Reddit CEO: Racist slurs invited here!

Reddit CEO Says Racist Speech Is Allowed on the Site

        The most popular reply to Huffman's comment read, in part,
        "How do you respond to the idea that hate speech leads to
        genocide, and that scholars and genocide watch groups insist
        that not all speech is credible enough to be warranted? ...
        Not all speech is 'valuable discourse,' and by letting it
        exist on your platform you are condoning its existence and
        assisting its propagation."

Making him and the firms that host Reddit complicit in any violence or
other damage that is instigated or incited by such speech.
