When added all together, Steam's "minor" inconveniences definitely become pretty damn big. The platform's success is due to how far it's grown and improved, not because gamers are lazy.
So you`re saying that some mad discounts - which is a Walmart-like tactic that can be as well harmful - plus a united collection is bigger than an actual right to own the product you paid for? Stop and think about that for a second, if it`s still true for you, then well, nothing really to discuss furthermore.
Of course we, as humans, are suckers for "convenience". I myself shop in big supermarkets (partially because there`s really no choice left) despite hating their operations - but I don`t lie to myself about that.

It really has nothing to do with the fact that we are lazy, it's the fact we are 100's of miles away from these organizations we are buying games from.
It`s really disheartening to see somebody on the same side of the fence using a lame argument like this. Say, if I hated Sony TV`s for some reason, does that mean I would have to travel to Japan to tell them that? Come on man.
Online protests do work, it`s the one thing the whole social media is good for.
