. . .Im simply invalidating everything you say, and I dont have any idea why your making it so easy for me really.
As Inigo Montoya once said, "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."
You are rejecting every argument being presented to you, even though the majority are based on established laws and facts. You refuse to accept anything that does not agree with your preconceived assumptions. You are repeatedly denying any possible basis for objective truth because it does not agree with your preconceptions.
This is not invalidation, it is nihilism.
You state in the original post that you read the product advertising, the box art text, the fine print, and understood that Steam was required. You don't have to like it, but you understood it. If you understood all that was presented to you, then there was no scam or deception. But this doesn't agree with how you think the world should work, so you will continue to reject the true nature of things.
