Reddit censors things?!

The company that owns Reddit doesn’t, but the mods who run (ran?) the technology community removed posts silently that included certain words.

This is done most likely by a “bot” someone made to check for new posts and delete all posts that had any words in a blacklist.

Ultimately this won’t stop me from visiting the site but since people think censorship is a major thing still, why not offer an opinion?
