We can’t believe the gall of Hasbro for trying to crash the party on the Scrabulous, a Facebook Applicasian invented by our Amazian of the Week heroes Jayant and Rajat Agarwalla (pictured above).
Having realized all too late that Scrabulous is, as we mentioned months ago, the funnest damn thing online since cyberscrewing, Hasbro apparently wants to make sure no one else is cashing in on their caché–they want Scrabulous’s ass shut down. Hasbro is THE MAN.
We can only scoff at this stupidity–we’re witnessing the panic mode that sets in when an archaic corporasian doesn’t have the balls or vision to rise with technology. But sledgehammering people’s free, online joy does not pave the pathway to success… haven’t any of us learned from the ghost town of the music industry? If not, uh… we have a few thousand unemployed record executives wearing “Fuck Napster” shirts for you to talk to.
Fellow readers, let’s not take this sitting down! Join us in protesting this nonsense, and keep those delicate Facebook friendships (likely held together ever-so-precariously by the common thread of Scrabulous fun) alive! Sign the “Save Scrabulous” online petition here.
