So some kind of retarded shit is going on:
Two web properties I don't really like that much are about to get into a sissy slap fight with enough firepower to make you roll your eyes in embarrassment.http://betabeat.com/2012/10/reddit-readies-for-brewing-inter-website-war-bans-links-to-gawker-media/
This all stems from a sub reddit of creeps who take creepy photos of women and post them online (without their consent). This quite rightly alarmed some people and pissed other people off.
So a tumblr user started a tumblog called Predditors, which searched out the identities of the dudes posting creepy photos, and posted those details online.Gawker then posted a story about it
.Which caused one creepshots poster to get fired.
Shortly thereafter the Predditors blog was taken down by Tumblr, then put back up, then taken down again but then put back up with password protection. Tumblr is predictably going crazy
Gawker has since made moves to publish personal information on Reddit admins, which has caused Reddit to auto-ban links to Gawker Media sites.
The doomsday clock ticks closer to armageddon.
So anyway let's have a long and drama filled discussion about internet privacy and online social vigilante justice.
