Why the hell are they concerned with Steam, when you can just type porn in google and you immediately get hardcore porn.

Because TRIGGERED! Duh! Laugh

It's because the conservative Bible-thumpers still think only children play video games, when the average gamer's age is closer to 40 than not.

*sigh* Wrong again. Bible-thumpers huh? Hehehe, okay. I'll use that. It does sound better than Cutter's "religous nuts". Bible-thumpers don't think "only" children play video games. They probably have a more realistic view like, people of all ages play video games. And guess what? Some of them are actually children.

I don't want to get off on a tangent about whether porn is good or bad like some people are trying to do. Yes, I think it is a bad thing but that's not the point of my post for the most part. My only point was that the content filtering system is there only to make people feel good. It's going to keep children/under-aged adults from getting to that porn about as well as our immigration laws are keeping illegal immigrants from entering the country. It's an excuse to sell porn in spite of the inevitable truth that it will not accomplish it's intended purpose. Steam thinks I'm 118. I tell it that every time it warns me about some content in a game trailer possibly having "content not suitable for some viewers". If we allowed kids to use the honor system to verify their age we might as well start allowing it for the purchase of cigarettes and alcohol.

Amongst all the mature, intelligent adults I know porn most certainly does not have a negative stigma attached to it. The only people it has a negative stigma with are dumb religious kook types and hardcore feminazis. And there's no such thing as "porn" anymore. There's every kind of adult entertainment for every sort of taste under the sun now. Most people I know don't really care for the industry standard 'yeah baby' porn anyway. If you have a fetish for it, it's out there. There's nothing abnormal or wrong with it, it's just a different sort of kink.
You only live once, so get your freak on and enjoy it.


All the adults you know, huh? LOL. And you guys talk about porn regularly I'm guessing. Do you share masturbation secrets?

Keeping "porn" from bleeding into all other areas of life has nothing to do with religious beliefs. I don't want to see Penthouse magazine at the checkout stand everytime I buy groceries. There is a such thing as "porn". Your attempt to redefine reality for everyone else by thinking they'll feel ashamed if you throw out a couple of buzzwords like "religous nuts" isn't going to change the negative stigma of porn. I would be ashamed to openly discuss it with any intelligent beings in a public setting. Your words show you completely ignored the substance of my post anyway and "got off" (oops, heheh) on a tangent of "PLEASE, DON"T TAKE MY PORN!". We all get it Cutter. Your a big supporter of "porn". Good for you. I respect the unashamedness you have and your take-no prisoners stance of enjoying. So, enjoy! Just please keep it off the damn grocery checkout stands, FFS!

If they start offering porn games it'll eventually be porn movies as well.

And then eventually they'll sell sex toys, and then regular toys, and then home appliances!!~~~ Where will it end?!

Nobody buys porn movies anymore you old fart Lots of unwashed weebs to buy porn visual novels, however.

You're right, actually. I was born 1900-01-01. So, I'm about 118 years old now, according to Steam according to my Steam account anyway.

The problem is that the content filtering will stop about the same number of children from getting to the adult content as our U.S. Laws are keeping out illegal aliens from entering our country.

It makes people feel good, having a content filtering system (and illegal immigration laws) but they don't really do anything in a real-world scenario. Because they're both easily bypassed and there is no punishment for doing so.

@Beamer and HoSpanky,

I know I'll be attacked like a sheep among a pack of wild wolves but...what the hell...

The arguments, "there's much worse" and "there's way more" aren't really the best ways to justify making porn accessible via Steam are they?

The way I look at it, Gabe Newell is already a billionaire. How much more money does he need? You want to get into the porn business now also?

I guess Steam is no longer just a PC gaming service. If it's expanding beyond that into a porn service it's a little sad to me. If they start offering porn games it'll eventually be porn movies as well. Do we really need another porn service on the Internet? Like there aren't enough already.

I know Steam isn't exclusively an environment for children but porn has a negative stigma attached to it, period. I don't want it bleeding into every area of my life just because it's "okay" for adults. Kids can lie on the Internet easier than they can in real life. You need to present a valid id to purchase cigarettes and alcohol. So, that argument is pretty weak also. It basically justifies Steam's efforts to prevent access to porn for minors by enforcing age verification which we all know is a complete joke on the Internet.

No, I'm a longtime gamer. And this has nothing to do with supply and demand. Thank you for playing.

Ummm, the article is not about supply and demand, you're right. It was a response to your comment about the sustainability of selling "used" games. For some odd reason you didn't quote that part. *sigh*. Funny thing is, your arguing against something that even Bethesda is now defending. The sale of "used" games.

