I don’t like that directors’ proposals, such as electing directors, are automatically voted in the positive if a shareholder does not actually cast a vote, and all proposals made by shareholders that the directors don’t like are automatically voted against the proposal. Rather, I believe all votes that aren’t actually cast should be registered as “abstained.” I’m sure Yahoo! isn’t the only company with such a slimy policy, and other companies do this,Â but it isn’t right.
Maybe I’ll make that proposal for next year’s annual meeting. 🙂
