* ColbertBump: If a website is linked in a popular thread or comment, an inadvertent [=DDoS=] can be triggered, taking down the site. This is humorously called the "Reddit hug of death".

* InternetCounterattack:
** Has perpetrated quite a few of these. Reddit had to [[http://blog.reddit.com/2011/05/reddit-we-need-to-talk.html forbid posting personal information on the site]].
** One of the most infamous such counterattacks was when SomethingAwful released a "Redditbomb". Said bomb exposed the mods and site management being too cowardly to shut down some subreddits that were distributing '''child porn'''. Something similar later happened with r/creepshots on {{Tumblr}}, which exposed the personal information of various creepshot posters.
** Reddit was also a catalyst for the SOPA/PIPA protests.

* DevelopmentGag: Reddit was originally going to be called "Snoo" as in "what's new?". Obviously, this didn't happen, but the little white alien mascot ended up being named Snoo.

** The most awesomely heartwarming of such counterattacks was when SomethingAwful released a "Redditbomb". Said bomb contained three core facts: Reddits contained '''child porn''', the higher-ups defended the moderators of '''child porn''' sub-reddits, and that the upper elechons of the site tried to defend said child porn. It took '''multiple''' Redditbombs for the site to [[http://gawker.com/5884619/reddit-reluctantly-bans-child-porn reluctantly ban child porn.]] fnord.
** A counter-offensive against r/creepshots (taking lewd photographs of attractive women without their knowledge) on {{Tumblr}} that exposed the personal information of various creepshot posters.

* OldShame: Reddit's management have tried to distance themselves from violentacrez as much as possible since the r/creepshots debacle, despite giving him a "pimp hat" award in the past.
