In fact, for a website that made its name crusading against the stifling anti-piracy SOPA bill, Reddit users’ and administrators have proved surprisingly adept at censorship when it comes to this article. When the story was first published Friday afternoon, Reddit’s administrators censored the URL site-wide for about a day. (They did the same thing with Jezebel’s story on creepshots last week.) This was supposedly done because our story violated a Reddit rule against posting identifying information of Redditors (“doxing,” in Reddit terminology), not because its contents were embarrassing to them. But on Saturday Reddit administrator Erik Martin admitted to Buzzfeed the was a mistake and lifted the ban. Since then, Reddit’s volunteer moderators, who are given full control over the subreddits they moderate, have been banning users simply for submitting links that mention the controversy.
