what if it were in a wikipedia article, should we ban that whole domain?
Kemitche: and articles that link that articles that link to jezebel? The moderators do not appear offended by the article being critical --they’re appear to be only worried about the personal info link.In 2012, Omegle added a special new feature to the text and video modes, the option to input "interest" tags.Adding interests lets users be paired with a stranger who has something in common with the user.However, the monitoring is only partially effective.A leaked chat log between Reddit employees and volunteer moderators over whether or not to ban links to Jezebel and Gawker because of articles the sites published that gave out Reddit users’ personal information reveals Reddit’s official hands-off approach to handling censorship.A user can input as many interests as he or she would like, and if no available match is found, the user is paired with a completely random stranger instead.In 2013, an unmonitored version of the video chat mode was opened, leaving the original content moderator-regulated video section open to anyone aged thirteen and up as long as the content of his or her video stream is clean.The spy can quit at any time without ending the chat for the two other strangers.If a user chooses to discuss a question instead, as in normal text mode, the user is paired with another stranger and can discuss the question the spy has asked up until the point the other stranger decides to disconnect and/or move on to another question.Quick backstory: This Wednesday, Jezebel ran an article about a controversial subreddit called Creepshots where men posted pervy photos of women in public and the anonymous Tumblr, "Predditors" (now password-only), which listed real names of those men.The same day, it came to light on Reddit that a powerful moderator involved in Creepshots's real name would be revealed in an upcoming profile on Gawker.
