Just days after Reddit's army of unpaid workers rebelled against its paid management by shutting down some of the most important parts of the site for several hours, CEO Ellen Pao has announced her resignation.
She sounds exhausted, which isn't surprising from someone who has been in charge of the giant community responsible for some of the best things on the Internet, but also a very, very large portion of the online world's most horrible behavior.
From Pao's statement on the subreddit /r/self:
"In my eight months as reddit’s CEO, I’ve seen the good, the bad and the ugly on reddit. The good has been off-the-wall inspiring, and the ugly made me doubt humanity.
"I just want to remind everyone that I am just another human; I have a family, and I have feelings. Everyone attacked on reddit is just another person like you and me. When people make something up to attack me or someone else, it spreads, and we eventually will see it. And we will feel bad, not just about what was said. Also because it undercuts the authenticity of reddit and shakes our faith in humanity."
Reddit's own statement, which says Pao left by "mutual agreement," names Steve Huffman, founder and the original Reddit CEO, as her replacement.
