Trolling on the Steam forums is unfortunately a HUGE problem & with developers/publishers often times not even monitoring the forums for games they have released, a lot of the time these trolls are never put in their place & the assault on users will continue indefinitely.  What's worse is when they have done it for so long, that they actually know how to manipulate those they are attacking into overusing the report feature, so the victims of these attacks only become a victim of the punishment rather than those that were causing the problem should anything actually be done about it.

Below is a list of individuals by user ID that I have personally had problems with; while this does not include individuals from perhaps the first decade of my using Steam, it does include recent attacks from these scumbags:

This comment (backup in the next column) appears to be a countermeasure to people pointing out how much of a troll he is, in an attempt to make the complainant look bad rather than him.

The review has been edited a number of times, originally a lot worse before I mentioned it on the forum for the game & he started getting replies to it; I should have made a backup of the review when I first saw it rather than after the 2:34 PM edit (Steam should have edit history on it regardless, which I've made it a point to report to Steam through both his profile & his review, which publicly discloses he purchased it only to trash the developer, then abuse Steam refund policy to get his money back)...

Exploit Theft Report
A part of Ms. Cinnamon's Steam group, started responding on their behalf.  Can't argue with his statements too much, but I do take issue with his statement of saying I lost the card myself, where technically speaking it was Steam that lost the card because they haven't fixed the exploit in nearly 2 years (possibly longer, I only know from experience when I got hit by this exploit during the Christmas sales event directly after using it) since the mobile app became mandatory to avoid trade holds.

This attack was extreme enough that a harassment report was filed against them to Steam.

There was a change in tone after post 9, which appears to have been a backtracking when
they realized I was considering getting legal authorities involved.  Their comments started
becoming heated again in troll post 10 (note that there have been a number of posts since
post 9 that have been fairly civil & are not listed here as they weren't considered as trolling.

Ongoing harassment

Ongoing harassment from the DON'T SCREAM review has gotten particularly bad, enough that I have had to start considering possible legal action against the participants of these attacks, as well as Steam for not stepping in to put a stop to it.  Regardless of a number of reports to Steam on the most extreme attacks in that thread of comments, Steam has not stepped in to put a stop to it.  Around noon on 11/2/2023 (after at least 5 days straight of the attacks), I was considering calling a local officer to discuss the matter with them & to inquire about filing a legal complaint against Steam for their inaction to put a stop against known reported harassment.  As of yet, that call has not been made (probably will be in a few days if it keeps going, especially if it keeps escalating), but I did make a point to compile a log of people that were joining my Twitch channel while this issue continues to escalate, those logs have been uploaded here (this screenshot will be updated as more join while the harassment continues).  Most of the people on this list are expected to be a part of this harassment party coming from Steam, although it's possible there may be a select few that haven't.  Those that were confirmed as being a problem on Steam by matching username ended up being blocked from my channel after I saw their name in my IRC logs, 1 was banned only after I saw they had banned me from their own channel even before I had visited it the first time (making a habit to check channels after they visit mine, if nothing more), keeping moderator notes on Twitch of the time each one showed up in the channel in case it became a problem later, but otherwise not going any further (outside of spending about an hour to compile this list for evidence should it be needed in a criminal/legal case).

UPDATE:  After filing some new reports on Steam today (4 from what I counted, against the newest & major players in that long thread of continued harassment), I noticed that some of those comments started disappearing from it.  Whether those users are actually going to get penalized or not for their actions is still unlikely, but it looks like at least some of their messages are going to get purged.  With any hope, they are going to start seeing the problem with that thread of comments & do something about it in it's entirety (before I decide to have a discussion with my local police department & we have to get in contact with Steam when it's elevated to a legal issue).  Even if the comments are deleted, the evidence of their existence is still listed here for public scrutiny & if they are needed in court.

UPDATE:  After taking a break from the continued anarchy on Steam & trying to recover through rest from what Steam clearly has no interest in putting a stop to, I made a decision before coming back to my PC that Steam's lack of commitment to protect their users from this type of targeted harassment will play another factor into why I won't be purchasing anything else over their platform (even if I am able to get past the upcoming OS cutoff planned to go into effect on the 1st of 2024) until the continuation of it has been resolved (at this point it is unlikely I will come to that determination until into 2024, where the OS cutoff will be in effect anyways).  This continued harassment is now an additional clause for non-purchase on Steam (potentially leading to contact from law officials, which in some cases seems to be the only thing that gets any action, as was the case with PSN user EPICMINECRAFT25 back in 2016).  Only once has an online issue ever gotten to the point where I had to contact law officials to file a criminal complaint against a user & site not taking care of the matter; the second time is upcoming & not against 1 individual, but MANY of them that have responded to that thread of comments will be included in the report when the police is contacted regarding this mass harassment, internet stalking & attempted doxing of my identity (they haven't fully succeeded on the doxing yet, but they've managed to get enough followers on it that haven't bothered to find out the real facts before becoming an accessory to it & potential inclusion in the police report once filed) over multiple websites.  Once a subpoena is issued, this is the one thing that DEFINITELY gets companies to start listening (the last time this happened on Twitch leading to what appeared to be a trigger on any report I filed on Twitch resulting in an immediate ban of the account reported, which didn't get deactivated until years later; given Twitch has become another site included in this targeted harassment & is documented in evidence, this could happen again), because those companies are at penalty of law if they don't comply with it.

