He's taking upskirt photos of young girls and spreading them around the internet without these girl's knowledge. He then posted them on a sub-form filled with rape fantasies and pornographic images.

And he wasn't the only one who got caught doing this. Another user was a teacher who was taking creepshots of his underaged students.

My only question is, if Reddit is run like a feudal kingdom, how the hell has the Game of Thrones subreddit not already taken over?

I don't think this guy should be in jail for child porn, but he should be charged with harassment and violation of privacy.

As is child porn. Deal with it.
Clothed teenage girls are not child porn.
It's not porn, but it's still a violation of privacy.

Of all the horrible communities that are not entirely focused on heinous subjects, like 4chan and The TVTropes Forums,
Wait, what's wrong with TVTropes?

Yeah. I can see the problem with Reddit and 4chan, but... TVTropes?

TVTropes is fine as long as you stay far away from the forums and the Troper Tales pages.
That's what I've been trying to point out. The TVTropes site is fine, even though thanks to the overwhelming awfulness of the forums and Troper Tales pages, that site has to be associated with them (and that's unfair).

Okay, the flame war got punted to Flame and Burn.

I would like to remind everyone that personal attacks outside of Flame and Burn are not allowed.  If you have a problem with someone, take it to Flame and Burn, with a link to the offending post if you have to.

As you were.

Nah, the rest of the site is shit, too, especially the example pages.

One of the comments pretty much summed up my opinion - partycloud22:

Partlycloudy22 1 of 75 replies @RushISRightOn 9 days ago

No one has stopped him from posting on Reddit. Hell, no one has stopped him from starting up a new anonymous account. His freedom is still fully intact. Freedom of speech does not guarantee anonymity, nor does it protect you from social or societal repercussions. He's as free as ever he was.

As for the argument Brusch did nothing illegal - well, neither did Adrian Chen. He just connected the dots that Brusch himself left behind.

Don't think yourself brave or clever or revolutionary or patriotic for saying offensive things for the point of being offensive. That's not the purpose of freedom of speech. Yes, you can cling to its coattails and ride along, but always remember: you're just some asshole tagging along. You're like a child doing something just because he knows he can get away with it. You're legalistic in the worst way.

Ew, the OP that person replied to is "RushISRightOn."

Rush Limbaugh is a bad person and you should feel bad for supporting him.

Also, I agree with the responder, that Freedom of Speech is a shield, not a sword. Don't you EVER think their are no consequences in the bullshit you are legally entitled to say. I mean look at TigerHunter, he's getting his ass whipped clean for defending child pornography.

(Yes, I'm aware that person won't read this post or even know who the hell TigerHunter is, but if he did, he would think Fundies Say The Darnest Thing is, in the sensationalist slag Rush would say, "Some Fascist Liberal foundation against Christianity.")

Ohhhh this guy.  Yeah, I think all I can really contribute to this guy amounts to, "Fuck him."

Fun note:  At one point, I was actually considering advertising my site via Reddit.

Now, I'm not so sure. =S

I'll put it this way, I read over it to see which articles have been deleted and added over time. It's fun watching the puritanical over reaction to random accusations.

I've found plenty of interesting reading only to check back a week later and find it deleted because it was most certainly questionable. Albiet some of them where interesting handling of questionable material. That last bit doesn't seem to matter a whole lot one someone levels a random claim.

I went to this part of Reddit called SpaceDicks.

My god, it was wondrous. And by wondrous I mean i couldn't tear myself away from the huge amounts of "wtf am i looking at"

I'm in the minority here, but Reddit is one of my favorite sites. I rarely encounter sexism, racism, etc. It's probably because there are only a few subreddits I really go to.

I've never heard of this guy either.

As I said, I like Reddit. It's just a site with a bunch of people. Some subreddits are better than others.
