Reddit, the link-sharing platform and message board known for its influential role in Internet culture, has censored The_Donald, a community of 750,000 Donald Trump supporters.

The community, one of the most active sources of grassroots support for the President on the Internet, has been placed in “quarantine” mode by the administrators of Reddit. Visitors to the page are met with a screen asking them if they wish to view the page.

Content from quarantined communities will not appear for members who are not subscribed to the board, known as a subreddit.

Interesting, We have laws against an entity owning too many newspapers and TV stations, or a combination that would saturate a market. Seems like the same logic would apply to search engines, social media, et al. Maybe we need a Teddy to "Standard Oil" some Google, Facebook, Reddit, and so on.

reddit updated their code today, and now when I try to view this community, I cant get past the "warning, quarantine. are you sure you want to proceed?" page blocker. it works the first time, but the next post you view will bring the warning back, and then you cant get past it. I tried multiple browsers.
It worked ok earlier today.

Very odd "coincidence" that this happens during the dem debate....


* this only happens if you're not logged in to reddit. if you login, you can use it no problem. still, this would be a good counter to the wave of publicity the channel got by being quarantined + news articles about it. the traffic is probably often from non-reddit users, who may want to take a quick peak at the channel. they would get frustrated and leave, not knowing that signing up and logging in would solve the problem.

Fuck this. Freedom of speech is the FIRST amendment. This shit HAS TO STOP.

So you want the government, the very entity who's responsible for constantly violating your first amendment right to enforce it with a private company?

How 'bout you vote with your mouse by taking your traffic elsewhere(freedom of choice).

reddit is a LONG way from Aaron Swartz. I believe they're now owned by the Chinese. If you're on anything other than r/conspiracy with an actual opinion, expect to immediately be banned from the sub.

This only happened because all 750,000 supporters are in Russia. Trump has no American supporters any more.

You must think all Americans share your POV entirely.

WATCH Donald Trump beat Kamala Harris in the general, if she is nominated. Good chance she will be.

That all depends on how fast Kamala's sucking muscles get tired.

What are you saying? Kamala will give Trump a BJ to drop out?

Doesn't work since the libs can take down Gab.

I think Gab's weak point is that they are taking money from investors.

Investors get a say, and they don't like to alienate liberal advertisers.

Then we'll have to hear for years how a racist sexist nation stopped the first black woman president from being elected.

Nominate Tulsi, then we can have a real debate on issues instead of this BS.

Why would a billionaire playboy who has done beauty queens and supermodels want to stick it in the same place as mayor Willie Brown?

Yes, you are right. Trump does not need another woman suing for the right to brag about being done by him.

tell people about patrick.net

nothing better than a free speech forum.
Patrick just needs to add some ads somewhere to pay the bills for running the site and this place is as good as any other forum.

Patrick should get an Amazon affiliate link and let the regulars buy their stuff through it. When Rin buys his sex doll, Patrick will take a $700 cut

Well, in Reddit's defense, many of them are quite deplorable.
