    Here are some examples in an article from Vox. You can search subs like SRD for a more indepth view.

      Other than a quote from Pao about banning harassing subreddits when "moderators don’t take action" I don't see anything in the Vox article about moderators "actively encouraging harassment"; I'm skeptical if this was ever the case.

        In a time where automoderator is built into reddit and default configs are posted by the plenty, failure to prevent witch hunts is either willful negligence or direct malice. Before the ban, I can guarantee you the admins messaged them on multiple occasions. I know this to be true because the sub I moderate always get admin messages when we're doing something detrimental(often times, crashing reddit every sunday between September and February).
