To me it looked like a personal tweet, which has a huge bearing on how I would handle this situation.

This situation is starting to go from "he totally deserved it" to "why are you picking on the other guys who didn't make a total fool of themselves?". Justice has been served. Now they're beating a dying horse with metal rods. That's not cool or fair.

I feel like someone needs to say something about this situation: I'm a proponent for fairness and this is turning into what I'm going to coin as a invalidated hate spiral fueled by kneejerk reactions.

As much as he deserved it, doesn't Steam have to issue a warning or something like that first before a cancellation? If a CEO of a AAA company made this tweet to Gabe, would Steam take the same action? Imagine Head of Ubisoft or a high rank programmer says this to Gaben. I doubt they would pull Far Cry 4 off.

the format does not allow for any type of meaningful or intelligent discourse, so you see many active members doing just the opposite as a matter or course. this site was created as a tool for anyone to blurb what's on their mind at any given time and there would only be one natural result.

Look at that feed. Obscenities, calling people sheep, calling them obscene names, and then going off on how Steam is a Monopoly (really? They are a monopoly? Sorry, NO, they aren't.), etc.

There is nothing to feel sorry or badly for.

yea, looks like a bunch of jerks.

If I were Steam, I would forgive the company. Just my 2 cents.

Slightly different context but Valve has pulled all EA games off of Steam in the past due to breech of contract. Put simply any game on Steam also has to have all DLC for said game on Steam too, EA did origin only DLC and thus had all their games pulled without any notice.

Same here, the dude at fault already left the company anyway. I believe he has learned his lesson, and at 20, we all make them. He had every right to be mad, but a death threat isn't a joke.