Game Over. Thanks for playing though.

I guess I am stupid. Please explain.

The media you buy a game on is just media and in the case of a CD, that media is worth less than a dollar.

When you buy a game you're paying for the experience. You can't then finish the game and turn around and sell that experience to someone else. That's copyright infringement and it's theft.

Let me see if I can make it clearer. If you buy a game, finish it and then sell it to a chain of 10 friends who each buy it and sell it in turn, then 10 people have played the game.

However the development team only gets credit for 1 copy. Nobody gives a shit about the publishers, but the used game market fucks over the development teams. These teams get paid based on royalties, but the used game market steals royalties.

Does Gamesteal really deserve to resell a game 10 times? Really? Do you think that kind of thing is sustainable.

Like I said, the nuances of this argument are too complex for most people because people are stupid. Over the long term this activity results in developers getting screwed.

But, of course, who gives a shit when you can get a game for $10 off!

Morons.

Are you a developer? Is that why your putting this philosophical view forward? The laws of supply and demand don't ask the question of whether anything is "sustainable". The laws of supply and demand aren't moral laws that ensure justice or "equality" always prevail.

You make statements of opinion as though they were fact.

Let's say that I buy a game that I finish and I never sell it. But I loan it out to friends who want to play it 1 at a time to finish. Does that make it any better? In your eyes the answer is no. You want every single person to pay each time for the experience. You probably even want a single buyer who watches a DVD twice to pay per viewing, isn't that only fair?

Televisions should be turned into single-seated private viewing boxes. Big-Screen televisions should be banned and illegal because if I pay $4.00 to watch a movie On-Demand only 1 person should get that experience for the $4.00 viewing fee, right?

People are still making movies today and they are still making games today. So, I hope that answers your question about sustainability. Gabe Newell is a billionaire. And you can't discount Quake 1 by $10.00 when you can actually own the license to play it for the rest of your life, right now, for the low low price of one-dollar and twenty-four cents. And that's with the publishers and developers blessings.

Yeah, this is pretty ridiculous.

They're trying to "stretch" the law (or at least USSC precedent) with a creative interpretation. And they're banking on the fact that most resellers are so small that they aren't willing to litigate the question. It's the epitome of sleazy...

Someone needs to start an online petition that let's people sign-it stating it is their intention NOT to purchase any Bethesda products until a public apology is given. With Eternal DOOM and Rage 2 on the release horizons this could hurt them deeply IF people actually took a stand and upheld their intentions. How utterly ridiculous of Bethesda.

I think, like most other aspects of life, it's the middle-man that would be most scared of litigation. Rich people might not care and poor people would have not much to lose.

If vaccines lead us to the same pots of gold that we found at the end of the anti-biotics and pesticides era's, it's not going to end well. But we'll cross that bridge when we get to it, right. Why worry about it today?
I am beyond baffled by this type of thinking.

What part baffles you? Antibiotic resistance in humans? Super weed resistance in pesticides? Incubation period of CJD being as long as 11-12 years before you even have a clue that you have the disease from eating contaminated meat or getting it through a needle somewhere along life's long journey? Please, explain what part baffles you exactly.

Here I'll help your mind become unbaffled by providing you your first link into understanding just a bit about where antibiotics and pesticides have taken us.

Super Weeds

Prepare thine self to be unbaffled, oh baffled one. Click with courage and educate thy self.

@Cutter,

With all due respect, I think were just gonna have to agree to disagree.

Your comments are just weird. "in spite of the fact that there are some superbugs developing"?????? That's called a ******* "red flag" for those of you who are just tuning in!!! LOL.

So, now that we see what's happening, we just keep going down that road?

Look, I don't think me and you disagree all that much. I got all my shots that schools required when I was a child. But like you, I haven't ever went out and got a flu shot by my own choice and I never will.

You started your post respectfully and then you digressed into "name calling". Oh well, were all guilty sometimes I guess.

Science tells us the Earth has been here 3 billion years. What is it called, carbon dating? By way of extrapolation. Okay, that's a reasonable tool. A reasonable assumption. So, that's the truth for now.

What your own statements should reveal to you, is that there are probably better ways to accomplish the same goals we need to start finding them and stop defending things that are proving not to be ideal.

If farmers would rotate their crops and let their land rest every 7 years we might not need pesticides at all. "But losing a years worth of crops? Hell No. Not gonna give up all that money".

I'm not going into the discussions of polio and tetanus and all that jazz because I haven't invested enough time, research and energy to know enough about it.

If I skip getting a shot out of fear, and you run out and get your shot out of fear, how is fear not controlling both of us? I don't skip everything out of fear.

