A popular website for discussing and posting about all manners of things online, Reddit got on the list this year due to its alleged refusal to monitor and ban sexually exploitative content.

NCOSE claims that Reddit “has become a hub of exploitation where sex buyers and other sexual predators meet to exchange non-consensually shared intimate images, hardcore pornography, and to give advice to each other about how to use and abuse.”

“Prostitution, sex trafficking, and child sexual abuse material is also easily found on the site because Reddit refuses to institute strong policies and, despite being worth $6 billion, refuses to spend money on moderators and technology solutions to reduce sexual abuse and exploitation material surfacing on their site,” explained NCOSE.

"Reddit does prohibit sexual or suggestive content involving minors, but it only sometimes enforce the rule by threatening to ban Reddit communities, adding restrictions, or removing content. They do not ban members engaged in posting such material or stop them from signing up for another account.”
