Hmm. Sound like it’s really bothering you.

Could you please link your Steam Profile with Facepunch? So we can see that you are legitimate owner of Garry’s Mod?

Yea here it is:http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198023268223/

On the right top of the website, you’ll see your own username, in my case “Cyberuben”.
Click on your name, and you’ll get to your Profile.
At your profile, click “About Me”.
Once there, you’ll see little pencil icons behind some things, press those to edit the data inside.

In my case, I have a CUSTOM Steam Profile ID.
Mine is “Cyberuben”.
In your case, go to Steam, Community, then on the right press “Edit my profile”.
Once there, you’ll see:

Custom URL: http://steamcommunity.com/id/<something here>/
Type in your Steam log-in name, or some other name you like (Can not be in use already).
Then, go to Facepunch again, add the name you just specified above, to the “Steam profile ID” and you have linked your profile.
