Pissed off people are saying mean things on the internet, so naturally pissing them off more will calm everything down.

I can't even find humor in this stuff, it's just depressing.

not to mention blacking out steam will do what exactly? prevent people from using the multiplayer function of games?

Sure that would be annoying, but wouldn't stop me from playing games.

I can still play steam games offline, that just shows you how little people like that actually know.

Not to mention are these people going to pay valve for the thousands of irate customers they have to deal with? or loss of sales that can occur?

doubtful at best.

Perhaps that's the play, I mean surely it would just be shrugged off by more victimization, if it were to occur in that path

NOTE:I'm not saying the harassment is ok or nonexistent, but rather that, victimization has been used a lot within the timeframe of the controversy

The problem with restraining speech is, who gets to set the rules? If it's only okay in a certain time or place, who gets to say what time and what place?

Because this is what they're left with. They accuse people who play video games of being whiny children, and then they go ahead and throw a temper tantrum when they fail to enact sweeping change through calling people names on the internet. They're like my little sister when she was eight, the only difference is that she actually grew out of it.
