I kinda think this sounds an awful lot like the first step towards taking iama away from the users and having it directly controlled by reddit. It is after all, one of the largest draws to the site. How could Chairman Pao pass that up?

May have played a role. If the mods of IAMA stay "on strike" as they are, it's only a matter of time before they're replaced with admins, and their big cash cow opens the door for business again. We'll see how it plays out over the weekend.

I'll be genuinely shocked if iama is still community run at the end of this. It would seem that they're hell bent on monetizing the site above all else. It's only common sense that they'd leave their cash cow in the hands of the general userbase as opposed to the company.

What? It sounds like the opposite of that. Reddit already had an employee running almost all the big ama's, if they wanted more control why get rid of her? Unless they tried to mandate more control, she disagreed, and they fired her for not wanting to toe the company line.
