I don't think one person criticising another is going to cause a massive drop in market share.

You really are being a little silly

Did you read my entire comment? Notice how I said "over the past 3 years".

I did. Perhaps I should have phrased my reply a bit better:

People who criticise another person for an act which is contentious is not going to produce a drop in market share.

Perhaps even this is not obvious enough for you. You're probably being deliberate obtuse though. The simple point is that you can't infer a technical ability from their belief on whether gay marriage is right or not.

In addition, even if these people were proven to be bad at their jobs, I doubt that would cause the drop in market share either. Three people who are not at the very top of the company are unlikely to have that effect.
