I am also very good friends with her cat Snowflake, who is one cool cat indeed.

thank you Mason for posting that. Any one who knows Sue and spends any time with her knows that she is a very intelligent person and very very kind and caring.

I wonder why one of wbps posts which said the above at length got deleted like after 10 minutes or so, not sure if it was the whole thread or just that post. Someone please explain whats wrong with that, whereas the "Brandi Porn Fund" and "Would you hit Annette_15?" e.g. are/were up for ages.

Because the cleanup is just now starting .. they can't go back in time!

regarding the description of NWP - All they are is a hate site masquerading under the claim of no censorship.

damn thats about a perfect description. The few times I browsed there when I was looking for poker forums I was hoping against hope that those posters weren't adults ..sadly they are

So i will add a post count in it, if someone has more than 1 post on NWP they are considered bannable.
This line of thought is as screwed up as the NWP people.

Scary.

Re: bannings

I browse NWP daily, but I'm starting to tire of all the porn on the site, especially the gay porn. You take a chance of catching male genitalia everytime you open up NWP thread, the site is impossible to browse when you're in room with other people.

Hi bibytebit:

That's exactly the way we see it. NWP is simply a hate site where pleasure is derived by hurting people. And it is simply disgusting. There is no other description for it.

And again, if Dan Druff is really the stand up guy that some have said, he should immediately disassociate himself from NWP and make it clear that he will have no part of the hate.

Best wishes,
Mason

Those lowlifes on NWP don't deserve to even browse this forum much less post on it.
Hi Stuey:

We have no objections if anyone goes over to NWP and participates there. That's their business, not ours. However, if they also notice how disgusting NWP is, that's also fine with us.

Howver, if we do find out that posters on the NWP site, who are also posters on 2 + 2, are participating in the hate and are just in a piling on mode as far as we are concerned, we will certinly look at it from that point of view.

Best wishes,
Mason

Re: bannings

I see Dan Druff is banned for not disassociating himself from NWP.

Is this the same reason "Mark Seif" banned?

Re: bannings

How is this surprising to anyone? wpr101, here. I had about 7,500 posts on here maybe 70% of them strategy posts and got banned for some pretty dubious reasons. Ironic how a lot of the people who used to contribute the most to the forums have been banned. I rarely visit 2+2 anymore.

Re: bannings

Can anyone tell me which televised WSOP FT it was that Dan Druff made? Or was it a circuit event? I thought I remembered him twirling his jacket around or something??

[e.g. nobody would have assumed that the Full Tilt strategy guide was anything but a dishrag until a bunch of ppl read it and said it was good; if it was published by 2+2, everyone probably would have assumed that without waiting to hear opinion.]

i think a lot of 2+2ers such as myself would not like to see this place degenerate into NWP and this, like it or not, is a necessary first step. [altho im guessing there are a ton of ppl who'd be happy to have 2+2 become NWP, which is sad]

Paul, however, should never have been banned. mason was looking to get rid of him, and this should never have been his mentality. when u have someone as great and intelligent as paul as a member of your site, you try and work out differences and establish compromise. u dont run him off the site cuz he's threatening your ego.
the paul phillips situation was the most disappointing thing i've ever seen on this site.

Paul was banned. Mason agreed to unban him but Paul insisted on an apology which Mason wouldn't give and Paul then walked. I too got the sense that Mason felt threatened or challenged by Paul and that was that. Paul is opinionated, uncompromising, and suffers fools poorly; as a consequence, he's controversial. Call me a fanboy if you like, but his analysis and insight are at times absolutely stunning. Mason handled the situation in an arrogant and ineffective way IMO, to the great detriment of 2p2.

My recall is a little fuzzy, but I'm about 90% that this is right.

I don't think Mason is saying that, but i could be wrong.

I interpreted it as if NWP posters just come over here to support the NWP agenda (which is a sick and twisted agenda) then they will be banned. Not just for posting on NWP.

That may have been, though I don't think I was aware of that part of it. Not recalling that, I'm now guessing here, but did the volunteer mod threaten to ban Paul first? I can easily see Paul lighting up a torch on an issue like that.

Paul is direct and aggressive and contrarian to authority. But I would think that you would recognize his contributions to the debate around here.
