Reddit ‘Shadowbans’ Posts With Openload URLs

Postby MrFredPFL » Sat Feb 02, 2019 11:19 pm

Story :

Openload is the largest file-hosting site on the Internet, generating more traffic than popular sites such as Hulu or HBO Go.

While the site has plenty of legal uses it is also a thorn in the side of many copyright holders, due to the frequent appearance of pirated content.

This pirate stigma recently resulted in a mention on the US Government’s list of “Notorious Markets”.

In addition, it appears that the popular social discussion platform Reddit has taken action as well. The site is actively shadowbanning posts that include Openload links.
