i think i ran into him in my basement

Re: Let's Talk About Regs: Stars/Full Tilt

hmm

Also, Does anybody know exactly how Idiot29 got his chat banned?

And is it true that his name was invented because all the names he wanted were taken so he typed in "idiot" and that was taken too so as a joke he typed "Idiot29" and they wouldnt let him change it?

Preferrably Idiot29 would be the best source for this, but he's rude and his friend rakebreak27 aka shortstop27 is rude too, so I doubt they have anything to say.

At least you didn't call Matusow a fat convict. That would have been bad.

Re: Let's Talk About Regs: Stars/Full Tilt

i've noticed the popularity in online poker of "jokes" about:
cancer
death
AIDS
rape

i wish anyone stupid and immature enough to use the terms as public jokes would be perm-banned from poker sites.

On the other hand - I am a genuine advocate of telling all of the donkeys and fish, that they are in fact, donkeys and fish. Nothing wrong with simple zoology.

He had his chat taken away a few times and they warned him that the next time would be permanent, i forget what was said because it happened a very long time ago, its been banned for well over a year......and how would u know he is rude if you can never chat with him?....also, i talk crap when i play for reasons, but with you its different, because you ***** about the most irrational stuff in the world, (the site isn't in a conspiracy against you), its called variance, i know its hard for you to understand because u've been running so well for so long, but u'll start to notice it......and to answer your question about tylerdurden, i have no clue who he is or where he came from

Although I don't even understand one thing about this... QFT.

Also, Donger... Yes I do have a roommate. And yes he completely destroyed most of my bankroll online. And no, I have never really played you online unless you played me on FTP or Stars without my knowledge.

Edit; But I do like to have a lot of fun and joke around. Sometimes I'm serious, sometimes I'm a goof ball and you shouldn't believe a word out of my mouth. It's more fun this way. Am serious about not playing you before though except live.

You guys wanking yourselves over how to grow the game, I suggest not starting or promoting such threads.

You guys just don't get it at all. I'm very glad some of you have no clue as to anything else in poker besides plo8. You can lie in the bed you have made now. Enjoy.

Re: Let's Talk About Regs: Stars/Full Tilt

Rio.. I have no problem with these threads, they go pretty well in the NL forums, with people asking for advice and getting to see how others view them. Critiquing someone's omaha play seems to be a totally different animal in my eyes though. Usually they don't take criticism well.

Certainly glad I have your money in Euros in my account. Must be frusterating to have a currency that depreciates daily.

I'm glad you don't get it either.

Hi RioGossiper – As moderator, I don't like threads like this one where posters discuss other players. The reason is there is a high risk of the thread degenerating into trash talking and trading insults. While that might be fun for some and amusing for others, I feel it has a negative effect on strategy posts.

But while I don’t like threads of this nature, (1) some of the posts in this thread seem cathartic, (2) some very fine posters have responded, (3) obviously feeling differently than I do, and (4) I have a lot of respect for some of these posters.

It’s not clear to me what your own intent is in posting in this thread. I wonder if you are complaining about this thread, or simply trying to insult posters.

In case your intent is to complain about this thread or a post in this thread, let me tell you how to do that.
  • To the left near the bottom of each post there are some little symbols. One of the symbols is a small triangle. With the shell I am using, on my monitor screen it’s a red-bordered white triangle with the letter I inside it. But it may be a different color on your screen.

    At any rate, to complain about a post or thread, you click on that “Report Post” triangle and then write a few words in the space provided. Then you click the “Send Report” button at the bottom of the space provided for you to verbalize your complaint.

    An e-mail message will be immediately sent to all the moderators of this forum, notifying us of the complaint.

    Probably at least within hours, and maybe within minutes, one of us will respond to your complaint. If another moderator has not already dealt with your complaint, I’ll read the post about which you complained and either take immediate action or write a private message to you asking you what the problem is and/or what you want me to do about it.
But nobody has complained about this thread by clicking the “Report Post” triangle, listing a complaint, and clicking on the “Send Report” button.

Even though I don’t like threads of this nature, since nobody has complained, and since I can’t see anything specifically wrong, I’m inclined to neither lock, censure, nor delete this thread.
Quote:
You guys just don't get it at all.
Exactly. But I don’t think in the sense you meant it. After I read your post, I wondered if someone had listed you in some sort of derogatory fashion. But I don't see your name mentioned in anyone’s post.

Thus I have to admit I don't get it.

To me, it seems like your own post is the most offensive post in this thread, since you have insulted other posters of this forum. In case it’s not clear to you, “You guys wanking yourselves over how to grow the game” is insulting trash talk.

I hope this simple warning suffices and no other action on my part will be warranted.

I wrote the above before I read your inappropriate response to Omaha8sPoker. You're on very thin ice.

Calling out fish is a really poor idea. I can think of a few people that have quit online, or live poker games from seeing gossip like those found in this thread. I don't care to mention the cases I know specifically any, but I can point out one great example of cutting your nose to spite your face...Andy Beal.

How they treated him was disgraceful, and he won't be back to give the 'corporation' his business.

i agree it's a poor idea to call out the fish.. but that isn't usually what happens in these threads.. as they are about "regulars" there aren't too many fish regulars in pl 8 because they get broke.

I read these forums about once a week, and I've grown tired of certain people and their behaviour not really so much here, but in the games themselves. Notice I didn't attack anyone specifically this time. As someone who has serious interest in the health of plo8, I don't want certain people going on and on with such topics.

The ego maniacs who really shouldn't have an ego disturb me, and in truth I wish them a painful end, however this is just common sense not to continue such threads.

You obviously are going to allow such threads so there is no point in reporting them. I am simply stating my views on the matter.

Ego wanking is fine, however cutting down others is not. Was this not your original logic? I was never too divergent from your views there despite some attack (certainly deserving) against others.

I'm going to disagree here. There are fewer fish because threads like this.


To quote an action player at a big live game here who used to play the 2k party game, "why would I want to play with those miserable nits when I can play live plo?" Hi/lo is his favorite game, however the hi/lo regs are not.

I am also curious buzz how you know who I am. It isn't a big secret, just curious. You can pm if you want.
