Upvoted: [Censorship] Reddit introduces a new “feature” to keep subs with the wrong opinions away from the general public. via /r/KotakuInAction

So I came across this announcement thread here,

I feel like this is just getting ridiculous and reddit is introducing more and more ways to filter right leaning subs while propping up the left. At this point, I can see no reason to create this "feature" other than to silence conservatives and give leftists the entire front page. ESPECIALLY since this is now the default. Filtered subs include r/the_donald, but not r/politics, r/trumpgret, r/politicalhumor, etc.

What's the communities opinion on this? Because my view is that they might as well just go ahead and delete the_donald. At least their intentions would be made plain then.

Edit: Mods just informed me via a sticky that, yes, KiA is filtered out of r/popular. I'm reminded of a quote by Benjamin Franklin.

"We must, indeed, all hang together or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately."

Edit2: Apparently this post is #278 on r/popular. There has apparently been some misunderstanding about who is and is not on the filtered list.
