Hope this is okay to post here, it's not "meanwhile" as it happened a while ago, but I don't see much talk about it as these subs were smaller than the other subs that have been banned.
Reddit banned /r/proED & /r/proEDmemes as well as a few random anorexia and bulimia subs.
Now, from the outside, "Pro ED" looks like a promotion of eating disorders, but this sub was NOT. They didn't allow anyone to give any "tips" or ask for any advice on how to be thin/anorexic/purge, etc.
It was a place much like SanctionedSuicide, where people could talk about their feelings & frustrations with eating disorders without the weird and fake hugboxing that the internet does sometimes. A place where people with mental illnesses could talk and relate.
It was a refuge for a lot of people. And they banned with no warning.
Reddit is so hypocritical in this banning, because 90% of the memes on /r/proEDmemes are the same memes on subreddits like /r/1200isplenty (a 1200 calorie diet subreddit which was not banned).
The only eating disorder sub that they didn't ban is /r/BingeEatingDisorder...
