[WOT] Came across this "Truth" about Reddit...

Was browsing through pastebin and saw this imbal paste:

Sauce: Redditbomb - Pastebin.com


reddit [http://www.reddit.com/] is a social website that allows its users to share links to content on the internet and post comments about the links. This enables not only the sharing of content (photographs, videos, websites, and so on) but also the discussion of said content.

reddit is massively popular [http://blog.reddit.com/2012/01/2-billion-beyond.html], especially with young people [http://en.reddit.com/r/misc/comment..._survey_in_pie/].

reddit is split into subcommunities known as "subreddits", meaning that while reddit exists as a website, it consists as the sum of its subcommunities that people can subscribe to and participate in by means of sharing and commenting as aforementioned.

Unfortunately, the reddit community as a whole also harbors pedophiles and distributors of child pornography, including a man who goes by the name Tessorro [http://www.reddit.com/user/tessorro] and runs a subreddit called "preteen_girls"[http://www.reddit.com/r/preteen_gir...ase_can/c3pxuv8]

The main purveyor of child porn on reddit is Violentacrez, who was the former leader of the "jailbait" subreddit, before Anderson Cooper's report [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VuMd...feature=related] got it shut down: [http://www.reddit.com/user/violentacrez]

A list of Jailbait (underage porn) forums which have sprung up to replace it: (all below links are not safe for work)

/r/jailbait is shut down now, but the traffic statistics [http://i.imgur.com/jvNpg.png] posted by Violentacrez [http://www.reddit.com/r/TheoryOfRed..._for_rjailbait/] from its heydays are interesting. The dip in mid August is when admins temporarily closed the subreddit, and the spike on September 30th is when Anderson Cooper talked about it. The numbers after the temporary shut down are abnormally low, as would be expected. But prior to that, they were getting about 30,000 unique visitors each day.

The owners of reddit know there is active trading of child porn on their forums, and refuse to do anything about it. Further, Reddit's cofounder simply dismisses the issue and blames the exploited children whose pictures are being traded: [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXZYvrue1BE]

The inaction of reddit's administrators has been a frequent topic, part of that being Violentacrez's shockingly close relationship with them.
Violentacrez's Twitter account [https://twitter.com/!/violentacrez] seems like a good example of this.
Krispykrackers [http://twitter.com/krispykrackers] (head of advertising and the community helpline at reddit)
Hueypriest https://twitter.com/!/hueypriest] (reddit's general manager) and
Chromakode [https://twitter.com/!/chromakode] (developer) all follow violentacrez.
So does Jedberg [https://twitter.com/!/jedberg] (former administrator),
KeyserSosa [https://twitter.com/!/KeyserSosa] (former lead developer) and
MikeSchiraldi [https://twitter.com/!/MikeSchiraldiraldi] (another former developer type).

If you view their past tweets, you'll see that Violentacrez has regularly been in direct, public contact with them.

In 2008, r/jailbait received the most votes in reddit's "Best Community" contest [http://www.reddit.com/r/bestof/comm...comment_here_w/], with SuicideWatch taking a distant second, receiving about half as many votes.

Another interesting fact is that Violentacrez has the third highest amount of karma [http://www.karmawhores.net/violentacrez] on all of reddit for submitted links. Reddit can't get enough of the guy.

Are you sick to your stomach yet? The list of child pornography subreddits continues: (all links below are not safe for work)

reddit.com: over 18?

Other awful reddit things:

A pedophile's confession: IAMA man who, at 24, met a 14 yr old girl and lost his virginity with her. : IAmA

A section called "Raping women": reddit.com: over 18?
"Beating women": reddit.com: over 18?
"lolicon" (cartoon drawings of naked kids): http://www.reddit.com/r/lolicon
"Pics of Dead Kids": reddit.com: over 18?
