Redditor(1)

noun; derivation
A person who actively uses the social media website ‘Reddit’ or someone who fits the stereotype of those who use reddit.
 
The general usage of this term usually just describes someone who uses reddit without any sort of negative context. It is most often used in this context when you are talking about another reddit user while talking about something they did either in person or to other people on reddit. The ‘stereotypical’ redditor is often thought of as a ‘neck-beard’ which is someone who is generally an overweight fedora wearing male with unruly facial hair, low hygiene standards, and are usually considered to be condescending/sexist, overly diminutive, and socially awkward.
Etymology : Derivation of the term ‘reddit’, which is a blending of the phrase ‘read it’ in the past tense, with the addition of the ‘-er’ morpheme to create a noun.
Source : ‘once you have been a redditor long enough you begin to recognize that everything you found funny is just a terrible rip off of a joke from years ago.’ (Friend 05/2015)
