Steam chat blocks Torrent links


STEAM Chat is now blocking most Torrent links shared. What surprises me is that why would any one share pirated software links while on legit download service?!

I understand that they may have Steam running with no games but that would be an over kill for a chat client, but then again there is no good client for desktop anyway.

Of course not all links get blocked and that is natural as the blocking falters get updated over time. My question is; Why bother? I know that Valve is trying to reduce piracy but wouldn’t it be better to spend the time and resource on something more useful, like a recording option?

Let me know what you all think.
