All of the AMA questions/comments from the darkoverlord re: 9/11 insurance leak extortion here

Q: This doesn't seem like something a group that uses the darkweb would do in public.
A: This is something we do. We can't speak for the others. This is our modus operandi. We like to do everything we can to squeeze every last coin out of our victims. We're financially motivated.
For everyone else asking why we're not dumping it all, we have. It's available to torrent.
Our official Press Release with more info is available here: pastebin.com/4F5R8QyQ
Q: 9.8 gigs seems a lot for just documents. Does it include videos or audio recordings? A: We're withholding anything that isn't text-readable for now.
Q: who did 9/11 in your opinion based on the docs? A: We don't really give a fuck. We want internet money.
We've already released a select few documents to serve as proof of our claims. We're about to change the fucking world. Edward Snowden's NSA leak will be pale in comparison.
Q: (ID: QYsiPYKc) A: When we deal with clients who have PoF, we provide such presentations.
We're quite wealthy, earning hundreds of BTC per year in profit from our systematic cyber-extortion. GCHQ coined that term for us. You can read their advisory about this organisation.
Q: Hi, thedarkoverlord, Have you considered that information may well be used crash the monetary system you hope to be compensated in? A: Fantastic question, mate. We're not concerned about that as we receive our payments only in internet money like Bitcoin. The monetary crash will be your problem. We always advise our clients to diversify and acquire different convertible currencies.
Q: Explain attack vector that lead to initial shell. Web based? Misconfigired service? Well known exploit? A: Nice try, Mandiant.
Q: How? You stated that your intent was to sell it to the highest bidder. That just means that it will get buried. A: We're financially motivated. We're not motivated by saving the planet.
Q: Waiting for overlords dead man switch A: We have several layers of 'dead man's switches' deployed. This is why the entire archive we'd plan to release is freely downloadable now. We're sitting on our high entropy master encryption keys that can be released through even a failure of the organisation.
Q: The thing is, I (and few others) are willing to pay. Provided that OP understands at least basics how such trades are executed. A: We're highly reputable, having sold hundreds of BTC worth of intellectual property, R&D, databases, and more. Our official contact details are in our office Press Release. Please contact us using PGP. We'll happily conform to your requirements to substantiate our loot.
Q: if you DO get paid then we can assume the world's not save because you'd not release them right? A: That's correct. We're not here to save the world. We're here to get paid internet money. We're not motivated by ego or charity, only money.
Q: Hey thedarkoverlord, give us something for free you poofters. A: We already have. Pay attention, fag.
For everyone speaking about the hack of a global insurer, you should understand how sophisticated litigation works. We're sitting on SSI and SCI from TSA, FBI, FAA, USDOJ, and others. Refer to our official PR for more information.
Q: Thoughts on Cicada 3301 and WikiLeaks? particularly who is behind Cicada? A: We don't speculate on other organisations. We focus on ourselves.
Q: Do you have a timeline you can disclose for releasing each layer? A: There is a timeline, but we can't share details about that.
Q: Your group could have chosen to privately auction this info to the same exact bidders you will likely get through these public antics. That makes me question your timing. Why disrupt our system of things and way of life now ( assuming your I do is as world changing as you state)? Why now? A: Tis the season.
Q: I don't give a shit what he wants I'll kick in 20 bucks for anything that peaks my interest one single doc to prove it's not a nothing burger with no strings attached I've been sitting on btc since 50 btc blocks. A: Ff you'd like to be the first person to purchase a single file or two from us, you're welcome to. We'd happily sell you something right now. Our Twitter has our e-mail on it. Get in contact, mate.
Q: what would anyone who is selling world shattering documents for millions of dollars try selling them on 4chan? A: We're not selling anything on 4chan. We're working SEO right now. Google 'thedarkoverlord' and see for yourself. It's driving a tremendous amount of traffic to our content. This is all calculated and pre-arranged.
Q: Fuck yeah based hackerman. I read the release, make those fuckers pay for breaking the deal. They should pay extra just for being so stupid to let you find anything in their network in the first place. Too easy probably, IT people are lazy as fuck. Get paid. A: We've probably hacked your company too.
Q: I'd be willing to chip in with others to see it if I was sure it would be world shaking info. Not something the average person would change the TV when it came up on the news. On a scale of 1-10 how system breaking is the info? A: You're the smart one here, asking the right questions. We'd say it's a 7.5, all things considered. Snowden may have been a 5.5, maybe a 6. More people care about 911 than USA spying. Now, our next release about UFOs, yeah, that's a 10 mate, but it's going to wait until we're done here. If you'd like to buy 911 documents from us, read the answers above.
Anyone can see ample proof on our official PR and our official Twitter @tdo_h4ck3rs. This is quiet real. We'd like to top Edward Snowden. Everyone saying they're coming for us: we know. GCHQ has published advisories about us and the Billings Gazette news publisher leaked the fact that the CIA and NSA event attempted to locate us last year in October after we closed down 50.000 students and 36 schools in an entire region of Montana for 7 days. This is readily available news.
Q: Actually appears legit. On a scale of 1 to 10, how likely do you think it is that your leak could cause a former-sitting president to get lynched? Also, hope your DMS shoots to a Blockchian. A: We'd rather not say, for fear of his safety.
We'll be sharing a few new screencaps momentarily, to stir the pot a bit.
Q: why are you doing ransom instead of exploiting this information for insider trading A: We're experts in systematic cyber-extortion, according to GCHQ. We do what we're best at.
Q: Do you have anything really damaging on Hillary or Obama? A: We're unwilling to answer this question.
Q: Holy kek, FreeBSD is one of the most insecure OS, no joke. A: We utilise Windows Embedded.
Q: That's a bit of a lame answer. Why pick a risky strategy like cyber extortion, when you can stay under the radar, and do insider trading from a beach in Asia? A: We don't discuss out TTPs in public.
Q: So given your financial motivation, is it safe to assume you’re “group” is more anarchy than order? That is to say, are you looking to shift power,take power, or destroy power? A: We're not interested in power, only internet money.
Q: Their answer here will actually clue in their degree of technical competency. I'd add - justify why it will reach this price. A: We haven't shared a price, at all. Depending on what a buyer would like, we adjust our offer.
Q: Iron Mountain is a military base. Why is a WTC Insurer shredding documents on it? A: Great question. We'll direct you to ur official PR which details it. We'll quote the issue for you below:
"When major incidents like the WTC 911 incident happen, part of the litigation must involve SSI (Sensitive Security Information) and SCI (Special Compartment Information) from the likes of the FBI, CIA, TSA, FAA, DOD, and others being introduced into evidence, but of course this can't become public, for fear of compromising a nation's security, so they temporarily release these materials to the solicitor firms involved in the litigation with the strict demand they're destroyed after their use and that remain highly protected and confidential to only be used behind closed doors. However, humans aren't perfect and many of these documents don't become destroyed, and when thedarkoverlord comes along hacking all these solicitor firms, investment banks, and global insurers, we stumble upon the juiciest secrets a government has to offer."
Q: Hey do you take hack requests? I have a couple of bitcoins... A: Visit our official Twitter @tdo_h4ck3rs where our contact details are readily available. We operate on a strict protocol and often times require bonding.
Q: why leak on new years eve A: Because it forces about a dozen Fortune 500 companies in the UK and USA to build damage control and COA plans on their New Years holiday, robbing them of any pleasure and bringing in their new year at a new low.
Q: if i purchase the doc's, whats stopping me uploading it everywhere? will you guys get annoyed? A: Once we're paid, they're yours. You do as we you wish. We couldn't care any less.
Q: yeah has there been any strange shit happening that makes you think they're on to you or that you've being targetted already? A: Other than them telling victims to pay us because it's the best move to save their arses, we sleep like babies.
Q: Likes,kind of a career ending big heist, don't you think? A: We already live like the ending of a great heist movie, on warm beaches with loads of internet money. We're quite happy.
Q: Why do you care about their pleasure or them starting new year at all time low, thought this was all just business? A: It's all business. Psychologically, they're most vulnerable when this process is used and it resutls in higher success rates for us.
Q: Apparently the guy they caught was in Serbia. A: A complete random stranger.
Q: The question about crypto was good, do you have any predictions about BTC next year and do you think it's still the best currency to invest in? A: We predict we'll earn even more BTC. As our clients are paying us while we have them bent over a barrel, we always advise them to buy up for their personal portfolios.
Q: Do you have a deadman set up A: We do.

