I agree with those who believe this was the plan from the start.

It wouldn't be the first time companies use big shots as scapegoats to divert the backslash to go on with unpopular changes they couldn't do otherwise.
Scapegoats usually get a lot of money for this.

Ok, here is how a board of directors works: they manage the long term strategy of the organization, but the officers they appoint(pao) manage the day to day running.

They appointed her, told her to prepare reddit for monetization, and she went about it her way.

As a result, we are here now, because her way messed things up.

In fact, the few people who do have shares in reddit, if they are not all on the board, may start sueing the board over this mess, because pao did not strike me as having the qualifications to be in charge of such a site.

Here is an example of a publicly traded company, getting sued by their shareholders for hiring a fuck up. http://www.nytimes.com/2005/08/10/business/media/ruling-upholds-disneys-payment-in-firing-of-ovitz.html?_r=0

Granted, the share holders lost, because contract law/golden parachute, but the point is, all too often, the board of directors will put the wrong person in charge, and that person makes a mess. It happens, and the law protects people who make honest mistakes.

She was used as a scapegoat for the board's decisions from what I've heard

Since we're both still posting the only difference between me and you in this conversation is the fact that I'm obviously more intelligent than you. The fact that I am more intelligent indicates that I am of a higher value to society and thus am more likely to go further in life, therefore I suggest you get a life, because I already have one. The fact that you actually took the time to find another of my posts is further evidence that I am not the issue here. I am simply replying to what's in my inbox, this doesn't take me more than 3 minutes.

Should we thank Ellen Pao for the final push to voat?

FTFY.
