    The protests were led by the volunteer moderators of the AMA section, which said in an explanatory posting that they needed Ms Taylor's to keep the sub-reddit functioning. Ms Taylor helped organise guests for AMAs and worked to verify that people due to answer questions were who they said they were.

    One theory why she was fired is that she didn't kiss Jesse Jackson's ass; he was upset he was asked questions he didn't have to answer on tv/radio:

    There is nothing more annoying than a volunteer message board moderator. Remember Joey Boots "list" And they always have thier little group of Bobo like posters to kiss their ass and make them feel as is somehow sitting in their living room patrolling the posts on a Buffy The Vampire Slayer thread somehow makes them important in the world.

    This is one of the few sites on the web that don't have this problem.

    The biggest one was the old Televisionwithoutpity where the moderators where so out of control they attacked Aaron Sorkin in when he stopped in to talk to the fans and it got so ugly there's an episode of The West Wing dedicated to it.

    I read that question/answer the day of the AMA and had a couple thoughts: Jackson was cool to answer it and, how did this question ever get through the screeners?

    But he didn't answer the question. He basically recited his resume as to why people should listen to him, which amounts to he was near Dr. King when he died so he knows more than you. The fact that he hasn't done shit to advance race relations doesn't matter to him.

    Yes, his answer was pure shit and wholly unrelated to the question, but it was an answer.

    As an independent voter who has of course been branded a "libtard" by the GOP talking point spouters on this board I have to say that Jesse Jackson has never been more than a shake down artist who offers corporations "protection" but instead of damage if they don't pay he sends a bunch if his lowest IQ followers to protest them.

    He should have been taken out at the knees years ago but like every other blackmailer stupid people kept paying him.
