Users complain company is selectively enforcing rules Company cites takedown notices with which it must comply. The social news platform Reddit has banned s which allowed users to view, post and share stolen images of celebrities.
The banning followed six days of huge traffic — reportedly more than m views — and mounting criticism that Reddit was facilitating the humiliation of Jennifer LawrenceKate Upton and Kirsten Dunst, among other celebrities. This same practice was occurring with the underage photos, requiring our constant intervention … it became obvious that we were either going to have to watch these subreddits constantly, or shut them down. We chose the latter. Some of the leaked images, obtained when hackers broke into the cloud-based storage systems of more than celebrities, include the Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney, which would be classified as child pornography.
It said a ban would not not solve the problem entirely but mitigate the crisis. The ban drew mixed responses.
Some users questioned why the platform left other s with offensive content, such as sex with dogs, or racist rants against African Americans in Ferguson, or calls for the massacre of Palestinians. Others accused the noticeboard of waiting until it reaped huge traffic before taking action.
Wong said he sympathised with the victims of the stolen images but that Reddit would not change existing site content policies. The role and responsibility of a government differs from that of a private corporation, in that it exercises restraint in the usage of its powers.
Individuals, he added, were responsible for their own moral actions. You choose what to read. You choose what kind of subreddit to create and what kind of rules you will enforce. In a subsequent clarification, Reddit said circumstances changed around the time it posted the blog. It apologised for the disarray.
