    Peanuts for them. They would still have made 300 Million profit per year instead of 400. They are loaded with cash.

    Yahoo should not comply NOR should they pay any "fines".

    If I was Marissa Mayer, the CEO of Yahoo I would write a letter to the US government that states:

    "FUCK YOU. FUCK the NSA, FUCK Prism... and most importantly, FUCK your fines".

    What is the worst they would do? Lock up Mayer? She's got millions. All she's gotta do is fly to switzerland and get the hell out of the US. They will protect her there and she can still run yahoo from outside the US. She has made enemies with a lot of people but I honestly like the woman a lot. She genuinely cares about customer experience and shows strong disdain for corrupt patriarchal bullshit. Which is exactly what the NSA is. Just a bunch of rude, invasive, corrupt, arrogant mfkrs.

    At least Yahoo really is doing something so they can speak out about it in public, unlike Facebook who lives off our private data

    Marissa Mayer is a cunt. I'd rather see her in jail. Cut off working from home where a lot of single moms worked for Yahoo. Meanwhile, she works from home because she has a kid.

    Look you troll. Unless you've worked at Google for 13 years as an executive engineer, designer and product consultant who held key roles in - Google Search, Google Images, Google News, Google Maps, Google Books, Google Product Search, Google Toolbar, iGoogle, Gmail & Googles homepage.... then your opinion doesn't amount to shit.

    Her first year taking over yahoo stocks increased by 100%.

    "Mayer decided on the ban after spending months frustrated at how empty Yahoo parking lots were and consulting Yahoo VPN logs to see if remote employees were checking in enough.

    INSIDE YAHOO, *few* criticized the ban but >>>most<<< agreed that Yahoo needed a serious change in culture". http://www.businessinsider.com/marissa-mayer-defends-her-work-from-home-ban-2013-4

    Furthermore, she doesn't "work from home because she has a kid". Maternity leaves are a LEGAL RIGHT and she waited till the last month of her pregnancy to work from home, then right after giving birth RETURNED back to work. And when she came back she extended the maternity leave and offered new parents a >>>BONUS.

    You quite literally have no idea wtf you're talking about.

    200 people out of 12,000 worked from home. They had the option of working at the office. Marissa Mayer does a lot for the employees. Just because she wants people working together to brainstorm ideas as opposed to working alone, that doesn't mean she deserves jail or is the "c" word. That is absurd. I'm starting to think you like to troll.

    If you're gonna play the role of a sarcastic, hipster troll - you might want to learn a thing or 2 about business.

    Yahoo stocks have TRIPLED since Mayer took over. But the stocks on your pea-brained, prepubescent comments are falling by the minute.

    Well now, that's quite the change of tone there mate, what happened, got choked on the facts by BB? Shouldn't go swinging all that hate around if you couldn't handle being hit by it yourself, let alone not knowing anything real about the person it was aimed at, nor anything about the motives behind her actions. Not saying that Brix laid his hate on you, he just shoved the facts where they belong and I appreciate that from him.

    He's just a dumb little idiot playing a tough guy with his keyboard and KY.
