REDDIT'S QANON BAN POINTS TO HOW IT'S TRACKING TOXIC COMMUNITIES

• https://www.theverge.com, by Bijan Stephen

Reddit has finally banned r/greatawakening, the main QAnon subreddit, and then it banned /r/The_GreatAwakening, the backup subreddit where users fled. QAnon, the web of conspiracy theories — which involve Donald Trump, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and politicians and government officials stretching all the way back to Kennedy era — originated on 4chan through Q, an anonymous person purporting to have a high-level security clearance. It then quickly spread to Reddit, Facebook, and eventually offline.

A spokesperson confirmed to The Verge that r/greatawakening was banned for violating Reddit's policy against "inciting violence, harassment, and the dissemination of personal information," while r/The_GreatAwakening was taken down for inciting harassment.
