Using a webhook for the Reddit post relay #391

We're currently relaying the new Reddit posts (and the weekly top posts overview) as regular messages to a text channel. Since the subreddit sees frequent activity, I propose to change this to a method that uses a webhook to post the messages to the channel.

This has two advantages:

  1. Webhooks use a different rate limit pool than regular messages;
  2. We can use a stylized author icon and display_name

The latter is not really important, but will look nice; the former is the biggest advantage of this change.

This should not be difficult to implement, although an admin+ needs to create the proper webhook for the relevant channel.
