Why he might be annoying
He had never heard of the internet before buying Monster.com from its founder.
He was so secretive he did not bother to tell Monster.com founder Jeffrey Taylor when he purchased Monster's largest rival, the Online Career Center.
He was married six times.
He resigned from Monster over questions about what the Wall Street Journal called 'a series of improbably well-timed stock option grants to senior executives.'

Within five years, Monster had passed eBay as the most profitable internet business.
He donated $25 million to establish a lung transplant center at Emory University.
