Can someone explain why they need a experimental pyschologist for left 4 dead 2?
I know this is relevant to l4d2, not l4d1, but im still banned by the hatemachine known as chet faliskz in the l4d2 gamehub.
Seriously can someone explain this to me?

Why do they need behavior and experimental pyschologists for a game that never had any anti griefing measure built in?
It makes me wonder if the 3 month long ddos campaign against me wasnt just the work of a grand social experiment on valves terms?
I beleive it.
