There haven’t been any signs that Yahoo will make its employees work from within isolation tanks.  That almost seems like the next logical step, though, as Jerry Yang has followed up Carl Icahn’s critical words with yet another "all is well, stay on task" letter to Yahoo’s troops.

With his typical damn-the-shift-key style, Yang stated, "you should know that mr. icahn’s letter reflects a significant misunderstanding of the facts about the microsoft proposal and the diligence with which our board evaluated and responded to that proposal. . . .  yahoo! is a great company with a truly unique set of highly-valuable assets that is growing, profitable and executing well on its strategic plan to enhance our leadership position in online advertising."

As for the second part of his message, Nicholas Carlson reports that the CEO continued, "i ask all of you to put aside the rumors and speculation and stay focused on the business at hand and what we do best – transforming the online experiences of our users, advertisers, publishers and developers."

Obviously, there’s no real news here, but it seems that Icahn’s letter may have caused a stir within Yahoo’s ranks.  At the least, the company’s CEO was moved to the point that he felt like writing and sharing 300 words.

Anyone living close to Sunnyvale should keep an eye out for large pods full of water.

    Investor pressure kills the market. Yahoo should NOT merge with MSN. I’m sick of monopolies.

    However, I wish he NEVER purchased overture.com because my cost per acquisition at yahoo.com doubled. Totallycellphones.com used to convert at 5% plus and now that dropped to 2.5% via yahoo’s restructured CPC keyword program.

    I’m sure he had to answer to the investors and EARN MORE. Screw them because they screwed us with their less than perfect CPC keyword program. Overture had features and contracts that ROCKED. I can only guess it will get worse if they merge with another STOCK HOLDING MONEY GRABBING BOARD of Jerks.