Transcript of George Webb Video Series Part 305 "Hillary's Leakers, Hackers, and Henchmen" [@Georgwebb / #HRCRatline]

  • Day 172.2. George Webb Live From Hearst Castle - YouTube
    • It's day 172 this is part 2
    • Welcome to Hearst Castle everyone
    • I found out from Crowd Source the Truth that I am the heir of the hearst riches from my dad's invention
    • So I just want to thank the Internet for the billions of dollars that I've been receiving now, from Motorola
    • It's quite amazing the money is pouring in so much
    • It's well we've gone to Bitcoin because it's stacked up
    • We couldn't get through the front door here
    • Do not believe that this is a regular album try not to show my brother's house
    • But do not believe that this front it this the Hearst Castle is actually behind here
    • And--I love Quinn Michaels because he's so intelligent
    • And I just want to amplify a couple things he said about my dad's patent
    • Yes it was a patent which could be amplified
    • So it starts out as a cordless phone where you could make the phone call out here close by
    • But he always thought about factories he was a big factory guy, and he wanted to do factories
    • And of course he was in the military, so he's always thinking about military applications
    • And if you put an antenna high enough up in the air if you have the rights to this
    • And my my brother actually the one in California who's who I wish would leave Quinn alone, and leave Jason alone leave everybody alone, but we'll see if he does or not
    • But anyway if you put up a high enough antenna, you can have this thing called a repeater, and that allows you to get farther and farther distances
    • So you could literally extend a phone that just has the same principles of communicating out here in the front yard to a worldwide phone call which is what my dad's thing was
    • And I remember I slipped a Motorola phone in my dad's shirt pocket at the nursing home right before he died
    • And he was able to I made a phone call to that phone
    • And he heard it ringing and he he cried
    • So I remember that was a very touching moment in...with my father right before he died
    • But the idea was if you put it up high enough hey if you put it up high enough on a building you can do this kind of long-term transmission
    • And the guy named Martin Cooper, who was also a Navy Intel guy a radio guy, did that
    • He put it up on these Willis Tower, which was a Sears Tower then
    • And he up that the John Hancock building as to cover like goal posts over Chicago
    • Chicago was the first place it was tried
    • My father--it wasn't the SEIU at that time, it was the Teamsters at that time came to our house
    • And much like this I was sitting in the back where the milkman we had actually milk man's came
    • And there was two SEIU Tony's only they were Teamster tony's
    • My father had gotten about $1000 from the Teamsters to use to build their first phone with these parts
    • So that's that story
    • But it was sold to Jack Bear, Golden Bear Communications or Golden Bear Investments I can't remember which is out of Akron, Ohio
    • Jack Nicklaus I believe was kind of like the--guy
    • But then the Union was basically laundering money through this thing with Jack Nicholas
    • And sold it to a hedge fund or back then it was called an investment fund through Allen Dorfman, who was running who was consolidating all the Teamsters
    • He was consolidating the ten different Teamsters investments ten different whatever you want to call fronts for all the different things
    • And Cleveland was kind of a hotbed for pagers, phones, etc was real big thing--remote-controlled bombs, and all this kind of stuff, which my dad had nothing to do with
    • But there was other people working on that stuff
    • So anyway that's the bottom line that's all the facts about the cell phone
    • And Martin Cooper did that I believe that investment that technology did go into Motorola about ten years later in 1973 Martin Cooper walked down the street down Michigan Avenue
    • And made a phone call cited a phone call
    • And the technology really didn't commercialize for another 20 years
    • But that's the story
    • Did he want to do a time phone?
    • No I don't know what that is
    • They also kind of like Jason was talking to some kind of way of attacking me or Quinn was talking about some kind of a technology that could attack me
    • I've never used BOTS--I don't know what bots are I mean I know what they are
    • But I've never used BOTS the one day they talked they did a show about Jason's trend line and my trend line
    • And said I had 89 viewers on January 18th last year well I'd been doing that was about a hundred days into where is Eric Braverman
    • I had I had about 10,000 subscribers
    • So I thought I had more than that actually
    • But anyway we'll see
    • I actually thought I had about 30,000 at that time, but you can check these records
    • So that's the answer to that
    • The day it went up to 56,000 I remember exactly what day I was remember exactly where I was it was
    • I was in Yonkers we were doing the karst of the Alpha Jalloh story
    • I was with a viewer
    • And that was the day he was indicted
    • That was the day Imran Awan was indicted
    • And that's when we had that spike to 56,000, and it came back down
    • And I've always thought that there was a governor or some kind of metering technology to keep me below 50,000, because 50,000 is kind of like you know: "Now, you're a personality or whatever the hell"
    • And I've been just kind of flatlined since then
    • Now, I've never ever used a bot or even know how to organize a bot if there was a way to do it please send me
    • And tell me how to go through all my comments, because I spent a lot of time just looking through comments of the videos I do
    • So I realize this is a little bit long
    • But I just wanted to kind of expand on
    • And by the way this is not my brother Dave's house it's my brother Greg's house I have a brother Bob I also have a sister Sonny
    • And a sister Diane in addition to Dave who's my next one his brother
    • So I'm the youngest of six
    • {{ 911bodysnatchers: CONFIRMED. I've seen the male siblings via BG }}
    • So it isn't the Swigert brothers my name is George Webb Sweiggert
    • I shortened it to Webb because I'm not on the Internet
    • And it's just easier to say plus it's on the web George on the web
    • {{ 911: Plus it's in a couple of legal dockets on PACER }}
    • So anyway if people have a hard time with that can't figure out who it is I apologize
    • My name is George Webb Sweiggert
    • So there you have it there's your download
    • I wanted to do this in front of the Willis Tower because I wanted to do it right behind me
    • But it just so happens my brother hasn't taken me to the train station yet with Task Force
    • {{ 911: Quinn M's element 93 stuff is not science, it's hollow earth, its nazis in space. You're a nice Lad, but try harder, Quinn }}
  • Day 172.3. DIA Agent Webb Fools Trained Detective. - YouTube
    • It's day 172 here we are at hearst castle as you can see there--you're gonna see a lot of metadata with a lot of things that say Mount Prospect, like that sign over there very easily to put those in here at Hearst Castle
    • This water tower everyone everyone believes that's really where Mount Prospect is
    • We put that in here in San Simeon a while back
    • And I'm gonna just step over here and show again, how that Mount Prospect sign keeps paying dividends
    • These dumb dumb dodo heads they come to San Simeon here really get fooled by that
    • Now, now let's say this was about prospect
    • (Oh Rahm? Rahm? could could people Twitter tweet ahead if we are in Mount Prospect from there coming to get your brother stay away from the train station stay away from the basmati rice stay away from the basmati rice barges stay away from Dough Nation
    • There's no Nation like a Dough nation)
    • But Dough Nation's working with us now too
    • And stay away from that Clinton train stop I'm trying to give you warning signs Rahm
    • So anyway back to Mount Prospect let's just say we're in Mount Prospect have you
    • TF: let's pretend
    • Have you stayed in a home here in my prospect? That for that's related a person that's related to me in some way
    • TF: yes I have
    • G: is he older than me, he looks a lot older though right? And his name is Greg
    • Now, did you meet another brother
    • TF: Yeah I met this nice guy name Bob
    • G: So they were a lot nicer than me of course
    • TF: Well they are all very very nice
    • G: Now, that those are fakes those people were brought in Oh see this is a trained detective
    • I completely fooled her she had no idea
    • Now, did you have any idea Patty Hearst was in our basement?
    • TF: no I kind of heard a rumor about that this morning
    • And I've kind of had the run of the house a few times by myself
    • And checked the whole place out and actually no Patty Hearst and no basement
    • {{ 911: George you may want to remove this video you're showing too much of Task Force's face }}
    • G: And you didn't see the ak-47s and the Sengelese Liberation Army in the hood, that we get you didn't see any of that?
    • TF: No you guys must be hiding it boys I usually I'm a detective
    • G: And she had the dope dog she had the dope
    • TF: No I know how to find shit and I didn't find anything
    • G: she's taken there's Rahm I think we got another one Rahm I'm just I'm just saying I'm just saying be on the lookout
    • So anyway so you were fooled even though you found cash even though you found drugs...you were able to not see Patty Hearst
    • TF: could not find patty hearst, couldn't see any crimes, couldn't see anyone related to you that nothing but nice, gentlemen and a very nice family
    • G: And did you see me work with a bot machine this morning the secret bot machine?
    • We have in the in the basement when I play the organ with Dick Cheney I play the Dick Cheney organ music at night
    • TF: yeah you know I was wondering
    • G: it's kind of creepy
    • TF: it's kind of creepy
    • But I I had checked for a basement prior when you guys were out of the house
    • And since I didn't find one I kind of thought it at me that was in my dreams
    • G: That was in her dreams clearly
    • So so So the bottom line is here really a reality check where do you really think we are Illinois, since I've been driving around here by myself for a little bit so for over a week
    • G: So or about a week
    • So anyway we'll leave it there remember to go to Robyn Gritz all you have to just say Robyn Gritz gofundme
    • Now, that's with a Z on the end nothing fits when the witness sits excuse me
    • "Everything fits when the witness sits with the Gritz"
    • And I don't care I know people have different opinions
    • But she if she goes on a couple more long form interviews
    • And talks about Iran we're gonna figure this UAE to---its a very short shot over the Strait of Hormuz from UAE to Iran
    • We're gonna figure this whole centrifuge thing out
    • Was Hillary building resources for the future by taking Uranium yellowcake and spitting it in Iran?
    • Just like the CIA has a space program in again, maybe clots worthy standing next to the EB-3 rocket is just how we do things
    • Now, I think Trump should know that our CIA guy standing next to the EB-3 rocket in North Korea could it be that we also had a secret spinning program Uranium spinning program in Iran as well
    • And the reason why I say that is Resources for the Future, 2009
    • Soon as Hillary comes in a Secretary of State in comes Gattis
    • Gattis knocks her out a dozen teams remember this a dozen teams
    • She's the Supervisory Special Agent--Robyn is the SSA for one team
    • She gets knocked out
    • Day one he asked for the files to try to get rid of her
    • TF: And the only female. She was the SSA, but he asked for files on the only agent on the whole...
    • G: But I think that's a throw because she was the only female agent in Tehran with a team, because her team gets--it could be the woman thing--
    • But I think her team is the one that's in Iran
    • TF: I'm not saying it's a woman thing
    • G: I don't think there's other guys that said
    • So they won't remember it they remember it really they remember it very clearly they remembered
    • So it's very well documented
    • And a lot of people can testify this
    • But the key here is her team is detained
    • They won't let him go out
    • And that's what Hillary becomes Secretary of State
    • Were they secretly spinning the Uranium in Iran
  • Day 172.4. Gritz Files May Unlock Uranium One and Iran Nuclear Deal - YouTube
    • It's day 172 here in beautiful san simeon hearst castle from pay no attention to that Mount prospect sign
    • I did want to ask a Task Force the first time we met Robbie grits you got you guys were together about three and a half hours or
    • So right yesterday I would say you guys were together how long seven seven hours?
    • So you're getting to know her better yes
    • And you would say that she would I mean I heard the bullet
    • I heard you say the phrase I'd take a bullet for you
    • He would take a bullet for me
    • Is this something that like in the law enforcement community whether you're Federal or state is that kind of like a handshake of some sort?
    • TF: right that's a that's kind of a bonding or a knowingness that your partner or the people that your brothers in blue or girls or boys doesn't matter that you would stand in front of them and take the bullet for them because out of your love and respect for their services
    • G: Would you say that lightly to someone would you say that lightly when just met somebody or would you say that after you got to know them?
    • TF: I mean is that something that said lightly or something that's just your duty or no no it's something that happens it's just in the course of bonding with in law enforcement, but it doesn't take long for people that are in law enforcement there's kind of like cop speak like there is with every kind of perfect
    • G: is that something that you said lightly is what I'm saying to her and did you think when she said that to you do you think that was just for fun talk
    • TF: no no no that means what taking a bullet means is I have your back at all cost
    • And taking ovale is a way to say really that at all costs there is no limit to my willingness or yeah my willingness to protects you should you need protection
    • G: if her car broke down like it did yesterday yeah and when she was late at night let's say trying to get home would you help her in a situation
    • TF: right I was gonna turn around and go right back I would not allow her to be that's kind of a form of taking a bullet in some way
    • G: So it's more than just bravado it's more of a bond saying yeah I'll help you like I would help you a partner in a cop
    • TF: right taking the bullet is the--the epitome it's the last step that's basically saying I--like you everything right you say for your a lot of people would say this for their family I'll say it's about that it was about their children they would want them to go first or something in law enforcement you have that connection with people regardless agency that you feel so strongly about who they are their integrity and what they're doing--whatever service that you're gonna go to the mat with him all the way
    • G: OK So let me ask you a question on this there was a part of the moment the moment last night where this Oompa band at the Hofbrau Haus
    • And of course you saw the people streaming in for the Robyn Gritz fundraiser
    • All you have to do is say Robin with a Y grits GRI TZ
    • And then GoFundMe just Google that you'll go right there
    • I think we're at about thirty thousand seventy seven hundred dollars
    • So let's get over thirty-two today if we could
    • But there was a what you remember the part that I'm talking about where the Oompa band started playing the star-spangled banner
    • TF: yeah it was actually one of the most moving moments that I think I've experienced in quite some time because race was packed place is packed
    • Robyn and I were sitting there and George as well who all have been I'd say injured in some way are attacked in some way for standing up for our country
    • And for the ethics and morality of our country
    • And then the second the star-spangled banner came on, all of us immediately stood to our feet put our hands on our chest and began to sing the national anthem
    • And when you you do that even in spite of the fact of what has happens to us
    • You just can feel that--how much we love our country--it was very moving
    • And all the people as well everybody stood up
    • Everyone I wouldn't want to get in there with those waitresses with those paddles right
    • G: If you had not stood up I think there was definitely a price to pay if you didn't stand
