Yea trading an account is not the same thing as trading games. I'd be trading away 95 games in total.

That's because you are either a dumbfuck with no foresight then or because you never intended to trade games in the first place. Doesn't really matter. You claimed that it is impossible to sell Steam games which is simply a dumbass statement because the opposite is true. It's not my fault that you are wrong and that you suck, dude.

Plus if they found out that it was shared or traded, they could shut down the account.

Yep. Very likely to happen. Just like all those MMO developers and publishers who really care a lot about the secondary market. Oh wait...

This has what to do with the activation and install limit DRM again? Oh yea, nothing. Game is still on the account. What's next? Limited account logins before they expire, just to make sure the account isn't shared? Christ you are an idiot.

The game might be on the account and you might be able to download the game but whether you can play the game is then determined by the activation and install limits since SecuROM becomes active the moment you launch the game's executable. We have two different things here. Your right as a Steam customer to preload/download the game whenever you wish and then on the second layer we got the protected game. If you share or trade your Steam account someone with a different computer and different hardware will have access to the game. This is when SecuROM's limitations begin to matter.

Come on. Are you really that retarded? This isn't rocket science. You are giving me the impression as if you are the other 50% of the people that Riccitiello was referring to when he said that half of the anti-DRM people don't even have a fucking clue what they are fighting against in the first place. It is outright stunning that you couldn't wrap your little brain around this simple concept why SecuROM is on Steam games. I hope I explained it sufficiently now. If not yell and I'll see if I can draw up a retard version in Paint or something in case the letter version is too hard for you to comprehend.
