I really dont get why people get so up in arms over the most non-invasive DRM out there.

Well for one thing your claim it is the most non-invasive is not a fact. For people like me who have no desire to have Steam constantly running on their PC it is in fact very invasive compared to some other DRM methods. Whereas a recent game like Dragon Age 2 requires a one-time online activation to my EA account and can then be run on its own offline whenever I want, Steam requires me to boot up the Steam client every time I want to play. That right there makes Steam more invasive.

People who claim it is the easiest and least invasive DRM method are usually people who have it running all the time and don't have to deal with it's long boot time every time they play a game.

All that aside though I don't really care in the end. DRM free versions of everything are online for when I need them, if I ever do.

Internet and PC neophytes like you crack me up, Velvet boy.

Long boot times? How slow is your PC? Are you running something from the stone age?

Steam *is* the least invasive out there. Plus unlike any other DRM, you can buy games for less than 5 bucks when they are 10x that in retail.

I love laughing at the anti-steam pussy sniffers like you. All the cock-sucking little pansy ass fuckers that think Steam is some boogy man out to rape their virgin assholes.

Fucking pussy.

Nothing drives home a rational point like sprinkling it with profanity. I think you forgot to call him a gay fag and really nail your point.

On no wait, you did. Well done.
