I don't have a problem with people posting links like this, only fools would click and enter their steam details or download something from this site.

If people read this post about a scam site and you still enter your account details into the said site then their shouldn't be using a computer at all.

No, you are being shortsighted. Not allowing links is a simple precaution to save a lot of potential harm.

Those that click would ultimately blame Valve once they had, passing-the-buck and accepting no personal responsibility like most people these days.

EDIT: Post reported for live phishing link removal

The world is fool of fools Ganger (Even if serves them right for not reading)

I agree with you (as in their own fault), but why tempt fools and create more work for Steam Support.
