Zynga is an evil boil on the face of all that is civilized in gaming. I, for one, am glad I don't see requests for stupid items anymore. I am amazed how long it takes people to realize the games are boring as shiat.

That's because they barely qualify as "games." A game should not involve causing your friends to learn about blocking functions on Facebook. A game should be something your friends *want* to play.

And their stock price at $2.29 a share is overpriced by $2.20.

I so enjoyed Words with Friends until they got borged by Zynga. Now you can barely find the games among all the crap they push in your face. *block*

Isn't he the dude who told his employees to get back to word the day of their ipo?

I don't understand the appeal of listing companies on the stock market that even a Business major in a 101 class can see is a terrible move.

I don't consider them a "gaming" company. They're nothing but swindlers. Hope their CEO ends up in PrisonVille.

Don't know about that, but I recall them threatening to fire employees who refused to return stock options offered when it was a start up.

I don't understand the appeal of current business models, period. It seems that their ultimate goal is having consumers buy products and they'll be "happy" with it because what counts is the name on the front of the item and not it's quality.

*raises hand* So what if Facebook died? I would like to hear about what's happen to Zynga and its manchild CEO if Facebook died. Please tell me in slow details, like you were RR Martin describing a wednesday morning bowel movement.

I see the appeal of raising a whole ton of money so that the founders can get theirs before the investing public wises up.

When you put it that way, sure.

Don't know about the board, but when we were tearing up the carpet in mom's dining room we found some Scrabble letters wedged in corners of the closet....

\we never played it as kids

You know what's sickening? They made a Words with Friends home game, and Hasbro manufactures it. I guess they reached an understanding.

Sorry, that man child CEO has made sure he's already made a shiat ton of money and will, as the company dwindles away. And yes, he's done this in all the worst ways possible, ruining game experiences for consumers, treating his employees unethically, and stealing other company's intellectual properties and ideas. He'll be just, just fine.

Have a nice day!
