Dang... I used to love Reddit because it was a good way to keep in touch with the sentiment of the internet. I almost always browsed /r/all where I could see the most popular posts, free from filters or bias.

Now I can't rely on Reddit to give me an unbiased view. I could accept when subreddits sharing illegal content were banned. I wouldn't have wanted redditors to end up in prison. But these new policies Reddit is enforcing... I don't agree with most of what FPH did, but they weren't doing anything illegal. It would have been so easy for people to filter out FPH on /r/all with RES.

Instead they compromised the integrity of the site and went with the nuclear option. Unfortunate.
