This is when you start to realise, that the other place is fully capable of solving all their problems, both with certain aspects of the community, and the tools they offer that community at large, but because they are only interested in becoming profitable, and see it as a job, rather than a labour of love, they have no incentive to improve their shit.

This was a realization I came to when they fired Victoria.

They're a social company, whose success hinges on the happiness of their community, and they couldn't give us a heads up?

They waited days before telling us, and they interviewed with journalists before directly telling us.

Sheer incompetence.

Their incentive to improve it should include profit motive. They've simply allowed a controversial political viewpoint to direct their plan for achieving that profit that many of the users disagree with. Time will tell if it's ultimately successful, but people like me believe that you can preserve free speech, keep the userbase happy, and make a profit at the same time.
