The community, one of the most active sources of grassroots support for the President on the Internet, has been placed in “quarantine” mode by the administrators of Reddit. Visitors to the page are met with a screen asking them if they wish to view the page.
Content from quarantined communities will not appear for members who are not subscribed to the board, known as a subreddit.
Reddit describes its reasons for quarantining communities as follows:
There will sometimes be communities that, while not prohibited, average Redditors may nevertheless find highly offensive or upsetting. In other cases, communities may be dedicated to promoting hoaxes (yes we used that word) that warrant additional scrutiny, as there are some things that are either verifiable or falsifiable and not seriously up for debate (e.g., the Holocaust did happen and the number of people who died is well documented). In these circumstances, Reddit Administrators may apply a quarantine.
In the message Reddit sent to The_Donald page they say the page has been quarantined for random users posting about violence, but also acknowledge that the page admins do delete those posts. They were quarantined anyway pic.twitter.com/pU3fllL7u8— Jack Posobiec 🇺🇸 (@JackPosobiec) June 26, 2019
