Reddit's new employee, Ashton "Aimee" Challenor, apparently has extreme protection on the site. Here is his Wikipedia page https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aimee_Challenor
A mod in r/ukpolitics linked a Spectator article that mentioned Challenor's name, in passing, and with no mention of reddit at all. The article was about the Green Party's determination to erase women's rights (https://www.spectator.co.uk/article/the-green-party-s-growing-contempt-for-women-s-rights)
The mod was banned, and the sub went private to do damage control. The sub is back this morning, with a helpful sticky: https://www.reddit.com/r/ukpolitics/comments/mbbm2c/welcome_back_subreddit_statement/
Of note are these new rules:
Please do not name this individual, at all. Doing so may result in your account being banned by the admins.
Please do not ask further questions about this, as doing so may result in your account being banned by the admins.
Please do not discuss this incident on Reddit publicly or privately (e.g. on private subreddits and/or in private messages, chat etc.), as doing so may result in your account being banned by the admins.
So you're not allowed to talk about a public figure anymore or you risk your account being banned. Seems pretty extreme, to go to such lengths for a pedophile apologist.
