Social news site Reddit has downgraded the status of its "technology" section after a censorship row.
The category is no longer a "default subreddit", meaning it stops being one of two dozen communities promoted to new account holders.
It follows a report by the Daily Dot that revealed headlines posted to the area had been secretly deleted if they featured certain words.
The subreddit's own moderators now acknowledge that this was a "disaster".
Reddit describes itself as "the front page of the internet".
