I think what's crazy is how anti-free speech some of the articles are. They claim that Reddit is a business and can censor what it wants, but then in the same article, they will say that leaving Reddit is an over-reaction. Yeah, if a business centered around discussion is going to censor what I say, I'm going to leave. Even if I would not normally say things they would censor, if they have made it clear that they will just censor anything that they do no like, then it's time to leave.

First amendment doesn't protect private censorship so you therefore have no right to complain!!!111!!!1

It's just as bad as TV shows that won't bad talk any products to please advertisers or news shows that softball politicians and avoid any hard hitting news so they don't lose access. For the sake of profit we get lied to about products, politicians not held accountable, and now community driven websites censored for the sake of more ad revenue.

That was something I told a reddit defender yesterday, how sad I am that somehow free-speech has been equated to hate speech. It's amazing at the same time as it is completely disheartening.
