I support paid mods.

Valve recently introduced paid mods, which started a bit of a shit storm and they were quickly rolled back. Since I was in the middle of my relaunch I haven't posted my opinion on this yet.

But others have already said what I think, so let me just quote. Garry Newman wrote a blog post outlining his thoughts, which I agree with. George Broussard summed the negative reaction up nicely:

Critics of paid mods seem to hide behind “the % was unfair” but the reality is “we want our free stuff free forever”. Sorry mod makers.

While Garry used somewhat stronger words:

Valve broke the modding community... by revealing that most of them are cunts.

So my opinion in short:

And the super short version: I support paid mods.
