Please put this as the first comment on the reddit post.
The one you started the thread with.
On a more meta note, when people look at a discussion on reddit and see zero
comments, they move on. Having a comment there saying briefly what the link is
about and why the reader might be interested in it is far more effective at
getting readers to spend some time reading your article.
It also gives you an opportunity to shape the discussion in a direction you'd
like. If some troll makes the first post, it sets a trollish tone and can
completely ruin all the effort you put into the article.
Don't leave things to chance!
