CNN just announced that Ellen Pao been replaced as the interim CEO of Reddit. Certainly she did little to ingratiate herself with the loyal Reddit community. Certainly she was tone deaf when she fired long-time and very popular Victoria Taylor. And perhaps her reputation was muddied by her recent legal escapades that have antagonized the venture community in Silicon Valley. Probably most important is that Reddit just wasn't ready for someone like Ellen, as an interim or otherwise. She will be replaced by the company's founder Steve Huffman.
