Keep Away, Keep Away!

Let's look at the facts: Playdom has a history of complaints from parents about violation of kids' privacy. Playdom has one of the worst customer service records in online history, if its own community forums can be believed. An international boycott of Gardens of Time has been organized by its own players. If Playdom had devoted as much commitment and energy to design and customer service as it has to promoting the game, this MIGHT be an acceptable and even moderately educational game to play with your kids. However, given that people are complaining in droves about the loss of money, bugs in the game which render them immobile and unable to play for days at a time, and a customer service division that is as callously indifferent to the people for whom the game was designed (we regular folk) as Caligula was to the common citizens of Rome, I think it's safe to recommend that someone put the game out of its own misery.
