    No, it's not still under investigation.

    Citing its policy against posting the personal information of others, Reddit has banned the “Pizzagate” conspiracy board. Pizzagate, a persistent and popular conspiracy theory that combines the Clinton diaspora with accusations of a secret pedophile ring, has been a steady force in the enclaves of the pro-Donald Trump internet.

    It has also led to some very real harassment of the people caught up in the theory, including the owner of the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria, James Alefantis. Alefantis has received hundreds of death threats over the past couple of weeks, he told the New York Times, after Pizzagate enthusiasts decided that his restaurant was the secret headquarters of a child sex-trafficking ring run by Hillary Clinton and her inner circle.

    None of the wildly accusatory claims are true. Alefantis told the Times that he asked Twitter, Reddit, Facebook, YouTube and the FBI to help him stop the spread of the conspiracy theory, which uses photos of his own kids as “evidence.”

    How nice that Trump supporters

    a) buy into so much false news and conspiracy theories

    and

    b) send death threats to people. They seem to do this on a regular basis.


    And some here wonder why some are so afraid when it comes to Trump being in the WH.

    and yet we have to hear the most insane shit from the ex-progressives in the corporate democratic movement about russia and putin whacking everyone in sight, influencing our election in various impossible ways, and basically running the entire world in secret.

    alefantis is getting trolled online. it happens to people. the post's reflexive defense of them is odd.

    there are some very strange aspects to this pizzagate story, and neither the post, the NY Times, or snopes addresses them at all. they simply poo-poo the whole thing as ridiculous on its face (there's more evidence for it than there is for this silly Putin stuff) but it's clear the mainstream press will never address them. valid stories about corruption in government will always get ignored in this kind of environment, because the mainstream press and the government are in blatant cahoots.

    it's all a matter of how willing you are to believe anything the establishment press says, and distrust anything your political opposition says. the ex-progressives' reflexive willingness to believe outlets like the post and the times is plain. it's why the NY Times was able to peddle the iraq war to us.

    Hmmmm, well if Reddit banned it then it must be a hoax.

    I stand corrected.

    At least I can admit it.

    Reddit isn't known for censorship.

    Reddit didn't ban pizzagate because it's a hoax. they banned it because they don't like the kind of attention it's getting.

    if it IS fake, it'll lead to lawsuits. if it's true, it'll be aggressively covered up by the government and their mainstream press. it's a lose-lose for reddit.

    Its almost impossible to sue a forum for what is discussed. If it were Stormfront would have been out of business a long time ago.
