According to a widespread conspiracy theory on the website, Ghislaine Maxwell could have secretly operated one of the most powerful Reddit accounts ever.
There is no definitive evidence that the Ghislaine account is held, but hundreds of users have indicated that the u / maxwellhill handle has been silent since their July 2 arrest for sex episode charges related to Jeffrey Epstein.
In a Twitter post, YouTuber Joe Leonard wrote: & # 39; Ghislane Maxwell was the first person on reddit to reach 1 million Karma LMAO! To date, she is Karma No. 8. Her contributions to / r / worldnews accounted for approximately 30% of the contributions there. This connection was made after she was arrested and this account was no longer published there after 14 years. & # 39;
The u / maxwellhill account has not been published since July 1st, although previously the biggest new stories around the world covering everything from Donald Trump to space have been regularly reported.
Others have pointed out that the report often discusses the age of consent around the world, but completely stays away from Epstein-related stories.
Karma points are earned through other users' interactions with Reddit accounts. Records show that the handle currently has more than 14 million points and is among the top rated on the website.

58-year-old Maxwell, daughter of disgraced newspaper baron Robert Maxwell, will appear in court on July 14 for a trial and bail hearing, the judge who handled the case wrote on Tuesday.
On a board, a Reddit user wrote: & # 39; Not confirmed, but research suggests that / u / maxwellhill, the Reddit account with the 8th Link Karma of all time, powermod by frontpage subs like r / worldnews and r / technology, the first account to reach one million karma, is operated by Ghislaine Maxwell. & # 39;
The post has been liked over 8,000 times, with more than 1,000 users adding their own theories to the account.
Evidence provided for the unproven theory also includes the fact that the report was inactive at the time of Maxwell's mother's death in 2013.
The user also claims to be born like Maxwell in December and uses a mix of British and US spelling and French slang. Maxwell was born in France, grew up in the UK and has an American passport.
And there are also suggestions that the Maxwellhill name is a combination of her surname and the UK family home, Headington Hill Hall.
Youtuber Leomard said: & # 39; Although / u / maxwillhill is heavily involved in / r / worldnews, he refrains from posting through Epstein. Users even jokingly called the account "Ghislaine MaxwellHill". & # 39;
In a screenshot he added: "7 years ago, she even spoke out in favor of legalizing child pornography."
In 2011, Gizmodo wrote: & # 39; Maxwellhill not only tries to be mysterious; he / she tries to be successful. Maxwellhill's rise to power was deliberate and skillful. The million karma points were a goal, not an accident. & # 39;

It was also noted that Maxwell previously used obvious pseudonyms; One of her bank accounts was only registered as GMax this year.
Lawyers have already said that they have identified 15 related bank accounts in the past four years. The total amount of these accounts ranged from hundreds of thousands of dollars to more than $ 20 million.
Jeffrey Epstein died in August 2019 at the age of 66 in a New York prison, awaiting trial for sexual trafficking
But not every Reddit user is convinced. One, @hasharin, said: & # 39; Maxwellhill is a Malaysian, please stop this nonsense. I mod r / worldnews with him. Maxwell Hill is literally the name of a place in Malaysia, it is not a reference to its name. & # 39;
Reddit users have also wrongly accused and misidentified people in the past and wrongly accused a missing 22-year-old man of the Boston Marathon bombings.
The report shows current issues that Maxwellwell is focusing on, including Bitcoin transactions, Donald Trump, and the New York Times.
Many of the posts about President Trump highlight negative stories or critics of the administration.
The discussions of Reddit users come only a few days after former managing director Ellen Pao tweeted: “She was at the Little Christmas party in 2011, but I didn't feel like meeting her, let alone taking a picture with her.
"We knew she cared for underage girls for sex, but I think that was fine with the & # 39; cool & # 39; people who managed the tightly controlled guest list."
After the backlash, Pao added, "To be clear, the press had described her as underage girls for sex, but she hadn't been charged. I think it would be more accurate to say we suspect we knew . "
A Reddit user commented that Maxwellhill was silent during the time of this party.
Maxwell was arrested after months of seclusion and transferred to a federal prison in New York this week. She is pictured with Naomi Campbell, Donald Trump and Melania in 2002
Maxwell was arrested after months of seclusion and transferred to a federal prison in New York this week.
She faces six crime-related charges allegedly committed by Epstein, her former boyfriend, and a convicted sex offender who killed himself in prison while waiting for the trial last summer.
This includes perjury and conspiracy to tempt minors aged 14 to travel to engage in illegal sexual activity. Maxwell is also accused of having participated in some sexual abuse.
At the hearing, prosecutors will advocate Maxwell being kept behind bars without bail.
Prosecutors say she is an "extreme" aviation risk and point out that she has passports from the United States, the United Kingdom and France.
