Twitch is in trouble! Steam Broadcasting!

Everyone has it!

Hmm...I'm going to try it out. I don't think it'll rival Twitch as is however. It doesn't appear to be browsable like Twitch is. As is, I probably won't use it simply because it puts my Steam account at risk in a way Twitch does not.

-Porn, inappropriate or offensive content, warez or leaked content or anything else not safe for work
-Any discussion of piracy
-Cheating, hacking, game exploits
-Threats of violence or harassment, even as a joke
-Posted copyright material such as magazine scans
-Soliciting, begging, auctioning, raffling, selling, advertising, referrals
-Racism or discrimination
-Abusive language, including swearing
I'm not so sure I like how loose those rules are. I can't discuss piracy at all? So what, if I even say "Dude, don't pirate, buy games!" that's technically discussing piracy and my Steam account is at risk.

I hope you're wrong on that last sentence and it's more of telling people how to pirate and not telling people not to pirate..

But, we will find out over time when people start getting banned lol.

But, I want this for what it actually is, just playing the game and letting people watch. I'm not sure, but does it allow non steam games to be broadcasted thought it? I've been playing a lot of heroes of the storm and it makes for a lot of cool moments in that game.

That's the problem with poorly written rules. It's up to Steam to decide how to enforce it. And Steam hasn't had the best track record for customer service of late.
