    I bet you too, in fact, half the people on FP are actually spies for Valve

    But that was just an epic reply. MITea. Epic. This is why Valve is awesome. Because Gabe is awesome and he has a sense of humour.

    No we're not.

    Erm... I mean no they're not. :ssh:

    But yeah. Silliness aside, gotta love their responses. Glad to see a gaming company both: A) has time to reply to emails. B) has a sense of humour and isn't all official with their mail.

    I remember someone posted a email at fp once about why people never had to use a bathroom in hl2. The response was something like "We actually planned one in EP2 where alyx was going to the bathroom while Gordon fights off zombies."

    It seems that emailing Gabe gets your email to who it needs to go to.

    They aren't all that big, and that's why they're so great and so in touch with the community.

    They only employ ~160 people.

    That's actually pretty huge.

    Edit:

    That is, if most of those 160 work on games.
