Seems to me that the more important issue is the ethical and moral standards of Yahoo itself. Since they have not already fired Thompson, they have already demonstrated that the company is willing to "bend" the rules. This is highly indicative of a poor standard of ethics that has most probably permeated the entire corporate leadership structure. As stated in other posts, a person who lies for personal gain is not going to stand up and do the right thing when faced with a career ending situation . . . he will place blame outside himself and engage in extreme measures to cover up his mistakes. If the chief executives and board of directors are accepting this, then my question is WHY??? Are they all as corrupt as Thompson that they don't see the ethical issues and the proper course of action?
Makes me wonder just how careful they are about protecting my data that they have on their systems. This also raises great concerns about how they are balancing their cost/security budget items . . is it in favor of their customers or is in favor of executive bonuses?
