Reddit goes down in a mystery outage |

I discovered problems accessing Reddit when researching the NiceHash hack, with Reddit being very up and down at the time before completely dying. Reddit is one of the world's largest websites, and without a public reason for the outage people are not happy.

It seems that the outage of Reddit are more so for US visitors, but the problems are widespread right now. Reddit's status page says that they are "currently investigating this issue" and that the "issue has been identified and a fix is being implemented".
