Then perhaps the title of your thread should reflect this instead of "Valve Sucks." What would happen if I went to a console-related forum and posted a thread intitled "NINTENDO SUCKS!" just because a certain game won't run in progressive scan mode on my 3 year old TV? Yea, I'd have to equip my "flameproof vest +3" to not get burned. Stay far FAR away from World of Warcraft or any MMORPG if you can't stand outages that last a few minutes. Considering what they are doing with Steam, outages are to be expected. I'm sure they've got Terabytes worth of data being streamed through their servers on a weekly basis. Just be lucky that they can recover from a crash in a few minutes instead of having the entire system be down for days while they troubleshoot.
