I was recently banned from the subreddit, r/Robinhood for making a comment about Robinhood’s shady practices. I quoted their own rule, “Don’t be you”, calling them hypocrites, and received a 7 day ban from Reddit the following day.

How can we draw attention to Reddit supporting a subreddit whose very rules promote and protect intolerance and harassment?

I encourage you to message Reddit directly and report this community.

    So, you went to a subreddit dedicated to information about a specific website, and insulted everyone who uses that website.

    What were you expecting? For the whole sub to stand up and applaud, and cancel their Robinhood accounts?

    I’m not saying your statement is wrong, but your comment was toxic and unnecessary.

      You must have missed the details in my post. My issue with Reddit is not the ban from the sub. Totally expected when I “kicked the hornet nest.”

      My issue is that Reddit as a whole banned me for allegedly violating a rule that is being clearly violated within the rules of a subreddit. The hypocrisy is the issue.
