    reddit may feel differently. this isn't like stormfront. this isn't just inflammatory talk. these are accusations of violent felonies made against very powerful and well-connected people, and the mainstream press has made it clear they're going to defend these people right down the line, immaterial of their guilt or innocence. reddit can't take on the washington post, the new york times, and the democratic party all at once on the precept that, oh, social media can't be sued.

    i imagine the first sources uncovering the catholic church pedophile ring experienced similar misgivings.

    I would love to see anyone try to go after Reddit.

    They would get crucified. Reddit isn't Twitter or Facebook.

    apparently not. because reddit saw what was going on with the MSM backing podesta and alefantis and caved.

    it's not like they actually provided any evidence or reasoning that the evidence is falsified. neither has anyone else. they simply say it's preposterous (as though pedophile rings were like space aliens and Planet X, they never actually happen) and close ranks.

    really it's more evidence that the rumors are true than that they're false. believe me, there are things bigger than reddit, and a few basement-dwelling conspiracy theorists are not among those things.

    even if they ARE well moderated, that doesn't mean they're capable of determining the truth or falsity of claims like this. you'd really need subpoena power to get to the bottom of it.

    i'm not sure why the quality of their moderation has any bearing. a web forum is going to be reluctant to take on a top-tier political operative regardless of quality of moderation. just like the MSM is going to back them up regardless of guilt or innocence.

    again, look how long the catholic church got a free pass. look how long the press in the UK turned a blind eye to the human trafficking activities going on there. reddit does not trump institutions of that size and power.

    I don't think Alefantis has kids.

    Well since neither of us are part of their staff we can't really know their reasons. However, being part of that site for years I can tell you they shut down stuff all the time. Go and try posting something racist there and see how long it lasts.

    fair enough. i've never been to reddit so i'll take your word for it.

    still say the fact they banned THIS particular topic has no bearing whatsoever on its truth or falsity. especially if they ban stuff all the time.

    You should visit it.

    I remember registering for democraticunderground and getting a lifetime ban after three posts because I was conservative. All sites are different. I like it here because PH is the most open site I have found. As long as you are respectful and follow the basic rules you can do a lot more than other places.

    And, in your case, post idiotic information.
