Possible Steam Trade Scam Fix

To prevent those people who swap out a rare item at the last second to get the other person's items for nothing, I think we should have a 5 second cooldown on agreeing to trade once an item gets removed from the trade.

5 seconds isn't a load of time and it will demolish what is arguably the most used scam on Steam.

Or people could not rush into pressing the buttons as though they gave out free sweets...

Press the "I agree" tickbox, wait until they press theirs and before you run to the "DO TRADE" - LOOK AT THE ITEMS they are offering. Waiting that extra 5 seconds to look over what you are getting isn't a lot of time to wait.
