Per Reddit custom, Assange announced the thread early, so that questions could be asked and upvoted to provide a list of popular questions to answer. Unfortunately for Assange, the most-upvoted questions are probably not the kind of thing he wants to answer:
In a break with the usual Reddit protocol, Assange is answering questions via a live Twitch feed, instead of typing out comment replies. That’s made it slightly easier for him to ignore the more probing questions, and thus far he’s made a couple of mostly-irrelevant comments on the Reddit thread.
