    Apparently one of the whales of Reddit got banned recently. This coincides with the banning of several high-profile domains.

    I haven't seen a thread about this yet.

    Discuss.

    It's only a temporary ban so what's the big deal in the grand scheme of things?

    If I'm running the Businessweek SM department, I'd take the folks at Reddit out to dinner, give them some tickets to the Super Bowl and the Olympics and let them use the corporate jet to enjoy the moments, LOL.

    Somewhere, these types of deals are being made and that is pure BH baby!

    I'm not really sure that it's a huge deal on this thread, but the implications for Reddit as a community are pretty huge. I wonder how many powerusers practice that black arts...

    Probably more than is let on to.

    Plenty of them!

    Show me a platform, network or a publicly accessible website such as Reddit that is not being controlled on the back-end by BHers and I will show you an Internet property that DOES NOT EXIST!
