Why hasn't /r/The_Donald been banned?

Since I received no response to my initial post despite numerous cited examples, I've collected even more comments in /r/The_Donald that violate reddit's policy regarding violent content. These examples are all less than 30 days old and many occurred after the clarification was posted. I'm also including the original text and score before attempts at a cover up are made.

Examples

I included 45 in honor of the soon-to-be-EX-president.

2 "Wow, you fucking racist whites are so crazy to think any racism against whites exists. Now go fuck off to the back of the room so the brown people can move to the front!" It's sad that America exported this black lives matter racist bullshit to other countries. We should have crushed it violently when it started and put all the leaders in jail for life via RICO charges.

11 I want all these degenerates to be slowly tortured and executed in the most inhumane way possible. Get them to turn on one another by offering them slightly better deaths, then kill them all. These sick fucks need to be treated like sick fucks.

At that time, the U.S. had seized territory as far south as Mexico City. The wall would be a whole lot CHEAPER if we ran it straight from Petatlan to Tecolutia, and reclaim that previously conquered territory. Do you like the sound of THAT, Mexico?

[–]spez[S,A] 54 points55 points  (4 children)

Many of these links are probably in violation of our policy, but most are unreported, which is what alerts the mods and our team, especially when there are few votes. We'll consider them reported now.

Generally the mods of the_donald have been cooperative when we approach them with systematic abuses. Typically we ban entire communities only when the mods are uncooperative or the entire premise of the community is in violation of our policies. In the past we have removed mods of the_donald that refuse to work with us.

Finally, the_donald is a small part of a large problem we face in this country—that a large part of the population feels unheard, and the last thing we're going to do is take their voice away.

[–]eodtech1 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Where does reddit draw the line between free speech and hate speech?

[–]Lysergic1138 97 points98 points  (8 children)

/u/spez this right here.

TD is literally the elephant in the room. That's great that you guys are making changes and we're all for that. But not shutting down TD is like supporting the Allies during WWII and then doing fuck all about the Nazis.

[–]crypticthree 25 points26 points  (3 children)

So the United States prior to Pearl Harbor?

[–]cespes 1 point2 points  (0 children)

FYI the US provided hefty economic aid to the Allies prior to their military involvement in WW2.

[–]Pyronic_Chaos -1 points0 points  (0 children)

What will be Reddit's Pearl Harbor? Another alt-right'r running into crowds of protesters? Or opening fire?

[–]MISREADS_YOUR_POSTS 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Dembara 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Don't make comparisons to Nazis and that. Make the moral argument, which is strong enough on its own.

[–]dschneider 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Are comparisons to Nazis still irrelevant when some of them literally fly the Nazi flag?

[–]Dembara 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I have not seen the /r/The_Donald people fly the Nazi flags. The actual Nazi groups I have seen view TD as a bunch of "retards" for supported "based blacks" (i.e. black people who agree with them) and opposing Nazis. It really is interesting to look at the group dynamics.

(I should note I abhor the Nazis and modern Nazi groups, if my wording seemed to indicate otherwise. I come from a family of Holocaust survivors.)

[–]PopeADopePope 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Some Americans fly the nazi flag

Doesn't mean it makes any sense to call all americans nazis

[–]squidward_tentacles0 258 points259 points  (16 children)

And r/incels needs something done about it, they claim to be a support group but encourage suicide

[–]hexthanatonaut 110 points111 points  (0 children)

They encourage suicide as well as raping and committing other acts of violence against women.

[–]brickmack 10 points11 points  (0 children)

If they were only encouraging suicide, that'd be a self-solving problem. /r/incels also advocates rape and literal slavery

[–]alts_for_all 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm honestly surprised they didn't ban /r/incels during the last batch of banning and would love to know the thought process behind leaving it. The problem with banning TD is that it's the sub for the sitting president and it would be a huge shitshow. No one's going to care about /r/incels except the people who post there and it reflects really poorly on the site.

[–]EMQG 0 points1 point  (0 children)

u/spez let's hear something about this one, too. This subreddit regularly advocates for rape, murder, and suicide. What're you going to do about it?

[–]Quorbach 109 points110 points  (7 children)

I am (and I suppose many other redditors are) eagerly looking forward to reading an official explanation to this one. Thank you for this well backed-up post. This needs to be massively upvoted.