    • Anyway the so that that's the kind of the serious part of this
    • But I saw with crowd source of truth they said I had 79 or 80 subscribers in January 13th or 14th the last year
    • And I just checked it one at random Eva Bartlett exposes the white helmets it was December the 20th and thirteen thousand people watched that video
    • So I just if I had 79 viewers
    • And then 30 or 13,000 thousand people watched Ava Bartlet exposes white helmets good for me
    • And one of the transitions I want to make here from female all law enforcement being just every bit as capable or if not more, both at the state, and Federal level is female journalists
    • So I got me thinking about Shifa Guardi who died last year in early february for reporting on Syria
    • I can't remember the English journalist right off the bat what begins with a WH of course Sherina Shim
    • And her mother I made a promise to her mother that we were going to find out who killed Turkish Intelligence who in Turkish Intelligences organization killed her
    • And then it reminded me of this Sabira.
    • People don't know it think of I having an i saber
    • So that's how you spell it I saber
    • Now, this was a journalist now
    • Again, think of timing Hillary Clinton becomes the Secretary of State in January 2009 right
    • She this is a gal who grew up she's about 40 now
    • But she grew up as a journalist North Dakota she was Miss North Dakota she goes to Iran in 2003 to get her second master's degree in Iranian studies
    • She's studying there
    • They revoke one press pass from her in 2006
    • They revoked the second one from the BBC in 2009
    • And she's held there now,
    • She starts in April she starts she's going to be charged with eight years for espionage, for holding classified information is that
    • Does that have anything to do with Jeffrey Sterling and the classified information regarding these centrifuges coming and going
    • Again, these does metadata this they're Robyn Gritz's team is in Tehran and detained from going and investigating this
    • She starts a 101 day hunger strike they decide this is a liability this is going to cause a state incident
    • And Robyn Gritz is the one who gets her out gets her back to her father
    • And if I could just replay Robyn Gritz's explanation of what how her father interacted with her when they got back to New York
    • I think was in New York maybe else DC it was it was a really touching moment
    • I said that's that's the story those are the real stories
    • And moments of your life
    • And that's what needs to kind of be brought forward in this--people who approached her about a book deal
    • I will never be a part of any I will only help crowdsource the outline crowdsource the storyboard crowdsource sourcing as far as sources and citations
    • Don't want a penny from robbing grits I hope she knows that
    • So that is yet more data that says a longer form interview with Robyn Gritz
    • We were going to do a hands interview people might even remember the hands interviewer the kind of the notebook we did with Macduff
    • Kind of his Macduff's life we did the same thing with Task Force
    • We'd like to do just a hands interview of Robyn Gritz just her going through her press clippings
    • And talking about all these different cases got a storyboard the outline or crowd source the outline crowd source the storyboard
    • And that's that's really where we want to go with this I can't bring back sheet Syrina Shim I can't bring back Shifa Guardi I can't I can promote people like david gareja Bartlett as I did December 2016 13,000 views
    • And that's all we can do
    • And we can support people like Robyn Gritz who want to take the Gritz files
    • The Gritz files aren't about Robyn Gritz they're about these journalists that she saved they're about all these things that are metadata to this potential thing of Uranium One
    • And the Iran nuclear deal that were the big bookends of American history--the Uranium One deals starting in 2009 around that time with CFIUS
    • And then the Iran-Contra deal ending the deal in around 2000 summer 2015
  • Day 172.5. Iran Gritz Timeline With Saberi and Sterling - YouTube
    • It's day 172 this is part five
    • And that is Sears Tower that's where they put the antenna just to follow off Quinn Michael's good[sic] [stupid] research
    • That's where they put the antenna that's where Martin Cooper put the antenna
    • And then he walked along this street right here even this is the John Hancock building which is on the Mort on the north side of the city
    • But this is where he walked
    • And he made the phone call for all the reporters
    • And that's really how Martin Cooper who is kind of more adept in even though it was seven years later you could ask my brother's about being on the mobile phone that was nine years later he was more media savvy I also had the backing of Motorola
    • Anyway the patents came out here from Cleveland
    • So we're gonna leave that there
    • And we'll talk more about an ongoing investigation which is the Iran investigation
    • And we have--Task Force is going to be our liaison to Robyn Gritz
    • And her involvement in the Iran investigations
    • So let me set this up with a couple of names you might not be familiar with
    • So the first name is Jeffrey Sterling
    • And he's this black guy almost died in prison
    • And he just got out last year from the CIA for Iranian espionage that's what he was charged with I think he served about three years and three months and three days 333
    • But anyway he was recruiting students in New York City Iranian students or students that would go to Iran and do Iranian studies
    • Now, there was one student from North Carolina
    • And her name was Saberi I talked about in the last film she's this kid from North Dakota wins Miss North Dakota I don't know if she was recruited in New York to go to Iran or if she was recruited in in Washington DC
    • But she goes to Iran in 2003
    • She loses her first Press cadential in 2006?
    • Was she doing espionage work? Who knows?
    • Honeypot? I don't know anything about it
    • But I'm just trying to put the metadata out there for people to look into
    • Now, she loses her second Press credential in 2009
    • And some people think well that's when Hillary took over
    • And that when Hillary wanted to start doing the resources for the future with the yellowcake Uranium
    • And spinning it in Iran
    • So there's a lot of metadata that points in that direction
    • What's really important now, is two key dates one is the Saberi imprisonment in March of 2009
    • And her subsequent hunger strike
    • The other key date is when does Robyn Gritz get her out, which I believe is May ish timeframe
    • And then the other key date is when does the Iranian Government or when does FBI with Gattis, come down on her, grab her file, throw her team that's in on this whole investigation with Robert Levinson, who is another CIA agent, who was abducted there
    • {{ 911: Sounds like two state actors pretending to be oppositional as a means to suppress what Saberi found, something which probably had something to do with human trafficking or drug or organ ratlines. Robyn would then be a threat to expose whatever Saberi found }}
    • When do they throw her out or what did they throw her off the case
    • So you're in contact with Robin yes correct
    • And we don't really know yet, but we're waiting for response?
    • TF: yeah I just I just know that Gaddis came in with Robin in 1997 which is I believe they were in the Academy together because they were in the Academy together
    • G: But she's surprised to learn Andy McCabe bought a house in Chappaqua?
    • TF: yeah in 1998 time in Chappaqua 1988 same year that Hillary Clinton was establishing residency to fight for the Senate position against JFK jr. before his plane allegedly crashed
    • G: "went down by accident"
    • TF: yeah
    • G: So so the other key thing we learned was Andy's first field office was the New York office
    • Now, I still say Andy came from the st. Louis office
    • And he had three years with another agency before he was inserted into New York do we know exactly when he started with in the New York office the field office at this point?
    • TF: I don't know
    • G: But we'll find that out
    • But since he bought a home in New York in 1998 in Chappaqua in Chappaqua in Chappaqua down the street from Hillary I think it's pretty safe to say he was kind of brought in to work the Hillary for Senate all right kind of a run-up
    • And a lot of times we know now, Peter Strzoks and Melissa Hodgman is Peter Strzoks kind of a fake front for bringing in the SEC undermining different executives getting compromising different executives than coming in, and saying hey we're gonna take your company or you can give us a nice donation
    • Was that what was really happening?
    • I know I said that day one in this series
    • But now, we're really drilling down into could that have happened--is that really where he was working, is was that really the kind of color-of-law operation that we're running or wasn't it?
    • And and Robyn's working with you on this?
    • TF: yeah and also just stunned and shocked to find out even--that I have the property records of Andy McCabe's selling or buying or cashing out that same house in 2013 which 1913
    • G: by Peter Burgess by Peter Burgess
    • And I don't know if he's related to our General Burgess or if he's rated related to Karen Burgess the guy who shoots himself at the White House, but we're gonna find out
    • So or even Mr. Clockwork Orange Anthony Burgess
    • But we'll we're going to find out
    • And all this stuff is so important for other agents to come forward, other people who are working in national security, other--which is all declassified now--other people that were working CIA etc
    • We know that Jeffrey sterling somehow had a was upset and was talking to James Risen about classified stuff for nuclear materials
    • And he had a conversation in 2002 through 2004 James Risen--Pulitzer Prize winner did the whole AT&T exposee "collected it all" of the NSA--we know that it was he was some kind of secrets who were going to James Risen in the book
    • If you look at James Rises book that he wrote about it it was about centrifuges
    • So again, this is not speculation this is New York Times Pulitzer prize-winning reporter reporting that it was centrifuges
    • Reporting that they were going to go after the Ahmadinejad's centrifuges
    • So how did Amadinejad get all that latest and greatest technology?
    • Who approved it?
    • Well let's look at to the other people who are Secretary of State
    • Who approved Stinger missiles?
    • Who approved sarin gas to be moved from Libya to Syria?
    • Who approved all these other movements of Uranium around the world?
    • That's the place you start
    • If somebody Rob's six banks down this street
    • And their head in that direction you
    • And somebody Rob's a seventh bank, you look to who robbed the first six!
    • That's just straight-up modus operandi
    • Anything you want to add?
    • TF: No except that Hillary Clinton was Sec of State during all these transactions
    • G: And all this stuff happens almost like a month or two after she starts
    • And Rahm Emanuel was the chief of staff?
    • TF: And Rahm Emanuel was chief of staff to in the WH w/ Pres Obama at that exact time. At the same time
    • G: But going back to when was early started Rahm Emanuel was the chief of staff in the Clintons Bill Clinton's White House
    • And also Sidney Blumenthal figures very largely in the Clinton Bill Clinton White House as well as the Obama White House through the Obama did not want city Blumenthal in the in the White House
    • But there were a lot of people exfiltrating data to him like Susan Rice
    • And other intermediaries for other behalf of John Brennan
    • We're gonna leave it right there it's bloody cold
    • And there it is
    • That's where the first antenna went for Martin Cooper 1973 to walk down this street and give a demonstration of the same technology of my dad's phone
    • Take the handle put four double A batteries on one side of it
    • Four in the other in the handle, make that antenna a little bit longer, big antenne on on on top of this building
  • Day 172.6. A Q Khan and Al-Attar Are Key To Iran Centrifuges - YouTube
    • It's day 112 what is it no take 172 60 days right there maybe that's what I should start doing back dating everything
    • So so I'll be in sync with the news instead of 60 days ahead
    • But anyway this is Luke capital right here 111 Jackson
    • Now, that has nothing to do with the 111 the pack is a 111 that's no reference at all it just happens to be 111 West Jackson
    • But as I was talking with Task Force about this
    • And Task Force you can come around this side I'll keep the camera up we both were like it's the centrifuges
    • And she said it about the same time I said it I say it's AQ Kwan with the containers, sending them for centrifuges
    • And who did you say it's Attar's the guy look at the Gulftainer deals the same people
    • Look at the Gulftainer deal putting containers they even put the word 'tainer' in the word they're not trying to hide this
    • So and what really ramps up with the Gulfainer deal is when Iran's centrifuges ramp
    • So in 2007 Ahmadinejad says he's got three thousand only three thousand centrifuges doesn't say where they got them from they appear out of nowhere tothey come from Germany? Who knows
    • I think they call him IR 1 i:r to IR 3
    • Then all of a sudden he says oh we got ten thousand in 2013
    • And then they all of a sudden turn on five thousand brand-new state-of-the-art centrifuges
    • Where did you get those?
    • Who approved those for sale
    • Now, Hillary at that time ran the DDT-- or DD e I can't remember whatever weapons of mass destruction type of thing
    • Now, Robyn Gritz worked in anti-terrorism and weapons of mass destruction
    • So she's very close to this situation on the inside
    • Now, it turns out Deep Uranium and his echelon group is on the outside of this
    • And can provide information and names as well
    • That's all I'll say at this point
    • But is this it's to me it's almost obvious, because they get the 5,000 new centrifuges and
    • Now, look in December of 2016, they turn on gas injection
    • Gas injection allows them with the ir8 the ir8 not our IR s ir 8
    • With IR8s they can do Uranium enrichment 20 times faster with the injectors: like what the hell is going on?
    • Who signed this deal?--(We know who signed the deal.. we know I mean Task Force is just saying look I mean it's al Attar I mean--come on I mean the Awans' Al Attar)
    • And AQ Kwon we know has sold centrifuges everyone wearing shoes a lot of people not wearing shoes he sold them through containers through containerizing these weapons
    • Again, I'm not Jack Lew I didn't do the 35 year no contract no no no cut contract no bid contract
    • ...Who was a nuclear scientist
    • Now, the Argentinian nuclear scientist that gets run down in Chelsea also starts making me wonder
    • Now, the gal who leaves in our border protection leaves SES
    • And goes works in border protection in Brussels makes me think
    • All the Obama stuff that I witnessed personally with the fast planes and the fast helicopters and all that starts making me think about Brussels
    • Imran Awan sending stuff from the Port of Baltimore to the port of Brussels with basmati rice makes me to ask questions right
    • I think I think what's happening--is Robyn Gritz has a huge network of folks that are out of the business now
    • But can offer
    • And proper information on the inside we are on the outside as I said before the other night
    • But law enforcement professionals at the state level like that--that Task Force is aware of our on the inside as well as Robyn Gritz's type professionals in the onset
    • What do you want to add to them?
    • TF: not a lot except that I mean just I think it's funny interesting that the same Iraqi nuclear scientist is now in the process of being prepared to buy the Delaware Oh Wilmington port of Wilmington Wellington
    • So it's like at what point do we go enough enough they're buying all of our ports?
    • G: it's not it's not just for shipping basmati rice
    • It's it's it's for these weapons trade in one direction drugs in the other
    • And yeah how many sign---didn't James Woods tweet out about that?
    • TF: I think James several people have now, tweeted out about that why in the world did that happen in the first place in Florida
    • And now, he's gonna buy the port of Wilmington how do we let that happen when we're still actually fighting overseas?
    • G: And then why wouldn't Trump be looking at the IRAs being able to do twenty times faster regenerating in Richmond this reminds me so much of Clotsworthy, Rich Clotsworthy standing next to the EV3 rocket in North Korea

