The latest trend in popular Reddit censorship is automatically spam filter generated. Who ever writes the Spam Filter code must have 1984ish roots. See the latest choice for censorship:
A Chicago man, following the Republican playbook, is threatening to destroy rare papers unless Harvard offers a better price. Truly a Tea Party Schooled knave! Speaking of knaves, the only moderator removal/censorship is also a Shutdown related story from finance.yahoo.com submitted to the News subreddit. Maybe the Reddit censor/moderator didn’t like the markets reaction.
But clearly the trend of REddit censorship is away from human moderators/censors and over to automated spam filters. Look above or go to the site yourself and decide which are better censors.
