I agree completely. I don't think she belongs where she is... it has nothing to do with gender or her past. I honestly believe they are assets to her job. I just never got the sense that she understands her audience. For example, how would she attract the people like Slashdot readers to her services so that we'll feel comfortable putting them on millions or billions of phones and desktops? She has done nothing to attract and endear Yahoo! to the people who will get her exposure. Yahoo's investments in Alibaba also instills a great deal of mistrust. She's made her money there, it might be a good time to look elsewhere. I think she has to choose, either Yahoo is Yahoo or Yahoo is Alibaba. I don't think she can gain trust from Slashdot people when her company is basically one of the biggest shareholders in a company best known for fraud.
Without the trust and support from the "Advisors" in the IT world, I don't see how she'll get more users.
