A site you should go back to if you came from there. Just make a mental note of never going there if you didn't. It is a horrible site that censors a lot of subjects like feminism yet it has dedicated groups for very immoral things like incest, pretend rape and subjects like that.

History Of Censorship

Reddit was founded by Steve Huffman, Alexis Ohanian and Aaron Swartz in 2005. Aaron Swartz was very pro free speech. The site become heavily censored shortly after Aaron Swartz died in 2013. The censorship was somewhat subtle at first with any reference to NSA and other select subject being removed from groups like /r/Networking.

The censorship become outright ridiculous with the removal of political groups like "The Donald". Donald Trump became president despite obvious election interference from tech-giants like Reddit owner Advance Publications.

Reddit begun banning all links to the investigative financial news website Zero Hedge in October 2020.