Why are we even arguing? Me and you both don't get flu shots? We're like brothers now dammit!

You have a lot more faith in vaccines than I ever will.
I don't think vaccines require faith? It's not like no one knows how they work or that they are some great mystery. All you need is a very basic understanding of the underlying science and some lay-person digestible summaries of the peer reviewed studies.
A very basic understanding of the science? Do you know what a scary statement you just made? Scientists study these things for years and years and years and don't always get it right. Unless you have done that, that's all you really have is a very...basic...understanding of something your trusting with your life. I probably couldn't have said it better myself. Are you a scientist or a microbiologist? I'm not, nor will I probably ever be. You get results like they got in 1955 when you have a ...very...basic...understanding...of very complex science.
So, it is really complex, but you completely understand the situation. Congratulations on being a genius, apparently. Rolleyes

Do us and yourself a favor, up the dosage on whatever the meds are you should be taking. Oops. That would probably take some "faith" which you wouldn't have. Oh well...

Your right. It would take faith I don't have. I'm on no meds, I haven't been to the doctor for anything in years. I was sick 8 days straight one time and lived to tell the tale. I don't "run" to the doctor for "another round" of antibiotics everytime I sneeze or cough more than once a week.

I don't understand everything about microbiology, vaccines, viruses, or any other issue related to this discussion. And I make no such claims. Like I said to the other poster who had the decency to respond to me directly, if you believe in vaccines, knock yourself out. Based on my "very basic knowledge" of vaccines and all I know about them from my very limited knowledge, I choose to abstain from them. I'm not here to claim I'm right or wrong. But it's my decision to make. It's right for me.

On the one hand, you have science. On the other hand, you have reality. Science said antibiotics was good. Not so anymore. Science said pesticides were good. Not so anymore. Science says vaccines are still good. Well, some science still says this, anyway. To be continued...

So faith is exactly what your using. Trusting the people who know more than you do, with your life, hoping they get it right.

So I take it you don't trust anyone and don't allow doctors to treat you? Because the reality of life is that there is too much to know. At some point you have to rely on other people who know things you don't. You can, however, with very basic knowledge, know if someone is blowing smoke up your ass. I'm talking about people with the same degrees who have different opinions. How can you as a layman know who is right or wrong?

I don't need a microbiology degree to know that something diluted 30 times is unlikely to have a single molecule of active ingredient. I don't need a physics degree to know that healing crystals don't do shit.

The whole reason conspiracy theorists and wackjobs like yourself exist is because you just assume everyone else is trying to trick you and that the very concept of a fact doesn't exist. We'd still have polio and smallpox all over the place if it was up to people like you.

Fun Fact: People were labelled as being conspiracy theorists and 'wackjobs' when they actually thought their government was recording every email. Until it was proven that....ummmm....their government was recording every email. I'm not sure what they call these people now. Oh well, just a fun fact for those interested.

Allow doctors to treat me for...what...exactly? Did you presume that I have a multitude of diseases? Or are you asking if I go to the doctor every time I cough more than once in a day for another dose of anti-biotics that are now being proven, scientifically, that they were not the "miracle solution" you were looking for?

I disagree with your statement, completely, that you can know whether or not someone is blowing "smoke up yer ass" as you put it, on a topic as complex as this is, when you have two very knowledgeable groups of people explaining things to you from their points of view. The science is very very complex and I've read arguments on both sides. And I know this is hard for a lot of your vaccine junkies to acknowledge on this board especially ...but....ummmm....not everybody who has a microbiology degree supports the idea of vaccines being manna from heaven.

You throw out random facts without acknowledging anything I said about what we are JUST NOW REALIZING after years and years and years of using antibiotics and pesticides thinking they were miracles from Jesus above. IF we're just now learning that antibiotics and pesticides are hurting us more than helping us, why do you still cling so defensively and rabidly to your precious vaccines? You're down 2-0 right now. But your gonna win the last battle, right?

Do you still believe in antibiotics and pesticides as much you do vaccines? Please, tell me. I'm dying to know.

Your comment about me thinking everyone is out to trick is kind of amusing...I guess. No, that's not why I don't have faith in vaccines. There's a lot of reasons I don't have the high level of faith in vaccines like you have but thinking somebody is trying to trick me into getting vaccines is a pretty twisted way of saying it. Vaccines bring in billions of dollars a year for the vaccine manufacturers and that's just a fact. What sells vaccines? Fear of death. Do you think these companies are producing these vaccines all the time out of the goodness of their heart? I just don't believe vaccines have much worth to be honest. They're used indiscriminately much like antibiotics and we all (we I hope we all) know how that one is turning out.

