    Link: Reddit CEO Says Anything Goes On Reddit - Last week on Reddit, a user was doxxed by Gawker for hate trolling. Reddit CEO says anything goes. Is hate trolling OK?

    I don`t think that the sexual victimization of underage girls is "free speech".

    I`m confused. The troll was confronted in real life, by people asking him questions and talking to him, correct? If so, how is that not free speech as well? What makes "doxxing" less free speech than attempting to hide behind an alias and sling hateful BS?

    he shouldn`t be posting kiddie porn, but anybody should be able to say what ever they want, no matter who is offended.

    To clarify - Reddit supports free speech so long as it allows them to justify their inaction against offensive posters (especially those who generate a lot of traffic for them), but stops supporting it when someone tries to make those offensive individuals answerable for their actions.

    Yup, sure sounds fair to me! >_<

    so "trolling" now includes child porn? Because that`s what Violentacrez was posting.

    zombunny seems like the one person who actually read what the whole issue is.

    This douche needs to learn the difference in free speech and child porn. Or maybe he should just get thrown in jail and raped a few times. That would be karma at work.

    It`s nice to see at least one major online company standing up for free speech

    sr3nity,

    "Free speech" is kiddy porn in this instance.
    You`re an idiot.

    I read the whole story, this guy seemed like your typical trolly piece of internet garbage. Then all Reddit mods get butthurt. He justified it as being pics of underage girls in bikinis and stuff and said it wasn`t illegal (technically isn`t) and if the girls didn`t want to be ogled then they shouldn`t post those pics on their facebook. Brilliant rationalization there.
