A large Yahoo shareholder angry over how the company's board of directors handled negotiations with Microsofts delights in sharing a story with us on how the screw-up is already adversely affecting their careers.
TCI/3G are activist investors trying to get a minority slate elected to the CSX board (I think the vote is today). They ran 5 board members, including Gary Wilson (Yahoo board member). Wilson was the only one ISS/RiskMetrics didn't recommend shareholders to vote for. Other Yahoo board members will pay the price for these bungled negotiations for years to come.
