Spotted this in the news which is a timely reminder to resist temptation:
"Yahoo! Inc. is under pressure from Third Point LLC, one of its largest investors, to dismiss Chief Executive Officer Scott Thompson for failing to correct false academic information on his biography.
Third Point, which is fighting for representation on Yahoo’s board because it says the company is poorly managed, said Yahoo should “terminate Mr. Thompson for cause immediately,” after his resume erroneously said he had a degree in computer science. Yahoo is reviewing the matter.
The investor highlighted the discrepancies in Thompson’s record on May 3, and yesterday complained that Yahoo isn’t responding adequately. The dispute adds to challenges facing Yahoo, which is struggling to revive growth and stem customer losses. The company hired Thompson from EBay Inc. in January after ousting his predecessor, Carol Bartz, who failed to gird Yahoo against threats from Google Inc. and Facebook Inc.
“It is so clear-cut whether one has a degree or not that it is a deliberate lie and the only reason to do it is to misrepresent yourself,” said Janice Bellace, professor of legal studies and business ethics at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. “The board should certainly be looking at his capacity to lead the company and the example he sets for others in the company.”http://mobile.bloomberg.com/news/2012-05-05/yahoo-...
