Part of the catalyst for this new sub came about by the content banning of e-sports journalist Richard Lewis on the main subreddit, who wrote articles critical of the studio and the subreddit’s moderators as well as covered a third-party app that was considered controversial.
“[The moderators] have made it quite clear they want to exert pressure on my employers by denying them traffic and therefore trying to make me a ‘toxic asset,'” Lewis posted on Facebook.
The League of Legends subreddit mods claim that Lewis had been vote brigading and engaging in harassment, which Lewis denies.[Source: Riot Free Reddit, Reddit, The Daily Dot #1, #2, #3, Facebook. Thanks to Sorenthaz for the tip!]
