    I think he (Icahn) is a wise man.

    Perhaps shareholders should side with a billionaire rather then a board of directors that have lost 21% income.

    Maybe, but almost a quarter less billionaire than two years ago ;)

    I don't think a Microsoft/Yahoo! merger is a good thing, but I want Yahoo!'s shareholders to make a decision based on the full facts...

    Yahoo is a sinking ship and they would have been better off accepting the buy out. They may be able to last 4 or 5 more years but I think that is a stretch. Although even with a merger I don't think they can overtake Google.

    The problem with this is that Icahn is an investor and has only his own financial best interests at heart. Maybe I'm niaeve, but I think the current managament of Yahoo cares at least a little about their user base, and I don't believe that the same can be said for either Icahn or Microsoft.
