    The older redditors may remember that he was moderator of some VERY dodgy subreddits back in the day and tried to cover it up. We remember, it will come back to haunt him at some point.

        It’s difficult to prove these days as most of that era was wiped and the internet archive doesnt have much from that time.

        There are some people saying it was possible to add arbitrary users as mods for a while, some that say he made himself a mod as part of cleaning up that subreddit. but a lot of people also say he was a mod for a very long time.

      Do you mind me asking which dodgy subs? I’m mostly familiar with his election 2016 (non)work and half assed too little too late follow up. I was on Reddit from 2010 or 2011, but I really don’t recall knowing anything about senior leadership until 2014 or 2015
