Well, they did shutdown r/jailbait for "threatening the structural integrity of the greater reddit community."

They shut it down because it had child porn. Not "very young girls", but literally de jure child porn.

It always did, and it always got deleted and the people were banned. The problem wasn't just the content, but the fact that some people took over the mods in a "coup" and were trying to fuck it up. Of course the CP wasn't deleted and they had to act.

They still could've deleted just the CP and restored the mods, but considering they had already moved to r/teen_girls, that probably wouldn't make much sense.
