[QUOTE=TheLinxV3]BUT THINK ABOUT THE SPAM BOTS[/QUOTE] You don't think Spambots are smart enough to translate [at] to @ these days?
My First Name is Thomas OH NO !
[QUOTE=HolyCrusade]Don't try to cover that shit up, I saw your post before you edited it. You complimented me for finding your name. It's not like it matters if we know your name Michael.[/QUOTE] My first name doesn't matter, but my last name blows my cover, man. Gotta keep this info on the DL.

[QUOTE] Sent: Thursday, October 25, 2007 8:44 AM To: Gabe Newell Subject: Gnome Gnome away, hey, me and my gnome in ep2 really been trough a lot, we have established some sort of connection between us, we finish eachóther's sentence's, we have been shot at, trown with, blown up, we have been trough a lot, and then he voluntered to man the rocket, and I miss him already, my question: will the gnome play some major role in episode 3, and will there be some retrieval achievement like: 25G: retrieve the Gnome from the moon. I owe him a lot, and the least thing i can do for him is to rescue him, he saved my life, and he was always there for me, with his big eyes staring at nothing full of wisdom, maybe make a spinn off where u play the gnome? oh well, I just wanted to say i really really hope the gnome will be back in episode 3, Can't imagine a half life game withouth him, only this time make a gnome holder on the car, greets, [/QUOTE] [QUOTE] I will let you in on a little secret. The gnome gets caught in a radiation storm and travels in time... he comes back in HL1 - yeah, that's right, HE IS THE GMAN. But shhh... don't tell anyone. thanks Chet [/QUOTE] Huge spoiler regarding Episode 3

[QUOTE=XcoliahX]Why are people so fucking wishy washy about their name on the internet?[/QUOTE] Because nowadays when you apply for a job, the first thing they do is googling your name. I don't want my future boss have a look at my Facepunch account to be honest.
Gabe still hasn't replied back. I guess it's the timezones, but you cannot be sure. Maybe he [I]knew[/I] that I'd post it here! [B]Maybe he is among us![/B] [B]MAYBE [I]I[/I] AM GABE! :tinfoil:[/B]

[QUOTE=NotYou3]the plot thickens...[/QUOTE] I thicken... The only phrase that popped up when you said that. Also it seems that he takes a long time to reply to emails and ussually replies with only 1-3 words. Like i asked a while ago(maybe 6 months ago?) if he cared about the leak anymore and his reply was Yes and no.
Gabe never replies to my emails. The only time I have ever gotten a response it was from our very own Jeep Barnett.

Gabe has a big list with all the good and bad boys just like Santa and if you haven't been a good boy he won't reply to your emails.
Fuck, what did I do :(
Gabe is cool.
[QUOTE=Fanboydude]Fuck, what did I do :([/QUOTE] You called him Fat.
I love gabe even more now
I Emailed Valve About An Animation I Thought Was Scripted. Its Below Stop Reading Here Its Below. BELOW DAMNIT! [quote]RE: Idea For An Alyx Zombie Interaction Animation From: Marc Laidlaw (laidlaw@valvesoftware.com) Sent: Tuesday, 7 October 2008 5:24:19 AM To: **********@hotmail.com Dear ****, It’s always fun to see these things happen unexpectedly, and you should consider yourself lucky and special that you witnessed a cool random moment. Surely that’s better than the same scripted moment happening over and over again for millions of players? Yours, Marc Laidlaw From: Gabe Newell Sent: Friday, October 03, 2008 4:37 PM To: Marc Laidlaw Subject: FW: Idea For An Alyx Zombie Interaction Animation From: *********** [mailto:***********@hotmail.com] Sent: Wednesday, October 01, 2008 5:35 AM To: Gabe Newell Subject: Idea For An Alyx Zombie Interaction Animation I Was Playing Episode One Yesterday At The Part Where You Wait For The Elevator And Zombies Swarm You And Alyx. Then A Fast Zombie And A Normal Zombie Approached Alyx And Alyx Started Her Animation For The Normal Zombie Where She Crouches Then Knees The Zombie Before Shooting It Just As The Fast Zombie Lunged. Alyx Ducked Under The Fast Zombie Kneed The Normal One Shot It Then Turned And Shot The Fast Zombie As It Lunged At Her Again. It Died Then Alyx Turned And The Corpse Of The Fast Zombie Flew Past Her Landing About 2 Feet Away. This Looked Really Cool And If I Had A Demo Of It I Would Attach It But Unfortunately I Had No Idea Anything Like That Would Happen. I Originally Thought It Was A Scripted Animation And Thought I Could Make A Machimina With That So I Looked Through The Source SDK But Couldn't Find It And Thought "Woah That Must Have Been Multiple Animations" But I Searched Found The First Zombie Attack One But There Wasn't Any Other Animations That Branched Off That In The Way I Saw It. I Was Wondering If This Could Be Coded Into Half Life 2 Episode 3 As It Was A Moment Of Pure Shock As I Never Would Have Expected It. Thanks For Your Time **** ********[/quote]
I emailed him asking him how many emails they get (roughly)...
