Reddit is a multimedia aggregate site, where users promote or inhibit the flow of information through "upvoting" submissions they like and "downvoting" submissions they disagree with. Reddit is becoming one of the defining cultural representations of the decade, representing the democratization of culture and promoting the free flow of knowledge across the net.
Gaming the system
Reddit is suceptible to being gamed, and during 2009, it was believed that the infamous Digg Patriots were actively engaging in censorship on the website by collectively banning liberal users and hiding liberal posts while promoting conservative posters. These actions were revealed in 2010, after a year long investigation leading to most of these users being banned from the service. The mainstream Reddit community is overwhelmingly liberal, and conservative values are "downvoted", especially in the "Politics" subsection of the site.