UPDATE:  After checking Steam comments again to back up some more evidence of the harassment for re-listing on this page to display the personalities of individuals participating in this mass attack, I determined it was time to start putting IP bans in place for misuse of the site for doxing purposes, property theft from the site (being republished to other sites) & defamation being published on Steam.  Despite the accusations that are being made by the individuals making attacks on Steam, these IPs are NOT being published & may be removed after a couple years of of the attacks ending.

UPDATE:  At 12:01 AM on 11/5/2023, we received emails through Domain Privacy that has been forwarded from one of these abusive individuals.  Apparently they attempted to dox us by doing a whois on the domain, but that information is protected under Domain Privacy.  I would suspect they knew this already, but sent the abusive emails regardless (same email twice).  We decided to do a whois lookup on the domain for their email address & found that it has been registered & removed multiple times, likely only registered when the harassment is done, but we suspect domain registrars will have records of these domain registrations & can be used in a criminal case when subpoenaed for that information.  The harassment is expected to be coming from Kategawa (listed over 2 accounts on this page, as well as once in the Twitch ban list for the webmaster's Twitch channel) based on the similarities as shown in the backed up Twitch IRC logs being kept as evidence since this escalation of events started.

As we've stated before, any abusive emails sent may be published to the site, so at this point we will be making good on that commitment for those who chose to ignore the warning by adding another permanent section to the site (for the time being, to this page as we know it's coming from Steam users attacking the site, but may later be moved to it's own page, a new page started solely on this one individual & continued as more come through), along with the full (uncensored) email address that they sent the email from.  We will also be escalating this matter to law enforcement & likely be filing additional reports against those accounts with an included police report case number (possibly with additional information as was stated in the past, such as Officer's name, badge number & district of police) once the police (and likely IC3.gov) have been contacted regarding this issue that has continued for 8 days straight now.  One term in particular used in the emails is discrimination against those with disabilities, therefore this gives me grounds not only to file a criminal complaint an the grounds of harassment & internet stalking, but also as a hate crime.  A minor difference between getting the police involved with EPICMINECRAFT25, the attacks from this individual are not saying that they are going to personally kill me or cause bodily harm, but instead telling me to commit suicide (which is where the attacks that lead to the police report filed before on EPICMINECRAFT25 started, so it's likely only a matter of time before it escalates to that point, however there will already be a police report in place to document the escalation of events & lead to an eventual arrest later, if not sooner).

Additional steps were put in place to auto-delete any email sent from addresses (or in this case, given it's a domain registered for the purpose of harassment & criminal actions, the entire domain) in the list below that had committed these attacks (still getting received, but auto-deleted before I will see them & unlikely to receive alerts on).  Additional abusive/discriminatory terms will also be added to rules to auto-delete these emails from future email attacks sent.

One final point to point out is the stupidity they sent it from an email address that appears to have their names in it (likely a couple that are using the same email address and likely knowing that it was going to get published online for the public to view).  It's their fault they sent the email when a prior warning was given on the home page of this site that any harassment over the email system would result in it being publicly published & furthermore, sending it from an email address that actually gave out their names; now their names are out there as a result of their actions.  Additionally this give a target where a summons for a court date can be sent once the police report is filed (provided the police decide to proceed with charges against them).

Escalation to misinformation videos being published and
further increased harassment from viewers of that video

IP bans were being put in place when I realized there was an excess of activity on the site from individuals looking to use the information on it to dox myself, as well as spread misinformation on hair-trigger assumptions without knowing the full details behind those publications (however when it comes to trolls, it wouldn't matter if they knew the full details, they'd still doing this on their own willful ignorance because it gets them attention & the person they are attacking further harassment).  The publication of this video lead to the publication on WonderGamer.net you see here.

Harassment has increased at least tenfold & now has our team looking at speaking to the police about it again, with a potential lawsuit from WonderGamer.net to be added to other lawsuits that have been filed under new laws against other social platforms.

UPDATE:  In addition to the bans I had to start putting in place & the new article about misinformation videos going up, I decided I needed to boot the one remaining individual that was on my Discord server that joined while these attacks were in effect & cut any open access to it.  The means the only way people are going to be getting on the server now will be by private expiring invite links (and only those I know, no more random inviduals getting on simply by asking until I know they are trustworthy to be on there).  This decision was made after getting past posts in text channels to show to new users by rehashing the permissions (apparently they weren't set up correctly), at which point the individual on the server apparently made it a point to share links to the channels that aided in getting my Twitch channel affiliate status, joining one of their Discord servers, then DMing multiple people on the server (when I brought this to the attention of the owner of that Discord server, they were promptly banned from it; I also pointed out their Twitch account which I noticed had earlier joined my own Twitch channel according to my IRC logging).

