XKCD subreddit drama.

XKCD subreddit drama.

Postby Mekire » Tue Jan 28, 2014 10:42 am

Not sure if anyone (or perhaps everyone) is aware of this, but the subreddit /r/xkcd is currently the locus of a lot of drama (and rightfully so).

The head moderator (who is in no way affiliated with XKCD) is a known neo-nazi, conspiracy theorist, holocaust denier (and also moderator of /r/holocaust). He recently banned the other mod of the subreddit for removing his propagandistic links on the sidebar, and replacing them with page appropriate CSS styling.

There was community outcry to have him removed and the other reinstated. Now the page appears to be a legit xkcd fan page, but all content that was critical has been deleted.

Here is the current state of the drama:

And a news article that was recently written:

Infuriating stuff, and predictably the actual Reddit admins have yet to lift a finger,
