When she fired him did she hit him in the face with a giant beach-ball globe asking him if he was going to cry?

If "a dead man walking" is to be paid out $20 million after already getting paid 39.2 million doing fark-all for the company....sign me the fark up.

America, your CEO culture is ridiculous.  Like, really really ridiculous.  Your boards should be demanding cuts THERE, not your working class. I mean wow, LOL.

Are we still worshiping at the cult of Melissa?  Because I still don't see that she's done anything at Yahoo other than raise the stock price because they hired a MILF CEO

Leo McKern was the best No. 2.

... So, I'm guessing this No. 2 was outed by D6, who was reporting to X.O.4...

You mean Marissa?

well, she (personally!  as she tells it) helped update the old logo to a shiny new one.  that's worth a few extra mill a year, right?

//sarcasm off - no she really has not done anything for the brand or increase their search engine traffic, which is their bread and butter.

Well, she's a very effective attention whore.  In the past year, on multiple occasions, I've checked Yahoo to verify that they still suck.  That's more than I've done in the previous 5 years.  She's mostly rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic, but that's still more than Yahoo had done in the last decade.

Yeah her.  Every time I see a picture of her with the President it irritates me.  Unless Obama is hitting that.

She was actively involved in the new logo design.  So she has that going for her.  Which is nice

Marissa Mayer is the biatch I blame for turning my legacy Yahoo that I've been comfortably using for 15 years into something that looks like a GD iPhone app.

Yahoo is the Radio Shack of Internet companies.

You haven't gone there in 10 years, they don't have anything you're interested in, you don't know anyone else who goes there and it's always empty when you look, and yet it stays open for business.

Cute Blonde CEO is not accomplishing anything her predecessors didn't, once again trying to gather some heat for a directionless company.  But just as Carly Fiorina before her, she HAS managed to make a bigger name for herself.

/killing telecommuting was just mean
/they should have sold out to MS years ago

And yet, Mayer only made 36 million, the poor thing. It's gotta sting when the guy you just fired for incompetence walks out the door 23 million dollars ahead of you.

/Okay may "poor thing" is the wrong choice of words...

You are so right. How is it that the cost of this executive turd in the punch bowl dosen't come out of her and/or the board of directo's pocket's is pathetic.

Having seen a few of these dustups firsthand
(abeit on a smaller scale) before, I'm guessing he called it as he saw it, told her that her ass kissing lackeys were useless clingons*,  and kept showing her how her plans wouldn't work. In an incompetent organization, nothing gets you canned quicker than the truth. Sadly, that payout is probably hush money to keep him from exposing that the emperor has no cloths.

FTA- he had a tense relationship with Mayer and her entire inner circle. "They just did not get along and did not hide it at all,"

On the bright side- this is capitalism in action. no government money was directly involved (although various pension funds may take a hit as investors) and hopefully Henrique will take his gains and plow them into something better run and more profitable than yahoo. Watch where he ends up and see what kind of money they make before passing judgement. I'm thinking he was kicked to the curb before he could expose the new management for the frauds they are.

*clingon - A person who is effectively useless in their position, but who maintains it by clinging on to a successful person via politcs,ass kissing, and exploiting the system such that they appear indispensable.

I liked yahoo because they had
personally selected links/blogs- discontinued
free personals - discontinued
fark styled news aggregation - discontinued

they consistantly eliminated all the services that set them appart and stopped
adding anything worth mentioning.

Good luck fixing that.
