How Much Longer Can Donahoe Remain CEO of Ebay?

Conversation tonight on a social media group: Poster #1: There seems to be a general mindset among many people that eBay will continue to enjoy a sort of carte blanche and invincibility. I'm convinced it has to come to an end somehow, fairly soon. What is your take on this matter?

Poster #2: As I have posted before, only Donahoe's leaving will mean a chance for real change. If he was gone and the new CEO was a person that wanted to grow the business again, wanted to encourage all sellers, there would be hope. As ebay does worse and worse, they may not be able to hide the dirty laundry forever. When the Wall Street analysts become negative and the share price drops, there is hope Johnny Boy is out.

Poster#1: Point being: the hacking mishandling, ebay stock almost flat for 52 weeks, Marcus left PayPal for Facebook, Icahn before all of the above slinging arrows, what exactly will it take to get Donahoe out of there?

Poster#2: A friend of mine is a guy with an important job at an institutional brokerage and research firm. I have been telling him for a while about ebay's agony. He told me recently that "everything he now hears about ebay is bad. He gets this from mother top people inthe securities and research world

Poster #2: I have no timetable. They cook the books really well. Donahoe had his compensation cut. That is a sign he is out of favor. There is no guarantee the next guy will be better. Just a chance.

Also from a social media group: GROUP ALERT: Now would be an excellent time to Priority Mail or FAX your personal experiences of eBay and/or PayPal having treated you in ILLEGAL WAYS to the Attorneys General of Florida, Illinois, California, as all 3 are about to investigate eBay. Although the focus of their investigation will be regarding eBay's mishandling of the hacking event, BRINGING TO THEIR ATTENTION EBAY'S OTHER ILLEGAL AREAS could expand the scope of the current inveistigation or trigger additional investgations of eBay. The mailing addresses for all 3 of these Attorneys General can be Googled. Yes, you can also email them or call their 800 numbers, but for something of this nature FAXES or traditional mail is the prefered method to get their attention.

From an online blog: "Ebay continues to crumble and fall apart at the seams.
Is anyone noticing how quickly they are deteriorating?
A true indication of a large company with serious internal infrastructure damage.
John Donahoe has failed ebay users in so many ways.
Why is he still there? How badly does he have to ruin this company before they oust him?
Ebay is a classic example of corporate corruption to an extreme.
It's totally sad to see how easy it is for upper level CEO's to ruin a healthy company then walk away with large sums of money."
