Reddit CEO: Some Communities Shouldn’t Be Here at All

Last time someone said something like this, everyone on Reddit grabbed their pitch forks and torches. It will be interesting to see how this turns out.

The overwhelming majority of content on reddit comes from wonderful, creative, funny, smart, and silly communities. That is what makes reddit great. There is also a dark side, communities whose purpose is reprehensible, and we don’t have any obligation to support them. And we also believe that some communities currently on the platform should not be here at all.
