From the WSJ news alert thingy:

Whole Foods' founder and CEO John Mackey posted many messages on Yahoo's stock forums for about eight years, ending around August 2006, the company confirmed Wednesday. Mr. Mackey used the pseudonym "Rahodeb," an anagram for Deborah, the name of Mr. Mackey's wife. On the boards, Rahodeb routinely cheered Whole Foods' financial results, trumpeted personal gains on the stock, and bashed rival Wild Oats.

hahahahahaha DOH

funny, if he would have just hired some guerrilla marketers to post these messages for him, nobody would have had a problem.

A company that I used to work for had a character "Biznipian" who would alternate between seemingly coherent insight re: financial performance and wildly sexist bragging/incoherent rants and insults.

He even splintered into different characters and started arguments with himself. It was quite a spectacle.

Me and Conrad

Conrad and I have worked at a place where this behavior would have fit right in.

It was traumatic.
