        They said in a blog post that punishment is the number 1 goal of the mute system, rather than educating people about the mute button.

            Because Valve hates people that play their games.

                  because even before being muted I can give u death threats abuse your mom and sister or just anything in general. that's what the mute system aims to reduce. how are u gonna mute some1 even before he says something. ?

                        Because this generation are a bunch of e-thugs that love to act tough when they're safe behind a computer screen. They got no manners so they need to be groomed into normal, socially acceptable human behavior.

                          Which is worse? e-thugs or whinny bitches that run to their mommy crying when someone calls them "noob" ?

                            Truth be told since the mute system has been implemented i see a lot less people crying caps in all chat or swearing or saying something like "GG NOOBS EZ GAME". Which is something positive imho, also i see a lot less unpausing while waiting for a reconnect, positive too.

                            Wrong thing is the reports are not handled by a human being.
