Nice, "Ain't it awful" article about how aquire-hires.  It sounds to me like what you want to do is get a small branding iron, and hold down the founders of all aquire-hired companies and brand "loser" on their forehead. "How dare they claim to have succeeded" you say.

However, if you actually google the list of aquisitions made by FB, most of them which are disclosed, pay in the ten to one hundred million range.  The cheapest listed is 2.5 million and after that is 10 million.  Not bad for some losers who managed to hide their losses in an aquire-hire.  One might think you are simply jealous.
