That's why he had to be taken out.

The powerful dreamers are always attacked.

Aron Swartz death was The Day the Music Died for Reddit.

I once posted a documentary about Swartz on Reddit, it shot to the top but was taken down by mods within hours. Very ironic

What they are doing is more illegal than what he did. Fiduciary responsibility. They are admitting to activities that hamper their growth.

  • discussing of shadowbanning EnoughSandersSpam links for the public

  • [We want a] "Presentable reddit for advertisers" [so to] "Ensure the_donald isn't the first thing new users see"

Even for a dumbass like me, this sure looks shady.

How did you come across this?

Have you guys seen the new subreddit called /r/popular. It's an attack on the_donald and it came out mid feb like they talked about.

The talk about doing all this to make reddit more advertisement friendly reminds me of what happened to digg when they tried to do that with 4.0.

If it's of any solace, in spite of all of the admin meddling, the actual content and voting is swinging wildly away from the PC line, especially the past few months. They get more and more desperate, but people are just getting pissed and fighting back harder. They can't keep up with all of the free speech advocates who haven't abandoned the site for Voat.

They plan to suppress the_donald and other "unpopular" subreddits? If they are so "unpopular," then why the fuck do they have to be suppressed?

Unpopular to the advertisers, not the users.

There was some talk right after the election that maybe Madison Avenue was not in touch with normal Americans.

It seems their efforts to steer, or socially engineer the average American is not working, and they're going to now suppress dissent. Reddit is the best place to do it because its the corpus of where normal people go online. Its one of the few sites people would casually tell their coworkers they use.

My favorite "we want to maintain an image of independence and impartiality that aligns with reddit's philosophy". What a bunch of fucking jokes over there at Reddit, complete hypocrites, that site is pure cancer may it died with CNN.

It's become clear that Reddit, at least anything accessible without way too much insider knowledge, is being turned into a carefully manipulated and constructed narrative engine, one to present exactly what certain advertisers and political sponsors want, and that they have moved well beyond feeling any shame for utterly tainting prostituting Swartz' vision into something gross and septic. Watching the sorting algorithms turn personal home pages into shit over the years, to drive people to /r/all, and then /r/all becoming an echo chamber and safe space for one specific political faction (and a particularly vile one at that, one that cries fascist constantly, while behaving too often in a manner that would make Mussolini or Ceausescu or any other brutal totalitarian nod in approval) is just sickening.

I can see finally people starting to wake up, but they should have 20 years ago when they started telling us within 2 hours of our college matriculation ceremonies we were rapists and some racists weren't racists because their ethnicity or culture made them special.

I'd want to know where this is from. Second time I see it today but it's clearly an admin. Talks about the announcements made earlier this month and just no
