After three years of hosting /r/PedoWorld, Reddit banned it a day after my article. Click for full size.
Reddit, proudly hosting a forum for exchanging child rape images. For three years.
It was not possible to access the subreddit as it was private to members only. Nor would I have tried to access it as the public description was as set out right and I would not have wished to risk committing an offence by viewing it.
Whilst it is pleasing that Reddit acted unusually quickly after the media inquiry, it is regrettable that no action was taken in the preceding three years. Reddit clearly needs to raise its game on identifying and removing child abuse material.
Reddit claims to be committed to free speech. In reality, it seems to be committed to free speech until it becomes embarrassing or commercially inconvenient. With breath-taking amorality Reddit played host to /r/Coontown for years only to turn on them when they made adverse headlines. Whilst banning /r/Coontown it ignored the plethora of openly paedophile subreddits such as /r/Pedofriends. Now, MHN exposes something far, far worse.
Child abuse victims have publicly called for Steve Huffman’s resignation due to the toleration of paedophile material, one claiming nightmares of him as her abuser. Picture of Steve Huffman used under the parody exception to UK and US copyright law. Click for full size.
In the run-up to the 2016 United States Presidential elections, the Chief Executive of Reddit, Steve Huffman, came into dispute with users of the Donald Trump supporters’ subreddit /r/The_Donald. They once again pointed out the apparently hypocritical targeting of them, using as their example the /r/PedoFriends subreddit. This sub-forum was allegedly a support group for ‘reforming’ paedophiles. However in reality they openly discussed such things as the challenges of downloading child pornography.
Earlier this year I started work on Fitter – a Twitter rival (F*** Twitter). Gab beat me to it and frankly is pretty damn good. I may still do my offering but I do not want to compete so it will now be something more like a Reddit / Twitter hybrid. Gab is very impressive and I wholeheartedly support Andrew Torba.
Why is Trump still on Twitter? The site is a dying anti-Conservative platform with plummetting stock value and the hatred of right-wingers everywhere. Recently I identified members of a paedophile hate group called Kiwi Farms on Twitter. One member was openly calling for genocide including cutting off the fingers of Jews. Another exhorted users to visit the ‘Child Porn Captial [sic] of the Internet’.
In this video I expose a vile paedophile internet troll trying to infiltrate the alt-Right, free speech social media network Gab.ai and the movement of good and decent people who supported the election of Donald Trump. This troll, Joshua Conner Moon (@Moon on Gab.ai) is an horrific paedophile who spews hate speech to try to damage perceptions of Trump, his supporters and the Alt-Right.

In perhaps the most poignant and powerful condemnation yet, posters on Reddit’s forums for survivors of child abuse are calling for the resignation of the company’s CEO Steve Huffman.
In a heart rending post on a Reddit abuse survivor forum, a user known only as ‘CASSeeBurn’ (Cassie) explains her horror at discovering that Reddit hosts paedophile text chat forums, that executives know and nothing has been done. She goes on to say that Steve Huffman literally haunts her nightmares. Artist impression of Steve Huffman child rape nightmare, background and stock photos of children by Dreamstime.

As well as controversial political forums, Reddit hosts a number of innocent, non-political communities. One set of little known forums includes the subreddits for survivors of abuse called /r/adultsurvivors, /r/rapecounseling and /r/survivorsofabuse. Last night a user called CASSeeBurn (Cassie) posted to each of them  (archive) , explaining she was using a burner account to escape reprisals.
Recently Reddit users, especially /r/The_Donald have been petitioning vigorously for Reddit CEO Steve Huffman to resign. Users have also called for a boycott on the purchase of ‘Reddit gold’. The reasons for this are twofold –
Firstly, Reddit staff are perceived as hostile to one of its most popular and active subreddits. Secondly, whilst he is openly opposed to those who support his own country’s president-elect Donald Trump, Huffman is happy to allow horrific paedophile text chat board on Reddit, including users who claim to work with children and to masturbate over them.

/r/Pedofriends is a text only subreddit hosted on Reddit and open to all. The forum takes advantage of a loophole in the law – text discussion of paedophilia is legal in Britain, the United States and other English speaking countries. The subreddit claims to only allow constructive discussion amongst paedophiles who wish to resist their urges and change their ways. It claims that discussion of children and illegal activities is prohibited. The forum is still sickening so, legal or not, I encourage readers spend no more time there than necessary to verify it is real.
The moderators of /r/Pedofriends insist they do not allow discussion of illegal activities.
Under Steve Huffman’s leadership Reddit bans Conservative forums, but acts as a haven for paedophiles to discuss how oppressed they feel when searching for child pornography on Google causes legal warnings to appear.
