I thought IPSs made upstream slow so users don't create servers, rather than being a limitation of DOCSIS.

Censorship the likes of which Steam has never even imagined!

Trolls troll as they are anonymous, hidden away in some room where noone knows the whereabout of. People also act a bit different in cars for much the same reason, but not so much face to face.

Does this affect censoring adult content (black bars)? No black bars shown with graphic violence, such as whacking someone's head off with a shovel.

When the heck are they going to make passive 3D TVs again? Active 3D was the headache inducer, not passive.

Quantum Link was the internet before the internet. BBSs was Steam before Steam, complete with forums.

I suppose playing a zombie is like playing an animal devoid of morals.

No confusion, strawman claim was just a red herring, crux of the question was without any other issues, would a game like Active shooter would be allowed on Steam (focus was on a red herring, the crux was avoided.) Murdering innocent civilians is allowed in Postal and GTA series probably because that isn't the mission of the game, but a possible activity a player can do.

Zombies are trying to kill you, unlike students, so that's self defense. SW sounds like a battle as suggested by the name. Not familiar with those other 2, they sound just as bad as active shooter though.

Ya, the strawman accusation seems to be a red herring (I don't think strawman can even be used on a what if statement anyhow.)

A problem with active shooter is that the shooter is basically given a mission to mow down students.

Contrast with say Postal 2 where you're not given a mission to kill anyone (well at least most of the missions that I know of.) How you conduct business to complete that mission, however, is entirely up to you. I suppose you could complete many (probably not all) the missions relatively peacefully. Similarly many missions in the GTA series. I wonder what would happen if GTA or Postal had a school full of students you could shoot up, doesn't seem much different than mowing people down at the beach.

Valve mentioned copyrighted material as one of the reasons, but never mentioned the sensitive subject of school shootings.

AFAIK a what if statement doesn't even constitute an argument, 'strawman' or otherwise.

Interesting that the level editing is just like it was in the 1990s, connected 6 sided convex polyhedron building blocks. Then it is converted to a Unity map using a conversion tool.

So what if someone put up a similar game with original assets?

I suppose I've been under the false impression that where it snows you don't get severe heat waves.

Wow I guess the west coast has a lucky cool trend compared to the rest of the US. As far as I remember it's never gone over 75deg or so all month, and always down to low 60s/high 50s at night.

When watching the 600 hypermile YouTube video they mentioned that it went down to 70 at night in the mile high city of Denver, that surprised me as well.
