Reddit joins the marginalization of dissenting voices labeled as misinformation

... Septemtber 27th Reddit went on a surge of what it calls “quarantining”. Quarantining, in Reddit parlance, is putting certain boards behind warning screens, essentially placing a barrier between the public and the information. Some boards affected by this were r/TheRedPill and r/FULLCOMMUNISM (a full list of quarantined boards is available here).

Reddit is lumping. It is not sufficiently distinguishing. Many people will be psyched out by the warning screens. It's a common tactic leading up to outright banning of groups all lumped together as being anti-establishment. In this day and age, that means being anti-neocon.

Has Reddit been threatened? Is Reddit caving in, as so many others have done?
