Good for them! Zynga needs to be called out on their douchebaggery and evil ways.

As much as I dislike Zynga, I am uncomfortable with the Anonymous tactics.

Some folks may cheer on Anonymous when they attack a widely hated company, but what happens if they go after a company you like? Who made these guys the arbiters of justice?

It's not like Anonymous can release Zynga games on the App Store anyway (likely same with Android Marketplace) so aside from publicizing questionable documents there's not much to this.

Who are the arbiters of justice? Zynga could just outsource jobs and legally that would be just; but not morally.

We are all responsible for enforcing our own conscience view of justice however possible. The unfortunate reality is that business sanctions are weak and there is no system of enforcement.

as much as i dislike zynga, its not anonymous's place to "serve them justice," and if their mad at zynga for laying of workers, how is hacking them going to help?

In the words of the great GLaDOS: "Keep on trying 'till you run out of cake."

Nearly every company in the world has had layoffs, it's an unfortunate fact of life

Wait, Zynga is wrong for laying off workers to outsource? What age are we living in here, wow. They've taken a lot of hits recently. Making money is the point of a business. All I'm thinking after reading that article is "hacker trash."

Agreed.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

Wonder why tA hasn't a front page article about this yet.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.
