    A friend of mine emailed Gabe recently about the two L4D2 boycotters being flown out to Valve to play L4D2.

    In typical Valve fashion they replied humorously.

    So now he's trying to raise up enough money to fly Both Gabe and ErikJ out to Australia.

    Currently as of this post he's up to $375.75 with a very generous donation of $100 from Robin Walker.

    Haha just looked on the blog site and saw this in the donation log:

    Ross submits his two cents
    A feller named Ross has submitted $0.02 for our consideration. I hope this doesn't make Shawn mad.

    It would be great if they were flown to our fine country. Everyone needs a break from America every once in a while. :3

    Wait so I dont really know the whole story. So I know 2 people got flown to Valve since they were part of the boycott. But what is with this guy? He is just doing a campaign that's is supposedly good or something?

    Basically, he's a bit of a Valve fan, sending e-mails to Gabe and the like. However, he never got an invite to visit Valve. Enter the L4D2 boycott, enter the leaders of said boycott into Valve HQ, enter that email in Gabe's inbox. So, now he's raising money to give Gabe and Erik two tickets to his home country, presumably to show off his custom L4D campaign and/or to try to blag a trip back to Valve HQ.

    This idea is made of win.
