He refused to adopt a 'code of conduct' or ban commenters they didn't like.
"Just lift, bro" really isn't good advice for people who die young. If you are dying young, there almost certainly was something wrong with you that you aren't at fault for. Even living a horrible live, it takes decades to bring a healthy body to ruin.He should have started lifting weights. Inactivity, poor diet, and poor heart health go hand in hand.
Reading this again its interesting to see the microcosm of internet 2.0: Codes of Conduct, "Safety and inclusion," and all the elements of the socjus/anti-racism zeitgeist coalescing in one place.Some old Shamus and Spoiler Warning drama: https://rpgcodex.net/forums/threads/spoiler-warning-and-twentysided-drama.114861/

So… I’m kind of morbidly curious now. Does anything special happen at all, or does Steam just assume you stopped logging in and blissfully keep your data untouched?
Pretty much nothing happens. Steam just lets the account sit there, it’s pretty much up to the family who gets it. You can pass it on to someone as an inheritance, or just let it collect dust. I suppose you could also delete it, but that seems like burning money. We’ve turned it into a ‘family account’ since he owned nearly a thousand games.

The internet has made death very strange since much of the things someone ‘had’ can be in a digital space. This site itself is pretty good evidence of that.
