SWAT does exist outside of the US.

A S.W.A.T (Special Weapons and Tactics)[1][2] team is an elite paramilitary tactical unit in American law enforcement departments as well as some foreign police departments.
Quote:
Since then, many American and Canadian police departments, especially in major cities and at the federal and state-levels of government, have established their own elite units under various names; these units, regardless of their official name, are referred to collectively as SWAT teams in colloquial usage.

Oh, and hackers don't always make good game developers, or vice versa.
And the fact that he emailed Gabe, apologised, and said he was truly sorry, and that it was never meant to be leaked to bit torrent means nothing? Okay the guy was stupid and shared it with another guy... But young kids can be stupid.

It's not like people don't lie in emails, but I would have at least met the guy in person and talked to him.

I don't. I don't think Valve was wrong in this at all. If Gabe gave him a job it would show all other hackers you will get rewarded for your illegal activities.

The kid is definitely a sympathetic character. Seems like he learned his lesson. I hope he goes far.

Hmmm, first the "Valve is not yet ready to talk about HL2: EP3", now this article.

Either the press is gearing up to talk about what's coming after Portal 2 just because Portal 2 is related to the HL2 universe and HL2: EP3 is supposedly next on the list of releases, or they are doing all that AND know something more than we do. Hmmmm Hmmmm Hmmmm Let the rumours begin... again! LOL
