    There mistakes have been going back years, it wasn't just the hacking. The search engine became horrible, no attempt to get rid of spammy sites ranked high. The homepage had all sorts of BS fake news, so many ww3 is about to start articles and other nonsense.

    From the article:

    While it’s said that Mayer will depart from the new board after the acquisition closes, there’s no official word yet on whether she’ll be departing from the Verizon organization. If it happens, it’s been reported that Mayer could receive $55 million.

    She will be drinking imported for a long time!
