Lol. I feel like that too. The thing is I don't want to be against zoom. Its just that recently every new change has been negative for us. So I'm a little skeptical when Stars introduces a new game that conveniently creates a ton of extra rake.
With the weight contributed rake change there were people arguing that its not going to make things worse but even stars ended up admitting that it was able to take more $$ off the table this way. Luckily a lot of guys on the forums did something about it and got stars to at least lower the rake some to make up for this. But if people didn't question it I really doubt stars would have lowered the rake after the change and the poker economy would be worse off right now.
Stars doesn't have much strong competition in the online poker market. Which makes it a lot easier for stars to charge more for its service. When we no longer have the option to say "FU, I am switching sites" we lose a lot of power.
I just think we should all look at big changes and make sure its not making the games worse off. If stars is able to take more $$ off the tables in rake then that's less $$ in play for all of us.
