Default Steam Sucks!

What is the deal with steam? I can't connect. It will let me change my password all day long but I can't get on. I have made 3 seperate accounts at this point with no luck. WHAT GIVES?

You make sure your not blocking its ports with a router or firewall? I never had any issues with Steam not connecting. I love it, think every publisher should team up with valve and use it!

Ditto.

Love it, never had problems.

If you have problems, you can request a pass reset or something using their support.

I mean it was working flawlessly and now it does not work any more. I was kind of hoping for something other than name calling. What should I expect when 90% of the gaming community is under 15.

Only one person here resorted to name calling... so don't go running to mommy yet.
