Sami mentioned something about being "a gangster". Based on what you know/have heard, was he likely joking around, or is he possibly involved in shady mafia business?

Also, how on Earth have they managed to stay afloat for so long?

Do you believe racism played a role in your conviction?

Do you believe the same false conviction could happen to somebody in the present day, or have technology and/or legal procedures changed enough to prevent that?

If it still is, what do you feel should be changed in society to prevent a recurrence of your tragedy?

IMO, one of the major failings on Reddit is the moderator system. The top mod is, for all intents and purposes, king. He can close a subreddit visited by the President and Bill Gates on a whim, he can make the default news or political subreddits omit any news he doesn't deem worthy or relevant (or which goes against his political bias), he can do absolutely nothing while a gigantic subreddit withers away (so long as he merely logs in once every 2 months), and he can make a once-friendly subreddit a hive of hate and bigotry.

The various solutions I've seen proposed (users voting for moderators, all the moderators voting on policies, etc) have their own failings , but are there any discussions about revamping the mod hierachy/power system, particularly for default or large subreddits?
