1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    You get paid well to deal with bureaucratic bullshit?

    Some chick sueing a tech company because she was passed up on a promotion. There's a laundry list of reasons she didn't get the promotion but because we live an entitled society I expect to see more and more of these cases occur. If you are unhappy and aren't being promoted the company you work for is valuing you're time and opinion less that what you think it's worth. Well simple solution test the open market to see if it's true or not.

    Sue first and ask questions later is becoming the norm...just a waste of time and money. I'm glad she either lost or is losing the case last time I checked.

    Wait, so the CEO of a tech company....is suing a tech company?? I presume it's a former employer since the CEO of Reddit wouldn't be suing Reddit. :confused:

    But even then it's still bizarre

    She is currently the interim CEO of reddit, which is vaguely a tech company (to me it is a large website/forum). I don't know anything about her other than there have been a lot of claims that she is ruining reddit (who cares?).

    She sued her previous firm, Kleiner Perkins. Not a tech company...but they invest(ed) in some of the biggest co's out there.

    I don't know, man. Reddit is pretty important in terms of the dissemination of information. Sure, there are a lot of useless nerdy sections but there are also some serious and very good ones.

    So according to wiki, she's also married to a dude who was (is?) gay. I think that's the more interesting angle than all this reddit shit

    It makes her perfectly suited for reddit.

    Let me put this in SF terms:

    Fok decides to shut down DT in order to make the forvm more enticing to advertisers (pretend this is DT as of 5 years ago)...and then proceeds to also go after any threads that sound DT-worthy in other areas of SF...and then spamminates the accounts of all of the major DT posters (so nobody can see their posts and they don't actually realize they are banned).

    Then a couple of weeks later, he comes back and tells MrG to go fuck off and never come back.

    We'd probably be pretty unhappy with this...even if we weren't regular DT posters.
    It would just be icing on the cake and extra ammo if Fok had also been involved in a highly publicized (and failed) gender discrimination lawsuit and was married to a known ponzi-schemer.

    Reddit has a weird mix of demographics, often with little overlap. There's plenty of SJWs, but there's also a big community of seething misogynists.

    The prevailing theory is that Pao is secretly pushing the SJW cabal into power, but I think it's more of a Hanlon's Razor scenario. The management team is just incompetent and is pissing off all the major content creators and driving forces behind Reddit's popularity. The SJWs aren't as openly prominent, so they don't get hurt by these changes.
