  • World Leaders Denounce Big Tech Censorship of President Donald Trump

    The Epoch Times ^ | January 12, 2021 | Victoria Kelly-Clark
    Political elites worldwide have criticized big tech companies for banning President Donald Trump from their social media platforms. At present, the president has been banned from Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Snapchat, Reddit, and Instagram. Twitter permanently removed Trump’s account, saying that his recent posts were in violation of the “Glorification of Violence Policy.” German Chancellor Angela Merkel called Twitter’s ban on Trump “problematic,” and said that freedom of opinion is an essential right of “elementary significance,” her spokesperson, Steffen Siebert, said on Jan 11. “This fundamental right can be intervened in, but according to the law and within the framework defined...

    I was participating in a thread talking about Hunter Biden's videos. I told them to duckduckgo "gnews" but don't expect to see any child porn. I got ban with this generic message: Your account has been permanently suspended for posting involuntary pornography. Posting any sexual or suggestive photos or videos of a person without their consent is not only a violation of privacy, but is against site-wide rules. This includes media that is faked or taken without permission (e.g. creepshots). Please familiarize yourself with Reddit’s Content Policy, especially our policies against involuntary pornography, to make sure you understand the rules...
  • Forget What Gender Activists Tell You. Here’s What Medical Transition Looks Like

    At a recent gathering, a daughter’s friend told us, “I’m probably trans because I don’t like female puberty.” This instantly got my attention, because I have known this child for years, and I never saw any indication of her being trans. I innocently asked her why she would say that. Was it a joke, perhaps? She replied, “I don’t like my boobs growing, and Reddit says I’m probably trans.” That night, I tracked down these Reddit exchanges, and my jaw dropped when I saw how many people and organizations were heavily pushing the possibility of her being trans. But perhaps...

Reddit users who keep tabs on potential hate crime hoaxes via the popular subreddit are met with a label notifying them that “r/hatecrimehoaxes has been banned from Reddit.” The page also notes that the page was banned for “violating Reddit’s rule against promoting hate.”

    Ghislaine Maxwell could have been secretly operating one of the most powerful Reddit accounts of all time, according to a widely shared conspiracy theory on the website. There is no definitive proof that the account is run by Ghislaine but hundreds of users have pointed out the u/maxwellhill handle has fallen silent since her July 2 arrest on sex trafficking charges related to Jeffrey Epstein. In a Twitter post YouTuber Joe Leonard wrote: 'Ghislane Maxwell was the first person on reddit to hit 1 million karma LMAO! She's the #8 karma to this day.

    We can no longer allow any content that shows POC as the aggressor. Due to the new reddit updates to it's policies and rules, as well as administrator conversations with users; we can no longer allow any posts, comments, or other content that shows a POC as the aggressor. This is considered hate speech and/or harassment towards an important minority group and is no longer allowed. This absolutely means any videos, as well as news reports, photos, personal stories, data/statistics, police reports, or any other form of media.
  • Former Silicon Valley VC says Ghislaine Maxwell attended an investor party in 2011 despite reports 'about her supplying underage girls for sex'

    Former Reddit CEO Ellen Pao says Ghislaine Maxwell was rubbing elbows with Silicon Valley's elites in 2011 — and Pao believes people suspected Maxwell's ties to child trafficking at the time and didn't care. Maxwell was arrested last week and is awaiting trial for four criminal charges related to procuring and transporting minors for illegal sex acts. Prosecutors say Maxwell participated in a sex trafficking operation alongside her partner Jeffrey Epstein. Pao, a former partner at venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins, said Maxwell was at the firm's holiday party in 2011, more than two years after Epstein was first convicted...
  • Only hate against “majority” groups to be allowed under Reddit’s new identity-based hate speech rules

    07/02/2020 6:11:04 PM PDT · by MNDude · 31 replies
    “Marginalized or vulnerable groups include, but are not limited to, groups based on their actual and perceived race, color, religion, national origin, ethnicity, immigration status, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, pregnancy, or disability. These include victims of a major violent event and their families.” It’s the next part that’s alarming: “While the rule on hate protects such groups, it does not protect all groups or all forms of identity. For example, the rule does not protect groups of people who are in the majority or who promote such attacks of hate.” Like other online platforms, Reddit has a set of...
  • Reddit bans pro-Trump forum The_Donald and other communities that promote hate

