This reminds me of that episode of South Park where Cartman buys an amusement park and makes it popular by not allowing people to use it.
It will be interesting to see if people still find it as popular.

With all the free advertising Flappy Bird has received over the last few months it will probably be even more popular this time around.

I can only assume it no longer makes people's lives a misery as per his original reason for removing it. Otherwise it looks like he just removed it to generate more hype and interest. Which of course would be a cynical view on my part ;-)
