Reggie Davis, the attorney booted from Yahoo's legal team and granted a face-saving job monitoring fraudulent clicks on Yahoo's ad network, was not laid off, as a tipster told us. Here's how he told his staff he's still on the job:

Despite the reports in valleywag to the contrary, I am still here at Yahoo! Thanks for those of you who thought this was real and were concerned for me and my family - clearly the silver lining in this silly sideshow. That said, I will now expect everyone to refer to me as "Mr. Suck Up" and not just suck up.... Thanks, Reggie
