Curious if running a server (CSGO) is ok if only login as anonymous instead of using a Steam account. On the SteamCMD wiki it says:

"For security reasons it is recommended that you create a new Steam account just for your dedicated servers."

Maybe I am just too lazy to create accounts for each server. Just wondering if you guys create the Steam accounts for each server or just login as anonymous.

It's totally fine to use anonymous login when downloading the dedicated server files for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.

When CS:GO originally released you needed to login to an account that owned the game to download the SRCDS files, Valve lifted that restriction ages ago and it looks like no one updated the their wiki page.
