Reddit Banned White-Supremacist Subreddits

A popular social news site has banned 6 of its own subforums that formed the core of its white-supremacist community, including “CoonTown”, “WatchNiggersDie”, “bestofcoontown”, “koontown”, “CoonTownMods” and “CoonTownMeta”. It should be mentioned that more subforums have been banned since, because Reddit users tried to recreate them and got shut down in turn. The company claimed that the abovementioned subforums existed solely to annoy other redditors and generally make Reddit worse for everyone.

Reddit’s new CEO announced the bans in a post on the website, in a bundle with the introduction of a new form of sanction for “extremely offensive” subforums – a kind of “quarantining” a community, i.e. applying a set of restrictions so its content will only be viewable to users who explicitly opt in.

As for white-supremacist subreddits, called the “chimpire”, they have long benefited from the Reddit’s light-touch approach to moderation. Before getting banned, they had more than 20,000 subscribers, making it second popular online after notorious race-hate forum Stormfront.

At the same time, Reddit explained that the subforums weren’t banned for their content but rather because of a disproportionate amount of time the site administration had to spend dealing with them. Despite Reddit tightening up its moderation policy, white-supremacist subreddits avoided moderation. First Reddit banned sexualized images of minors, then sexualized pictures taken without permission, and then “involuntary porn”.

In the beginning of summer, the site admins banned 5 subreddits for encouraging harassment and “doxing” (sharing of personal data). This move sparked complaints from users at their seemingly arbitrary nature and led to a campaign against Reddit’s interim CEO, Ellen Pao, which eventually led to her departure last month. But the new site administration confirmed those bans would stay in place.

There was another controversial subreddit called “Rapingwomen”, which was also banned shortly after a new CEO was appointed in July. However, some of the most notorious subreddits managed to avoid both shutdown and quarantine. Such groups as “killingwomen” and “cutefemalecorpses” that accounted for more than 4,000 subscribers are still openly operating as they did before this latest announcement.

Carjacker avatarYeah, but they don't dare touch any Black hate groups or Black racist forums. Politically Correct, self-hating, 'white guilt' at it's finest. Good ol' Liberal agenda at work.

robbow123 avatarNow that we've heard from the extra torrent racists.

I don't use Reddit just because. But good for them despite their excuses for not banning for content.
But I agree with Racist Carjacker, if there are forums that black racists use then they should be banned too.

It's not expensive to set up a simple forum, so the racists are not being denied their freedom of speech. But freedom of speech does not mean that any outlet has to give them a place for their disgusting views. Where's that can do spirit.
Or are these racists Lazy? I don't know

May you always be in good health
