Reddit back online in Russia after wiped controversial topic
Recently we wrote that Russian media regulator Roskomnadzor, block the access to Reddit territory of the Russian Federation for theme containing instructions for growing hallucinogenic mushrooms. This site uses HTTPS, which does not allow censorship of individual article of content and because of that was total ban on Reddit.
Several days after the incident, the team from Reddit comply with the Russian authorities and block the access to the subject in Russia, shortly after which access to the site was restored. The author of the topic and many others do not approve the decision of Reddit, claiming that this is an easy way out and violates freedom of speech. We should not forget that the site continues to suffer from serious problems of so that the loss of customers due to strict Russian media policy is probably not something the team would risk now.
