New Reddit Policy Aims to Delete Harassing Content

Reddit announced that it was updating its site-wide policies to explicitly prohibit harassment against users, a move that the company said would promote free expression on Reddit without fear of retribution from a vocal minority. “We’ve heard a lot of complaints and found that even our existing users were unhappy with the content on the site,” said Ellen Pao, chief executive of Reddit, noting a study the company conducted this year with more than 15,000 users, or so-called redditors.
