@Wolpaw left Valve so I can now insult him freely without damaging the company's reputation. He's a comic genius and a true original.— Marc Laidlaw (@marc_laidlaw) February 17, 2017
Wolpaw had worked at Valve since 2004. News of his departure originated today from another former Valve employee, Mark Laidlaw, who left Valve last year.
