If Reddit had become even more successful than ever in the last year, Pao would have taken all the credit. If more women had been hired to the reddit admin team, Pao would have claimed it was her that did that too. Now she is gone everyone is going 'she was just a scapegoat' while beforehand she had her face plastered all over everything in interviews and articles talking about the great changes she was making to reddit.

I agree, but specifically the firing of Victoria at least seems to not have been her idea, if yishun is to be believed. It's kind of moot because the Victoria thing just happen to put a likeable face on an undercurrent of discontent building ever since Pao took over.

Well, the former CEO Wong did a pretty good job from 2012 to 2014 when Reddit's traffic jumped significantly. I still did not know who he was until last month's debacle. I didn't even know who Pao was until last month.
