Reddit is an addictive website for sharing and discussing media. It consists of user curated subforums. Users can vote on links and comments to decide what is shown near the top for about one day. Users receive worthless points (karma) according to the votes they receive. New users and users who get downvoted too much are rate-limited, resulting in them only allowing to post content once every 10 minutes.

A downside of the karma system, as noted by many, is that it tends to result in group think by effectively censoring views divergent from the mainstream via downvoting and often through the actions of politically motivated moderators. Redditors are conditioned to crave the upvotes, and can easiest achieve this by parroting the latest mindless memes or by virtue signaling.

In recent years, Reddit has been subject to rampant shilling by GPT AI driven bots, to the point where they are nearly indistinguishable from real users. This, in combination with rampant censorship, has made the site nearly unusable to discuss any topic considered inconvenient or politically incorrect. As a result (see below) most subreddits deemed not NPC friendly have been banned.

With the banning of r/Lonely_men the incel community on reddit has died out, moving to 4chan and r/Truevirgin was the most recent incel community to be banned as of May 2024.

Archives[edit | edit source]

Most banned subreddits have been archived on and (which can be searched on and URLs of deleted Reddit threads can sometimes be retrieved by replacing with, or On one can sometimes access /top/?sort=top&t=month or /top/?sort=top&t=all to see some of the top posts. Ever since Pushshift API was blocked by reddit in mid 2023,most of aforementioned alternatives have died out.

Incel-themed subreddits and bannings[edit | edit source]

Reddit hosted some of the largest incel forums, most of which have been memoryholed for "bullying" and "harassing" of women, presumably out of fear of bad advertiser relations and upon pressure of anti-incels.
