Other than the comment about banning games that are straight up trolling (which is semi-vague and subject to some interpretation and could hypothetically be abused) most of that sounds pretty good.

Giving users the power to manage what content they see is a good thing. More sites should head in that direction and build tools to accomplish that.

True, but probably necessary. If they drew a bright red line, trolls would turn to the time-honored game of "I'm not touching you!".

Not only that, but giving people the ability to manage their own stuff is straight up common sense. Cheaper for the companies, too. That they don't all do it begs the question of why.

The reason Valve's throwing away the curation of Steam is because of the backlash over the Waifu Holocaust back in June. Other platforms may follow along, but only after the consequences for Steam become clear.

You know (((why))). It's all about controlling public narrative. The only reason that I can think of, for valve making this move now, is lost revenue from less censor-happy competition.

The question is will some titles be buried unless specifically searched for?
