This abusive relationship lasted a couple of years and Yahoo! kept rejecting Microsoft. Microsoft resorted to a proxy battle against Yahoo!, drove away staff, put its own staff inside, used AstroTurf techniques to block a Yahoo! deal with Google, and eventually got Yahoo! on the cheap, after Yahoo! had appointed a former Microsoft partner to be CEO, along with Microsoft proxies like Carl Icahn who left as soon as the deal was complete. Here are some of the posts about it.
