Security isn't a black and white thing. There are varying degrees of security and most people are willing to sacrifice some degree of freedom to attain some degree of security. This doesn't make them unreasonable. It makes them practical. It's why you choose to live in a society bound by laws and regulations. If you want complete freedom, you need to become a hermit and live in the woods, desert or some other remote location far away from civilization. I'm pretty sure you aren't a hermit living in the woods or desert so really, you're just being a hypocrite.

Also, how am I ignoring you? I've addressed every one of your points and refuted them with undeniable facts. That's why your argument is poor. If you can present an argument I can't soundly refute, then you'll have a good argument. Your personal tastes are all well and good but they don't support the arguments you're making. You may not like DRM or Steam but that doesn't change the fact that Steam has had a beneficial impact on PC gaming and that most people embrace it.

You act like Steam is worthless because Steam games still get cracked. However, DRM is not the sole purpose of Steam and it's not the reason why people use it. As I've stated many times already, people use Steam because of the benefits it offers. Having a legal copy of a game on Steam is much more convenient than having a pirated copy. I speak from experience. That's the reason why Steam is so successful. It makes legal copies more appealing than pirated copies, something that no standalone DRM has ever accomplished.
