Reddit Community Mobilizes to Find Woman’s Lost Dog

Reddit bills itself as “the front page of the Internet,” but over time, a lot of people have come to think of it more as the open sewer of the Internet. Last year, Reddit got some of its biggest coverage ever when Gawker exposed Michael Brutsch as “Violentacrez,” an incredibly active moderator who was best known for running the “Jailbait” subreddit, which consisted of pictures of scantily clad teenage (and pre-teen) girls. He also created or moderated sections called “Rapebait,” “beatingwomen,” and “Jewmerica.” Although Brutsch was especially prolific, Reddit does have a reputation for high troll content, including misogyny and racism.

Which is to say, it is always good to see some news about Reddit that has nothing to do with sleaze.
