I don't agree with what you say, but I will defend, with my life, your right to say it. ~ From @reddit(Thats now being destroyed)—

Recently, Reddit banned some of subreddits(eg. /r/fatpeoplehate) that they considered as harmful/distasteful/demeaning to some kind of people. I don’t agree with what eveyone says on Reddit, but I think they should be able to say it.
Aaron Swartz, one of the cofounders of Reddit, was one of the proponents of Free Speech on the Internet. And for some time, Reddit did used to stand for Free Speech, time when Facebook was creating a Walled Garden of its own.
I used to love Reddit, It used to truly a place to say whatever you wanted to say. Currently, its new CEO and friends are trying to make it a more advertiser-friendly place. So they are eager to cut-off its ugly parts, the parts that made it a truly free speech place on Internet.
