All in the last hour. That’s coordinated. Wonder who’s next.

CRACKDOWN BEGINS: Reddit bans hundreds of subreddits for “hate speech” including The_Donald

Reddit’s New Retroactive Punishment

All communities on Reddit must abide by our content policy in good faith. We banned r/The_Donald because it has not done so, despite every opportunity. The community has consistently hosted and upvoted more rule-breaking content than average (Rule 1), antagonized us and other communities (Rules 2 and 8), and its mods have refused to meet our most basic expectations. Until now, we’ve worked in good faith to help them preserve the community as a space for its users—through warnings, mod changes, quarantining, and more.
