Yea but with Gabe making hints, others can easily jump on the bandwagon for the sake of generating page hits.
Page hits generate ad money.
These companies are in it for you and I, not money right?
At this point, as I said, these hints are useless without some real info or some meat to the hint. Otherwise its just marketing and ad revenue, nothing more.
