There have been even more threads in r/rant, r/changemyview, r/outoftheloop and random comments in different subs with upvotes in the hundreds sometimes even thousands.

Yuck. That's why I left Reddit, in addition to the bans & downvotes. Too much of a hivemind there - if you disagreed with a 'popular' sentiment, you were instantly downvoted into oblivion.

This is why if/when saidit gets big, the hivemind won't be able to censor anyone, because we have no downvote. It will only be able to promote things. So it'll be a friendly hivemind that will support a wide variety of interests, rather than a punishing hivemind that has an ever-narrowing ideology. That's the plan anyway.

I couldn't expect anything worse from Reddit but guess i'm proven wrong again. I don't get how you can blame a person for something he didn't have control of neither knowledge that something like this will happen to begin with. Horrible site...

It is like this on Facebook too. I feel so bad for Pewds, but I know his community has been supporting him.

it does seem unfair cuz he never said anything anti muslim or pro nazi but that shooter happened to mention him.

I suspect whoever is pushing the censorship is also astroturfing reddit.

Undoubtedly. Reddit has a clear liberal bias, mods/admins don't even try to hide it anymore.

I mean, I guess I feel bad that the poor chap's been dragged into this, but that outrage will run out of steam in about a week, and probably become good publicity as well. After all, he's been handling the coverage quite well.

Eventually, everyone who's spouted those opinions will have to take a good, long look at themselves and realize what absolute morons they are. And I'll enjoy bringing it up to them again and again, in every conversation.

In the meantime, I am having a good laugh at their expense.
