Steam needs better tools to deal with toxic users

Snippet -

"Kill yourselves you degenerate freaks."
"kill yourself faggot."
"I hate n***ers"
These are comments I've read on Steam Community forums, user reviews, and in Steam Groups. As Steam grows, many indie developers are facing the increasing mental anguish of having to deal with toxic, hateful behavior in their Steam communities. And without better moderation tools and a more proactive stance from Valve, Steam is becoming a pretty shitty place to be.
Yesterday we published a survey of 230 Steam developers, conducted by indie dev Lars Doucet. The survey highlights the biggest issues developers have with Steam, and of those issues, one of the largest is the inability to stem harassment and toxicity that seems to be swelling on the PC's largest videogame platform.
