Question Are we getting free games? [reference to fake email]

I heard Valve are giving away free copies of Portal 2 cause of this little hacking situation. I'm not sure if it true or not, anyone know if it's actually happening?


UPDATE:

Everyone that joined Steam prior to the breach is being granted the entire Steam catalogue, since they weren't able to post on the forums for 5 days!

There's a fake email from Gabe Newell going around about how they're going to give out free games because the forums were down for a few days.

The source code to everything valve related will show up in our emails tomorrow, as an apology for having to wait 5 days before we can post in the steam forums again.
