    And 100% of people who can't provide their source when asked are full of shit. Requesting a source isn't an unreasonable thing to do, and you should expect it and be ready with one if you want to be taken seriously.

    How am I even supposed to work with you if you are completely unwilling to back up your own claims?
    Many different people want many different things. Don't be upset if the thing that you want hasn't happened yet. It doesn't mean it will never happen. An Organization has a responsibility to prioritize the desires of the majority. A single individual (You) is a minority. Do not ask yourself whether or not your desires are relevant. Ask only if your desires are that of the majorities.

      My sources, I assure you, are over 118% reliable. In fact, after receiving a first source from me, 35% of people go on to receive a secondary source.

      You can't argue with numbers like that.

      Or numbers like this! Too bad only 41% of players that read that 60% of players who have been mute banned go on to help 20% of chefs cook delicious pizza that feeds 19.4% of the population, and of the 194% of players that do this over 93% changed their behavior, 40% of the time!

      *insert extra meaningless numbers here*

          He's not trolling, he's just making a point of comparing Valve's percentages with his own fiction. Neither are particularly convincing.

            Well I suppose if you only give reverence to information that specifically compliments your way of thinking, nothing is truly "convincing"

              Facts are convincing, regardless if you're entertained by them or not. Valve's post on the mute system was not very factual.

                Thank you very much, I couldn't (and likely wouldn't) have said it any better.
