Get over yourself.
Sure thing, lil' AC buddy, i'll get right on that.
It's always a good time to bash DRM. While this may have only happened briefly, you absolutely should not lose access to anything. You shouldn't have to run Steam to play your games, either. Valve should scrap the DRM and turn Steam into a platform to buy games (like it partly is now) and keep all the additional functionality. The only change would be that you wouldn't have to run games from Steam.
Would that be nice? Sure. Would it increase piracy of their game catalog even more than there is now? Probably - I mean, take a look at TPB, pretty sure you could get most of the GOG catalog there, if not the entire thing.
DRM-free like GOG is awesome (and i've bought about 45 games from them also), but I can't really blame Valve or the publishers that sell on Steam for not wanting to open up another piracy avenue.
Do you have any solid evidence that there's a majority that wants Steam's DRM gone for reasons other than getting free stuff?
