I'm kind of disconnected of what's going on with xREDIRECT but from what I've read it isn't working.
I tried some commands to check if I could trigger a connect and this worked:

Code:
snip
Again, sorry If i'm saying bullshit.

Edit: i have just read about this issue and I'm now aware that this was already found.

I personally have never liked this command, but I understand its benefit. Too bad it got abused.

And have you talked with other admins? Because in that [snip] it seems that there isn't activity on fixing the thing and as the information of circunventing is already spread, its useless to just ban it on alliedmodders.

No one here can control what happens on other sites (that's the reason why we have to handle all those non-steamers too), but at least here we can control what happens.
It may does not help, but supporting it also makes no sense.

But that page is oficial from Valve. The point is: if in the bug report page of Valve, circumventions are disclosed and people that uses that information for the worst is using it, isn't it useless to forbid that information here?
