I just checked her profile. Valve removed all of the mods/files. There's nothing there anymore.

Anyway, it's ridiculous that Valve would give mod creators the power to ban people from posting comments, and even edit their posts and thread titles. I mean, come on Valve. How did you not see this coming?

Edit: She was given a Steam Community ban. Good, that's what you get for being a thieving bitch.

I love valve for acting so quick typically this would blow up, an this issue is not a small one to ignore this is the work of people dedicating there time and valve acknowledged it immediately before scummy journalist try to do a contraversy article long live valve!
