Disclosure: I am long Geeknet (LNUX). I am voting for both Suzanne Present and Scott Kauffman. I have not purchased any shares for at least six months. I started accumulating appx 2.5 years ago. I will not be accumulating additional shares until there is evidence that Scott Kauffman is working as hard at creating non-insider shareholder value as he is with insider shareholder value. There are some substantive smoking guns with this company e.g.


1. Scott Kauffman's conspicuous absence from [any] Investor Relations effort both with existing and prospective non-insider shareholders as well as The Street (in particular) and formal public disclosure of any news, developments, etc., in general. This behavior allegedly places Geeknet (LNUX) as a statistical outlier in the world of Corporate Governance. Something is very very wrong here and goes more to suggesting Scott Kauffman is extremely naive as a CEO of a publicly-held Company. His naivety is contributing to Geeknet (LNUX)'s failure in creating shareholder value and arguably in destroying shareholder value.


2. Slashdot's loss of market leadership, share, and continuance as a Web 1.0 Website. See What happened to Slashdot?


3. Suzanne Present's endgame.
