Perhaps eventually someone could develop an automated process to port those subreddits over to saidit subs

i think it's doable. their api only goes back 1000 posts but it could be screen scraped.

I've always wanted it so the top 3 posts on /r/bad_cop_no_donut automatically get posted to /s/policemisconduct as new posts. I think that sort of feature could be useful all over saidit to help fill out some of the newer subs

If saidit had an API it would be pretty easy to set something up that would do this automatically, although it would just look really barren if you have loads of posts but no comments on anything

Good points. That's why I would only want to transplant a few a day, that way we would have the opportunity to comment on them and it won't just be a firehose.

Maybe copy the front page once a day?
