So apparently they think because time passed people will warm up to it, sure thing

“In our own games—DOTA, Team Fortress, and Counter-Strike—we have a huge number of people who are making content (which isn’t much different from a mod) who can then sell that and make a living. That’s really important,” he said.
“People who make stickers in Counter-Strike, or item sets in DOTA, or who play professional Counter-Strike or DOTA, or who make mods—we think of all those as part of the same group of people, who are creating value for our online communities,” he added. “It’s all user-generated stuff. Even people just playing games are adding value. And we feel like people should be compensated for that value, whether it’s through dollars or item drops. We need to be the people who are making sure that value is being compensated for appropriately. We think people getting paid is really important.”

If Valve wants to pay modders, then THEY should come up with a plan for THEM to pay modders. Leave players out of it.

At this point Valve pushing "paid mods" and "user generated content" just basically third party DLC, money has gone to their head in the worst way.

Think of it this way, if Valve do make a Half-Life 3 or Left 4 Dead 3, get ready to see this in it.
