Play a man’s game, now it is your turn. You force someone from position. Be a Jerry ma, and step down without talking, Yahoo is in the drain. Rumor? Go ahead and sell, I am sure Ma would be happy enough to see if such a fearsome strong willed and no-nonsense person is merely face value or heart value. At times strong willed and no-nonsense could be disillusionment and nrealistic in reality. But some could see this as their strength instead of weakness. kind of like patriotism

Ebay doesn’t scam? Stanford doesn’t? GM doesn’t need tax money? Banks doesn’t scam? Whats your point? All governance the same, as soon as you see this, you will see that these articles are merely attempting to play real politik. Pitting little people against little people, like both countries doesn’t have their own problems, like little people need more trampling. You think these big bosses care about anything other than acquiring sympathy and vilification of their enemies. You see JR/whoever come with that line and everything is absorbed into consciousness instead of passing/ignoring the gas.

whoever wins in business is not up to people but is up to something bigger than themselves. no matter how strong you think of yourself, you are only strong in your environment, when you out of familiarity, simple the kitchen quote is a good advice, whether one takes criticism as truth from friend or feels disrespected is up to one’s own egocentric definitions.

Strong willed? No-nonsense? just the opposite.

Most CEOs who don’t have this swagger is because they have screwed up some way or another and are begging shareholders for better compensation or more investment or some other way to con shareholders out of their money

Once the internet was a virtual refuge from thoughtless and numbing government interference. Now it has become the creature of government spy agencies and social control,(as in China).
I can see a day approaching when the internet will be remembered as just another “CB radio” flash in the pan.
People will say: If you want real privacy, send a letter by snail mail.

This is the last time we’re gonna tell you. You can make one suggestion from column A, and two suggestions from column B, and that’s IT.
Regards,
Ma
Yahoo Alibaba (China)

In my ignorant opinion screw the investors and take care of your company as you see fit. It should all be part of the risks in investing.

Is Yahoo stupid, or is JR unrealistic? As for “A taste of capitalism, and off they go.” What does he want the Chinese to do, stay communist? Now wouldn’t that be stupid?
