Exactly. More importantly, this has no impact upon your game library; the community features are entirely optional and I like them. The biggest criticism is how slow it is to load the content, which isn't helped when all the assets of a page are reloaded when browsing to new content - it's just not very efficient.
Greenlight is good but when you rate over 500 games the list goes blank and it says you've rated them all. A lot of people have been complaining about it. But I'm glad they've added a fee for game submissions - it will dramatically reduce the number of fraudulent entries and ultra low budget titles that had zero chance of being approved anyway.
