How you need to prove that Steam exists

Well, I do not expect anybody to actually read this. As nobody seems to really read my other posts.

They generally cannot seem to understand that somebody would have an issue with Steam--so they generally do not regard it as possible that somebody could have issues with Steam.

I challenged people, to prove that Steam operates. On a few occasions. What I got, for the most part (save a single post by @xoaks ) has been garbage. What did you offer for proof:

* Screenshots
* Videos
* Account information.

Generally assuming that all this cannot be faked in any manner. I gave two methods to prove me wrong on this matter. Only one of you have bothered to take me up on one of them. Thank you @xoaks, surprisingly what you suggested helped a little--but not enough to fix the issue I was having.

What are these two methods, that do not involve electronic documents with no verification of reality--or videos that many people have the tools to create on their home computers anyways?

Two methods--both of which you _all_ ignored, save @xoaks, simply because you could not believe that your perfect God, Steam was faulty.

Method 1) Help me get it running on my computer. Generally you suggestions have been to: upgrade the specs on Holly here. Generally citing specs that Holly already has, Really smooth here. The other suggestion was to install windows. Except, I do not admit to knowing how to use Windows in a decent manner. Which is why I generally opt out of Windows. The OS make no damn sense to me. And yush, I get along on Linux and BSD just fine. Yesh, I have issues every now and then as no OS is perfect--nor is anybody's knowledge in one. One example is the issue I am having steam to run. Get it to run for me, and I will admit I am wrong on the matter, and we can move on.

Method 2) Have somebody here in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada demonstrate downloading and launching a game via Steam. This method, would be the most likely to prove me wrong. As I can see this occur right in front of my eyes. And generally actually observe somebody using and running Steam in an environment a little closer to the Real World. This would be exceedingly effective, but nobody has shown a desire to do it.

No, you just state, "I have X game, and here is my account".

To retort to that, I am not certain if many of you are old enough to remember the Hover Board rumour when Back To The Future came out? The rumour that Hover Boards where in fact real, just could not be used due to safety reasons. I am certain those of us old enough to be children during that time all had a friend who claimed to have a hover board. However, when asked to present it, they generally are unable to do so.

There we go, one of two methods will likely convince me on this matter. Until then, I have no requirement that you can download and play games via Steam.

Look, I have been pretty much been begging to be proven wrong. If my statements were as wrong as I figured they were when i first made them, certainly you would have very quickly provided the two methods. Yes, I was aggressive about this. This is how I get when I really desire to be proven wrong on a matter.

I challenged you, and you guys have failed so far.

You know--did a vanity Google search on myself. This was listed as a somebody suggesting I was mad.

I dunno--maybe if this post was about people having psychic powers, or that god saves you--or some other crazy nonsense that I have no proof to really believe in, I would have had many people agreeing with me on this matter...

However, while I do admit, that somebody did prove me wrong here--most people just stood around, and called me crazy.

I guess I have gone to the area of being a (really horribly thought out) skeptic to the point of having people calling me insane. Which well, I admit, to some, this is on the grounds of claiming that dirt does not exist. But then--there are also people that claiming they do not have the psychic powers they claim to have, is like saying dirt does not exist.

Though, it would have been helpful, if rather than saying, "she is crazy", you just did a demo of the matter earlier.

Which just to reinterate here, my assessment that Steam does not exist, yadda yadda, was false. It has been demonstrated as being false. And I can say, yes it does work on various Windows systems.

Though--it is kind of interesting that this thread... and the other, both appeared in a vanity search as reasons I am insane. I mean, the other one, yeah, I can empathise with that variation. Here, I gave a way to proof this to me--and it was done. I now have seen Steam exist... how the hell was this one listed as crazy?
