Besides answers and information, faulty and abusive subreddits reside on Reddit. At any chance you are finding such content that violates the Reddit rule, you can directly report it to Reddit support anytime. Remember, all subreddits you are reporting will be reviewed by the Reddit moderators. If they are clearly against the rule, then only they will be removed permanently from the Reddit platform. So before reporting, ensure the subreddit you want to report is violating Reddit’s content policy.
However, some matured content is allowed while it is properly marked as NSFW on the Reddit platform. They can’t be reported and removed.
