Mozilla's principles and provides users with a compelling and privacy-conscious Reddit alternative.
