A few more details:The situation is as follows, the moderators of /r/Ukpolitics set the subreddit to private last night. This was not a decision they took lightly, but one that was made to protect both the users and moderators of /r/ukpolitics.
A moderator posted an article from the Spectator - which contained a three-word mention, in passing, of a minor British public figure ( who was expelled from both the Liberal Democrats and Green Party) - this moderator was permanently suspended from Reddit (and later reinstated after we contacted the admins) for "doxxing" as a result.
As they had no idea what had happened, or why posting this article resulted in a permanent suspension, the mods of /r/Ukpolitics took the emergency step of making the subreddit private and immediately contacting the admins for clarification. They took this step to protect both the users of the subreddit, and themselves, from further action by the Reddit admin staff.
It later became apparent that Reddit has hired the individual as an Reddit admin, and were banning people from discussing the employees past to protect their employee from harassment.
Like the /r/Ukpolitics mods we would ask the following, in order to protect your account from getting terminated by Reddit:
• Do not name this individual, at all. Doing so may result in your account being banned by the admins.
We are obviously extremely concerned by these developments and expect Reddit to explain this situation.
The Streisand effect is now in full swing.
I went and listened to (the first minute) of this, because I'm apparently a masochist. It's not... like ear-bleeding-ly bad, but it's vapid, they've done some incredibly weird post-processing to the vocal line, and the verse has like three notes, it's practically a chant. It's boring and dumb, but it's just rather beige - it elicits no emotions from me whatsoever, it barely registers a 'meh.'Found a new song I hate.
