Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You

IBTimes Sings to Reddit. Confirming What Many Have Used the Site for for Many Years. An Echo Chamber to Voice Drug Addiction Sympathies.

IBTimes bee-lining straight for the meat. Pandering to both Reddit’s pot community and ill informed russophobes.  The article is about Roskomnadzor petitioning Reddit to remove a thread discussing how to grow drugs.

This is reasonable in my opinion. If a government wishes to work diligently to combat the spread of drug addiction and to mitigate the damage coming from online communities that foster drug use, then it is well within its right to do so.

The exact opposite of this would be to push the use, and the production, and distribution of drugs, which I guess is what IBTimes is saying it wants to happen by framing the context of the article as a “Draconian,” “Russian” method of stifling free speech. Something that IBTimes knows that Redditors are accutely sensitive to.

Still it’s pretty funny. The reaction from Reddit was very predictable.  It almost makes the IBTimes article a cheap shot, and therefore unworthy of many of the other authors at IBTimes.

The only thing missing from the article is a big “CLICK ME” picture to bait Redditors for comments.
