What kind of punishment do users receive for writing gimmick guides?

I was just wondering what exactly happens once it’s been taken down, specifically for the person who created it.

I’m talking about the community guides for each steam game. Currently, the Garry’s Mod section is flooded with guides that are poorly written, and are meant to be jokes. Nothing beneficial for the game, and the people who play it.

One such example can be seen here http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=185261402

I’ve reported quite a lot of guides such as that one above, but it just seems like a waste of time. Would love to hear from someone who knows what happens to them.

That’s the problem with public guides, all the awesome stuff is gonna get buried enough lol random shit.

I did however find a TF2 guide about baking a pie as a good gaming snack, which made me smirk.

I made one, and they hid it I believe, but there was no further punishment.

So they just hide it? No notification, or indication that you shouldn’t do it again?

I just went back and checked, and they put this up

Other than that, no account punishemts or anything
