"Hey, if you want to be able to comment, you first need to spend $5/load $5 onto the wallet" blackmail.
(and since it's none of an online game site's business who I am in real life, what my address is etc., that would mean having to go find a paysafecard or prepaid creditcard just to be able to comment... Maybe if I'm in luck there's still $5 left on an old prepaid creditcard of mine. ) </rant>
That is to prevent spammers and scammers using the community, dont blame steam or the community but blame the scammers and spammers
I do blame Valve for not saying upfront "to comment, you need to have the client installed and have put $5 into your wallet". If so, I wouldn't have bothered making a Steam account until I can't play Shop Heroes well in the browser anymore (if that even happens...) Baiting me in 1 step at a time feels very scammy of Valve and makes me less likely to really use Steam in the future.
