Running SRCDs as Root

Is it that detrimental to run srcds as root in linux? Anyone have any bad experiences where something did happen because they did run it as root?

Running SRCDs as Root - is stupid.

Don’t run anything as root, bad practice. Although I hope weasel doesn’t read this or he’ll call me a hypocrite for using it myself. But still, point sands.

Wow… hypocrite :wink:

and yes. Don’t run SRCDS as root. Never know when a new exploit for gmod might come out allowing you to execute stuff on the server or yeah… Other stuff.
