I worked for Condé Nast as a _ until . I can reveal that sometime last year, reddit got a National Security Letter (NSL) from FBI, requesting access to the reddit logs. Much to my dismay, instead of enlisting ACLU help, the reddit admins promptly handed over all the data. I left reddit in disgust, but due to the gag order that comes with the NSL, I was not able to tell you what happened.
I no longer can keep this a secret. So many of you may have become targets of FBI surveillance because of reddit admins' actions. If FBI identify my identity, I could be in serious legal trouble. But I still want all of you to know that instead of protecting your privacy, the reddit guys just handed your data over to the authorities.
The Internet Archive successfully fought off an NSL with the help of ACLU and EFF. reddit could've done the same if they wanted to.
I urge you to think twice before posting on reddit. The owners of reddit make money out of your submissions, but don't even have the decency to protect you from the long tentacles of the Patriot Act.