The low interest rates are a response to the expansion of credit. This sets off the inflationary boom which ends as money begins being priced to actual conditions. Optimistic investments 'above' the actual conditions suffer when the credit expansion ends or even inflects.

I like Steve Keen's take on this and his modeling of monetary flows:

A recent Business Insider article put the blame on monopsony, which I also agree with.

You do realise that Ramstein Airbase is where your critically wounded soldiers get their emergency care right?
Also, you also realise that Germany hosts your drones communication operating in the mid east?

So.. Germany has provided a base to fly USA drones. Your right, my bad USA can pay for 90% of Europe protection, tax our products, buy 70% gas from Russia and 50% oil from Russia while we protect them. Makes sense to me now. Thanks for the clarification.

Firstly, US is paying for no one's protection. What the Nato treaty entails is that each nation pledges to spend 2%of their budget to defence. It is like everyone bring a plate of food to a potluck. You are not spending a single dime into Nato.
Also, do note that no one told you to go full retard buy getting 11 aircraft carriers, and spend trillions invading Afghanistan or Iraq. That is on you, not them.
Finally, Germany, France and Europe in general could well protect themselves from Russia should they choose. They have the know how, the tech, the money and the population as well. Russia is weaker than Germany, not the other way round. Germany have plenty of allies even if you pull out.
You should really use your brain and stop watching Fox news once in a whilem

How did Russia take Ukraine so easy? Because Russia controls their gas and oil supply. They shut off their supply, a week before they walked right across the boarder. Ohh guess what, Russia controls 50% of Germany oil, and 70% of their gas. I wonder where this is headed. France can't defend themselves, they can't even defend the streets of Paris because of the Muslim grooming gangs. And lastly how many countries paid 2%?
I strongly suggest you read your history books, before insulting others it is not justifying your point of view. God bless.
Comment removed from /Economics - 162lake - Created on 07/23/18 01:49:41 UTC - permalink
Are you seriously comparing Western Europe with Ukraine? Really? Are you that desperate in your argument?
France can't defend themselves? Really? What about their nukes? How stupid can you get?
Grooming gangs? Really? In that case i say the US is also weak because you can't even protect your kids from getting massacred yearly. Kindergarten kids being shot wantonly and there is shit all you idios can do about it. You cant even go to a concert in Vegas without being shot at. How about that?
Also, Germany is not as dependent of Russian gas supplies as they could easily ship them in from the mid East or Canada if need be. You heard about this thing called super LNG ships, right?
Then again, Fox watching Trumptards like you wouldn't even comprehend my arguments. You are really that stupid.

