Comment Re:what is the time out for steam? (Score 1) 581

I'm not sure if it varies from game to game, but I've got steam on my current PC and the old PC that it replaced. For kicks and giggles, I fired the old PC up (not connected to network/internet) and was able to play the Steam games (Batman Arkham Asylum/Arkham City/Dragon's Age/Etc...) without any hassle beyond the 'Play Offline' prompt. The last time that PC was turned on was over a year ago.

Except there is a difference between "I, personally, disagree with your bigoted hate speech and choose to spend my money with artists that support gender/race/ethnic equality" and "I think what you are doing is morally/ethically wrong and choose to support initiatives that deny you equal rights and opportunities." That's especially true when the latter is couched in rhetoric designed to dehumanize a specific segment of the population.
