    Golfclaps for Yahoo for buying a website for $1.1 billion, deliberately telling its userbase to **** off and go away, and then selling it a few years later for $3 million (i.e. 0.3% of the nominal price that they bought it for). Brilliant business strategy there.

    What they did was a bit like buying a giant global art gallery, burning it to the ground with all of the art still inside, then selling the ruins for 0.3% of the price. "Bad business strategy" is a very charitable way of describing it.

    I initially wondered what the point in having a solid gold toilet was, but I suppose it's a pretty much the ultimate symbol for being flush
