I'd like to get a discussion going about free speech and how reddit perceives it. Honestly, a lot of what's been happening is eerily similar to the HD-DVD fiasco of Digg's time, where a question of legality and best business practices for Digg had their user base turn against them.
Here's the last drama in the "free speech!" area on Reddit, where removing a post in /r/wtf which could have been percieved as a witch hunt and it was removed has caused an outrage and the drama has shifted over to /r/askreddit, where the 'offending material' has been copy/pasted over and over again.
I feel that when protected by anonymity and protected from consequence, the average user will defend their right to free speech and non-censorship despite it ultimately harming the very same platform that is giving them that ability ... a quintessential "violinist on the Titanic" kind of situation. But I feel there's something more there.
