I just tried to create a Steam account. I filled everything out. My user name and password and everything was fine. The one problem was one of those 'are you human' things at the bottom where you have to type what's in the box. Instead of creating the account for me the box just refreshed every time I clicked create account. I've had problems with this before when I tried to recover the password to my Twitter account. I would type everything in perfectly, and the page would just refresh with a new box thing. I was using Firefox, but switched to IE and it did the same thing.