[–]b_port 57 points58 points  (5 children)

Either he's working on a long, well explained response, or it will be completely ignored.

[–]Ledrias 33 points34 points  (1 child)

Likely the latter.

[–]belisaurius 7 points8 points  (0 children)

This, absolutely. There is no world where Spez says anything about T_D after the last time he did something related to them. Whatever happens to T_D will be an all-hands operation.

[–]idonotwanttoregister 9 points10 points  (0 children)

It's going to be ignored I think.

[–]TorePun 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just ask yourself: does it affect reddit's relationship with advertisers or the company's bottom line?

The code of conduct/quarterly promises mean shit until bad press or lost revenue happens

[–]EverWatcher 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Would he dare to post a three-sentence bullshit "response" to this? I wonder...

[–]theporgawakens 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I think we’ll be eagerly waiting for a long time...

[–]MelancholicGod 36 points37 points  (4 children)

Yeah the mod guy will probably leave this one unanswered. A shame really, I'd at least like to know the reason behind not banning it.

[–]hurrrrrmione 10 points11 points  (1 child)

u/spez isn't a mod, he's an admin and Reddit CEO, as the title states. He's one of the two founders of Reddit, the other being u/kn0thing

[–]Alt21943211 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wait, after the fiasco of unmarked edits they still let him anywhere close to an admin account ?

[–]belisaurius 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Spez isn't just some mod guy, by the way. He's the CEO.

[–]BasedRumble 2 points3 points  (0 children)

the same reason they dont shut down other subreddits. If T_D as a whole was dedicated to "inciting violence" then I can see why it would be shut down, but threads that go against the guidelines never make it to the top. If we go by your logic of shutting down subreddits, then there would be no subs on reddit.

[–]Portarossa 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I'm glad someone took the time to make this list, but Jesus Christ, that's a whole heap of unpleasantness to muddle through in one sitting.

[–]chefr89 36 points37 points  (7 children)

Because cowardice? They brigade the hell out of other subs and websites all the time. Heaven forbid we send these lunatics to the alt-right cousin of reddit, Voat

[–]PM_ME_YOUR_WISHES_ 19 points20 points  (0 children)

they tried to get on voat but apparently they wered ridiculed and boeed out. voat is anti censorship and safe spaces and what bigger censoring safe space than the glorious r/the_donald ? :D

[–]snowsnothing 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Voat actually didn't accept the donald users when the sub went private for a little bit. Voat is a total cesspool of pedophiles and nazis.

Go on voat right now, its fucking terrible all the time.

[–]juksayer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I like the conspiracy sub over there, but as always, everything in it needs to be taken with more than one grain of salt.

[–]LlLlTH 1 point2 points  (1 child)

They already encourage each other to go there.

[–]chefr89 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

That's because they were only saying that while they're community did that whole 'private lock' thing or whatever it was, threatening (idly) to leave reddit, when in actuality, they would have been furious if reddit ever booted their sub.

[–]Itaketothesky 32 points33 points  (4 children)

This will go unanswered

[–]GeeN9 46 points47 points  (0 children)

As if there's any doubt. He'd rather answer a joke question about squid. The reason TD is still around better be because of open investigations into members, and not fear.

[–]OneBigTesticle 21 points22 points  (4 children)

Or answered with some bullshit response about being fair and impartial or something.

[–]mac_question 14 points15 points  (2 children)

He's writing about the "anti-evil team," without giving any details at all. So, yeah.

[–]freedom_kochus 27 points28 points  (1 child)

"Evil" apparently includes my bot that until yesterday was giving Americans information about upcoming elections. Got suspended. :(

Every time one of the bot's comments got too popular, legions of Donald users would show up, swear at me, and get me banned.

[–]mac_question 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Not surprising at all. The platform has grown to a size where dicking over hobbiest hacker types is fine, but shutting down entire communities of nutjobs would measurably lower their user count... I guess. Idk. I can't make sense of it to be honest.

I remember, not that long ago, when Freedom of the Internet and Freedom of Speech etc etc etc were such goddamn untouchable principles. And then they just let the bots and foreign trolls take over, or at least don't seem to care about it.

[–]theporgawakens 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Reddit’s new slogan: Fair and Balanced!TM

[–]warox13 0 points1 point  (3 children)

The question absolutely deserves an answer, and a sincere one. That subreddit is one of the most hateful places on the internet at large.

