Catching Vote Manipulation at Reddit
Date : September 14, 2021

At Reddit, we are always active in catching bad faith actors whose behavior ranges from vote manipulation to posting derogatory comments. Previously Reddit would catch these bad actors using hourly Airflow jobs which allowed undesirable content to remain on the site long enough to impact other users. However with kSQL, we are able to reduce the time to catch these bad actors from hours to minutes.
