 From an earlier mail of yours:

 I'm sorry, but claiming others are immune to arguments when you
(intentionally?) ignore the requests to base your statement that steam
is "all about DRM" with something useful, I fail to see your arguments
at all.  It has been shown that there are games on steam that are *not*
DRM encumbered, and steam itself doesn't force it onto games distributed
through it, so your sole "argument" is unfortunately moot.

 You might feel you hare mistreated here, but accusing others of
ignorance when you don't give us your facts is not buying you any
respect for your cause.

 There are people who think otherwise.  Please respect that.
