SCS Software Dev vs Valve

Tomáš Duda's Twitter feed has posts showing that the SCS Software (Euro Truck Simulator) developer had his Steam Community, Steamworks Partner, and Steam OpenID access revoked by Valve for a year after using a Steam scripting tags vulnerability to make a community announcement do the Harlem Shake, saying this is something he'd previously reported to Valve. There's a post about this from Tomáš in this reddit thread: "Short version of what happened: <script> tags were allowed in community announcements. We were talking about weird Steam's HTML parsers in the #steamdb channel, and then Harlem Shake happened. Blame xPaw, Marlamin and Gran PC, of course." Thanks Joao.
