I mean it's not all bad, she is the reason I made an account here.

I defected from Digg to Reddit when Digg shot itself in both feet. I can very easily do the same to another community... and there, I just did. Hello Voat! This is my first post.

People have been calling for her to step down, not me, I hope she stays. No one can push people away from reddit and into voat faster than she can... no one...

I have seen few CEO's as clueless about its user base / customers as Pao. I honestly don't know how she has been able to defend herself to Reddits board of directors these past few months.

If I were a conspiracy nut, I'd think she was hired to push people over to voat. Fortunately, I'm not. The aliens monitoring my brain, however, are wholly real.

This comment sent me over the edge. I was going to stick it out and see if she came to her senses, but she doubled down. And here I am. My tolerance for PC arrogance is virtually nonexistent.

Ellen Pao doesn't even know how Reddit works. She once tried posting something from her Reddit inbox, worked like me trying to post something from my hard drive, like C://My_Documents/picture.jpg... She's a manipulative jackass looking to rake in profits to pay for her (and her husband's) legal fees for being fraudulent fucks.

Well, that explain the use of generic business strategies to manage a site that arose because the competition started using generic business strategies...

She may be unfazed by the petition, but maybe the board members will have a different reaction.

I came up with the idea last night that we should start a petition on whitehouse.gov to have her name legally changed to "Kung Pao". I'm pretty sure that's how it works, right? 250,000 signatures and then she's Kung Pao?

If you make it Kunt Pao, you'll get way more signatures.

Attacking her directly will never work. If you want her out as CEO, target the people Reddit has a strategic partnership with and let them know why. When Reddit starts losing business partners, the board will take notice.

Conspiracy theory: The board of directors wanted her to be interim CEO because they had plans to transform the site to be more commercial, and they wanted to avoid a Digg v4 extinction event, so they figured they could hit UNDO by firing Pao and reverting the changes, staving off the site's death long enough to think up a plan B.

The vocal majority are the content providers for the silent majority. Even if what she said were true, push the content providers elsewhere and people will follow.

[–] SuperConductiveRabbi 0 points 14 points (+14|-0) ago 

Exactly. Even if what she says is true, the vast majority of Redditors care about the content that the impassioned minority produces. You piss off the content aggregators and (on occasion) the content creators, and the vast majority will just drift away to somewhere better.

I wonder if she really thinks this way? Maybe playing it down is just a part of her public relations tactic.

It’s an exciting job. We’re doing a lot behind the scenes that people have not seen yet.

I bet you are; more changes for profiting and silencing opinions

3 year Redditor here who came here because (I can only assume) I was shadowbanned for a comment in an anti-pao thread. That was the final straw for me.

Well, back to normal until July 10th and September 30th. Then reddit will wake up and realize their wrong doings...

Nope, can't say that with a straight face.