[–]daveed2001 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Let me guess you’ve never seen /r/incels before huh?

[–]SirT6 21 points22 points  (7 children)

I'm not a big fan of T_D (I'm banned from the community and usually have them filtered), but this is weak evidence for banning the subreddit. It is a handful of poorly upvoted comments.

I don't know that they should be banned. But if they are, it should be because the moderation team and the community are SYSTEMATICALLY violating reddit rules. If you have evidence that T_D mods are taking steps to enable or even promote violent content, then ban away. But this doesn't meet a reasonable threshold for proof in my mind.

[–]DivestTrump 8 points9 points  (6 children)

Data Gathering Process

At first, I simply used google to collect examples. For example, searching for "kill them all" site:reddit.com/r/The_Donald has 621 results. My original post was criticized by The_Donald regulars for including results several months old even though most were recent. To get the latest results, I wrote a script to search The_Donald comments for specific words and phrases that could and should be included in the subreddit's AutoModerator configuration. Then, I manually skimmed through the results and put together a table. I'm sure there are countless examples I missed.

To minimize criticism of the data I collected, I excluded many references to specific public figures, vague threats to corporations, as well as threats against criminals and terrorists. I also ommited "<person or people> should kill themsel(f|ves)" statements. Lastly, I excluded comments with a score lower than 1.

Examples of calls for violence that I DID NOT INCLUDE based on benefit of the doubt, target of threat, context, etc:

I have no interest in defending terrorists or pedophiles (although violence is violence), but it is worth noting this example of a user from The_Donald misinterpreting (maybe as intended?) what these terms mean, which resulted in patricide. It really is difficult to determine who these people want killed in many cases due to the alarmingly high amount of vilification of Muslims, various races and groups.

[–]SirT6 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thanks for the methodology. I think if I were an admin, the types of questions I would be asking are:

  • what is the mod teammate doing to prevent rule breaking?

  • what are automod settings for the subreddit?

  • how responsive are they to feedback from admins?

I think you are more likely to get T_D on charges related to vote manipulation.

[–]Tooooon 9 points10 points  (4 children)

Do the same for r/anarchy or r/socialism, but change some of the key words for "trump supporters", or "trump" and "nazi" being in the same comment.

I'll wait here.

[–]TorePun 6 points7 points  (0 children)

[–]AlmostEasy43 4 points5 points  (0 children)

/r/politics which supposedly is against personal attacks but is totally full of them?

[–]Bumpynuckz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Or /r/politics for that matter.

[–]PCD07 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Because dealing with one central subreddit is easier than trying to continually quash the hundreds of replacement subreddit that will pop up as soon as TD is banned.

As much as everyone wants it, it just makes no sense to ban TD right now. Imagine having to filter a new subreddit every single time you check reddit because of some "UP VOTE TO SHOW SHILLARY WE CAN'T BE SILENCED!! 1!1!" bullshit because they keep making new subs.

[–]dsclouse117 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Could make a longer list for /r/anarchism and some of the tankier communism subs as well (mostly because they've been around longer).

We should ban all those while we're at it too.

[–]That_One_Kiid 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Agree 100%. I seriously worry someone unstable is going to be enabled into committing violence based on the rhetoric on those subs

[–]love_the_heat -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

That subreddit has had more chances and "education" than any other sub yet continue to operate and grow. It affects too many other communities negatively with braiding and violent titles. Please close the subreddit.

[–]PM-ME-GOOD-DOGGOS 24 points25 points  (9 children)

The_Donald is trash, but most of these are 1 upvote comments. Just because you disagree with them doesn't mean they don't have the right to express themselves. /r/latestagecapitalism is almost as bad, yet not many seem to complain.

[–]DetectiveBeluga 2 points3 points  (2 children)

You're right about the 1 upvote thing, but

Just because you disagree with them doesn't mean they don't have the right to express themselves.

It does when what's being disagreed with is wanting to kill people and expressing themselves means spreading their violence.

[–]PM-ME-GOOD-DOGGOS 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Do you think the consensus on /r/thedonald is kill all muslims, SJW's, cucks, etc? One word. Hyperbole.

/r/latestagecapitalism moderators literally have banned people with actual experiences from capitalist countries with the message 'your family deserved everything they got for working against.. yadayada.''

[–]DetectiveBeluga 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Do you think the consensus on /r/thedonald is kill all muslims, SJW's, cucks, etc?

