YES!! Steam!! They are so irritating!
I remember wanting to play an old game, but since I try to avoid Steam based games, I had forgot my account. So I thought: "No sweat, I just create a new one!" Admitted, it wasn't one of my smartest moves, but it was also one I was going to have a long time to regret.
The new account didn't work. I could not reverse it, and as you mentioned, Steam is all but impossible to get in contact with!
I can't remember how I finally managed to fix it, so I could play the game, I had paid for and had a recept for; but I do remember, that they had made it so tricky, that I spent an entire evening finding out. An evening I had planned to spend playing.
: I feel the same way about Steam. They don't
: give a damn about their customers. You can't
: even phone them up. I've given up on buying
: Windows games and just bought an XBox 360.
: Less hassle, not having to go through bloody

: Hrmpf!! Emily Autumn. I noticed her early in
: her carreer. She had only made a promo EP
: Which she was selling in a limited edition.
: I sent the money expecting to get the EP.
: Nothing happened! Not to me or to lots of

: Then suddenly we have a sobbing Emily Autumn
: on her Myspace or what it was called at that
: time, telling us, that somone had broken

: stolen her computer. The computer with all
: the info on, about who had sent money for
: the EP...!!
: Okaaay.. So she takes thousands of dollars
: from her fans and she keeps the info on her
: harddrive and nowhere else? That is either a
: big fat lie or very irresponsible!
: But what happened was, what she, or rather
: those who promote, her knew would happen: A
: lot of her fans, her Pumpkins as she called
: them, started sobbing too, and told her how
: sorry they were, and that she could just
: keep the money they had sent for the CD.
: Well, Im not her her little Pumpkin. I'm a
: customer who sent her good money for a
: merchandize I never received.
: So all of us cruel hearted nonpumpkins who
: still wanted either our money back or our
: EP, got an E-mail address. Which didn't
: work. And then another which didn't work
: either, but which she happily claimed
: And after a while she was happy to announce,
: that now all her little pumpkins had got
: their EPs. Which the little pumpkins hadn't.
: It was obvious from the more and more
: annoyed posts on the Myspace site, but those
: posts were ignored. The only ones she
: answered, were those few who actually got
: their EP.
: Now, I'm not so naive that I think I
: actually sent the money to her personally in
: her Asylum.
: Emily Autumn is invented, and there are no
: doubt some very clever men behind her, who
: knew, that after loosing the names of the
: people who sent the money, this way would be
: the right way to handle it. And it was! She
: even got more popular among her devoted
: little pumpkins. Who all were soo happy that
: nothing had happened to her, during the
: burglary in her Asylum.
: Invented or not, I think Emily Autumn is
: very talented, and I liked the music. I
: thought it was brilliant and something new,
: but I can't listen to her, because the mere
: thought of her, gets me going like I just
: did, just because you mentioned her. Not
: because of the few dollars it cost me, but
: because of that degrading way, I and a lot
: of others were treated in this.

: You just have to know where to look! A good
: place to start is going to gigs put on by
: goth clubs in your area (or if there aren't
: any then go further afield), in the UK a lot

: events such as band nights and festivals.
: It's a good way of finding out what's out

: Unscene magazine. They interview bands and
: do reviews every issue as well as give a

: some of my favourites include Uninvited
: Guest, Ghost of Lemora and Zombina and the
: Skeletones. You still also get bands that
: may not necessarily be goth but are popular
: among goths like The Birthday Massacre and

: I'm curious about something: When
: goth music I keep hearing the same thing,
: about The Cure, Souxie Soux and all that,
: and it strikes me that even though these
: were good old goth bands, they are from
: decades ago. I mention Nightwish and
: Midnight Syndicate to people and they like
: to tell me that stuff isn't defined as Goth.
: I'm merely curious as to other people's
: opinions, but since these bands involve dark
: imagery, sometimes of vampires, sometimes of
: legends and mythology, and purely haunted
: house imagery (Midnight Syndicate) I
