In separate news, I noticed this morning that I can't post or comment on /r/atheism in Reddit, though my status on other subreddits is
unaffected. I haven't seen an explanation, but my best guess is that I pointed out one time too many that religious people have First Amendment rights too.

Just as mastodon isn't centralized, Reddit subs are 'owned' by small groups of 'mods'. Mods aren't Reddit employees; they are the subs creators, and people they delegate modhood to.
They have arbitrary powers to block people and topics, and very little accountability. For example, I'm robo-banned from a couple groups
because I commented in another sub that those subs opposed. That
I was posting criticism instead of support didn't matter.
Most subs are fine, and the ease of creating new subs means that blocks
can't really suppress a viewpoint.
