What I Think

Yahoo auto resignation tool

Posted on: June 23, 2008

By visiting the newly created site Yahoorezinr.com, current Yahoo employees can expedite their resignation to Yahoo Chief Jerry Yang with a host of Mad Libs-style pull-down menus.

For example, the site reads: "It is with great ‘sadness/glee/self-interest’ that I ask you to accept this letter as my official resignation from Yahoo!

"As you know, for some time now I have been desiring ‘more time with my family/a more challenging position/you guys quit destroying all my net worth’ and thus I feel the time has finally arrived for me to ‘move on/take a new direction/tell you to go f*** yourself.’"

Though it seems like the site could have easily been created by a disgruntled Yahoo employee, Network Solutions Whois registration data points to a Mathew Honan, who could be a contributing editor at Wired. An e-mail to Honan was not immediately returned, so it’s unclear if it’s his creation.

Still, some points in the letter are obvious hyperbole. In one of the menu options, the letter suggests that Yahoo doesn’t understand how to run a taco truck, much less a $30 billion business. The company’s not worth quite that much.

The rants may reach Yang himself, but that’s unclear, too. The form letter is addressed to Jerry Yang @ Yahoo (without the typical "inc" at the end of the address) with the subject line "Get bent."