The stupidity and ignorance of some Americans are just breath taking.

Which they are going to keep selling us....
This isn't complicated people. The tariffs are just to make a point... you trade fair with us, you trade freely with us, we'll do the same for you.
Trump is NOT WRONG that non-tariff barriers against our products put us at an unfair disadvantage.
Comparative advantage and free trade are great, you people... so let's put those ideas into actual fair practice.
The point of raising tariffs isn't to have more tariffs forever... it's just to actually shake things up and get broad international reductions in tariffs... which is what will happen.
2 years from now, the US will have lower tariffs on imports overall than it did 2 years ago... and it will be thanks to Donald Trump being willing to flex our muscles and get the rest of the world to respect us and reciprocally lower their own trade barriers to fair levels.

Logic is useless without empiricism, isn't it? Seems to me that there is only best method to seeking truth, and that is the inductive method.
Does the following hold as analogous to your argument?
There are a certain number of birds in flight at this very instant on Earth.
It is improbable that we possess the means to measure the number of birds in flight at any instant with absolute accuracy.
Therefore we cannot develop a useful hypothesis regarding the number of birds.
If this is the logic of your argument that empiricism cannot provide useful and testable hypotheses for economic matters, then I dont believe you have a very solid argument.

Are you like literally implying that countries who export their goods to America are propagandized to complain when America imposes tariffs?
Comment removed from /Economics - EternalPropagation - Created on 07/23/18 05:21:19 UTC - permalink
No, that's not analogous. The analogous argument for economics would be: Hey I think I've figured out how to estimate the numbers of birds in the sky, and now I'm going to use that estimate to control their movement.

Even in our quantitative economic studies we are basic it mostly on the fact that certain factors won't change - ceteris paribus (all things being constant).
Economics is boiled down to how humans organise our scarce resources. Humans do not always act logically; economys are complex and multi layered not every factor can be mapped; and we our cultures all impact how how individual economies work.
Simply put any quantitative research in macroeconomics is really just a theory that might work if we exclude 60% of all unpredictable factors and try to calculate for the 40%. It works sometimes but classical economics works best because we accept we cant make predictions and policies so lets just not try and hope the market organises itself.
Comment removed from /Economics - unstopablex5 - Created on 07/23/18 07:16:12 UTC - permalink
Yes, I understand that there are many factors. It is exactly the same in any other scientific discipline. There are no such things as exact values in chemistry or physics, there are only accepted values. And, there are situations where the traditional math breaks down. PV=NRT starts to break down if gases start to act not ideal like at high temperatures or if their collisions become elastic. But still, PV=NRT or c=wavelength x frequency are still useful models of what the relationships are between different things are.
I must say that I being a little harsh on the person that I was responding to previously. I am aware that there are Austrians that are perfectly happy to incorporate quantitative studies into their analyses, and that they call themselves Austrians to simply that their work has caused them to favor free markets and small government. I don't really have an issue with these people.

Because your economical/political ideologies don't make you right or wrong.
If you say "as an american, i think this story is made up and trump is the greatest", but back your arguments up with credible data/sources, then your contribution adds to the discussion.
If the sources are rubbish, then you point out the flaws in OPs sources and go on from there.
This is why comments asking for sources are pretty useful, because people who are full of shit tend to not be able to provide them or just link to rubbish (the odd blog post or something).

where are the facts of the person i'm replying to
the thing is, you are making my point for me. people will just blindly believe the guy. they ought to know what his biases are.

You are assuming that I'm defending him, when I'm not. All I'm saying is that attacking his political beliefs doesn't make him wrong.
By labeling him as a conservative, all you're doing is leading people who have the same bias as him to believe him and people who lean the other way will not believe what he's saying.
In the meantime, (I think) most people here are smart enough to not take "being portuguese" as an authority on all things Portugal and expect some sort of source for his claims.
I will read (but, depending on the arguments, probably not respond) to any replies to this, as I think I've made my point clear enough and don't think there's much to be added to this discussion.

They’re not smart enough because they believed him and upvoted him even tho he provided no evidence
Why are you singling me out for this is all I’m wondering. Guy makes a claim and doesn’t support it. I say “don’t believe everything you read on Reddit, this guy is politically biased and hasn’t offered evidence”
Seems like you should be directing your posts to that islamophobic bigot

I will give it to you, I only shared my personal bias, it's quite frustrating to me to see opinions/articles saying how well Portugal is doing, it's enabling bad politics here.
And I'm not a conservative, I'm a minarchist/libertarian and yes I've criticized Islam (not Muslims), if that makes me a bigot, I don't know why, people criticize Christianity all the time and never heard anyone be called a bigot or cristianiphobic for it...

Yeah, well, if you could convince younger people to vote during every election then maybe the politicians would pay attention to their concerns. As it stands now, young voters can't be counted on.

Trickle-down economics has never been an economic theory. It is a label given to supply-side stimulus by left-wing critics and a common talking point by economically ignorant users on this site.

Now, I'm just curious, but does this have to do with the civil responsibility instilled in the greatest generation (oldest voters probably) or is it because of the age? Like will baby boomers vote as much as the greatest generation when they are aging into their mid-60s/70s?
Tldr do you vote more because you're retired or bc of the civil duty instilled your generation?

Probably a bit of everything. Also more life experience which includes decades of local to federal politicians passing bills that you disagree with.
I'm only in my 30s and have watched myself and peers go from only really "caring" about presidential or governor elections to voting to even in every local election.
I really don't think it's a pride thing but more that people begin to realize more and more that they must vote to try to keep the things they want the same or to change things they dislike and voting is the easiest way to do it.

It’s supposed to be a criticism, reflecting what actually ends up happening with such policies instead of using the nice terms created by their proponents. Not being the word supply-side economists would like to use doesn’t make it invalid.

My answer won't be liked, but I'll say it anyway. It's because civic education was purposefully altered, diluted, and largely removed from the school system... and it was done on purpose for exactly this reason.

Second.

Reddit (stylized as reddit, /ˈrɛdɪt/)[5] is an American social news aggregation, web content rating, and discussion website. Reddit's registered community members can submit content, such as text posts or direct links. Registered users can then vote submissions up or down to organize the posts and determine their position on the site's pages. The submissions with the most positive votes appear on the front page or the top of a category. Content entries are organized by areas of interest called "subreddits". The subreddit topics include news, science, gaming, movies, music, books, fitness, food, and image-sharing, among many others. The site's terms of use prohibit behaviors such as harassment, and moderating and limiting harassment has taken substantial resources.[6]
As of 2017, Reddit had 542 million monthly visitors (234 million unique users), ranking #7 most visited web-site in US and #22 in the world.[7] Across 2015, Reddit saw 82.54 billion pageviews, 73.15 million submissions, 725.85 million comments, and 6.89 billion upvotes from its users.[8]
Reddit was founded by University of Virginia roommates Steve Huffman and Alexis Ohanian in 2005. Condé Nast Publications acquired the site in October 2006. Reddit became a direct subsidiary of Condé Nast's parent company, Advance Publications, in September 2011. As of August 2012, Reddit operates as an independent entity, although Advance is still its largest shareholder.[9] Reddit is based in San Francisco, California. In October 2014, Reddit raised $50 million in a funding round led by Sam Altman and including investors Marc Andreessen, Peter Thiel, Ron Conway, Snoop Dogg, and Jared Leto.[10] Their investment saw the company valued at $500 million.[11][12]

