    SteamRep Admin:
    We want people to use what tools they have available such as searching here, google (which will show reports, info for users from here) and other search engines to see if a user has a history of issues regarding trading or anything that may throw up red flags.
    The tags here are issued as a warning for others to decide for themselves if they wish to deal with you.

    Here is a quick google link for you, for example:

    I can list some of the disadvantages that I've got but personally I think you shouldn't trade if you are marked.
    It's harder, and you are doing more harm by trading with a marked account.

    Disadvantages of trading with a marked account:
    • No usage of scrap.tf, you are completely wiped off the site until your ban is appealed.
    • On places like skial, you will be marked with a scammer tag that looks like this [SCAMMER]. It also notifies the entire server that a marked scammer has joined in the text chat and that trading with you is not advised.
    • Certain backpack.tf rules are set into place that can get others in trouble if you trade with them. If you are steamrep-marked, people are to not trade with you. If they trade with you unknowingly, they may be warned, if they trade knowingly of your tag they may have heavier action taken against them. Or so I remember.
    • People are more unlikely to trade with you anyways, you aren't to be trusted if you are marked in the first place. You are suspected to be a liar/thief.
    • Certain communities may not allow you to join servers, or even be on their sites.
    All I can say is grit your teeth, bear the problem, and if you wish to get back into trading to make a proper appeal and hope it is accepted.
    I heavily advise that you do not trade whatsoever until you are mark-free. If you continue to trade, you are only making the issue worse imo.
