I don't like that you called people at Valve communists ...I think they center themselves about the idea of freedom.

And episode three will be awesome and people will be like :O

Communism doesn't automatically mean anti-freedom. You can work in a communitary environment and still have freedom.

I don't think saying communist is appropriate neither accurate ;)

I don't know from what kind of society you are from, but Valve are literaly communists. Their flat structure allowes them to decide on what to work, how to work and when to work. They have the freedom to choose with who to work, and to what degree. They act as a community, hence the word.

I didn't use the word communism politically, I used it as a mean to explain their work structure. There is a difference! :)

Communism means much more than what the West proclaims as the worst thing possible, when it comes to political structures.

Sounds like you don't know much about how Valve operates, or how USED to operate, or how they think. To speculate, you need to know tha basics, I'm going to link a couple of Behind the Scenes articles that can remedy that.

Also, the fact that you posted in ValveTime, too, makes me think you're looking for readers instead.

PS: Episode Three hasn't been delayed multiple times because there hasn't been an official release date.
