This subreddit should focus on data, issues, solutions, or strategies that could be reasonably addressed or implemented by users and moderators, not admins.
one of the most malevolent, cruel, coldhearted online communities you'll ever find. you think [slur]town was bad? That subreddit, if you pick up on the dog-whistles (and many don't even bother with that-- say want you want about Stormfront, at least it bans "n[slur]"), will reveal itself to you as Reddit's number one hub for the web's most hardened Nazis, Klansmen, Fascists, and Gamergaters.
Behavior counter to reddit's originally expressed ideals

"A bastion of free speech on the World Wide Web ... the digital form of political pamplets."
"today's headlines -- chosen by readers, not editors"
