Censorship

Reddit, to quote one subscriber "has been compromised for a very long time".[1] It has been, and presumably still is, subject to various forms of censorship.[2] and the official rules for how the site works are not followed with posts of deep political relevance.[3]

Wikispooks

On 30 March 2017, a user posted a link to the Wikispooks page on spooks, with the caption "Check out "wikispooks" for a disturbing cast of characters." The next day, the comment was still visible, but the user had been deleted.[4]

Pizzagate

On 24 November 2016, Reddit banned the sub-reddit /r/PizzaGate "due to a violation of our content policy. Specifically, the proliferation of personal and confidential information. We don’t want witchhunts on our site."[5][6] The PizzaGate investigation was continued at voat.co[7] and by the Corbett Report,[8] leading to comments about the "Wrong side of history" and the Streisand effect.[9]

Funding

Investors include Marc Andreessen, Peter Thiel, Ron Conway and Jared Leto.