UPDATE:  An additional step that was determined to be necessary was to disable the contact email address on the site until the attacks from Steam had ended (which isn't likely to happen any time soon & probably won't at all until this become a legal matter where Steam started getting contacted on criminal behavior over their platform).

Email spoofing & impersonation of Google staff

On 1/19/2024, I received another email that got forwarded through domain privacy that was clearly an attempt to trick me into thinking it was from Google staff, however I've dealt with email scams for long enough to know better & quickly slashed it off as a useless attempt to harass.  Because it was clearly a spoofed email address (reading Google@Gmail.com), this email was not linked above, however I still took note of it.  The email stated the same thing in both the title & body fields, stating, "We are watching."  I considered forwarding this email to Google so they could track down the source of it, but considering these emails are delivered to me in plain text attachments with the full headers removed (something that is necessary to track down the source of an email), I figured there was no point.

The irony behind this attempt is Google already has a personal contact for me on this website, it's registered in their engine & they would never have used this method to contact me, so this was clearly a waste of effort by somebody who followed up on attempted harassment when they found they couldn't dox me by looking up registration data on the website (although it does show there was clearly an attempt to do so to acquire this email).

In any case, I decided to take additional steps so I wouldn't be getting notifications on my phone ever time I received an email through this harassment loophole jumping.  Everything that has come thorough that email thus far has been nothing but harassment from the Steam community, so I can pretty well ignore any emails coming from it, just manually look at when I have spare time to waste.

UPDATE:  Ironically, I received yet another email the next day (1/20/2024), not trying to hide the fact they were being abusive this time around, just outright being inflammatory.  Of course this was once again a spoofed email address, so they won't be getting the gratification of it being made public this time (as trolls take pride in their harassment being published).

Further filters were set up to start auto-deleting abusive emails as they are received, however every email that does get through the filters is further evidence that will be provided to the police when criminal charges are filed against these individuals (resulting in subpoenas being issued against the sites it's happening on) for extended online harassment, internet stalking & doxing.  These emails are for the most part going to be ignored, seeing as I won't be receiving alerts on them anymore & I can already expect what's going to be in them, they will only be stored as evidence for when the criminal complaint is filed.  I suspect that over time domain privacy will see what is going on & take the matter into their own hands.

Impersonation continues, attempted manipulation of other site functions

The night of February 5th, 2024, I noticed more harassment happening through methods that hadn't tried (and some they have tried in the past).  This was first noticed while I was in a game of Warframe & was getting notifications on my phone; these notifications were apparently somebody trying to manipulate the sharing functions on Google Drive to gain access editing access to a number of files that are sitting on Google drive regarding griefing & other issues that happened on Twitch & in Fortnite (Save the World).  Of course they cleared those when they realized they screwed up, but because my phone held the notifications, I was able to document this information through screenshots, which not only gave me an email address, but also a screen name of who was attempting it:

Originally I debated whether I was going to make this public or not, seeing as it didn't go anywhere, but I knew I'd be keeping the screenshots regardless in case they were needed.  For them to have access to the FAVORXIV notes, I knew they had to have accessed it from the unlisted ban list for my Twitch channel (linked off of my Twitch channel).

Of course the harassment tonight didn't end there, once again going back to the impersonation method of harassment & leaving comments on my own screenshots.  Of course the comment was deleted for a few different reasons (as if the obvious impersonation & degrading comments weren't enough), the main reason being that it was advertising the channel that put out the misinformation video that only echoes the comments of the abusive trolls from that original thread.  I also made sure to file a report against the profile for impersonation, including a link to the screenshot the comment was left on, a backup screenshot of the comment (on a broader range of what is seen here), as well as mentioning the police report case number & reference number of the support ticket where this is currently an ongoing situation.  After seeing that the attempt over Google Drive was not the only attempt tonight to continue this harassment going, I determined I would be making the screenshots above public along with additional documentation of the continued harassment still happening (now going over 4 months).

It does appear that the majority of this harassment seems to have stopped in the thread itself, this came after this issue was reported to the police on February 22nd (as well as the shared folder that contains the backed up IRC logs from my Twitch channel that has already been linked on this page).  It's expected something may have happened through Steam management at this time as there was an open support ticket when the police were contacted & after supplying Steam with the case number for that report, most of the direct harassment in that thread stopped (for the most part).  Of course I knew this wouldn't be the end of it, they continue to do so quietly (of course there is occasionally a new comment dropped into that thread that clearly has NOTHING to do with the game it's reviewing), although as with is the case with troll, being silent in their harassment isn't anything they are able to do well.

It's also expected they are continuing to have harassment forwarded from the domain privacy contact for this website, however since setting up the rules to have those emails auto-sorted into a folder to disable the alerts to my phone (given the only thing that was coming through it was harassment & they started spoofing their email addresses), I haven't looked at that folder, everything coming through it is being fully ignored (although they are still being documented should it become a criminal/civil case).
