Reddit ban on white nationalist, fat-shamming channels led to dramatic drop in hate speech

"As one of the largest and best known web forums, Reddit has become a sanctuary for people with all sorts of unsavory views, including white nationalists and the so-called "alt-right." But the platform where a section of users have proliferated anti-Semitic memes and creepshots has taken action to clean up some of the hate speech by closing down several subreddits or, and it is working, according to a new study.

The “front page of the Internet” is used by 172 million people every month and it has attracted criticism in the past for not working to remove certain inappropriate content. “We will not ban questionable subreddits,” the company’s then CEO Yishan Wong wrote in 2015. “You choose what to post. You choose what to read. You choose what kind of subreddit to create.”

The site performed a U-turn in the same year, banning some of the subreddits where some of the most toxic content was being shared, including r/coontown and r/fatpeoplehate. There was a belief among some that suspending the channels would only push the users posting hate speech elsewhere.

But, for those who stayed on Reddit, hate speech actually dropped significantly after the ban of the two channels, as much as 80 to 90 percent for some users, researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology, Emory University and University of Michigan found.

They took more than 100 million posts from the two Reddit channels, one white supremacist board, the other a fat-shaming board. They then measured the hate on those channels and then tracked where the users went and what they posted in different channels.

Many of the members of the banned communities left Reddit altogether, while others migrated to similar subreddits with other racist or offensive content. But hate speech did not rise significantly in the channels they moved to, with only slight bumps noticed.

“For the banned community users that remained active, the ban drastically reduced the amount of hate speech they used across Reddit by a large and significant amount,” the study said.

“Following the ban, Reddit saw a 90.63 percent decrease in the usage of manually filtered hate words by r/fatpeoplehate users, and a 81.08 percent decrease in the usage of manually filtered hate words by r/CoonTown users,” it found.

The researchers estimated that the suspension of those channels, at least in the short-term, was a success. Those who remained on the site were unable to set up duplicate channels, and the moderators who presided over the channels they moved to had the ability to control the hate speech and impose their rules.""

Ok I will give it a go:

First they came for the fascists, banning them from Reddit and I didn't stand up because I wasn't a fascist. Everybody got along fine, the world was improved and the Neo-nazi crybabies had to go cry at storm front their safe space.

Keep using those words for everyone you disagree with. There is no way you and your ilk are soooo overusing them that they are being rendered meaningless like the other buzzwords you guys love.



All this study proves is that users found a way to get around manually filtered words after they were censored.

BTW what "fascist" or "Neo-Nazi" subreddits were banned?
Could you list them?
The ones mentioned in your article are neither.

No silly, I love white people, I am a white person, I just don't fetishize my skin color.
I only hate stupid people that hate other people for really dumb reasons like their skin color or their religion(s) or the fact they are in poverty or refugees or immigrants.

I don't throw those words around lightly, I aim them at the people that spew neo nazi BS, racism, hate, genocide, torture, killings based on skin color or religion, or genetic history.
