    Basically Anonymous is extorting Zynga into keeping jobs in the US by threatening to release the source codes for their games and hit them with super 1337 ddos attacks. Honestly though I don't think it's possible to take down Zynga with ddos, their infrastructure has to be huge.

    While I fully support these actions, I do not think they have the ability or capacity to pull this off.

    This won't work. Corporate billionaires are too arrogant to succumb to blackmail, double that if in public. Besides, these are facebook social games, the source code isn't their money.

    Also, threatening to ddos facebook/zynga labels them as retards in my opinion.

    I think the CEO of Zynga finally pulled all the cotton wool out of his ears and realized nobody likes his shitty ripoffs anymore, and is planning to lay everyone off and retire on his remaining cash... after losing the lawsuit EA filed against them, of course.

    What message are these dipshits trying to send? That they hate the idea of money going towards feeding a poor family in the third world and would prefer to see it go towards increasing the obesity rate in America?

    I'd rather my tribe make jobs via market competition than beg foreigners to do it for them. Mainly because I know how the market works.

    They'd have more money if that was true.

    Sadly, the only drug they're on is very cheap beer.

    I'm pretty sure the source code has no real value, considering how stupidly simple they all seem to be and how many far better open source games there are already. As far as I can tell, Zynga's real power comes from their marketing and prime real estate in the anus that is facebook.

    The threat is cool. Lots of publicity whether Anon releases the shitty source code or not. Anon wins for exposing Zygna's Romney-esque plan to an audience who would likely never have known or cared for a moment who has to suffer in RL so they can play FarmVille. Look, I just put in some fucking turnips!
