(Newser) – Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz, never one to mince words, turned up at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference today and wound up telling TechCrunch founder Michael Arrington to "fuck off." The famously potty-mouthed exec didn't like the line of questioning the blogger was pursuing, and she reminded him that he's "involved in a very tiny company."

The TechCrunch transcript mysteriously omits the context, so we'll let ZDNet—and the video above—fill in the blanks. Bartz has been at Yahoo just 16 months, "so I don’t want to hear any crap about something magical that the fine people of Yahoo are supposed to do in this short time," she told Arrington. "So fuck off." And as Gawker points out, both CNBC and the Wall Street Journal have felt the sting of Bartz's wrath, which is pretty good company for a tech blog.
