Zynga's (ZNGA +1.2%) defections continue. The latest involves CityVille general manager Alan Patmore, who has left for "hardcore" gaming startup Kixeye. Zynga recently issued equity grants in the hopes of keeping dispirited employees from leaving. Bloomberg noted yesterday management refuses to consider a sale, a stance that leads some to think an activist push is possible, given Zynga now trades near cash levels. (COO resignation)
