Zynga should kick Porter to the curb for bad behavior.
I also suggest that Pierce sue Porter for defamation of character, taunting, and cyber bullying. You know...that's illegal now.

That isn't an apology.

It is a stupid excuse for having ranted against the one who decided to go a different direction.

And a slap in the face to the rest of us, who Dan Porter thinks we're stupid enough to think he's giving an apology and is supportive of his employees. His continual explanation only shows he's simply in damage control mode and knows nothing about how to lead and supervisor people and create a productive working environment.

His other employees should not trust him.

Dan Porter = jerk who needs to step in front of a bus.

That's not an apology in any sense or stretch of the word. I'm curious why the author thinks it is?

that's not an apology. "You suck and your mom is a fat bitch!" and then "What I meant to say is that we're all happy here" eh?

And in a year,their game and their name will be all but forgotten. Nothing more than flavor of the week and they should never believe they are more.

Acts like a dick.
People tell him he's a dick.
Apologises for being a dick.
Still a dick.

Exactly this. I really hope Justin Kerr was just trying to be sarcastic when he said the guy's apology sounded sincere.

To clarify: I think he is sorry he said it, but only because of the backlash. A sincere appology can still be given for the wrong reaons.
