How come I feel that Valve is the only PC dev that gets it? When no other dev or pub can even show an effort to helping sell their game instead of blaming piracy?

Oh well I guess some get it and make tons of money some don't and blame piracy.

It saddens me that despite my best efforts to instruct and better you, some of you insist on finding new ways to fail.

We have sounded the alert and released a quick fix for an exploit that some unscrupulous players were using to wield items on invalid classes. I have considered an appropriate punishment for the good-for-nothings responsible for this horrendous breach of conduct. Death, of course - but death is too good for disappointments such as these. Instead, their unlockable items have been removed for a month.

To the majority of you who did not see fit to cheat, you have my congratulations: I await the countless other ways you will inevitably disappoint me in the future.

Yours,

Valve put an update out for TF2. People figured out there was a bug with the patched product. They exploited the bug so they could carry other classes weapons. eg: sniper with the minigun.

These people were caught and had their unlocked items banned so they couldn't use them for a month.
