  1. Judging by "holier than though", I'd guess that English is in fact their main language. Such mistakes in set phrases are more common among native speakers. The reason is, they, having heard a phrase a lot, intuitively grasp its meaning and don't feel the need to double-check. On the other hand, a learner of English has no idea what "holier than thou" could even mean, and when they do research the phrase, the etymology is imprinted. Another indicator of the grandparent being a native speaker is their usage of "mouthing off", which, being a colloquial phrase, isn't something a learner of the language could encounter in a textbook or a work of fiction.

  2. What exactly is wrong with English not being one's native language?

  3. For that matter, what is the benefit of using advanced words when the level of nuance required to get the message across is achieved without them?

Meanwhile, I'm wondering why the duplicate threads aren't getting closed, as I seem to recall that SG (as per the norm for most forums) has an established expectation of closing duplicate threads in situations such as these. A single thread's be easier to oversee, and then maybe staff could do something about clamping down on the instigators who are trying to escalate up drama in the threads.

Defi manages to properly format her title and manages to not violate any site rules with her threat title and description, so that thread seems like the clear choice for retention. Unless, of course, the consideration is that the matter is warranting excessive visibility. None of these threads appear to be doing anything other than posting additional links to the scam site and building up drama, though, so the benefits seem questionable.

It is funny that people would think it was real.

What do you mean I'm getting a free AAA game for just logging into my steam account in this suspicious about: blank page made to look like steam's login page... What an unbelievably great deal!

If people don't look at a url before logging into a site, then internet literacy has a long way to go.

On a superficial level you are right with that comparison, however I have to credit the makers of this newest scam with the execution of their site, the enticing partial reveal of a legit looking Steam key and fake login widget, which can look deceptively similar to the real thing at first glance. That's the thing really, I clicked on the link knowing full well what it was, just to see what it looks like, and if you are just used to seeing Steam's open ID linked login from benign services I can see how it could have fooled someone who let their guard down for a second.

But my comment was really more about being annoyed at the uncalled for display of arrogance and pathetic superiority complex over the "stupid" victims who fell for it by one user in particular in this thread.

I have a huge friend list but really don't care since I won't click every single random link people send me.

I'm honestly really surprised that people still fall for this kind of thing in this day and age of regular scam website and knowledge of them. In any case, hopefully most of the victims will recover their accounts intact, and return with nothing lost but with a solid lesson learned about internet safety and how easy it is to get your account hijacked.

Not sure I'd agree with that. If you're smart enough not to fall for these obviously fishy links then you've got nothing to worry about no matter how many friends you have on Steam.

I got message for that phishing website today and it was from a person I really wouldn't expect to fall for that. It was from keohookalani (I'm sure you remember him), I immediately thought the links are fishy, especially since he spammed 4 links in a row.

You never know who can fall for that, even people who really should know better do, unfortunately.

Yeah, it's really surprising that so many experienced gamers fall for scams like that. I already had 5 or 6 people spamming that link today. And they were all traders and collectors with several thousand games. You'd think they know how a phishing link looks. But you're right, you never know who will fall for a scam like this in the end.

There's no constructive merit to typing out the name in full, it still violates certain site rules (as they're written) to do so, it's uncomfortable from a social perspective, and you just completely crossed the line by posting it as a direct link anyway. This thread was all-around dubious to make on top of all the existing threads to begin with, but you keep inflating that sense of unease.

The real eyeraiser is, you felt the need to make an additional thread, but you clearly didn't look through the other threads, or you'd have seen staff requesting such links not be posted.

I really would like to know, how that site get's past Steam authenticator? I understand it's a fake Steam login, so once they get someone to log in with their Steam data, they basically know their usersname/password. That still doesn't explain how they get past the 2-factor authentication, though. Also, since it's a fake login, could we just feed them random username/password combos to drive them crazy?

You give them your authenticator code when you log in to a site like that.

I think, since Steam Guard code lasts few seconds, the site logs in "somewhere" immediately after receiving the data still using the same code.

I don't think you understand how it looks like from the perspective of a person who isn't cautious. You go to some webpage, see a "Sign in through Steam" button, click on it, get a page which looks almost exactly like Steam login page (but isn't one), after you input your login and password you get a popup asking for your mobile authentication code and that's it - your account gets stolen.

So basically the answer to "who thinks about logging in with their Steam credentials to a website that isn't Steam?" is "everyone who logs in through Steam to SG / BLAEO / achievement trackers / trading sites, etc."
