"Well, after a bunch of soul-searching, I'm leaving Yahoo," Salim Ismail writes in his blog. " I took the opportunity to take a decent package." A liar to the last: Out of 1,100 laid-off Yahoos, Ismail was the only one to pretend he walked rather than being walked. No, Salim, you were fired in a mass layoff. Claiming otherwise, while privately badmouthing former boss Bradley Horowitz for canning you, is unseemly. And that promise to "help" with Fire Eagle, the project you kept taking credit for, even while it remained unfinished? The only help you can offer is packing up your things a bit faster.
