女大学生的沙龙: Reddit bans pro-Trump forum 'The Donald' in crackdown on hate speech

The decision comes amid growing moves by social media companies to moderate the President's online messages

The social media message board Reddit has banned a forum about Donald Trump as part of a crackdown on racism and hate speech.?

The site said it was updating its moderation policy to eliminate abuse. It is banning 2,000 forums, most of which it says are inactive. 200 have more than 10 daily users.?

As well as the highly popular Donald Trump forum, these?popular threads also include a page dedicated to the left-wing podcast Chapo Trap House.

Reddit has been criticised?for years over the content of the forum?r/The_Donald, which has frequently included racism, anti-Semitism and conspiracy theories. The community had more than 790,000 subscribers and was a popular source of pro-Trump memes that often spread onto other social networks and were in some cases tweeted by the President.

"We are committed to working with you to combat the bad actors, abusive behaviors, and toxic communities that undermine our mission and get in the way of the creativity, discussions, and communities that bring us all to Reddit in the first place," the site said in a message to users.?

In 2018 co-founder and chief executive Steve Huffman?said in a user Q&A that racism and "open slurs" were not against Reddit's policies.

On Monday the company said there had been confusion over whether hate speech was "allowed or even protected on Reddit".?

In response it updated its site rules, adding a clause which "explicitly states that communities and users that promote hate based on identity or vulnerability will be banned".

The decision comes as other US social networks weigh their handling of Mr Trump, a prolific social media user who often uploads posts which contain falsehoods or threats.

Twitter came under fire from the president for adding a fact-check to one of his tweets and hiding another last month.

While opponents argue that Mr Trump is allowed to post things that would see other users banned, his supporters argue that efforts to moderate him are biased and unfair, and motivated by Silicon Valley's liberal politics.

The video live-streaming site Twitch temporarily banned the president on Monday, citing "hateful content" shared on a stream, which it said violated its policies.?

Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, who resigned his board seat earlier this month asking that it instead be given to a black candidate amid the protests about racism and police brutality sweeping America, tweeted: "Updated policy against hate + violence -- at last!"

Former chief executive Ellen Pao, who was forced out after attempting to crack down on harassment and abuse on the site and has repeatedly criticised its new management for failing to tackle the issue, tweeted: "Finally".?
