In a surprising turn of events it seems as if the moderators at the No Mans sky subreddit had apparently had enough and decided to shut it down, to the disdain of some 150,000 subscribers. The said announcement was posted by moderator “rOugew0lf”:
“So I purged the subreddit. It’s become a hate filled wastehole of no actual discussion. It’s not what we intended it to be and I don’t like providing a platform for hate. I’m sorry to everyone who used the subreddit as intended but you are now in the majority. I’m sure you can find a different place to discuss this game. It’s not hard.”
“This was my decision and mine alone. The other moderators tried to sway my opinion but cynicism got the best of me as usual.”
There were a number of disgruntled players, who regularly used the subreddit as a way of voicing their displeasure about the game, and it seems that the moderator finally had enough as he decided to pull the plug on the popular subreddit.
