  • Flame or insult other members
  • Bypass any filters
  • Abuse or encourage abuse of the Reputation, or Post Reporting Systems
  • Post personally identifiable information (i.e. name, address, email, phone number, etc.)
  • Bump threads
  • Derail a thread's topic
  • Post links to phishing sites
  • Post spam (i.e. +1, 10char, rickrolls) or Re-post Closed, Modified, Deleted Content
  • Repetitively post in the incorrect forum (example: trade requests belong in trading forum)
  • Openly argue with a moderator

Off-Limit Topics/Replies

Do not post any topics/replies containing the following:

  • Porn, inappropriate or offensive content, warez or leaked content or anything else not safe for work
  • Any discussion of piracy will result in a permanent ban from the Steam Community including, but not limited to:
    Cracks
    Key generators
    Console emulators
  • Cheating, hacking, game exploits

  • Racism, discrimination
  • Drugs and alcohol
  • Religious, political, and other “prone to huge arguments” threads

No Backseat Moderating

Let the moderators do the moderating. Backseat moderating is when people who are not moderators try to enforce the forum rules. If you see a person breaking the rules, take advantage of the Report () button or simply ignore the offensive post(s) or thread.

Report Posts to Moderators

Should you observe a fellow Community member breaking these rules please report the post by clicking the Report () button located on every post.

Repeated Offenders

Repeated offenders of the above rules and guidelines will be banned from the Steam Community. Any moderator has the ability to ban a user for violating the rules at their discretion.

"...but I'm not running up and down the subway slapping the iPhones out of their hands."

Had a good laugh at that. Thanks for the link.

Great read, thank you.

I'm always astounded at the entitlement I find on these forums and the vitriol spewed.

These kids under 25 seem to have some weird sense that the deserve whatever price they dictate, and have no realization that there are REAL people behind avatars.

I’ve appreciated your professional responses to a lot of the hate in these forums and if money wasn’t so tight at the moment I’d buy your game just because of it (I’ll wish list this later and maybe buy it later). Keep on making games dude, screw the haters too lazy to get off their butts and learn how to code.
Yes he is the Dev and I am a moderator as well, if you have questions you can ask me as well. Please also refer to the rules above about posting rules in the forums.

Thanks!

Here's another good article, ironically from Kotaku of all places

http://kotaku.com/how-not-to-complain-to-a-developer-1505848316

It's somewhat disheartening that the bile and vitriol from the old Usenet days hasn't changed at all

Indeed. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Survey: Online trolls are 'everyday sadists'
So that research study[edition.cnn.com] just came out.
taytothief Feb 12 @ 3:41pm 
How is this relevant to Line Of Defense? Can users open threads linking to studies which have absolutely nothing to do with Line Of Defense?
Also, how would you describe a troll Mr. Smart?

It's in a general discussion forum. It is relevant, given the number of trolls we've banned here.

Stop trolling please. Thanks.
taytothief Feb 12 @ 4:21pm 
How am I trolling, exactly?
dsmart  [developer] Feb 12 @ 4:36pm 
Sorry, I wasn't referring to YOU about trolling. It was a general statement.
