Reddit has begun a new wave of community bans, and it's homed in on violent subreddits. This notably encompasses groups that include Nazis and Nazi sympathizers.
The bans follow updates to rules regarding violent content. Reddit administrator landoflobsters wrote Wednesday: "Going forward, we will take action against any content that encourages, glorifies, incites, or calls for violence or physical harm against an individual or a group of people."
That administrator said the previous policy was "too vague," allowing violent groups and content to permeate the site.
Back in February, Reddit banned two prominent alt-right subreddits for posting personal information. But other reported neo-Nazi groups, like the recently banned /r/EuropeanNationalism, were still allowed on the site.
This latest decision to ban violent far-right groups comes months after other websites and tech companies did the same. Surrounding the violent Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, white supremacist groups and so-called "alt-right" figures were booted from GoDaddy, Airbnb, Patreon and GoFundMe.
