The strangest one of all is the disappearance of Tom Kyte, who has allegedly "took sabatical" and relinquuished the AskTom site to [Quoted] Connor McDonald. How does one take a sabatical? Does the company pay him to go hiking for a year?

[Quoted] I am not sure that any company would be so generous toward anyone, even toward a senior VP. This looks like a hushed departure from Oracle Corp.
