The rise of free-to-play mmo games has been both a blessing and a curse. On the good side, gamers get access to quality online games and are able to significantly play them without spending a dime. On the negative side, the lack of any mmo price barrier can lead to a great deal of disruption as trolls can flood the game as it only requires an internet connection and downloading the client. The same pros and cons are found in the popular gaming platforms, such as Steam, that millions of gamers use every day. Valve has seen enough abuse on their platform that they've instituted a new policy that restricts the Steam features that users can use unless the spend $5 within the Steam store.
