Thanks for trying. I guess people should post in politics at their own risk.

Neither of the two people (Mat & Wookie, of course) who could help you with this have posted in this thread - perhaps you should PM them.

Re: Finding out why posters have been Banned?

Best of luck with that.

Pulling your life together, that is - that sounds a lot more important. Plus, PMing Wookie shouldn't require much in the way of luck.

Re: Finding out why posters have been Banned?

So, what's the case that a guy who's got a rap sheet from 10 different mods across approximately as many forums, including multiple varied infractions from different mods for racist posting, should be let back because the domineering Wookie is being unreasonable?

I haven't seen any of the 10 posts but are we sure they are racism and not simply speaking indelicately due to personal passion?

I dunno, does assuming someone is a car thief based on nothing but skin color and racial stereotypes count as racism or personal passion?

Was it that bad? **** him in that case.

You've got to keep this forum clean. As long as Bruce is pardoned, because he deserves to.

Bruce is free to post any time he wants to. His posts are also still visible for anyone who wants to review them in all their context. He was never even sanctioned for his racist posts!

Perhaps he simply deprived them of the nuance and complexity that such subjects always deserve?

Anyways I'm not arguing with you or defending the poster.

I'm just an old man yelling at clouds.

I guess I'm just ranting because I believe ALL racism is bad and it's frustrating that many do not share that view.

Why am I ranting here? No idea so I guess I'll stop.

I did not know that. I only know his posting in 4l where I never seen him post racist stuff.

I was wrong about implying that you were heavy handed in this case and I apologize.

I am done with this matter, thanks for the clarification.

I have not.

After the work the SMP kids have put in in defense of Bruce, it's very hard to effectively parody a defense of racism.

Can this be misinterpreted?

How does one consider this non-offensive?

runrrunr92 thought it funny to degrade Vanessa Selbts because she is a lesbian. What does that have to do with poker?

It's pretty funny how you have no problem seeing racism as wrong but can turn around and feel a-okay with making fun of people for being "poor"

eh, I guess funny is not the correct term

Guy was a real champ. Posted this in the TWSS "why don't more women play ONLINE poker?" thread:

And, why would there be? The same can be said for many other sports/activites.

In fact, women are considered to be so inferior, that they are "given" a special tournament at the WSOP along with the casino employees and seniors.

For "online", what's the difference, really? If they can't win, they aren't going to expand into other formats...and, that's obviously what's happened.

For those wanting to jump on the Annette Obrestad train, well, go back and watch that final table that was "won"...what a joke...there is no way that wasn't either fixed or rigged. The heads up at the end was ridiculous. Sure, if it's given away or bought off, someone could win, but under normal conditions it simply does not happen.

Vanessa Selbst and the PokerDonks franchise, is really more like an "invitational" so, winning some of those aren't really much either. But, probably the best (women) chances are going to be the dikes, like in other sports/activties, where they are basically men in women's skin.

Maybe it's time for a new promotion for the "alternative" poker market, and have the WSOP-F, for "freaks". Then, they can have a "world champion" also.

You aren't going to beat them that easily by bluffing away your stack, you've got to get something mighty strong before those things will get off, get up and get out of a tournament. Check what happened to Amir at the PCA. He got diked!
And this in a "someone is impersonating me on skype" thread from a staking forum:

So in the spirit of this thread, here's why her was banned:

Here we go again. I would like to see them first before relying on your liberal judgement that they are in fact racist.

How that poster has treated other humans ITF is not that funny at all. Definitely not a person with a credible opinion on how to deal with various people.
