    Mid UK. Lift a few rocks, eventually you will find me.
    I don't have have a bandwidth problem, although this is cool for those that use the kind of ISP where this is needed.

    I would prefer and option to limit the time a server shows advertising before one can join a game. (TF2) 30 seconds in some cases. Pinion can crash and burn. I don't even see the ads they are blocked by my hosts file.... I Still have to wait 30 seconds though. Pretty soon my black list will need external storage. I guess this isn't Steams fault but they could stop servers bringing back up TMOTD when continue is clicked.

    Just 'cos it's legal don't make it right.
