Leaked modmail reveals how Reddit admins coerce mods into obedience
The difference between Reddit and other social media sites is that Reddit acts indirectly. They let /r/ShitRedditSays vote-brigade and vandalize across the site, but never stop them because it is convenient for Reddit to appear as a safe hugbox without evil hate, shitlording, etc. Then behind the scenes, as we see above, admins make threats to mods: do what we want or... you know... something might go wrong for you.
There is not a more hypocritical internet community than Reddit.
