image for Reddit bans COVID misinformation subreddit NoNewNormal

Reddit on Wednesday banned an active COVID misinformation subreddit.

An admin post in r/RedditSecurity confirmed that the subreddit r/NoNewNormal, which was full of COVID misinformation, was banned.

NoNewNormal was quarantined on Aug. 11, but according to the admin, users on the subreddit continued their rule-breaking behavior.

It called for Reddit to take action against the COVID misinformation on the platform.

"We have gone private in protest of Reddit's inaction against Covid misinformation," read the message on the Pokemon Go subreddit before the banning.

NoNewNormal has been a point of focus of Reddit's COVID misinformation problem and had evaded banning until.

Since its banning, NoNewNormal users are already spreading links to a separate site dedicated to keeping the COVID misinformation flowing. »
