$5 Minimum To Graduate From Steam Limited Account Now

In their ongoing attempts to crack down on scammers and spammers using throwaway accounts on Steam, Valve have further tightened the restrictions on who can and can't message folks.

Your Monthly Spam Round-Up

Here's something enormously stupid that first appeared in PC Format. It's reviews of spam! Why? Because someone asked me to write some reviews of spam. So I jumped into the spam folder and picked out the first few that grabbed me. I recommend doing this now and again - take a look, and enjoy the astonishing nonsense that gets sent out every day. but loved…
