Alt-Right has taken over r/pusspass and few other subreddits. Reddit has also made clear that inciting hatred, dreaming about genocides, encouraging others to start a genocide, doxxing people and rape threats are ok on Reddit. But saying that you want to punch fascists can get you banned from the site.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Doxxing is what got /r/altright banned. Mod-sanctioned, unambiguously, since it was in a pinned thread.

Still doesn't explain why hate speech is apparently tolerable but doxxing isn't...

Speech is speech and can be shouted down upon.  Doxxing is where you go into hilarious illegal territory and can get someone killed.

Didn't some racist subreddit get banned a couple years back? IIRC, there was this big controversy about it.

Yup.  You are remembering r/coontown getting, if nothing else, quarantined.

Yeah that's pretty much it. Hate speech is words. Doxxing is a clear and concrete threat against a specific person.

Another setback for Nazis. They lost r/pussypass.

https://www.reddit.com/r/AgainstHateSubreddits/comments/6811gg/looks_like_the_top_mod_of_rpussypass_came_back/


Pussypass was originally "merely" filled with misogyny and news stories about women getting light sentences for crimes compared to guys who commit similar crimes. At some point it was taken over by nazis and was one of the more infamous neo-nazi/alt-right reddits. Until just a while ago when apparently the original owner came back to Reddit, saw all the nazis and kicked them out.

We shall wait and see if regular he-man-woman-haters now return to the subreddit.

Nazis on the other hand are complaining and asking around if anyone with a subreddit with lots of subscribers would let them take over. (Why can't they make a subreddit for themselves? Because there aren't that many of them so they prefer to take over existing groups so that their numbers seem highger...)

EDIT: Alternative theory is that this was done by Reddit employees and they are shutting the subreddit due to the massive amount of complaints from the death threats and racism and hate speech it had/caused.
