Reddit accused of censorship

Reddit removed several subreddits focused on hate speech and bullying this year.

"We're banning behavior, not ideas," former CEO Ellen Pao explained at the time.

But Reddit users accused the platform of censorship, and called for Pao to resign, which she did.

New CEO Steve Huffman defended his predecessor, but also said he would "reconsider" certain policies.
