Even if you're not a fan of the site, it's never good to see people lose their jobs. Joystiq has news
getting hit with layoffs. They even have the internal memo that was passed around concerning this.
The funny thing is they are profitable and continue to grow but I guess it's outpacing the costs associated with running the site. Or, they just want more money in these times. In any case, we'll have to see in the next few days what parts of the site's going to be hit with less resources to use. Hope those affected find a new job quickly.
