Too Long; Didn't Read
Collin Williams, a moderator for r/RoastMe, a comedic insult forum with 2.3 million members, was surprised by something in his comment history. When a moderator removes a post, the post is unlisted from the subreddit’s main feed. But images or links within that post don’t actually disappear. Posts removed by moderators are still readily available to anyone on Reddit in the comment history of the moderator who flagged it, or to anyone who retained a direct URL to the post.
