I'm not the moral police, and I perfectly understand the nature of a corporation(hence no actual comment from me on the actual article), but I'm not going to be some corporate apologist and defend corporations whose sole existence is for growth and profit, and anyone who wants to drag them for it, has my blessing. I don't have a dog in this fight, and I'm not interested in lambasting or praising Valve in their endeavors in this. I want some products from them, but as I said earlier in the thread, they're making profit and being successful, so it's working for them, and that's all I had to say about that.
But you may be responding to the wrong person. I never actually criticised Valve or it's 'nature' or what the article is even about. I merely pointed out the ridiculousness of calling something a 'hit piece' based on two sentences, and quietly thought of the ironic situation of the poster calling it an 'agenda piece'.
