Last week a Reddit user exposed that the moderators of the ‘technology’ subreddit had effectively banned articles that used terms such as ‘National Security Agency’, ‘Bitcoin’, ‘Net Neutrality’, ‘Snowden’, ‘GCHQ’, and even ‘startup’. Yesterday the “Front Page of the Internet” removed /r/Technology from its own front page menus. It’s a continuation of a theme for Reddit–last year a similar censorship scandal affected the /r/Politics subreddit, raising serious concerns over transparency and the social nature of the news site.
