The Reddit CEO edited a post on Reddit other than his own within the systems set rules. That has to be a clear violation. However he just points to another issue, the trolls, and off they go. Trey and Matt are really on top of things. Which is just amusing. I wonder if someone in the history of Reddit's employee's has done the same thing and been terminated for it. If so their HR department is probably going to have a mess on their hands.
This guy acted like one of those board admins who can't handle what's going on and jumps into the fray, then applies the ban hammer. Instead he should have just stepped back and directed efforts on making Reddit better by fixing the issues at hand and not just in one sub. Or just for one issue. Big picture is needed.
