    Lol I was just kidding with that comment. Maybe someone will take it seriously.

     

    In all seriousness, Carol was an arrogant and ineffective CEO.

    "In all seriousness, Carol was an arrogant and ineffective CEO."

     

    Are there any government leaders that also fit that description?

    Government itself must point a gun at you in order to fund itself. In my view, everyone who works for an aggressive organization which funds itself through extortion is necessarily evil.

    Blowhard Bartz finally shown the door. Missed the hook-up with Microsoft early on in her tenure and then it was downhill from there.

    Dear Mr. Morse,

     

    You want to restore faith in your company and its stock, clean up the Yahoo Finance boards as quickly as possible.

     

    Their main purpose now seems to be spreading malicious - and effective - Malware all over the Internet.

     

    I believe it's a little known fact that Hackers routing through Yahoo took out seven power plants, 13 regional banks, 45 ISP E-mail systems, and 9,567,123 riding lawnmowers last month alone.

    Didn't she get ~ $40-45 million her first year? Please tell me why taxing people like her would be bad.

    Carly Fiona and she should open a lemonade stand together where they can spend their time adoring each others greatness and map out strategic marketing strategies. Could be a team as grand as Abbott and Costello if they really apply themselves.
