To the displeasure of some of Reddit's most obscure groups and users—such as those on racist and misogynist message boards—the popular site's new chief executive still wants to crack down on its less-than-savory elements.
Co-founder Steve Huffman announced the site's updated approach to offensive content in a Reddit post on Thursday. The new CEO said the site is considering a new set of restrictions, such as banning "anything that harasses, bullies or abuses."
The site will also consider banning content that incites violence toward a person or group of people and anything illegal (e.g., copyrighted material). Visitors to Reddit must also "opt in" to view adult content or anything that violates "a common sense of decency," Huffman wrote.
