I never understood why people loved Farmville so much. What's the thrill in harvesting a crop or tending to a farm? Well, I gotta stop farkin' so I can go play Guild Wars 2... I have some ore to mine, trees to chop, and vegetables to gather....

King Something: firefly212: dmax: I bought in a week ago, 100 shares at about $2.4, so I'm getting a kick out of these replies.

You threw away 240 bucks... that could have bought a couple really nice sex toys instead.

Or a dozen twenty-dollar whores.

But enough about Zynga's development staff...

Wait, isn't this the plot to "The Hudsucker Proxy"?

1) Crash the company stock
2) Buy back the company stock
3) Stop being tools and run the company correctly
4) Stock price rises
5) Profit

1) IPO to much fanfare
2) Pincus sells hundreds of millions of dollars worth of stock
3) Wall St wakes up, stock price plummets
4) A year or so after the IPO, Pincus and crew buy up the outstanding shares for pennies on the dollar and take Zynga private once again

Nice trick.

You mean, people PAY for games on phones? Now that is funny.

Pay to remove adds?
Pay to get unlocks?
Pay out the nose to play a game that lasts all of an hour?
