Well first of all, you had to participate in the Reddit April Fool's joke, the one where they said they bought TF2. And either had to be on Team OrangeRed or Periwinkle.

How do I get the new "I support pedofiles" hat? I just want to make sure I never aquire this item in my inventory.

I've preemptively uninstalled TF2 to make sure I never aquire these promos items, even if by accident or a software bug. Sorry Valve, but you've gone too far now. I can't financially support your company any longer.

Beg me pardon but I don't quite get why VALVe participating in a community April Fools joke is upsetting you, care to explain?

Reddit does not support pedophilia (unless you are referencing "pedobear", which is a internet-wide meme), nor child pornography nor anything else illegal from what I can gather.

Might want to use the other part of the Internet that isn't infested with drooling, mouthbreathing pedos. You might not want to be associated with a site that is literally a haven for pedophiles. Aside from this, the site is the home of everyone at your high school that nobody talked to or listened to because they're either stupid or too socially inept to be taken seriously.

And.. what does distributing in-game content to the /r/TF2 community have to do with that?

Although that is disgusting, don't judge the whole of reddit by that single part. Although there could have been better choices, reddit is at least not publicly advertising that, or even claiming it, only leaving it to be implied by certain people. Also, it could have been that maybe they actually did not break any of the rules of reddit and reddit did not want to forcibly shut it down (although that probably should have been a better option, or at least have discouraged it).
Also, the in-game hat only implies you attend the tf2 or main part of reddit.

well THIS is going on r/WTF...

Regardless, Reddit has defended pedophiles in the past and I will never support anything they do nor anything any organization, for profit or not, has to do with them. Basically, if you have "Reddit" anywhere near you, I instantly assume you're an immature idiot who supports child pronography. Sorry, but stereotypes are a pain, aren't they?

Stereotypes can give a good general idea, but certain exceptions can appear.

Also, this would be mildly off topic. To answer you original question (if it was serious), you have to had a reddit account linked. Also, the discussion starter may have just been curious, and not have wanted it.

Aside from your name, the fact you said you'd post my complaint about pedos on Reddit gives you away immediately.

More than that, they are irrational, not to say stupid.

Or do you really think that it's justified that if someone is using a redddit driven board for tf2 discussions he automatically should be treated like a pedophile sex offender?

Because, call me crazy, I don't.

Supporting pedophiles indirectly and being a pedophile are not mutally exclusive.
