This new msg board with permalinks obviously must mean I can't get rid of the garbage posters. My ignore button eliminates(fades) them and when I come back there they here all over again. What am I missing besides money?
You're not missing anything. The new message boards are rubbish and I told Yahoo so. There was a survey on CNBC on Monday. They asked what areas should Yahoo work on to make you want to use Yahoo more. The replies?
Overwhelmingly, it was the email that those surveyed said needed the most work. Others said it was the web page itself. It was so outdated.
Me? I don't use the webpage at all, so I don't care. The email? I find it works well enough...it's free! What the h**l do you want for free?!
IF I had a 2 minute face-to-face talk with the new CEO, I'd tell her, "fix the bloody message boards! Currently, they are crap and a step back 10 years."
Garbage!! What's the alternative? 24 is the right structural price. Nothing build in for forward growth. Anything less is the fast money playing the delta. IMHO. Big players stand pat waiting for monetization trailing. Next qtr report should get another tick or two. Jewish friends back tomorrow.
