But his emails!

NOTE: No, I won't provide you with the URL of the article, as that would mean giving them clicks/money, thus defeating the purpose.

Let's set this straight, there's no such thing as a successful, long-lived, non-evil corporation. Is Steam evil? I'd never doubt that, but at least it saves its evil for its employees and business parters while treating its customers to affordable prices, so you can say without fear of being wrong, that Steam is factually LESS evil than the competition (don't even get me started on EA and MS).

Having said this, one would have thought that one Cheeto Mussolini and one round of French Elections later, people would know better than to fall for this kind of smear campaigns. Protip: Whenever you see a scandalous note related a public figure, ask yourself WHO WILL PROFIT FROM THIS (Spoilers: MS already tried to de-facto abolish Steam once when they were debuting their online store, and both EA and Ubi would be tickled pink to remove the "odious middleman").

Also, if said note doesn't examine the incident from all angles (including what the competition is up to), then you can be sure there's money behind that piece of "journalism."

So yeah, Polygon, I see what you did there.
