Fire_Kame -- the downvotes in what moose voted, I believe, is more intense jealousy of people with the purchasing power to steer the economy. The internet was the last bastion of power for them...and Gaben just proved that actually even that is decided by money.
Fire_Kame -- notwithstanding the anecdote moose posted, the conversation looks like it is being handled pretty maturely.
rockz -- Because Gabe is awesome. Mad respect for the guy. He's losing money on this plan but he's doing it because he thinks it's the right thing to do.
Fire_Kame -- i don't even know why he thought it would be a good idea to engage them in conversation at this point.
rockz -- sometimes the reddit hive mind can be idiotic. Charging for mods is a really good idea. The modder has to find the right price for their mod. Usually that should be $0.
