Reddit banning certain communities perceived to be "offensive"

  • Social networking website Reddit is banning certain communities that were perceived to be "offensive" to its general users.

    Besides, common users will not be able to see several other communities as they would be hidden from the general users, TechCrunch reported.

    Reddit chief executive officer (CEO) Steve Huffman has announced the new user policies, which included details for how Reddit would be "quarantining" certain communities and banning ones which were particular awful, including the infamous r/CoonTown.

    Quarantined communities will be hidden from the general Reddit community and only visible to members of those specific subreddits that opt-in. (Source: IANS)
