You must have read it incoherently because nowhere do I blame the install problems on Steam. Mearly that I find it an unnecessary, bloated, intrusive, piece of crap that should not be needed to play the game. What if someone without the internet wanted to play? They do exist.

Well, you have a long rant about things you hate, then turn it into a rant about Steam without giving reasons why you dislike Steam, so they two seem connected.

You do not need to be connected to Steam to play, you merely need to connect once. Yes, people without a net connection may want to play, but the amount is insignificant, and Valve is betting that there are more people that will decide not to pirate due to the difficulty here than will not be able to play due to lack of an internet connection.

It's a smart bet.

You're writing off Valve because the game gave you a short time of frustration while you installed. Ok, fine. We'll enjoy the games, you don't have to. We'll think your reasoning is stupid, but this is the internet - you're allowed to reach rash conclusions for dumb reasons and we're allowed to call you dumb for it.

Music for the discerning:
