Petition to Remove Reddit hats and any association with Reddit

I simply can not believe Valve can, in good conscience, support and associate with a known haven of pedophiles and deviants of the sickest type. A site which has on numerous occasions defended known pedophiles.

even despite the recent "ban" numerous subreddits continue to function to harbor such foulness. I would direct your attention to one called picsofdeadkids. That is something TF2 should never endorse, even indirectly.

Also, on the topic of the "ban" let us look at why this completely ineffective and not really enforced change was made.

Quote:
We understand that this might make some of you worried about the slippery slope from banning one specific type of content to banning other types of content. We're concerned about that too, and do not make this policy change lightly or without careful deliberation. We will tirelessly defend the right to freely share information on reddit in any way we can, even if it is offensive or discusses something that may be illegal. However, child pornography is a toxic and unique case for Internet communities, and we're protecting reddit's ability to operate by removing this threat. We remain committed to protecting reddit as an open platform.
Not because it is wrong, immoral, or disgusting, just because they think the site could potentially be taken down if nothing was done. Do we really want TF2 endorsing this site? Don't we have (the host of /b/) censored on these forums for a reason?

I hope I am not the only person sickened by this, and hope Valve quickly rethinks its decision.

Furthermore I urge everyone to email the tf2 team. Maybe we can actually accomplish something for once.

Or maybe clarify that they're just supporting the /tf2/ subreddit.

Because I am pretty sure there's not a lot of pedophilia going on there.

Look, I sympathize with you, Alen. I really do.

But the best thing you can do in this case is just email the TF2 team. No amount of petitioning on these forums has ever, or will ever work; the team simply doesn't read the forums enough for that.

We are allowed to ask for Valve to remove pinion but we can't ask for them to not endorse a site which contains content we find morally reprehensible?

If I'm going to be banned from SPUF, it might as well be over the first serious post I've ever made.

I thought he was banned for saying that he possessed multiple accounts?

Why did Valve think this was a good idea? Anyone with half a brain could tell that this would provoke drama within the TF2 community.

That, and Reddit is an absolutely terrible place.

Then why was the thread locked and deleted? The thread was about the reddit petition.

Just because the mods are scummy doesn't mean all of the community is.

Petitions may go somewhere.

But I don't think petitions for removing anything are going to go anywhere. Any drama that this is causing now would be 5 or so times worse if a change was made.

Although eventually, we'll all get over all drama.
