Reddit's chief engineer quits


Reddit's Bethany Blount is out, saying she has lost confidence in the company's new direction.

Her departure follows the resignation of CEO Ellen Pao, who apparently took the heat for a decision made by co-founder Alexis Ohanian to fire popular employee Victoria Taylor.

The situation at Reddit has gone from nightmarish to bizarre, as another former CEO, Yishan Wong, took to the site to denounce Ohanian and co-founder Steve Huffman's maneuvering to regain control of it.
