FBI seized r/Technology on Reddit
Reddit has been on overdrive for April Fools
When you load up r/Technology, the warning appears that the FBI seized the subreddit. Well, as you can guess, this is not so accurate. The FBI haven’t seized r/Technology. It’s just one of the many pranks people have been playing on reddit today.
On other news, r/The_Donald now support Bernie Sanders for President of the United States.
Another one on the list of pranks, although not confirmed, is the banning of /u/LeafEator from r/DotA2. LeafEator in his statement to the r/DotA2 flagged up the problems he and the other moderators had: “Chris I got to meet at a bar one night. We shared drinks and talked about how miserable everyone on reddit is, and I really thought we bonded. He however did not let me touch his hair.”
I guess this’ll make some people happy but I won’t be returning to the reddit team. Was let go. We’ll still have the memes from last year =[

It isn’t confirmed, but given the outrage, it seems like an elaborate April Fools that a lot of people have fallen for. I guess we will find out later today or tomorrow. Judge for yourself: Moderator Post, LeafEators Post.
So here we are, browsing reddit, suspicious of every post. As /u/prentle puts it:
