Can't post in steam forums without steam guard

Why do I have to use steam guard to post in the forums? I don't use steam guard because every single time I do anything in the browser with steam I have to login again fully with the steam guard which is a huge hassle. I'm trying to report a bug to a mod maker and I can't because of the huge hassle steam guard is.

You should have 2FA on for every site you have, especially something like steam, which is filled with people looking to get into other accounts.

Point is shouldn't have to. And won't because of the amount of hassle it adds to my life with it on.

Then you can't post on the steam forums. The end.

enabling steamguard is not a 'hassle'

you simply log in, check the box that says, 'remember my credentials'

Does not work. Anytime I visit a steam page after a reboot or closing the browser I am using, it logs me out of steam's website. Therefore steam guard is a hassle because of the frequency I have to deal with the two-factor if I want to do anything in the browser. This happens on every single device and browser I use.

Your attitude is a hassle. Sorry security is a hassle to you and your fast paced life.

I wouldn't have a problem steam guard if it did not require me to sign back into steam every single time I visit their website in something that isn't their software. Security shouldn't be such a large step outside of convenience in an end user situation.
