I don’t think asking for detailed rape threats against me is demanding an unrealistic safe space, especially since the current mechanisms are obviously not easily handling the situation.
I understand it’s a place where people go to escape, but I’d like to think that if someone is harassing another person to that extent that other people can speak up, or perhaps kick them from the lobby.
Other gaming companies receive a multitude of reports and manage to respond professionally and quickly (i.e. Riot, Blizzard). I think it’s a managerial problem within Valve that can perhaps be fixed by more hands on deck for customer service.
