Steam chat now blocking reddit links?

The intent was to provide players with a sense of pride and accomplishment for finding ways around the Steam chat filter.

As for cost, we selected initial keywords based upon data from the Steam Beta and other adjustments made to milestone rewards before launch. Among other things, we're looking at average per-player wordwriting rates on a daily basis, and we'll be making constant adjustments to ensure that players have challenges that are compelling, rewarding, and of course attainable via chatting.

We appreciate the candid feedback, and the passion the community has put forth around the current topics here on Reddit, our forums and across numerous social media outlets.

Our team will continue to make changes and monitor community feedback and update everyone as soon and as often as we can.
