Definitely sexist too. You can't go around telling women they are good looking.

Asking a black woman if she likes white guys... maybe not racist but certainly bringing up race in an unnecessary way. The whole thing is quite uncalled for when the lady is on a poker forum.

America has a long and storied tradition of racism. The foundation of that racism was laid by Europe. Until reparations are paid in full this is not a subject that should be ignored on this platform.

Asking someone publicly if they like a group of people is not going to produce an answer that will make them look good. Most especially if it is sexual in nature.

Can we also not involve a people lorded over by a string of hemophiliacs, who are inbred, colonialist oppressors in any discussions on Poker, an American game ?

Stand on your side of the ocean, thank you. Ameruca !

I still can't tell if this was some joke purchase for laughs or if they're really going to gaf abt the community or just monetize the whole thing like some poker red light district

Part of me thinks they didn't read their calendars correctly and think it's 2001 not 2021

Re: This website has been purchased by us. What is the future of 2+2?

The new owners seem a little brash and reckless posting the picture with the whores and immediately getting rid of the ads, which are presumably 2+2's main source of revenue.

The main owner has a very sophisticated poker product. I can understand that Mason probably thought they would lead the site in a good direction and would not have sold it to someone he thought would make a mess of it. Also, the purpose of the site was to promote the publishing company.

You see what happened to Stars, which was really well run, but is now still one of the better sites, but not at the same level, and you do get concerned about what could happen.

Or, for that matter, who on the internet in 2021 hasn't yet developed ad-blindness? I don't even notice that ****, I have no idea if there were banner ads or not.

Re: This website has been purchased by us. What is the future of 2+2?

Yeah, I probably haven't paid attention to an ad in like 30+ years dating back to the old MicroMachines ads.

I don't even know what the audio ads say, I just know that they come on real loud when I'm at the poker table and someone else is in a big hand so I end up just closing tapatalk and using other apps instead.

Re: This website has been purchased by us. What is the future of 2+2?

this is bizarre really because 2+2 really isnt the best way to get better at poker ( although there is gold on this site) and we certianly dont want to be the quora of poker as it directly hurts our win rates ( in thoery but not really assuming someone actually gets better ) , no offense i love this site but i think this will be a blunder to buy it and change it , if fun players do show up they wont interact well with the crowd on here , almost certainly and instantly anyone with knowledge would migrate somewhere else im guessing . with a bunch of new users i can only see it ( every forum ) turning into the worst that BBV had to offer ( maybe me) , how else could it go?

maybe a recommendation would be somehow having a forum for the older users to access that would be isolated to keep some of the knowledgeable users on here.

I've noticed some members expressed concern about the quality of our intro photo. Obviously, It hasn't been done by a professional photographer. The reason is simple, we live in different countries and there aren't too many photos of us together. But that day was a rare occasion when we got together, took our wives with us, and went to an island. We made a great memory out of it, which we wanted to share with the community.
