Engadget: Unpaid and abused: Moderators speak out against Reddit . “Somewhere out there, a man wants to rape Emily. She knows this because he was painfully clear in typing out his threat. In fact, he’s just one of a group of people who wish her harm.
For the past four years, Emily has volunteered to moderate the content on several sizable subreddits — large online discussion forums — including r/news, with 16.3 million subscribers, and r/london, with 114,000 subscribers. But Reddit users don’t like to be moderated.”
