Huffman stated that the company, Reddit had identified 944suspicious” accounts believed that to be linked to the Internet Research Agency(IRA). These accounts made more than 14,000 posts on the site according to CEO, Huffman. He said that “few” of these accounts appeared to have a “Visible Impact on the Site.

In October, the site reddit implemented a ban on content that "glorifies, incites, or calls for violence or physical harm against an individual or a group of people." This led to the shutting down of Nazi communities, or "subreddits," including r/NationalSocialism, r/Nazi and r/Far_Right. 
The chief executive also included a link in the announcement to all of the 944 IRA-linked accounts "to allow moderators, investigators, and all of you to see their account histories for yourselves."
Huffman says that most of the active karma accounts were caught and banned previous to the 2016 election. A big part of this is that as opposed to a site like Twitter, where users have to be reported to the company itself, Reddit users can be banned by moderators, which are unpaid community managers of individual subreddits.
