Reddit is in flames at the moment. Following a stricter "anti-harassment" policy put in place by new CEO Ellen Pao, and the "imgur incident" yesterday (where imgur staff started arbitrarily deleting certain pictures that made it to the front page), a large subreddit called "fatpeoplehate" (which had more than 150,000 subscribers) has been banned.
The reaction of the reddit community is like nothing I have seen before. We're talking about a site-wide fire, and a lot of people there are seriously considering leaving reddit for places where freedom of speech is taken seriously and the users are not sacrificed on the altar of profit and political correctness. Reddit clone Voat will surely take advantage of this situation to grow its own userbase; what about Hubski?
