Half-Life 2 = Fool's Gold

A post to the HL2Fallout Forums purportedly from Valve's Gabe Newell raised a bit of a ruckus by predicting that a Half-Life 2 gold announcement would be coming Monday (thanks Borgie). A subsequent update on Shacknews, however, reveals that this post was faked, and not actually from Gabe. We are now prepared to land; Please return your stewardess to her original upright position.

How can people say that this isn't Gabe's fault?

not that I need to defend the guy but what about the guy who made the post? he doesnt deserve some anger? or worse yet, how about HL2.net sending this out to every gaming site as legit? Given all the BS related to HL2 you'd think the powers that be at HL2.net would , at the very least, confirm this by emailing Gabe himself.

Lastly, I still have to laugh at just how angry/upset ppl are getting over a game. Time for a reality check.
