Unidan, aka biologist Ben Eisenkop, maintained five side accounts, which he used to upvote his own submissions and comments and downvote the opposition.
Unidan was almost universally loved on the site. Having participated in at least three AMAs, featured in multiple media profiles (including Mashable), occasionally appearing with Reddit co-founder Alex Ohanian, giving his own TEDx talk and even having his own fan subreddit, it’s safe to say that Unidan was, to Reddit, a stalwart and beloved community member.
Following his ban, many users have expressed disappointment and anger at Eisenkop’s clear violation of Reddit’s rules.
“This is like finding out Lance Armstrong took steroids,”user TheStarryMessenger wrote in a thread.
