Now that is a funny post! ~
The question is why the board "cant figure it out", they know as well as anyone what is going on. The question is "why wont the board do anything". The answer probably lies in money they receive from this arrangement.
Whoever said that Capitalism creates an environment where cream rises to the top didn't know the mechanics of cronyism.
Actually, I would say it it the Institutions that are the problem. They have consistently voted for this board and this executive team. I think they are truly demonstrating their lack of understanding of the business, the products and services, competition, etc.... Sal and the Board should have been tossed years ago. Product Development is limited, they have ridden the stock to the bottom on stock repurchase (think where the stock price would be had they not spent all their cash on the repurchase), and a total waste of money of company purchases (ChinaHR, etc...).
