What is wrong with reddit?

Hate-speech on reddit.com is at an all time high, with endless subs dedicated to promoting racism, misogyny and homophobia. An endless array of popular subreddits are filled with white supremacists 'joking' about murdering anyone who isn't a heterosexual white male. These 'alt right' trolls especially take pleasure in doxing activists.

The admins of reddit are so morally bankrupt that they saw fit to send a gold-plated award to an infamous pedophile and neo-nazi after he created pedo-hive r/jailbait.

Then reddit.com's warrant canary was killed, exposing our personal data to snooping government agencies.

In the months leading up to the US election, The_Donald completely took over the site as the real estate mogul's primary campaign platform and likely propelled Donald Trump into the white house.

While this was happening, reddit.com admins began shutting down leftist subs and banning leftist users and mods for no clear reason.

The admins then started banning entire leftist domains from being linked to their site.

Reddit followed this up by announcing they were no longer open source, and effectively screwed all the volunteers that had donated their time and labor in improving the Reddit corporation's codebase.

Reddit is a privacy nightmare, a hotbed for fascist organizing and a clear and present danger to anyone that would oppose the status quo. Stop using it.
