Humble Bundle Steam Keys where accounts are linked? Can I give them away?

I have a bunch of Steam keys that came with Humble Bundles that I have no use for.
I hadn’t realised that my Humble Account was linked to my Steam Account at the time of purchase so am wondering if the unused keys are tied to my Steam account meaning they can’t be given away?
I’ve contacted Humble but no reply yet apart from the automated responses.
Thanks

Steam keys are valid until they are activated in steam.

Thanks. So what is the purpose of linking a Humble and Steam account?

Not sure to be honest. Maybe validation, spam control, spying.
I think it was something they implimented years ago. To try to stop people selling keys on and buying loads of bundles for profit. Not sure why they'd want to do that.... I mean more bundles sold even if it is to profiteers... has to be a good thing for humble bundle.

I seem to remember that having your steam account linked, used to mean that you could redeem them to your steam account directly from humble bundle. Now it's the more traditional approach of giving you a steam key that in theory anyone could redeem.
Thanks all.
Well I will start by giving a few away and see if people can register them okay.