Description Site
The site is a collection of entries submitted by its registered users, essentially a bulletin board system. The name "Reddit" is a play-on-words with the phrase "read it", i.e., "I read it on Reddit."[13] The site's content is divided into numerous categories, and 49 such categories, or "default subreddits", are visible on the front page to new users and those who browse the site without logging in to an account. As of May 2016, these include:[14] Category Subreddits Educational News, Science, Space, DataIsBeautiful, TodayILearned, WorldNews Entertainment Creepy, Documentaries, Gaming, ListenToThis, Movies, Music, NoSleep, Sports, Television, Videos Discussion-based AskReddit, AskScience, Books, ExplainLikeImFive, History, IAmA, TwoXChromosomes Humolight-hearted Funny, InternetIsBeautiful, Jokes, NotTheOnion, ShowerThoughts, TIFU, UpliftingNews Image sharing Art, Aww, EarthPorn, Gifs, MildlyInteresting, OldSchoolCool, PhotoshopBattles, Pics Self-improvement DIY, Food, GetMotivated, LifeProTips, PersonalFinance, Philosophy, WritingPrompts Technology Futurology, Gadgets Meta Announcements, Blog
Note: There are over 11,400 active subreddits[15][16][17] with a default set of 50 subreddits as of February 2016. 
When items (links or text posts) are submitted to a subreddit, the users, called "redditors",[18] can vote for or against them (upvote/downvote). Each subreddit has a front page that shows newer submissions that have been rated highly. Redditors can also post comments about the submission, and respond back and forth in a conversation-tree of comments; the comments themselves can also be upvoted and downvoted. The front page of the site itself shows a combination of the highest-rated posts out of all the subreddits a user is subscribed to.
Front-page rank – for both the general front page and for individual subreddits – is determined by the age of the submission, positive ("upvoted") to negative ("downvoted") feedback ratio and the total vote-count.[19] Dozens of submissions cycle through these front pages daily.
The site's logo and its mascot is a line drawing of an alien nicknamed "Snoo". Subreddits often use themed variants of Snoo relevant to the subject.[20]
Although most of the site functions like a bulletin board or message board, each subreddit has the option of having an associated wiki that can provide supplementary material like instructions, recommended reading, or collaboration for real-life events. Users
Registering an account with Reddit is free and does not require an email address to complete. As of June 2015, there were 36 million user accounts.[21] When logged in, Reddit users (known as redditors) have the ability to vote on submissions and comments to increase or decrease their visibility and submit links and comments. Users can also create their own subreddit on a topic of their choosing, and interested users can add it to their frontpage by subscribing to it. For example, as of May 2015, the Wikipedia subreddit – subtitled "the most interesting pages on Wikipedia" – has over 151,000 subscribers.[22] Reddit comments and submissions are occasionally abbreviated and peppered with terms that are understood within (and in many cases also outside) the Reddit community, ranging from OP (for "original poster" – the user who posted the submission being commented upon) to NSFW (for "not safe for work" – indicating the post has graphic or sexually explicit content).[23] Users earn "post karma" and "comment karma" for submitting text posts, link posts, and comments, which accumulate as point values on their user profile. "Post karma" refers to karma points received from text and link posts, while "comment karma" refers to karma points received from comments. Users may also be gifted "Reddit gold" if another user has well received the comment or post, generally due to humorous or high-quality content; this process is known as "gilding." Reddit has also created a system of points called "creddits". Reddit gold "creddits" are like gift certificates: each creddit you have allows you to give one month of Reddit gold to someone else. The points do not lead to a prize as they are meant to stand in as a badge of honor for the user among their peers, although redditors have attempted to redeem their points before.[24]
Reddit also allows submissions that do not link externally. These are called "self posts" or "text submissions". Many discussion-based subreddits allow only text-only submissions such as "AskReddit" – where users are only allowed to pose broad, discussion based questions to the community at large. Self posts previously did not accumulate karma points for the submitter, but as of July, 2016, these text-only posts generate karma.[25] Mister Splashy Pants logo used on November 27, 2007
Reddit communities occasionally coordinate Reddit-external projects such as skewing polls on other websites, such as in 2007 when Greenpeace allowed web users to decide the name of a humpback whale it was tracking. Reddit users voted en masse to name the whale "Mr. Splashy Pants", and Reddit administrators further encouraged this by changing the site logo to a whale during the voting. In December of that year, Mister Splashy Pants was announced as the winner of the competition.[26]
Within the site, redditors commemorate their "cake day" once a year, which is the anniversary of the day the user's account was first created. The "cake day" offers no special benefit, except that a small icon representing a slice of cake appears next to that user's name for 24 hours.[27] Redditors can "friend" one another, which gives a redditor quick access to posting and comments of their friend list. The commenting system and friend system, along with a certain "Reddit ethos" (called reddiquette on Reddit), lend Reddit aspects of a social networking service, though not to the extent of Facebook, Google+, and other websites aimed at providing social networking services. The Reddit community also socializes at meetups held at local parks and bars around the world,[28] and many localized subreddits for local in-person meetings exist. Subreddits
Reddit entries are organized into areas of interest called "subreddits". Originally, the front page was the "main-reddit", and other areas were "subreddits". There is now no longer a single main-reddit. Instead, there are now 50 "default subreddits" dealing with topics such as books, television, and music, and thousands of additional non-default subreddits. The default subreddits are the 50 subreddits which are first recommended to new users to select from to appear on, or via their customizable top menu bars. All new users are initially automatically "subscribed to" the 50 default subreddits, but can then customize their "subscriptions."
Any registered user who has maintained an account for 31 days or more may create a non-default subreddit.[29] There are over 11,400 active total subreddits to peruse,[15][16][17] including the default set of 50 subreddits as of February 2016. The site has a default "Front Page" which contains staff selected popular articles, and also an "All Page" which contains only the very top ranked article/ subreddits as ranked by readers themselves, and which page is accessible via an "All" link at the top of the "Front Page."
In an interview with Memeburn, Reddit GM, Martin noted that the platform's "approach is to give the community moderators or curators as much control as possible so that they can shape and cultivate the type of communities they want".[30] IAmA and AMA
One of the most popular subreddits is IAmA ("I Am A") where a user may post "AMAs" (for "Ask Me Anything"), or similarly "AMAAs" (for "Ask Me Almost/Absolutely Anything") – prompts for others to ask questions about any topic. AMAs are open to all Reddit users, and use the site's comment system for both questions and answers; it is similar to a press conference but online. This subreddit was founded in May 2009.[31] From 2013 to 2015, Victoria Taylor assisted reddit's volunteer community in presenting interviews.[32][33][34]
A number of notable individuals have participated in the IAmA subreddit, including United States President Barack Obama[35][36] (while campaigning for the 2012 election), Dave Grohl,[37] Madonna,[38] Chris Hadfield[39] (who answered questions from the International Space Station), Bill Gates,[40] Ron Paul,[41] Stephen Colbert,[42] Psy, Enya, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Rachel Maddow, Robin Williams,[43] Renée Fleming, M. Shadows, Louis C.K., Roger Federer, Larry King, Philip Zimbardo, Bill Nye,[44] Stan Lee, John Mather, David Copperfield, Michael Moore, Spike Lee, Paul Krugman, Danny Boyle, rapper J. Cole,[45] Al Gore, Roger Ebert, Michael Bolton, Gary Johnson, Lawrence Krauss, Jill Stein, Kevin Rudd, Julie Benz,[46] Amanda Palmer,[47] Tim Ferriss,[48] Gordon Ramsay,[49] Peter Dinklage,[50] Chandra Wickramasinghe,[51] Neil deGrasse Tyson,[52] and Bernie Sanders.[53] Donald Trump (during his 2016 Presidential Campaign) had an AMA on /The Donald subreddit.[54] As of April 2015, Barack Obama's AMA is the highest rated on the site;[55] the increased traffic brought down many parts of the website when the AMA occurred on August 29, 2012.[56]
Celebrities participating in IAmAs have seen both positive and negative responses. Woody Harrelson's[57] AMA was criticized after Harrelson declined to answer questions that were unrelated to the movie Rampart he was promoting.[58] In contrast, rapper Snoop Dogg attracted 1.6 million page views[59] after conducting an AMA that provided several candid responses to the community's questions.[60]
Other than Harrelson's, Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra's[61] AMA was criticized for evasiveness when she focused on promoting her upcoming album to the detriment of other questions. A particularly well received AMA of 2014 was that of Peter Dinklage,[62] best known for his role as Tyrion Lannister in the HBO drama series Game of Thrones. Redditors attribute the thread's success to the thoroughness of his responses and the fact that he stayed online much longer than he was expected to so he could spend more time with his fans. The actor departed by commenting:
This feels like being interviewed by a hundred thousand news anchors at once! But much friendlier anchors...who seem to know their material...I really appreciate everyone's enthusiasm and questions. I tried to move another engagement to make more time but it's really hard during shoots. I am going to try to answer a few more short ones now. And remember: If you see me on the street and want a photo, ask! It's just weird when your kid asks for directions.[63] 
On July 2, 2015, hundreds of subreddits, including several with over a million subscribers, were set to private by their respective moderators after Reddit's director of talent, Victoria Taylor, was dismissed.[64][65][66][67] Sources close to Reddit cited an increased focus on commercializing AMAs as the most likely reason.[68][69] /science File:American Chemical Society - What Chemists Do - Nathan Allen.webmPlay media Nathan Allen speaks about /science to the American Chemical Society Main article: /science
/science is an Internet forum on Reddit where the community of participants discuss science topics.[70] A popular feature of the forum is "Ask me Anything" (AMA) public discussions.[70] As of 2014, /science attracted 30,000–100,000 visitors per day, making it the largest community-managed science forum and an attractive place to host discussions.[70] April Fools subreddits The Button Main article: The Button (Reddit)
On April Fools' Day 2015, a social experiment was launched in the form of a subreddit called "thebutton". It featured a button and a 60-second countdown timer. User accounts created before that day were eligible to participate. A user could only ever click the button once, or opt not to click it. If a user clicked the button the timer was globally reset to 60 seconds,[71] and the user's "flair" (an icon next to the user's name) changed color. Colors were assigned based on a gradient from purple to red with purple signifying up to 60 seconds and red as low as 0 seconds. The countdown prematurely reached zero several times due to technical problems but eventually expired without further problems on June 5, 2015, after which the subreddit was archived.[72] Robin
