Reddit Bans Subreddit Investigating Podesta Emails Link to Pedophilia, But Keeps Pro-Pedo Subreddit /r/pedofriends…while Reddit banned /r/pizzagate for witch hunting, it seems to have no problem being a nexus for pedophiles to meet up, chat and get together for “R4Rs” — online solicitations to do things for one another, often of a sexual nature.
No word has come forth from Reddit admins about whether they will continue to tolerate pedophilia. They seem more concerned that a subreddit might identify pedophiles within the US government than that pedophiles use Reddit as a private forum, and at this point, that is all we know.
Reddit CEO Steve Huffman today admitted that he had edited Reddit user comments that criticized and insulted him, wielding his power to anonymously change references to his own username, and replace them with moderators of the pro-Donald Trump subreddit, r/the_donald.
Huffman — who posts on the site as “spez” — admitted to the transgression after being called out by users of r/the_donald, saying he was inspired to edit the comments after a spate of insults emanating from the pro-Trump subreddit. “I messed with the “fuck u/spez” comments, replacing “spez” with r/the_donald mods for about an hour,” Huffman said, indicating that the only thing he secretly altered was the target of the insults.
