Reddit has closed two major alt-right subreddits:
Reddit today blocked two prominent alt-right subreddits over “the proliferation of personal and confidential information.” Commonly referred to as ‘doxing,’ it appears a user (or users) of r/altright and r/AlternativeRight intentionally disseminated personal information of the man believed to have punched alt-right mouthpiece Richard Spencer.
It’s worth noting that the ban wasn’t implemented because of the posters’ politics, it was because of their actions. And that’s as it should be.
