Engadget was recently banned by Reddit after the service identified an unusually high level of Engadget links being submitted. We immediately followed up with Reddit, and let them know that Engadget was not involved in any kind of inappropriate activity. Reddit confirmed that the links were being submitted by a known botnet, and has lifted the ban. Both we and Reddit are investigating the matter. Reddit has been very helpful throughout this process and we appreciate their help and support.
