Redditors declare war on Gawker Media

Stories from Gawker Media have been banned in at least three major Reddit forums after the community discovered that the identity of one its most controversial users may be revealed in an upcoming Gawker profile.

The popular media organization has had its stories banned in subreddits like r/enterainment, r/gaming, and r/politics, a default group for non-registered users. These three forums have about four million readers combined.

The banning comes after news broke Wednesday that Gawker writer Adrian Chen had been digging into the background of Reddit user violentacrez for an in-depth profile.