On April Fools' Day 2016, a social experiment was launched in the form of a chat widget named Robin. After clicking the "Robin" button, an IRC-like chat window was initially opened with one other redditor and giving a certain time to pick between three options, "Grow," "Stay" and "Abandon".[73] "Grow" would join the chat with another group, "Stay" would close the group chat and create a subreddit with that group as moderators and "Abandon" would close the group chat and everyone goes back to a group of two. History Further information: Timeline of Reddit Co-founder Alexis Ohanian speaking in 2009
In June 2005,[74] Reddit was founded in Medford, Massachusetts by Steve Huffman and Alexis Ohanian, both 22-year-old graduates of the University of Virginia.[75] The team expanded to include Christopher Slowe in November 2005. Between November 2005 and January 2006 Reddit merged with Aaron Swartz's company Infogami, and Swartz became an equal owner of the resulting parent company, Not A Bug.[76][77] Condé Nast Publications, owner of Wired, acquired Reddit on October 31, 2006, and the team moved to San Francisco.[78] In January 2007, Swartz was fired.[79]
By the end of 2008, the team had grown to include Erik Martin, Jeremy Edberg,[80] David King,[81] and Mike Schiraldi.[82] In 2009, Huffman and Ohanian moved on to form Hipmunk, recruiting Slowe[83] and King[84] shortly thereafter. In May 2010, Reddit was named in Lead411's "2010 Hottest San Francisco Companies" list.[85] In July 2010, after explosive traffic growth, Reddit introduced Reddit Gold, offering new features for a price of $3.99/month or $29.99/year.[86] Reddit Gold adds a number of features to the interface, including the ability to display more comments on a page, access to the private "lounge" subreddit, and notifications whenever one's username is mentioned in a comment. It's also possible to endow comments or submissions of other users and thereby give a gold membership to them as an anonymous present.[87]
On September 6, 2011, Reddit became operationally independent of Condé Nast, now operating as a separate subsidiary of its parent company, Advance Publications.[88] On January 11, 2012, Reddit announced that it would be participating in a 12-hour sitewide blackout in protest of the Stop Online Piracy Act.[89] The blackout occurred on January 18 and coincided with the blackouts of Wikipedia and several other websites. In May 2012, Reddit joined the Internet Defense League, a group formed to organize future protests.[90] On February 14, 2013, Reddit began accepting the digital currency bitcoin for its Reddit Gold subscription service through a partnership with bitcoin payment processor Coinbase.[91]
In October 2014, Reddit announced Redditmade, a service which allowed moderators to create merchandise for their subreddits. Redditmade closed in February 2015.[92] In November 2014, Chief Executive Yishan Wong resigned and co-founder Ohanian returned as the full-time executive chairman. Ellen Pao, Reddit's business and partnerships strategist became the interim chief executive.[93] On July 10, 2015, Pao resigned and was replaced by Steve Huffman as CEO.[94][95]
In October 2015, Reddit announced a news portal called Upvoted, designed to broaden the reach of Reddit as a standalone site featuring editorial content from Reddit users.[96] In April 2016, Reddit launched a new blocking tool in an attempt to curb online harassment. The tool allows a user to hide posts and comments from selected redditors in addition to blocking private messages from those redditors.[97] The option to block a redditor is done by clicking a button in the inbox. Technology
Reddit was originally written in Common Lisp but was rewritten in Python in December 2005.[4] The reasons given for the switch were wider access to code libraries and greater development flexibility. The Python web framework that former Reddit employee Swartz developed to run the site, web.py, is now available as an open-source project.[98] On June 18, 2008, Reddit became an open source project.[99] With the exception of the anti-spam/cheating portions, all of the code and libraries written for Reddit became freely available on GitHub.[100] As of November 10, 2009, Reddit uses Pylons as its web framework.[101]
As of November 10, 2009, Reddit has decommissioned their physical servers and migrated to Amazon Web Services.[102] Reddit uses PostgreSQL as their primary datastore and is slowly moving to Apache Cassandra, a column-oriented datastore. It uses RabbitMQ for offline processing, HAProxy for load balancing and memcached for caching. In early 2009, Reddit started using jQuery.[103] On June 7, 2010, Reddit staff launched a revamped mobile interface featuring rewritten CSS, a new color scheme, and a multitude of improvements.[104]
On July 21, 2010, Reddit outsourced the Reddit search engine to Flaptor, who used its search product IndexTank.[105] As of July 12, 2012, Reddit uses Amazon CloudSearch.[106] There are several unofficial applications that use the Reddit API in the Google Play store, and F-Droid repository. Examples include: Reddit is Fun,[107] Andreddit,[108] F5, BaconReader,[109] Reddit Sync[110] and an Android tablet specific application called Reddita.[111] There are also several Windows apps used to access Reddit, including unofficial Reddit apps such as ReddHub[112] and Reddit To Go!.[113] An unofficial desktop application Reditr[114] exists that is compatible with Windows, OS X, Linux and ChromeOS.
There are several Reddit applications for iOS. These include Karma, Upvote, iReddit, iPad-specific applications such as Reddzine and Biscuit, and, until April 2016, Alien Blue.[115] In September 2014, an official mobile application for browsing AMA (Ask Me Anything) threads was released for the iOS and Android platforms under the name Ask me Anything.[116] In October 2014, Alien Blue was acquired by Reddit and became the official iOS Reddit app.[117] In April 2016, Reddit released an official application called Reddit: The Official App, which is available on Google Play and the iOS App Store, and Alien Blue was removed from the App Store in favor of the new app.[118] Demographics
According to Reddit's Audience and Demographics page, as of December 2015, 53% of redditors are male and 54% are from the United States.[119] In 2013, Pewinternet stated that 6% of all American adult Internet users have used Reddit; that males were twice as likely to be redditors as females were; and that Reddit's largest age bracket was between the ages of 18 and 29.[120] As of the end of 2016, Reddit is the only major social media platform that does not have a female majority user base.[121] Community and culture
The website is known for its open nature and diverse user community that generate its content.[122] Its demographics allows for wide-ranging subject areas, or main subreddits, that receive much attention, as well as the ability for smaller subreddits to serve more niche purposes. For example, the University of Reddit, a subreddit that exists to communally teach, emerged from the ability to enter and leave the online forum, the "classroom", at will, and classes ranging from computer science to music, to fine art theory exist.[123] The unique possibilities that subreddits provide create new opportunities for raising attention and fostering discussion across many areas. In gaining popularity in terms of unique users per day, Reddit has been a platform for many to raise publicity for a number of causes. And with that increased ability to garner attention and a large audience, users can use one of the largest communities on the Internet for new, revolutionary, and influential purposes.[124]
Its popularity has enabled users to take unprecedented advantage of such a large community. Its innovative socially ranked rating and sorting system drives a method that is useful for fulfilling certain goals of viewership or simply finding answers to interesting questions. User sentiments about the website's function and structure include feelings about the breadth and depth of the discussions on Reddit and how the site makes it easy to discover new and interesting items. Almost all of the user reviews on Alexa.com, which rates Reddit's monthly unique traffic rating 125th in the United States, mention Reddit's "good content" as a likable quality. However, others raise the negative aspects of the potential for Reddit's communities to possess a "hive mind" of sorts,[125] embodying some negative aspects of group interaction theories like crowd psychology and collective consciousness. Philanthropic efforts
Reddit has been known as the instigator of several charity projects, some short and others long-term, in order to benefit others. A selection of major events are outlined below:
In early October 2010, a story was posted on Reddit about a seven-year-old girl, Kathleen Edward, who was in the advanced stages of Huntington's disease. The girl's neighbors were taunting her and her family. Redditors banded together and gave the girl a shopping spree[126][127] at Tree Town Toys, a toy store local to the story owned by a Reddit user. In early December 2010, members of the Christianity subreddit decided to hold a fundraiser[128] and later members of the atheism subreddit decided to give some friendly competition,[129] cross-promoting[130] fundraising drives for Doctors Without Borders and World Vision's Clean Water Fund, respectively. Later, the Islam subreddit joined in, raising money for Islamic Relief. In less than a week, the three communities (as well as the Reddit community at large) raised over $50,000.[131] Most of this was raised by the atheism subreddit, though the smaller Christianity subreddit had a higher average donation amount per subscriber.[132] A similar donation drive in 2011 saw the atheism subreddit raise over $200,000 for charity.[133] Reddit started the largest Secret Santa program in the world, which is still in operation to date. For the 2010 Holiday season, 92 countries were involved in the Secret Santa program. There were 17,543 participants, and $662,907.60 was collectively spent on gift purchases and shipping costs.[134][135][136] In 2014, about 200,000 users from 188 countries participated.[137] Several celebrities have participated in the program, including Bill Gates[138] and Snoop Dogg.[139] Eventually, the Secret Santa program expanded to various other occasions through Redditgifts. Members from Reddit donated over $600,000 to DonorsChoose in support of Stephen Colbert's March to Keep Fear Alive. The donation spree broke previous records for the most money donated to a single cause by the Reddit community and resulted in an interview with Colbert on Reddit.[140] Reddit users donated $185,356 to Direct Relief for Haiti after an earthquake devastated the nation in January 2010.[141] Reddit users donated over $70,000 to the Faraja Orphanage in the first 24 hours to help secure the orphanage after intruders robbed and attacked one of the volunteers, who survived a strike to the head from a machete.[142] In October 2012, "Shitty Watercolour", a popular Redditor known for posting watercolor paintings on the website,[143][144][145] streamed live a 12-hour painting session on YouTube to raise money for charity: water, a non-profit organization which aims to provide potable drinking water in developing countries. Redditors donated a minimum of $10 to have a photo of their choice painted in a 5 by 5 centimetres (2.0 by 2.0 in) square section of large sheets of paper.[146][147] The paint-a-thon raised $2,700.[148] In February 2014, Reddit announced it would be donating 10% of its annual ad revenue to non-profits voted upon by its users.[149] Reddit continued this policy for 2015, donating $82,765 each to Electronic Frontier Foundation, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Doctors Without Borders, Erowid Center, Wikimedia Foundation, Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies, NPR, Free Software Foundation, Freedom From Religion Foundation, and Tor Project.[150] In response to the 2015 Nepal earthquake, redditors raised more than $145,000 for Direct Relief and more than $110,000 for MAP International.[151] 
Commercial activity
