    There are places in reddit where you can view porn or download roms, so why can it be mentioned or linked>

    Google hosts more porn than reddit. You want to ban google here?

    What about the roms? You can't mention the actual names of rom sites?

    Reddit is not a porn or warez site. It's a discussion network. Links to reddit are fine, just not links to porn/warez subreddits.

    The way reddit works means you would have to go searching for it. If someone linked or named a specific thread or subreddit then they might get slapped.

    This compared to something like "go to suprnova" (one of the original popular all purpose torrent sites, long since defunct) where there is no real scope for some leeway.

    Did you really have to ask this question?
