    I bet they purposely "leaked" the source code, all part of a scheme to get people more excited about the game, and make more money!

    so i guess they are paying the people they arrested and charged with the leak to go to jail so they wont be revealed in their little advertising scheme

    no, he wasn't saying that they distributed their own code. He is saying like I said that they left security holes wide open(as I told you, they had the code on a computer that was accessed to the internet, would you do that with code that is worth multiple millions of $$$?).
    there used to be something here, but not anymore

    as the word "puposley" indicates. :/


    as to what he said, i think it's not very viable for valve because
    a) they look like a bunch of 'tards for getting their source pwn3d
    b) they are having to pay their developers more to add stuff into the game
    c) people are getting miffed at the wait(i can't say it's made me any more excited about the game)
