>Reddit wants free speech – as long as it agrees with the speaker
>Reddit used free speech to defend its forums of pictures of young girls but blocked Gawker for 'outing' the man behind them
>Reddit's new stance appears to be that free speech is great – as long it's speech it agrees with. Which is a position the RIAA (which seeks to close sites linking to pirate content), or even China's Communist party could happily agree with.
>At minimum, the farrago reveals that a site with huge influence in selecting which stories and content will take off online is less democratic by far than it appears – and is instead subject to huge control by an apparently capricious group of mods. At worst, the row will undermine the causes their tens, at times hundreds, of millions of users stand for. Next time Reddit issues the battle cry against a new law affecting the internet, who will saddle up?