No, I don't. I never said that. I do think the original comment is an exaggeration and the examples given are definitely not representative of the whole. I'm just arguing that those who are being violent do not deserve "free speech" treatment.

[–]That_One_Kiid 1 point2 points  (2 children)

/r/latestagecapitalism is almost as bad, yet not many seem to complain.

Advocating violence and extremism is okay, as long as it isn't race related /s

You could learn to grow up. It’s ok if someone has different views than you. And don’t start with the vote manipulation bs. Every one of your posts gets upvoted because of vote manipulation.

[–]Cal1gula 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is going to be the stop post super quickly, and it will also be completely ignored.

[–]ThirdEncounter -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

I'm more surprised about the fact that people still pay attention to whatever T_D posts. They're just a bunch of trolls.

[–]The_Chrononaut 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Ok so I've spent a lot of time browsing TD since the violent sub ban or whatever that was.

There are some fucked up comments, but there aren't any threads that promote violence. And a lot of the time the really fucked up shit gets downvoted.

Also the soon to be ex-president. I mean I hate the guy but come on, if you think he's going to get impeached you're gonna have a very rough 4-8 years. I have a weighted blanket and hot cocoa if you need it.

[–]BasedRumble 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Theres comments on there from time to time that I dont agree with but no threads that "incite violence" ever make it that far, I havent even seen any.

[–]Hanz_Q 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Shutting down td would impede active FBI investigations. Also fuck spez.

[–]23423423423451 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I imagine it would be like squashing a cockroach nest and having the roaches set up everywhere else in your house. The pushback and toxicity that would spread across Reddit would be more negative than letting them quietly exist in their own corner.

[–]gixxerbro 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They'd probably just head over to /r/incels

[–]Dembara 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Some of those are obvious jokes... But I do not think we should treat every community based on what comments are on it, rather the general atmosphere. Of course, those posting incitements to violence should be removed, but unless the group as a whole supports it, I do not see why they should be judged by it.

[–]russiangerman 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's a shitty answer but I feel like it's like the darknet. It can be shut down, and should be shut down, but it won't stop the people. They can be monitored here, if we shut it down they get more careful but do the same thing elsewhere. TD isn't the problem nearly as much as it's members are

[–]Spysix 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Did you seriously take a bunch of comments out of context and assume they're promoting violence?

By that logic, r/politics should be banned too.

Since we're talking about TD, when is reddit going to ban subs advocating violence against anyone they consider non-left?

You can't tell me with a straight face /r/Fuckthealtright and /r/esist don't encourage acts of violence to their political opposition.

[–]dragonflyingsaucer 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Show examples of any of that.

[–]robjob08 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You are talking about outlier comments. I'd say by and large the subreddit does not directly advocate or encourage violence. I think it's important to allow an open dialogue and free speech. One thing I staunchly disagree with is their absolute refusal to accept dissenting views.

[–]gixxerbro 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not really an open dialog when anyone who calls out misinformation gets banned

[–]Daddy_Senpai 5 points6 points  (0 children)

all posts with less than 20 points

Clearly a systemic problem

[–]PopeADopePope 4 points5 points  (0 children)

There's only 3 comments there above 20 points.... On one of the most active subreddits ever

And they're only 22, 25 and 60

I mean I could find violent, hateful comments in every subreddit if I looked hard enough

Seems like you're trying to fit the data to a narrative, instead of letting the actual data control it

[–]BClark09 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If you get a non-bullshit answer on this, I’ll be shocked.

[–]ReturnOfTheDM -1 points0 points  (0 children)

If you want to use a bunch of outlier, relatively low-score comments as justification to ban an entire subreddit, Reddit would have to start banning A LOT of subs just for the sake of fairness.

There are plenty of subs with outlier comments calling for violence against trump supporters, bash the fash, etc.

T_D can be bad but they are far from the only subreddit (on the left and the right) that have commenters calling for violence, doxxing, harassment, etc of political opponents.

[–]SpankyMonkey1999 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Not only that, but posters from there are allowed to say any hateful, racist, vile thing at r/politics and anyone who responds to them gets insta-banned.

[–]Engage-Eight 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Spez, you obviously don't think this is bad enough to get them banned. So what do they have to do to get banned? If the garbage they post isn't bad enough, what line can they cross that they haven't already?
