The Lunduke Journal banned from Reddit

We here at The Lunduke Journal (and we use “we” in the royal sense of the word) don’t use Reddit very often — having posted to the site only a handful of times over the last year.

This week, the satire piece “C programming language removes racist semicolon” was posted to a humor subreddit. Because… why not?

Shortly thereafter, this occurred:

That’s right. The Lunduke Journal is officially banned from Reddit.

It’s ok. I get it. Satire and comedy articles on computer programming topics can be frightening.

I mean, heck. Nerdy satire is literally violence.

What Reddit is doing isn’t really deplatforming or censorship. No, sir! Reddit is practically saving lives here.

This is one of the reasons that The Lunduke Journal does not rely on websites like Reddit, Twitter, YouTube, or Facebook. At any moment you can be banned for making a family friendly, silly comment — or stating a simple piece of common sense.,, and are always the best ways to enjoy the family friendly, nerdy happiness and common sense of The Lunduke Journal.
