The Rise and Fall of Ellen Pao. Perpetrator or Victim?

There’s always been an old adage in the advertising world – “All publicity is good publicity” – however the sheer stupidity of that statement is enough to give old PR hands heartburn.

And the prime examples to prove its invalidity are the ups and downs of ex-Reddit interim CEO, Ellen Pao.

Since 2012, Ellen Pao has gone through an unbelievable series of highs and lows worthy of earning its own mini-series, starting with her $16 million case against former employer – Silicon Valley venture capital firm, Kleiner Perkins Caulfield & Byers.

Her current peak ended on Friday with her resignation from her post at Reddit, in the face of overwhelming negative responses from Redditors’ hivemind, a roughly 213,000 signature-strong petition demanding her resignation on Change.org, and the official reason of differences with higher ups over the future growth rate of the website.

And now, the statements coming in from Reddit Board of Directors and ex-head honchos possibly suggest that Pao may have simply ended up being a patsy for the decisions of others, rendering her pain and humiliation at the hands of disgruntled Redditors entirely pointless.

One obvious fact visible to anyone who followed this high-octane drama over the last month is that none of Pao’s decisions were evaluated at face value, and instead she faced constant uphill battles due to her sexual discrimination (not harassment; there’s a difference, people) lawsuit against KPCB, with accusations of everything from “suing her way to the top” to gilding her own comments on Reddit (the ultimate taboo) flying around left and right.

Over the last few months, we’ve seen this story unfold and encompass everything from gender discrimination in big-money Silicon Valley, to the insidious power of trolls on the Internet.

So, let’s take a quick look at the past few years of Ellen Pao, and let you readers evaluate facts as you would.

  • A couple of days ago I told you about my friend John Collins who was giving away his new enlargement exercises eBook. Well, he just reached out to me this morning and told me his email inbox literally blew up. He couldn't sort through the 230+ emails he had received in the last 48 hours BEGGING him to reveal more about his enlargement methods. John isn't the most technically savvy guy, and at his typical typing speed I estimate it would probably take him about a year to reply to all those e-mails. So, I convinced him to run a webinar and answer the most common questions about natural penis enlargement that he has been receiving. He is going to reveal some pretty shocking things about the enlargement industry, and what makes his two-step process different than anything else you may have tried. The only problem is, seating is very limited due to server capacity, so to reserve your seat you need to register at the link below. Reserve your seat for John's upcoming natural enlargement webinar ■■■ http://ishbv.com/pebible/pdf
