Dude these people do it to themselves, I knew this guy who bought gta 5 like 3 times just to grief people, he was always pissed at the Company Rockstar, cause he said that their game never goes on sale...Never a break for the Idiots' who hack and cheat, screw em'. You sound like a hacker that got burned, I've never cheated and I never would for any reason, why would you? It just ruins the game for everybody, I guess if you're that bored with your life, become a big-Brother or Sister, volunteer down at the Local Soup-line.
Were you talking to me when you said "you sound like a hacker that got burned." If so, then let me teach you some understanding, the post I wrote was defending the integrity of attempts made by Valve to stop hackers as it's a black mark on their reputation every time someone hacks in a Steam game. Secondly, I don't care if you did or did not cheat and thank you for the advise, I won't be taking it as I'm very capable of making my own decisions.
Now, if your reply was NOT referred to me and was addressed to the first post, ignore everything that I've said in the first paragraph and my advise to you is you'd maybe want to hit reply for the first post and not my post. I can understand if it's your first time using this service. Have a good one. Cheers.
There's always the risk of defame. Many people don't like Steam, with news like this, they'll be motivated to promote Steam as being an unreliable source of digital gaming. What Valve makes in a few thousands (through account bans), it risks in hundreds of thousands...maybe millions in legitimate money and gamer's. Two sides to a coin and multiple angles.
