That's a very odd interpretation of what I said.
I said that there are 10 people gaming in a room. One person said "hey I want a way to switch these foreign language versions of games into versions with my native language" (lets call this Feature A).
Another guy in the room was really embarrassed when all his friends noticed that he had 1000 hours logged and every achievement completed in "I'm a pretty pony princess the trading card game" and asked "hey, can I get a feature to selectively hide my gaming purchases and stats from my friends? That would be pretty cool". Lets call this Feature B.
The remaining 8 people in the room were all gaming happily and couldn't have cared less about either Feature A or B.
Off in some obscure land, there resides a mental patient in an asylum who cast a message out on a paper airplane. This message read "I would like to be able to purge my brain of the video games that haunt me". Let's call this Feature C.
That host of that room is Steam, and their solution was to give everyone Feature D. Feature D does not fulfill the full role of either Feature A, B, or C. Instead Feature D briefly touches on all 3, and then runs off in another direction.
In respect to Feature A, Feature D does the first step and prevents users from PLAYING foreign language games they already own, but does not actually follow through give them the correct language version instead. The user can now purchase a correct-language version now that their old version has been purged, but only if they are willing to buy again with no reimbursement, which was never part of Feature A.
In respect to Feature B, Feature D does prevents the player from playing their game (which was never part of Feature B), and also completely fails to hide the game ownership and history from friends / public (the whole point for Feature B).
In respect to that one crazy guy in an asylum in a third world nation without internet access or computers, AKA Feature C, Feature D gets close in that it prevents the game from being played and removes it from the ownership list, however it still shows history so the poor insane guy is still going to be haunted by those games, just perhaps a little less frequently as he mainly dreams about the library page and not the profile page.
Meanwhile, the 8 guys in the room who were happily gaming and not asking for anything at all also now have Feature D looming over their heads as yet another exploitable security vulnerability even though they never asked for A, B, C, or D, yet for some reason some other crazy people from that far off asylum feel the need to point fingers at those 8 previously happy and totally innocent players and blame them for the whole scenario.
And thus concludes the child bedtime story version of this thread. Make sense now?