    CNN ^ | June 29, 2020 | Kaya Yurieff
    On Monday, the social networking site said subreddits -- or forums -- and users that promote hate based on "identity or vulnerability" will be banned. As part of the policy change, Reddit is initially banning about 2,000 subreddits, including "The_Donald," a popular community supportive of President Donald Trump, where users often shared racist, misogynistic, homophobic and conspiracy content. Reddit said "The_Donald" forum has consistently broken its rules, antagonized other communities, and the moderators have refused to meet Reddit's "most basic expectations." The company also said it has given the community warnings and changed its moderators. In 2019, it "quarantined" the...

    SAN FRANCISCO — Reddit, one of the largest social networking and message board websites, on Monday banned its biggest community devoted to President Trump as part of an overhaul of its hate speech policies. The community or “subreddit,” called “The_Donald,” is home to more than 790,000 users who post memes, viral videos and supportive messages about Mr. Trump. Reddit executives said the group, which has been highly influential in cultivating and stoking Mr. Trump’s online base, had consistently broken its rules by allowing people to target and harass others with hate speech. “Reddit is a place for community and belonging,...

    Jim Jordan, Elise Stefanik and Nikki Haley all have something in common, other than a strong affection towards President Trump. The three Republican politicians joined social media app Parler this week, adding their profiles to a site that’s emerged as the new digital stomping ground for anti-Twitter conservatives. Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas arrived earlier this month and Rep. Devin Nunes of California started in February, while Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky has been a member since 2018, the year the app launched. “It’s about time y’all joined me on @parler_app,” Paul tweeted on Wednesday. “What’s taking the rest of...

    Reddit’s premier gathering place for all things UFO—was automatically blocking posts that used the words “Navy” or “Pentagon,” and was also deleting posts about a recent incident in Brazil. This censorship has led to infighting on the subreddit. /r/UFO moderator axolotl_peyotl cried foul when he noticed other moderators culling posts with the word “Brazil” days after people filmed a UFO above Magé When axolotl_peyotl checked the automod, he found that ‘Brazil’ had recently been added to the list of restricted words. “I could also see the history of the edits on the spam filter.

    The Federalist ^ | April 28, 2020 | Auguste Meyrat
    Instead of being a vital technology empowering average people to learn and act for themselves, the internet now mostly succeeds in making users feel small, paranoid, and helpless. Some people might take issue with Facebook’s decision to remove posts attempting to organize protests against shelter-in-place orders, Twitter’s stance against presumed misinformation, and major news outlets acting as mouthpieces for the Chinese government. But by now, most people hardly blink at these heavy-handed moves to control public speech. They are told that dissent is either misinformation or hate speech, and, in the midst of a pandemic, such freedoms are positively dangerous.This...

    Members of the Reddit subforum r/The_Donald are claiming that Reddit officials are staging a coup against their community. The controversial subreddit has been quarantined since last year due to “repeated misbehavior.” According to a notice on the r/The_Donald homepage, this means the subreddit is “restricted due to significant issues with reporting and addressing violations of Reddit’s rules against violence and other aspects of the Content Policy.” Users have to confirm they want to view the content behind this wall. Now, longtime moderators of r/The_Donald say they’re losing administrative powers, and they’re questioning Reddit’s intentions. “In the last 24 hours Reddit...

    From the r/The_Donald subreddit "(Former, as of minutes ago, top mod of the last few years here) First they changed upvote algorithms to keep us from reaching the masses. Next, they outright censored us from /all. Then, they quarantined us, to make it difficult to even see our words, much less spread them. Then, one by one, they added new rules to stifle what would could even say behind the quarantine. Users were sitewide banned, automod size increased to prevent you from speaking freely. Still not enough, they decided to start banning us for even liking content we see, things...
