OK, internet, we officially don't get it. You piss and moan about being nickel-and-dimed to death on every piece of downloadable unicorn armor, but then you'll rally around a dude in Australia and raise 3,000 bucks for him to fly Valve's Gabe Newell and Erik Johnson out to see his Left 4 Dead campa...
