From what little I've read, it sounds like the new CEO of Reddit is so wed to political correctness that she doesn't mind destroying her company in its service.
I wonder why the board of directors hasn't stepped in yet. She's only been CEO for a few months but at the rate she's going the company will be dead within a year.

I just read part of the Metafilter thread about this, and my initial impression was wrong.
Apparently the "hate fat people" group wasn't shut down because of political incorrectness and hate speech. It was shut down because it was being used to promulgate attacks on other uses elsewhere on the site. Their announcement says that hateful subreddits are being permitted to continue as long as the people keep their hate in their own back yard.
I have no idea whether that's the case, but I'm willing to sit back and eat popcorn and watch the carnage.
