Those are throw-away email addresses, you silly wench.
Everybody has about six of those.

If she releases a sex tape exclusively on Yahoo, that would double overnight.  Won't she please think of the shareholders?

it might be 800 million users, but 600 million of them just log into their throwaway email account once every other month to clear out the spam

/at least i do

 She sucks at business and marketing, but at least she is hot. I'd have less of a problem with egomaniacal, greedy, stupid CEOs if they were all hot women.

Still, she should be fired. Yahoo should die. I say this as someone that still uses a Yahoo e-mail address. It' sa site that nobody cares about, and they have nothing to offer anyone.

Yahoo Finance still kicks ass. Also the biggest number of users for fantasy sports and pick'em leagues.

Unless you'd also joke that Warren Buffett should release a sex tape, shut your farking face. You're part of the reason sexism is still an issue.

But BRK.A is doing just fine, whereas Yahoo is not.

Those are people who have opened or returned to an account to play Fantasy Football. They'll be gone in 6 months.

With fantasy football, this is probably their business time of the year.

I like autos.yahoo.com to comparison shop, is there another resource that people like?  Their data has suffered in the last year or so.

I use Yahoo Finance and Sports although the Sports page has become pretty terrible with the recent redesign.

That's not comparable because Mayer is attractive, whereas Buffet is not. I have no problem with attractive CEOs of any gender making sex tapes. I might not choose to watch one of a side, but more power to them.

I am more than happy to give credit where it's due.  I have worked for multiple female CEOs and CIOs and, personally, I prefer working for a female.  However, the female executives I worked for actually did something.

What has WonderCEO actually done?

I don't remember when I favorited you that way ... You clearly have an attitude problem. Dial it back. See a therapist. Or just realize you're a creep and stop talking.

The funny thing is that as terrible of a CEO as she is, she's doing exactly what the Wall Street types always demand of CEOs who walk in and take over a failing company -- make a bunch of meaningless, trivial changes to give everyone the impression that you're "shaking things up."

Meanwhile, they're content to shake their fingers at people like Tim Cook who keep their already successful companies on track.

My ATT account automatically became a Yahoo account. That could bring in a few folks.

I'm in Japan right now and for some reason Yahoo is BIG Business here. They even offer a subscription broadband service here. Walking around, it seems like Yahoo is everywhere.

If I had to guess, most of Yahoo's user base must be in Asia because few Americans give a rip anymore.

Probably true.  I have a yahoo email, but it is one of 4 or 5 and I don't use it for anything.  I have my school/work email, my primary personal email (gmail), email I use for registering etc, throwaway email 1, and then at the end of the line, yahoo.  Not that I have anything against Yahoo.  I am sure its email works as well as any other service.  It just never made it into my regular rotation.

As has been mentioned, I do check out Yahoo Finance from time to time, but Google seems to have the most up-to-date information on companies.  At times, Yahoo takes a long time to update information on a company, particularly the dividend.  Information you want to have if you are about to make a trade.

They are also the ebay of Japan.

/Good luck finding someone on Y!A who will ship overseas.

Or emails of isps that force their user to use a yahoo address. Like AT&T for example. It not like anyone uses any of the content through the portals.

Hmmm, looks like somebody is on the rag.
