Bans hacked photos subreddit

7 Sep, 2014

Reddit administrators ban the page where many hacked photos of naked celebrities landed when they flooded the internet almost a week earlier. Reddit managers were continuously trying to keep the stolen pictures off of that page, but users kept re-posting them.

You choose what to post. You choose what to read. You choose what kind of subreddit to create and what kind of rules you will enforce. But it became obvious that we were either going to have to watch these subreddits constantly, or shut them down. We chose the latter.
