Ugh..."sent from my iPad." Hey, maybe she can work at Apple? All jokes aside, I am curious to what lead to her being fired. I'd assume she just wasn't fit for such leadership and didn't meet up to expectation. Hope it has nothing to do with her being a woman...

I didnt like her from the start.
Seemed like she was more interested in trash talking other companies rather than creating value for yahoo.

Yahoo has become irrelevant for a long time now. For a time they were quite promising, back in the dial up days Yahoo was certainly a force that could have been a giant even today but bad decisions and refusal to evolve is killing them. They seem to think that a goldmine lasts forever.

I am quite amazed they are still even in business they hold no unique service and lack being even near the best in those that they do provide. Even worse most of the services they do provide was a attempt to just mimic other services. Sorry Yahoo but its time to put you down.

It doesn't matter who is running Yahoo unless the company has a direction for the future. Being an also-ran for a bunch of web services isn't a recipe for long term success. Yahoo could have been Google, but instead they will probably wind up just fading away and eventually being bought by somebody.

You should check out their Yahoo Groups. Their spam filters are beyond pathetic.

Yahoo's big mistake was not accepting the offer from Microsoft.

It's a long, slow, painful slide into obscurity for Yahoo now, the only time they will make the news from this point will be stories like this or the big one that will inevitably come that they go bust.

They tried to send it to her through Yahoo mail but her inbox was full of spam ads that "missed" the spam filter. They tried to IM her on Yahoo messenger but it was lost from all the pornbots IMing her. They tried calling her through the voice function on Yahoo messenger but the voice quality was so bad she couldn't understand.
