Draw Something was fun until I mastered it

Actually, though, the truth is I’m terrible at drawing in Draw Something.

And the real reason I’m boycotting Draw Something is both because I dislike Zynga’s business practices and I found the CEO’s behavior after his company OMGPop’s acquisition by Zynga to be reprehensible.

While it was fun to play, I’m trying to eliminate some of my life’s time wasters, so I’ll use the above as my excuse for quitting Draw Something… at the top of my game.

    For what it’s worth, and that may be very little, the CEO seems to have redeemed himself somewhat with the news that he rehired employees that had been laid off, in order to make sure they gained from the Zynga buy.

    I was somewhat impressed.

    Oh great, thanks, Stephen, for making me feel like a complete cad for not only leaving FarmTown for FarmVille but also Restaurant City for CafeTown. Sheesh. πŸ˜‰

    Hugs, by the way. We’ve been thinking of you over here on the East Coast. More pics of the kids, please! I haven’t even met Sophie…not that you’ve met our boys, either…

  3. Stephen Says:

    Heh, sorry, Amanda. πŸ™‚

    BTW, Happy Birthday!

    Thinking of you and your family as well. I sure hope we can have the kids meet each other soon. Come visit!

    Louis, I agree, that’s great and I’m glad he did that. But I cannot easily forgive the immense disrespect he showed to Shay Pierce. No sane CEO would treat an employee that way in public.
