2014 idiot of the year award goes to..... Mike Maulbeck

Way to go moron you just got banned from the biggest and most money making game site ever and also ruined your video game career.

Oh and Radio Shack said don't even bother filling out an application. So I guess that leaves only the other option and I'm sure you will fail at that too.


Try anger management because it was only a small mistake that Valve would of made up by mailing you a check for any units bought at Greenlight prices even though the game was at completed prices.

This guy's an idiot, but I honestly feel bad for his partner. Poor bastard just sunk some years of his life into his dream project only to have it snatched away from him due to a stupid move from his idiot friend.
