That article had alot of doublespeak and straw manning that seems to boil down to "Bad Reviews are harassment, Steam should get rid of them and only show the good reviews." The comments are filled with the same problem glasses wearing yes men nodding their heads and talking about how Gamers are evil sexist shitlords who only want to remove women from gaming. I do give props to Jeremy Eden and Chris Simpson who seem to be the only sane voices in that mess of a comment section.

Still though, a strong push at Steam is something to be worried about. The discussion boards already goes up in flames when devs start deleting and banning things, imagine if Steam as a whole did that. Another frontline in the war is starting to emerge, we need to be prepared to fight it on Steam with the fury we did Paid Mods.

The article read to me as a job application. "Steam needs to be moderated and only we can moderate it." Unfortunately, there are some higher-ups at Valve that are sympathetic to the SJW cause, so I'm afraid it's only a matter of time.

It's also interesting how they note in the article that perhaps PC gaming wasn't worth saving because it's unmoderated and free unlike console systems which are closed in, which shows you the type of society SJWs actually prefer.

You know, I see that too now that you've mentioned it. Falls back to SJW trying to position themselves in power before shitting on whatever they're suppose to be running.

Someone needs to tell these censors about how successful the Christian right was at keeping gay people off of TV.

Those who forget history and all that jazz...

I got banned from the disscussion forums december past for Towerfall. All I did was compliment the dev on working an Anita skin into the game, right down to the big stupid hoop earings. I thanked him for providing me with a way to beat the ever loving shit out of her on a daily basis. He banned me for "trolling" even tho I said he did a great job.

That said I trolled around nto posting on the trfall disscussions for a while and the dev is just one fo those problem glasses wearing fucktards, to lazy to even TRY to attempt online MP for the game, which is soley focused on the fucking MP.

Fucking author didn't give a single example of anything. When folks start throwing around terms like "trolls" and "harassers" they better back that shit up with some examples. What they're almost always talking about are people who don't agree with them.

I've been on Steam since the very fucking beginning. I'm a critic of Valve and Steam, but one thing I'll say--this author is a fucking idiot. My account is literally 13 years old and I have never once been "harassed" or "trolled" on Steam, nor have I stumbled across any content that I felt should be censored.

FFS, who are all these people who are getting harassed and trolled online? I post some controversial stuff and get attacked for it (here on Voat) but who the fuck cares? Why would I give a shit? Sure, there are a lot of assholes in the world, but I'm not dismissing them all as "harassers" or "trolls." They're generally just people who disagree with me and are too stupid to argue their point so they resort to juvenile bullshit. Why would anyone worry about it? True fact: very few words posted on the internet are really "offensive." They might be uninformed, stupid, moronic, etc., but don't get all righteously indignant because somebody posts something you disagree with.

It's people who got their 'games' onto Steam Greenlight who are assmad that no one will buy their 'artistic' pieces of shit.

Well there gonna have a bad time, Valve don't listen to good ideas let alone bad ones. "what's that you want us to get mods for the forums and only have hand picked reviewers" because that really worked for game trailers, kotaku and ign. You really can't make this shit up.

Gabe newell is not a bad guy, nor is he dumb.

This may be the logic behind not listening to people. He probably understands that once you listen to the smart ones, you will then have to listen to the crazy ones next.

So it is just easier and better to ignore everyone.

I agree, I wasn't trying to bash Valve for not listening to good ideas, I was just trying to point out that this article is a disgustingly bad idea and wouldn't be given a second thought at Valve HQ.

It's an idea that's always pushed by those who think they'll get put in those positions and would immediately abuse it for their own purposes.

Based on some of the things they mentioned, such as "being harassed for tweeting SJW views", my guess is that most of this is about games like Siege of Dragonspear that were made by self professed SJWs and were completely shit games that received terrible reviews due to the game just being shit.

The commenter on that article sound like they are part of some kind of cult, at no point was there even a smidgen of evidence to the "over toxicity" in steam. This is just another attempt to gain control over another platform.
