Russia has banned Reddit, on grounds of muh drug mushroom subreddit

Does this mean montageparodies will lose NFKRZ? :(

Reddit is like one of my most important work tools -I'm not joking- and I 'm pretty sure it's the same for many people in Russia.

If we're being frank here, a large contributor to the decision is probably that Reddit, among all popular communities, was very difficult to disrupt with the troll army.

Scientist raped journalist.
One url on reddit is blocked. Lazy providers blocks whole resource, not lazy blocks that one particular URL.
