No shit, Pao was doing exactly what they wanted her to do.

In other words, they thought she was great, but she couldn't take the heat from pissed off users.

They have chucked me; but you guys ought to hold Spez and kn0thing's feet to the fire and show them what this is really about.

I didn't give two shits about Pao till she started fucking up our shit.

Why would a fundamentally dishonest person like Alexis Ohanian ever care about what his users thought?

I mean, you DO know how he got reddit to take off in the first place, right?

I would have thought her role was to enact unpopular changes so as to appease advertisers and/or VC investers as a patsy, with the intention of bringing in Huffman all along.

No, they thought she was great, and they thought they could use her as a strawman so the internet would feel powerful when she stepped down.

Problem is, they didn't actually expect to lose a chunk of their captive audience.

Indeed, this is what I've been saying all along...this is just all about money and monetizing Reddit. Banning unpopular opinions and being "people friendly" as the subreddits made certain people feel unsafe or uncomfortable. What company brand would want FPH, hamplanethatred, or shitniggerssay on their "front page of the Internet" showing up?

A brave one that thinks unpopular opinions are just as valuable as unpopular ones? As for monetizing, I think they should sell vests and safety helmets with snoo on em so people can avoid talking and causing them anxiety in real life.

There was such an easy solution to this: reddit should have just announced that they were going to lock FPH content from being shown on r/all, along with a forthright, honest explanation that they are running a business and need to make money. I would have accepted that. Everyone wins.

I still don't understand why coontown is there though. If they remove harmful subs, why is that still there? To little people on the sub to make it look unattractive to advertisers? This is honestly ridiculous and just shows reddits hypocrisy throughout all of this.

[–] ZeroHex 0 points 6 points (+6|-0) ago 

Not just that, but if your advertisement showed up on a sub like FPH? You'd be pissed as a advertiser since it would look like you were endorsing that kind of behavior. When you put up ads online you can request that they don't show up on Porn pages for this very reason, Disney doesn't want to have their ad show up on redtube or something. The problem is probably that FPH wasn't listed as a NSFW subreddit, so there was no filtering for it automatically.

Ontop of that, they chose someone who get easily get victim status. They are using women and putting them into damsel in distress tropes, then ranting on about how pro women they are. Fucking disgusting. They don't care about gender at all, they only are concerned with their greed and how to use anything/anyone in their vicinity.

Many people were saying this the moment she was out, but got buried, myself included. Most of the users were celebrating their "victory" and didn't want to hear that it might not be a victory at all.

Oh well, nice to meet you Voat.

I might come back because my country's subverse isn't as famous as my country's subdeddit, but that'd be the only reason. And obviously not during "No Reddit Days".

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. Reddit is just like Goverment politics. Pretty soon we'll have the revolving door of Mods to Admins, Admins to Mods.
