    Yea, because that would be a smart move in the long run? So your going to sue the HL community over HL2 source, and ruin the driving and developmental force that HL2 carried with it? So you not only wreck HL2 but wreck the potential of community HL2 expansion and possibility of a HL3 because you killed the market.

    Wrong, its a stupid idea.

    they will never find the people that stole it, and even if they do they will never eradicate it from the internet. On top of being on kazaa, it's already spreading like wildfire via underground transfer programs such as bit torrent.

    Sue everyone that downloads music? What are you stupid? Everyone who likes music, within reason, has downloaded music from kazaa. So now you're going to sue your market? Brilliance, why didn't I think of that!

    I wouldn't worry about this too much, there shouldn't be any cheating online, and offline, well there always is an who cares? It won't affect you.
    Either this was sarcasm, or someone needs a copy of CS and a public server...

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    Well, half sarasm(as was apparent in my whole post).

    I have played CS, the game is ruined by hacking. Public servers are awfull ones to play on anyways.

    CS has been releasing anti-cheat patches and any good server runs anti-cheat software.

    I would hope they can stay on top of the cheaters, so we won't have anything to worry about.

    Sorry, I just posted that after I read his response to my initial post, Oh well I didn't know what the RIAA was until I read your response to my post so I probally would have done the same.

    That's true. However, as any 'good' virus, a cheat can only be detected after it is know to the anti-cheat tool writers. One of my friends is working with the CD ( Cheating Death ) Team, and I really don't like what I see there. They know what can be done and they really don't play anymore except for LANs with friends.

    Even if all people are running anti-cheat tools... cheating is just a matter of finding the right download link.

    Anything can be hacked. It's just the nature of computer software. There will never be a cheat-proof game.
