Jealous they got rich? Only reason I can think of...

I'd be jealous of Zynga if I were the kind of person to be jealous of a hitman's wealth.

I just wonder why is Anonymous even bothering. Zynga is already in a massive death spiral.

Along with most of the rest of the social gaming space, yes.

I've been an observer and occasionally casual admirer of Zynga, seeing them as being a bit of an experiment as far as the economics of gaming were concerned. Nonetheless, I've considered their stock to be pretty overpriced, even today.

Unfortunately, they ultimately decided to go all-in on one business model that really hasn't shown itself to be sustainable. If they don't learn from their mistakes and start trying something different, they'll be put on the ash heap of history, and I certainly won't mourn their loss. Creative destruction in action and all that.

The message from anon was retarded. While I don't give a shit about Zynga, this certainly isn't going to help anyone job-wise. Seems like some kids who don't know what they're talking about.

I don't condone illegal activity, but being targeted by Anon couldn't have happened to a nicer company. I despise Zynga and their tactics, and this new one is just one more rung on the ladder to hell.

I'm rooting for casualties. Hopefully a long, bloody war of attrition between them.

The cake is a lie, though. They had pie instead.

Zynga? Seriously? There are better battles to fight guys.

A meteor could take out Zynga headquarters and the industry would continue just fine. Also there would be cheering. And cake.

Let's take a step back here, fellas. The death of Zynga isn't going to "end the games market as we know it." The games market got along just fine before Zynga, and it will get along just fine without it.

Unless the only games market you know is Farmville and the like?
