Yahoo is not shutting down all boards. That refers to bulletin boards, which no one uses anyway. ADI is a solid company. Not much to say about it. Pays a good dividend. Good for an IRA. One of 100 Greenest companies in the country. Just not very exciting or tradeable. It's a "buy & hold" stock. People who own it are not likely to trade it.
It seems this board has been "hi-jacked" by a few "xxxxxx" who like to have themselves paged in the cafeteria. This was a viable board with viable inputs/data/opinions. It is a pity that Yahoo allows this to take place. ADI may well be a buy and hold, nevertheless, there is a need for a board. I for one wish these clowns found themselves some other method to communicate rather than this board.
