Reddit russian dating website arab professionals dating
Redditor rsocfan posted on the forum to say that he was the one responsible for the site getting blocked.“In Russia, there is a law which allow Roskomnadzor, Russian censorship agency, to block any website without court ruling,” he wrote “Two years ago I tested how RKN [Roskomnadzor] react to abuse on popular websites/crazy abuses.
One of that websites was Reddit.“BTW, this post is a guide for indoor growing Psilocybe mushrooms in Russian.
I'm not sure if any people saw this before blocking, but if you are here and you can read Russian, now you know to grow some shrooms, thanks to RKN.”The post was barely read for most of the two years that it sat on the site, receiving only one upvote and one comment.
In another post, rsocfan pointed out that the message was getting far more attention after the block than it ever had before.
With one-on-one, private conversations, often between strangers, online dating can be awkward.Discussions also focused on strategies to take advantage of how the dating sites are set up.Researchers say some of the techniques might actually enable anti-social behavior, a common problem on dating sites in general.But the site didn’t respond despite a blog post saying: "We assume that the website is simply understaffed during the summer holidays, but this is no excuse to risk [losing] its entire audience [in Russia]."Reddit now joins a long list of sites that must be banned in the country, which includes the website of the Jehovah’s Witnesses and political opponents, as well as those posting extreme pornography and extremism.Activists have posted a full list of the sites online.
Reddit, a popular crowdsourced content platform, has two thriving subreddit groups, one for each dating service, which collectively have more than 95,000 members and 1,400 new posts a day at any given point.
