Nothing more beautiful than restricting freedom of speech.

It's not free speech. Reddit has a right to slow or stop their users and calling for death can be illegal in some cases.

If that's the reason T_D gets quarantined, I can only imagine that many more will follow.

Still, surprised it took this long to happen.

Edit: Apparently this happened because MMFA threw a shitfit lmao, of course it's fucking MMFA

Yeah, MMFA pointed out the obvious: T_D had a consistent problem with violence and genocide advocacy. And because big tech only reacts to dubiously legal content in their platforms when actual journalists make a stink about it...

But I forgot that you have an irrational hatred of the entire journalistic profession and you only care about right-wing extremism when it gets deplatformed. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

No, you see, T_D seriously talking about killing Muslims, immigrants, "degenerates" and cops is free speech. But when a leftist subreddit jokes about wedgies and milkshakes, that's horrifying advocacy for violence and it cannot stand.

And quarantining T_D is fully within the bounds of that certain amount. FFS, it's not like they banned the subreddit.

It'd be great if they were consistent with it at least. Of course that would piss off all the lefties when their subs started getting banned or quarantined for the same things and will never happen.

Give it some time and it will be irregardless of whether they break any rules or not. DebateFascism got quarantined and despite being very civil and having very strong moderation that clamped down hard on anything that broke the rules still got banned eventually. It's all about politics, not actual rules enforcement.

My impression was that this particular subreddit had been given considerable leniency compared to others for quite some time.

Being linked to a notable figure ain't an eternal free pass.

Not really. Pretty much every major political subreddit has problems with incitement and/or hate speech.

Interesting. I do wonder if reddit is going to join the Trump is evil train. I couldn imagine a lot of schadenfreude about the plebbitors fate though in other corners of the internets.

r/The_Donald, bad as it is, isn't filled filled with that much incitement or hate speech iirc. You can find it if you're looking for it, but it's not every other post or comment. Much like most other political subs.

CTH, LSC, Anarchism and a bunch of others would be quarantined or banned too if the rules were applied even somewhat consistently. I know that's too much to hope for in the tech world, but it would still be nice to see.

Far more right wing subreddits would be banned if they were even more consistent. They advocate crime and murder very often. If the the three you mentioned deserve to be banned, so does nearly every politics discussion. The moderators may quarantine LSC just to make it seem more balanced, but the reactionaries of reddit break rules constantly. Detached liberal moderators who want some element of "fairness" and "freedom" to be faked and displayed only go after ones that gain enough controversy and then ones that look similar enough as their opposite so that it looks equal. Thtas really the only compromise tha happens. Either neo-Nazis let trolls break laws and kill people or neoliberals ruin things with indecisiveness.
