Reddit bans alt-right community

Reddit has banned the alt-right community (the r/altright subreddit) from its platform due to a violation of its content policy.

“This subreddit was banned due to a violation of our content policy, specifically, the proliferation of personal and confidential information,” said Reddit.

Reddit said in a statement there is no single solution to the issues and it is engaging with its community to improve everyone’s experience.

“We strive to be a welcoming, open platform for all by trusting our users to maintain an environment that cultivates genuine conversation and adheres to our content policy.”

“We are very clear in our site terms of service that posting of personal information can get users banned from Reddit and we ask our communities not to post content that harasses or invites harassment.”