In February 2013, Betabeat published a post that recognized the influx of multi-national corporations like Costco, Taco Bell, Subaru, and McDonald's posting branded content on Reddit that was made to appear as if it was original content from legitimate Reddit users.[152] Reddit's former Director of Communications noted that while a large number of Chief Marketing Officers want to "infiltrate the reddit community on behalf of their brand," she emphasized that "self-promotion is frowned upon" and the site is "100 percent organic."[153][154][155][156] She recommended that advertisers design promotions that "spark conversations and feedback."[157] She recommended that businesses use AMAs to get attention for public figures but cautioned "It is important to approach AMAs carefully and be aware that this may not be a fit for every project or client."[158] Nissan ran a successful Branded content promotion offering users free gifts to publicize a new car,[159][160] though the company was later ridiculed for suspected astroturfing when the CEO only answered puff piece questions on the site.[161][162] Taylor described these situations as "high risk" noting "We try hard to educate people that they have to treat questions that may seem irreverent or out of left field the same as they would questions about the specific project they are promoting."[163]
Reddit's users are more privacy-conscious than on other websites, using tools like AdBlock and proxies,[164] and they hate "feeling manipulated by brands" but respond well to "content that begs for intelligent viewers and participants."[165] Lauren Orsini writes in ReadWrite that "Reddit's huge community is the perfect hype machine for promoting a new movie, a product release, or a lagging political campaign" but "very specific set of etiquette. Redditors don't want to advertise for you, they want to talk to you."[166] Journalists have used the site as a basis for stories, though they are advised by the site's policies to respect that "reddit's communities belong to their members" and to seek proper attribution for people's contributions.[167]
Reddit announced that they would begin using VigLink to redirect affiliate links in June 2016.[168] Reddit effect Main article: Slashdot effect
Also known as the "Slashdot effect", the Reddit effect occurs when a smaller website has a high influx of traffic after being linked to on Reddit.[169] It is also called the "Reddit Hug of Death" among the website's users. Because Reddit is such a large site, the traffic is immense and can easily crash smaller sites. In order for users to see crashed websites, several Reddit bots have been created that take a snapshot of the website before large amounts of traffic flood the affected website. "Restoring Truthiness" campaign
As a response to Glenn Beck's August 28, 2010, Restoring Honor rally (heavily promoted by him in his Fox News broadcasts during the summer), in September 2010 Reddit users started a movement to persuade satirist Stephen Colbert to have a counter-rally in Washington, D.C.[170] The movement, which came to be called "Restoring Truthiness", was started by user mrsammercer, in a post where he described waking up from a dream in which Stephen Colbert was holding a satirical rally in D.C.[171] He writes, "This would be the high water mark of American satire. Half a million people pretending to suspend all rational thought in unison. Perfect harmony. It'll feel like San Francisco in the late 60s, only we won't be able to get any acid."
The idea resonated with the Reddit community, which launched a campaign to bring the event to life. Over $600,000[172] was raised for charity to gain the attention of Colbert. The campaign was mentioned on-air several times, and when the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear was held in Washington, D.C. on October 30, 2010, thousands of redditors made the journey.[173]
During a post-rally press conference, Reddit co-founder Ohanian asked, "What role did the Internet campaign play in convincing you to hold this rally?" Jon Stewart responded by saying that, though it was a very nice gesture, the two had already thought of the idea prior and the deposit on using the National Mall was already paid during the summer, so it acted mostly as a "validation of what we were thinking about attempting".[174] In a message to the Reddit community, Colbert later added, "I have no doubt that your efforts to organize and the joy you clearly brought to your part of the story contributed greatly to the turnout and success."[175] Controversies See also: Controversial Reddit communities and Michael Brutsch
The website generally lets moderators on individual subreddits make editorial decisions about what content to allow, and has a history of permitting some subreddits dedicated to controversial content.[176] Many of the default pages are highly moderated, with the "science" subreddit banning climate change denialism,[177] and the "news" subreddit banning opinion pieces and columns.[178] Reddit has changed its site-wide editorial policies several times, sometimes in reaction to controversies.[179][180][181][182] Reddit has had a history of giving a platform to objectionable but legal content, and in 2011, news media covered the way that jailbait was being shared on the site before the site changed their policies to explicitly ban "suggestive or sexual content featuring minors".[183] Following some controversial incidents of Internet vigilantism, Reddit introduced a strict rule against the publication of non-public personally-identifying information via the site (colloquially known as doxxing). Those who break the rule are subject to a site-wide ban, and their posts and even entire communities may be removed for breaking the rule. 2010
On December 16, 2010, a redditor named Matt posted a link describing how he has donated a kidney, and included a JustGive link to encourage users to give donations to the American Cancer Society.[184] After an initially positive reaction, Reddit users began to become suspicious of Matt's intentions, and suggested that he was keeping the donations for himself. Users telephoned his home and he received death threats. Matt eventually proved that he was genuine by uploading his doctor's records.[185] 2011
On October 18, 2011, an IT manager submitted a post to the subreddit "gameswap" offering Redditors to trade one of 312 codes he had been given for the game Deus Ex: Human Revolution.[186] A group of users obtained his personal details, and began to blackmail him for the codes.[187] The Monday after uploading the post, he received 138 threatening phone calls both at home and at his job, and by the end of the day he had been fired.[188] 2013
Following the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings, Reddit faced criticism after users wrongly identified a number of people as suspects.[189] Notable among misidentified bombing suspects was Sunil Tripathi, a student reported missing before the bombings took place. A body reported to be Sunil's was found in Providence River in Rhode Island on April 25, 2013, according to Rhode Island Health Department. The cause of death was not immediately known, but authorities said they did not suspect foul play.[190] The family later confirmed Tripathi's death was a result of suicide.[191] Reddit general manager Martin later issued an apology for this behavior, criticizing the "online witch hunts and dangerous speculation" that took place on the website.[192] The incident was later referenced in the season 5 episode of the CBS TV series The Good Wife titled "Whack-a-Mole,"[193] as well as The Newsroom.[194][195]
In late October 2013, the moderators of the "politics" subreddit banned a large group of websites. Many were left wing opinion websites, such as Mother Jones, The Huffington Post, Salon, Alternet, Rawstory, The Daily Kos, Truthout, Media Matters, and ThinkProgress as well as some popular progressive blog sites, such as Democratic Underground and Crooks and Liars. They also banned a number of right wing sites—Drudge Report, Breitbart, The Daily Caller, Dailypaul, Power Line, and Reason. Salon reported that "the section's moderators explained in a post on Tuesday, the goal is 'to reduce the number of blogspam submissions and sensationalist titles.' The purge, the moderators explained, is also aimed at sites that provide lots of "bad journalism."[196] The December 2013 list of banned websites has been modified since late October, and sites with original content, such as Mother Jones and The Huffington Post, are allowed.[197] Moderators also banned RT, which moderators stated was due to vote manipulation and spam, though one moderator stated that he wanted RT banned because it is Kremlin backed.[198][199] 2014
In August 2014, photos from the 2014 celebrity photo hack were widely disseminated across the site.[200][201] A dedicated subreddit, "TheFappening," was created for this purpose,[202] and contained links to most if not all of the criminally obtained explicit images.[203][204][205][206][207] Some images of Liz Lee and McKayla Maroney from the leak were identified by redditors and outside commentators as child pornography because the photos were taken when the women were underage.[208] The subreddit was banned on September 6.[209] The scandal led to wider criticisms concerning the website's administration from The Verge and The Daily Dot.[210][211]
Also in August 2014, moderators and administrators censored a sizeable amount of content related to the GamerGate controversy; one thread in the "gaming" subreddit had almost 24,000 comments removed.[212] Multiple subreddits were deleted by administrators for voicing opinions on Zoe Quinn, Anita Sarkeesian, Brianna Wu and similarly important GamerGate controversy figures.[213] The subreddit "ZoeQuinnDiscussion" was banned for violating the Reddit rules.[214] Administrators defended this response when questioned, blaming 4chan for raiding threads and causing harm. This was debated by some redditors.[215] An anonymous subreddit moderator claims he was removed for leaking correspondence between himself and Zoe Quinn.[216] On December 18, 2014, Reddit took the unusual step of banning a subreddit, "SonyGOP," that was being used to distribute hacked Sony files.[217] 2015
After Ellen Pao became CEO, she was initially a target of criticism by users who objected to her lawsuit.[218] Later on June 10, 2015, Reddit shut down the 150,000-subscriber "fatpeoplehate" subreddit and four others citing issues related to harassment.[219] This move was seen as very controversial; some commenters said that the bans went too far, while others said that the bans did not go far enough.[220] One of the latter complaints concerned a subreddit that was "expressing support" for the perpetrator of the Charleston church shooting.[221] Responding to the accusations of "skewed enforcement", Reddit reaffirmed their commitment to free expression and stated that "There are some subreddits with very little viewership that get highlighted repeatedly for their content, but those are a tiny fraction of the content on the site."
On July 2, 2015, Reddit began experiencing a series of blackouts as moderators set popular subreddit communities to private, in an event dubbed "AMAgeddon," a portmanteau of AMA ("ask me anything") and Armageddon. This was done in protest of the recent firing of Victoria Taylor, an administrator who helped organize citizen-led interviews with famous people on the popular "Ask me Anything" subreddit. Organizers of the blackout also expressed resentment about the recent severance of the communication between Reddit and the moderators of subreddits.[222] The blackout intensified on July 3 when former community manager David Croach gave an AMA about being fired. Before deleting his posts, he stated that Ellen Pao dismissed him with one year of health coverage when he had cancer and did not recover quickly enough.[223][224] Following this, a Change.org petition to remove Pao as CEO of Reddit Inc. reached over 200,000 signatures.[225][226][227] Pao posted a response on July 3 as well as an extended version of it on July 6 in which she apologized for bad communication and not delivering on promises. She also apologized on behalf of the other administrators and noted that problems already existed over the past several years.[228][229][230][231] On July 10, Pao resigned as CEO and was replaced by former CEO and co-founder Steve Huffman.[94][232]
