Steam e-mail from Gabe Newell

Found this in my inbox today -

Quote:
Subject:Steam
From:Gabe Newell <[email protected]>
Date:Wed, 07 Jul 2004 10:44:10 -0800
To: Me

Hi.

Your Steam account, hasn't logged into Steam in the last 30 days.

As part of our customer service efforts, we're polling inactive accounts to find out why they haven't been used. It could be that you've created multiple accounts, and that you've just been using a new one to login to Steam. In other cases, there is some technical problem that is keeping people from playing, and we're super-interested in finding and fixing those problems.

So I would appreciate it if you would visit the page below and fill out the form.

http://www.steampowered.com/area=dormant&account=.................

Since this is an unsolicited email asking you to click on a URL, you may have security concerns. You can always verify the authenticity of any email from me by contacting me at [email protected].

Thanks for your time and consideration,
Gabe Newell
CEO, Valve
Any one else recieved one ?

The e-mail addy they are referring to is the Steam account on my other PC (Stringy).

Funny thing is though is that this account has been used in the last week since i bought the router. Got a VAC message saying 'Cannot find player', and had to set that PC to use another port for Steam to be seen correctly. The message went away so never worried any more about it, until that e-mail.

Gave them the feedback they wanted in a long post in the comments box. I also asked nicely if they could give us the E3 2004 Bink vids over Steam and to shift their arses in getting HL2 out the door. It's worth a try, but I doubt anyone will actually read my comments let alone the 'manbot' who sent the mail in the first place !!

I was able to access the page, wasnt hard to guess what the xxxxxxxx was. Not that you can do much but someone may use it for evil.

FYI the xxxxxxxxx is not my forum Nick.

So if you did access that account using my nick, then it's not me.
