Reddit bans r/watchpeopledie in the wake of the NZ mosque massacres

Reddit has banned r/watchpeopledie, a subreddit that hosted videos of people dying gruesomely. The ban comes after the subreddit re-hosted videos of the recent mosque massacres in New Zealand. The subreddit has been banned for violating Reddit’s content policy about glorifying or encouraging violence.

Of course they do. Censorship when it's convenient.

This made me delete my account, along with the Reddit app as well. r/watchpeopledie was a supremely interesting sub, and the PC world literally drove it to the ground.

I had no idea something like this existed. What a gross forum!

Because making it harder to track this information can only make counter terrorism efforts easier

I am against ALMOST all censorship. However, if there was a time to censor, this would be it. This assumes that police already know about such footage, and can prosecute the case with the footage that they already have. I am happy for people to say offensive things. But if someone's child or spouse is killed on video, and people come to see it (mostly for fun, not for detective work, if I had to guess), that should not be made public. Heck, many types of videography require a living and willing person to sign a consent / release form. Not wanting to be in video publicly as one does sounds like a decent expectation of privacy, even if in a "public" place.
