Like Things are not going well on Reddit right now, the ownership of the site is currently in an ongoing battle with readers and moderators.. Users are so pissed off at attempts to monetize the site that they are working on various protests, but one of the larger gaming subreddits – r/steam with 1.9 million subscribers – is now my favourite.

And this purpose like computer gamer point outwould become the internet’s premier address for all things steam related. And by that I don’t mean the PC’s preferred showcase and launcher, I mean the steam engines. Steam clouds. Steam tractors, steam powered cars and academic books on steam.
