"Just because Valve is a corporation does not mean Gabe and the other owners would get off scott free."
Well here is a question, is Valve a limited corporation? It sure as hell could mean that. As long as their was no criminal negligence/intent on their part.
BTW, were those individuals contractors or actual employees. Cause employees are shielded from liability stemming from their employer....at least in most countries with labour laws.
"yes they are rich, but not super rich, and it still sucks it happened to them, no matter the economics."
good. you see my point. and I always did see yours...just like to take things from multiple angles. here is another one to chew on: I am not going to feel sorry for a millionaire who might not be making his next million right away. I know of a lot harder working people who make a hell of a lot less money and keep plugging away day in and day out doing jobs they hate, getting dirty, getting hurt etc...only to have to work at least 20 years to make their first million (before taxes). Sorry if I seem calous, but there are much more deserving people of my sympathy. I will say that sucks, i feel for you. But I am not going to lose sleep over it or pray about it or turn down a dollar to a homeless guy cause Gabe might need it.
