1. There is no such thing as a "pending" ban or Steam admin. Anyone threatening your account is a scammer trying to scare you. Read more.

    Come back with a new identity is your choice, maybe. Now you sincerely revealed yourself as a scammer before (Steamrep gave me warning when I checked your rep) but it won't change my mind to think that a user who attempted or conducted scam action before will change to become a good user. Also, if you still keep defending your current Steam as someone who already realized of own mistake, it won't change people's thoughts on you.
    If it's so easy for a person to clean his identity on Steam, then what's the point of making Steamrep and VAC penalties for those fraud users?
    Maybe a user can scam a guy today but after a few months he comes back and said he regrets of what he does but actually it might be a trap for those who read.
    p/s: sry for any bad English because English isn't my main language ~ GL HF~

    Appeal section is for users to argue the decision made by authorities against them. Something we can say, defend for justice.
    Your situation was totally different. If you really want to appeal, then please go to Steam Support or the appeal section. Not my post to express out your arguments. My post is pointing to users who always attempting in scam for Dota 2 properties.
    What about yours? Mr. m3]A[, this post is just a share of information. I am not creating this post for argument, understand?
    If you want to question me and ask that my points have flaws, then you are allow to do so. But reality is, some of my points can be true because you questioned me in very earlier time by using my points and your Steamrep already stated you as a user who attempted to scam before. So, it's true. If you want to say my points are not true, then go argue with Steamrep or Steam Support. Why you keep asking in my post?

    Removing the middleman list is a horrible idea. All that will happen is impersonation will increase because anyone could claim to be a trusted middleman then.

    The list at least gives a platform for people to start from. Because the communities that vouch for them are putting their names on the line that their middleman is legit.

    One that speaks his mind, apparently too much.
    No clue what you meant to say, even without the censorship.

    I was merely commenting why you insisted on a reply from the REAL Penguin when SilentD already explained to you that you were viewing an impersonators profile. The whole point of making the list is to prevent users like you from falling for impersonators and here you are lobbying for the removal of said list when you cant distinguish the real Penguin from an impersonator even with the list.
    (I understand tho that based on your past replies you will not understand a word of what I just said anyhow but.. yolo)

    @Leogendary ♂ Scrapping the middleman list altogether because a few people don't know how to use it is not the best approach here.

    If you were truly scammed by someone on that list, Penguin included, you should fill out a report and be prepared to prove it was them. As for trade bans, I don't know why you need it from Penguin himself; you can plainly see from his profile he is not trade banned. Click the 17-digit number below his profile picture in this forum, and it will say he's not trade banned. Then click the link to his Steam profile, and you will see there is no "Trade banned" warning on it.

    Hint: Never trust a link sent to you in Steam chat as proof of trustworthiness.
