I think he's leaving because when he started in May 2012, he said, "I'm going to step down in May, 2013".

Wow, that was pretty Business Insider-worthy reporting then :(

I've said it in the past, we need to block Business Insider links from HN.

Concur, upvoted. There seems to be a deliberate effort to push a BusinessInsider presence onto HN, far beyond its actual value.

Why isn't this article titled "Yahoo's Chariman thought to be the person who convinced Yahoo to enter into a disastrous patent lawsuit against Facebook last year is out"?

It's sad to see how much slack she's getting in comparison to male CEOs.

Whether Marissa Mayer was a good choice for CEO or not, the stock market has spoken, with YHOO more than doubled from the low point.

It would be a mistake to link the rise to Mayer without specific evidence, given that the market has been rising overall.
