Submission + - Reddit Now Banning Quality News Sites Such as The Atlantic and Business Week

Kindgott writes: "Sites where users can promote stories eventually have to come to terms with the possibility of users gaming the system in order to promote their own sites — whether they generate revenue or contain malicious content.

With that in mind, Reddit implementeda domain blocking system, initially targeting URL shortening services.

Today, Reddit user violentacrez recently posted that "entire high-quality" domains such as The Atlantic and Business Week are subject to a blanket ban.

In light of previous behavior by sites, some users welcome the change, while others are condemn it as censorship.

A subreddit has been created in order to keep track of confirmed blocked domains."
