Reddit Responds After Being Threatened, Banned and Unbanned by the Russian Government

The entire site was blacklisted and banned yesterday for a number of users in Russia following a clear threat made by Russia’s FCC, the Roskomnadzor, to remove a thread about growing psychedelic mushrooms that had been posted on the site.

 

Roskomnadzor’s post on Vkontakte (basically the Russian Facebook) read:

Those who have contacts with the [Reddit] administration – ask them to check their email for messages from Roskomnadzor, otherwise… a number of operators may block the entire site.
