Yahoo (YHOO -1.8%) saw a bit of profit-taking after a string of downbeat articles were published. While AllThingsD took note of ongoing U.S. search/Mail traffic declines, AdWeek reports Marissa Mayer's first meeting with ad agency execs failed to drum up much enthusiasm. "Yahoo is low on the list and not just alphabetically," said one attendee. Also, Nicholas Carlson posted an e-mail purportedly from a disgruntled Yahoo employee; it accuses Mayer of being frequently late to meetings, neglecting non-engineers (previous), and hiring execs with poor people skills.

    When poor candidates get passed over for promotion, they sometimes take the news poorly and unprofessionally.

    All I see changing with the Yahoo website is a lot more ad clutter and constant lockups from malformed adware. The stock message boards are useless and often broken. I see nothing in the way of innovation, let alone fixing all the crap from the constant "improvements" being spewed out. I used to spend 8 hours a day on the message boards. Now I don't even use them. And search, shopping, browsing? It's a joke.
