What exactly happens when you're "banned" from Steam?

Do you lose access to everything you paid for?

I've always wondered this too, probably says something in the user agreement thing.

It's kind of like if a volcano erupted and melted your entire video game collection.

You can't buy or add new games but you still have access to all your old stuff.

This - as long as you're not doing anything shady like trying to sell your account or letting other people use your account you have nothing to worry about. Cheating in an MP game will get you a VAC ban from the MP mode for that game, but you'll still be able to access all your games just fine.