You have lots of faith in vaccines. Good for you! Knock yourself out. Get 1 a week for all I care. To paraphrase Jay Leno, "Get all you want. They'll make more!" They really will! "If you got the money honey, they got your disease!".

To all the other little circle-jerks posting about me and around me like I don't exists, I'll pretend the same for you. You don't exist! Therefore, no response is required.

Your probably a big believer in anti-biotics and pesticides too because we've been using them for years, right? Well, those days are over as well.

https://www.theverge.com/2016/9/9/12859906/evolution-in-action-drug-resistant-bacteria

A quote from the article: "Antibiotics have been a boon to medicine, but their indiscriminate use is creating a global petri dish in which bacteria are mutating, adapting, and then surviving despite our efforts to kill them."

Vaccines have become the most indiscriminate panacea of our time. Trying to make a vaccine to prevent a cold?? LOL. Human bodies that never get sick? Talk about fairy tales.

Took people years, and years, and years to see the true damage these "miracle solutions" have done and are doing to ourselves and our planet. But the big money behind both of these "modern miracles" won't see these solutions going away over night. The point is, what you think is the best solution, may not actually be the best solution.

Seems a waste of money--the reason flu vaccines don't work well (if they work at all, which is doubtful)is because as it spreads, as the flu virus jumps from person to person, it *mutates* every time, making a vaccine for *the* flu strain afflicting most people quite impossible. Each year millions of people in the US get flu vaccinations and each year it seems we have pandemics of flu, anyway--and that's why. The flu vaccine makers simply guess at a particular strain and manufacture the vaccines for *that* particular strain--which would be great if the flu virus *did not mutate* from person to person--but it does and we know it does. The impossibility of a flu virus that works is pretty solid--but like everything else, greed and a willingness to throw away good science for wishful thinking carries the day.

Oh, they could theoretically manufacture a vaccine for your particular strain, but the problem is that a) it would cost a small fortune, and b) the time time it takes to synthesize it would be much longer than the usual 7-10 day flu lasts--in other words, by the time they finished it you would already have recovered from it naturally. It would be possible to cure the common cold the same way--but, again, by the time they manufactured the vaccine for *your* cold you'd already have recovered from it naturally. (this is all old, well-established science.)

I'm a great believer in vaccines, generally--for stuff like small pox, polio, and stuff that doesn't mutate. But the flu vaccine looks like a giant dead end. Like I say, a couple of decades back this was well known--today that knowledge takes a back seat to a lot of bad information. Pharmaceuticals are making lots of $$$ on the scare, but I've seen far more young people ~15-16 years old *dying* of common flu complications these days, and that is something I heard *nothing* about at all when I was that age and we had no flu vaccines at all. Seems the vaccines may well be worsening the flu virus universally, making it more virile--it isn't clear what's going on--except that flu shots are not a panacea for the flu--just more false security of the kind people seem to crave these days. Wish it wasn't so...

"In April 1955 more than 200 000 children in five Western and mid-Western USA states received a polio vaccine in which the process of inactivating the live virus proved to be defective. Within days there were reports of paralysis and within a month the first mass vaccination programme against polio had to be abandoned."

I guess practice makes perfect? You have a lot more faith in vaccines than I ever will. But from your overall perspective it's not blind faith like some people have in vaccines. So, I applaud that.

The worst that can happen is the vaccine kills a lot of people that might not have died otherwise. The delay of time between getting a shot and it's possible final effects are too much of a chance for my liking. Now, if a young child gets a shot and dies 5, 10, or 15 years later who would ever try to blame the vaccine maker? It would be difficult to do. But that point aside, the more serious issue is all the affected people who are or were nothing more than guinea pigs.

I wonder why they stopped doing World Fairs. They look pretty sweet.

What the truckers did sure was nice but hardly heroic. Fucking media clickbait, man.

Agreed, hardly heroic. Think about it. The police shut down the highway. The truckers who did this were probably enlisted/recruited by the troopers by chance because they happened to be going under that bridge on that highway at that time. When your asked by a state trooper for a favor like that, unless your a complete @$$cr4ck, your probably not going to refuse!

Still, they did do a good thing, regardless. Unless we get real philosophical here and contemplate a more gruesome future outcome related to the man who was saved. Suicidal people, sometimes go alone and sometimes they take a whole lotta innocent folks with them first.

And, talk about click bait.

Click-Bait!

Conclusion of the article? "We really don't know anything for sure but drinking might have an unhealthy affect on your oral microbiome. But honestly? We just don't have a ******* clue yet!"

@Redeye9,

Thank God I'm not a clueless person, otherwise, I would have been offended by your comments.
