    Reddit has been criticized for allowing objectionable content to remain online in various forums. A new policy shift is designed to shield people from having personal imagery posted to the site.

    The wildly popular social news and networking site Reddit is updating its privacy policy to protect victims of so-called "involuntary pornography."

    The change is set to take effect in two weeks and will prohibit users from posting to Reddit any photograph, video or digital image that contains sexually explicit content involving a person that has not approved publication. The company said "violent personalized images" will also be removed from the site.

    "Reddit is committed to your privacy," the company's updated privacy policy reads. "If you believe that someone has submitted, without your permission, to Reddit a link to a photograph, video or digital image of you in a state of nudity or engaged in any act of sexual conduct, please contact us, and we will expedite its removal as quickly as possible. Reddit prohibits the posting of such content without consent."

    The only reason I signed up on facebook was to see Doug Stanhope's girlfriend naked after he was on the show. She wasn't even that great.

    It's one of the biggest communities on the net. There's a forum for every topic called "subreddits". Pretty brilliant concept. There are a lot of highly educated people on there, and cool intellectual stuff gets upvoted. Sometimes celebrities or interesting people post on there doing an "AMA" (ask me anything). Guys from NASA have been on there, Charlie Sheen, the guys from Metallica, Bill Gates, Will Ferrell, Snoop Dogg, and Barack Obama. Also the guy who made the "two girls one cup" video, who explained how the video suddenly blew up and what kinda trouble they got into.

    Worth it to sign up. There's a topic for everything on there.

    I thought Dawgshed was the biggest community on the net? I think I'll try to live without it.

    Shiv is currently flooding reddit with complaints about involuntary postings of james' nudes as though they are shiv. James, however, says those photos are not of him.

    Reddit is also a good source for HD NBA streams. As long as they don't start cracking down on that, I'm good.

    This is that ugly BBS forum site with the barely readable nested text comment system, right? Fuck 'em. Even their subforums (oh, sorry, subREDDITS) on subjects I like are disappointing. It seems the posters are fairly stupid, or at least uninformed.
