Reddit Wields the Axe Against Web Hate Crime

    Two things here: (1) As noted, Reddit is not the government and can legally ban anything it wants to. The First Amendment applies only against the Government.
    (2) Even the First Amendment doesn’t protect all speech: “One cannot shout ‘fire’ in a crowded room,” is one; another is defamation, for instance, publicly and falsely accusing someone of crime in order to damage or destroy their reputation. (Although this conduct is permitted against public figures, such as political candidates, as is obnoxiously evident these days.)

    Psychopaths are not going to go away no matter how much you police the internet. Unless you shut down chat they will always be there. Also these sites only ban what THEY deem offensive. Personally I find blacks spewing racial hatred & threats of violence offensive but no site DARES to ban THEM. Ditto for the Muslim Jihad crowd.

    They are right the trolls have just announced their presence here.
    There are just too many sick and stupid people in the world today. My question is WHO DRESSES THEN IN THE MORNING OR WHEN EVER THEY LEAVE THEIR HOMES?
