The WallStreetBets subreddit, which has seen a significant increase in attention in recent days following the meteoric rise in GameStop’s stock driven in part by traders on the forum, has been made private. Reddit confirmed to The Verge that the subreddit’s moderators were the ones to make it private.
However, it’s not just people who weren’t subscribed to the subreddit who are no longer able to access it — many users who say they were subscribed are reporting that they can’t view it anymore.
