"This subreddit was banned due to a violation of Reddit’s content policy against creating or repurposing a sub to reconstitute or serve the same objective as a previously banned or quarantined subreddit."

Which makes no sense, because the previous subreddit was not banned or quarantined.

I love how reddit is pro-"free-speech" when it "furthers the conversation" in regards to misogyny, racism, fascism and other such bullshit but when "furthering the conversation" is calling out the baddies, all of a sudden, free speech doesn't apply. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not a "free speech for everyone" person like they claim to be, I just like calling out what hypocritical asses they are because it makes me feel superior.

no idea, I guess some admin just really likes Dengists

so apparently if a new sub quickly fills up with users that are flagged as suspicious (like anarchists), it gets auto-banned. Reddit must be tagging all the leftists on their site so they can monitor their activity.

The most plausible theory I've seen so far is that the system is specifically looking for subs made up primarily of former subscribers of a banned sub. So if the majority of genzanarchist subscribers were also chapotraphouse subscribers, the system would notice this and assume that the new sub was intended as a replacement for chapotraphouse.
