    put up with that sort of crap. I doubt anyone younger would, either, unless they want Ms. Mayer to take over for a helicopter parent. Without trust, Yahoo will perish.

    Those who do not understand history are condemned to repeat it... in summer school.

      that Yahoo is circling the drain.

      When I started reading your diary, CC, I quickly recalled high tech articles from 12-14 months ago announcing that Yahoo was in trouble.

      This change Mayer has implemented reminds me the old phrase of "bayoneting the survivors": a lot of the smart people at Yahoo -- the ones the company badly needs to stay in business -- have been leaving, & the good ones who are left are doing so out of loyalty. This is simply gives them one more reason to leave.

      Then again, maybe there is a large proportion of fuck-ups currently at Yahoo, the people who know they're not qualified & won't get a job for this much money anywhere. But I doubt Mayer & her HR hatchet woman would know how to identify this deadwood & get rid of it; it's a skill few managers have.
