It's funny because the same people who take part in the ARG are the same people who give loads of money to TF2/Dota2/CSGO's fake economy and ensures that Valve doesn't have to do anything interesting or good to make money.
you're mad because the "secret" got out and your precious badge is not as rare as you thought, just like summer sale when people got mad when yowhs took shitloads of people to the 100mill badge while the reddit rooms kept getting nuked.
