You guys are so dumb that I'm going to use an even dumber analogy.

Is there a thread that explains why certain sites are banned?

Just curious.

i'm not one to want to ban sites (I can filter the content presented to me with my own brain, thanks), but IGN knows exactly what they're doing with that tweet.

of course, they'd play it off like "we were just postin' it bros!"

If there's news about HL3, I'm gonna have New Delhi-sized boner.

If he's right, we will know something in about 1 hour and 15 minutes.

I don't get why people who are suppose to be working complain about NSFW stuff, shouldn't you be working and not visiting gaming sites?

Never made much sense to me either. Pretty sure they could technically fire you for browsing GAF while you should be working.

That guy isn't actually saying anything about HL3 today/night so I'm sort of confused. He's just stating he has tomorrow off because it's May 1st completely unrelatedly to everything else he said. In that context, everything else he said is pointless.

Well, well, well, guys.

I'm going to explain my tweets 'cause there might be some kind of misunderstanding here. Just like you, it was all sheer speculation from the IGN tweet.

The first one "Hahahaha, Valvefags are gonna touch their wieners hahaha" was just a snarky joke (as I might also touch my weiner if something HL3 related emerges).

The second one was just me complaining about working tomorrow (print press, deadlines, etc.) even if it's a bank holiday in France.

And the last one was just about how *my* wiener would insanely grow if the IGN teaser is worth something.


Sorry for the misunderstanding, guys, would never be that cruel to my fellow GAFfers, you know <3


EDIT : Also, this is my personal account, which explains the (sexy) topless chick and the foul "unprofessional" language.

half-life3.com was registered by Valve:

http://www.networksolutions.com/whoi...half-life3.com

And the database for it was updated yesterday. It's the same provider as the rest of Valve's sites.

it'll turn out to be nothing.

Record created on 28-Jun-1999 (before their HL2 record, huh)

The database being updated yesterday is interesting though. I wonder what that means - it can't be the site keeping track updating yesterday, because their record on half-life2.com was last updated in 2010.

If you go to the website:

It just says "It Works!"

Or redirects you to orange.half-life3.com. It was going to here before: http://orange.half-life3.com/apache2-default/

1. I don't even know! Encountered her in a music video on Youtube and fell in love. (Found it, going wayyy too far in my Youtube history : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eg3xDliN-nY )

2. Part of some "running gag" I have on my account. I always end up calling myself a Googlefag so it has no foul meaning in my tweets :) (And as I tweet in french, it doesn't bear the same offensive meaning)

Nah, news outlets are alright.

I want any twitter threads to stop.
I mean do we really need to see Hideo Kojima's twitter about his food photo, or Hironobu Sakaguchi's twitter about surfing.

I think we should ban twitter thread.
