Huffman's post was put on Reddit around five o'clock EST. In it, he detailed updated policies for Reddit. "The overwhelming majority of content on reddit comes from wonderful, creative, funny, smart, and silly communities," he wrote. "That is what makes reddit great.
"There is also a dark side, communities whose purpose is reprehensible, and we don’t have any obligation to support them," he continued, however. "And we also believe that some communities currently on the platform should not be here at all."
The problem with that is Ohanian said the literal opposite of Huffman in a 2012 interview with Forbes. The double-speak was caught by user theEnzyteGuy.
According to the Forbes interview, when asked what the Founding Fathers would think of Reddit, Ohanian responded, "A bastion of free speech on the World Wide Web? I bet they would like it."
This is likely to further the conflict with the Administrators of Reddit and its userbase, whose relationship has been strained over the last few months with controversial decisions made by the site's leadership.
