I heard that Steam nor the game developer will provide oversight over the mod store. That basically means that QA standards are non-existent so you can expect junk being thrown up in hopes of a quick buck.

Correct. Valve expects players to police the mods.
My opinion about paid mods? No thanks. Already paying 60 euro for a game, and 60 more for official mods AKA DLC.
I'm not saying someone shouldn't be rewarded for their work, just that I don't see a whole lot of people paying for unofficial content that might break the game, that someone will abandon after 2-3 patches and will never bother coming back and fixing it.
Kudos to modders who won't follow this and will keep their mods free.
Not only that but they expect original mod owners to submit a DMCA if someone is stealing their work. So if the original mod maker is MIA or something, anyone could take their work and monetize it on Steam.
Then there's the few people on Nexus who are already taking down their free mod downloads so they can put a price tag on it through the Steam Workshop.

I agree, this is called greed and dictatorship/despotism in my opinion.
They started a while ago by removing options useful for most gamers while tampering with the forums, sure, they added new toys...to hide their new rules
And who says i will get support from the Modder if his mod interferes with other mods? Yes i have 24h money back but what if the mod works at first and then on a specific level the mod gets bugged.
There are NO regulations on this, more like, here upload you mod and the rest is up to you. There will be a lot of Scam and a lot of mods who arent originaly from the true creator.
I for myself will never pay for a mod, donations are ok.
Also 25% received for a mod? I don't think so. Someone is being a bit pedantic there about the percentage amount. I am sure it is a bit more than that.
