I think you should probably stop now.


How about you stop being weird about Lon and added like 10 derailing post about him. Thank you.

Congrats you can count multiple posts, any other great derailing you want to offer?

Next time I’ll just report you for being dumb and derailing

In most states, if you say "in my opinion [private figure X] murdered his wife", and the following two things are true:

1. Private figure X did not murder his wife; and
2. The were sufficient facts available to you that a reasonable person in your position would conclude that private figure X did not murder his wife.

You are liable for defamation (and, indeed, defamation per se). And that is the case even if the statement was your honestly held opinion when you said it.

Lon McEachern Knows Mike Postle Is Cheating And I Can Prove It.

The Meme of all Memes.




https://youtu.be/2pjkPCeckuk?t=3531

Lon & Veronica: "I cant use the stream deck HAHAHAHAHAHAHA(Fake Laugh)"

https://youtu.be/2pjkPCeckuk?t=4199

Lon Mceachern (Referring to Justin): "Maybe we could just have him leave here, so he can go do that other job in photography. Then we wont have to deal with him anymore"
Veronica:"But then who would run the show"
Lon Mceachern:"Jenna does a really good job"
Veronica:"thats true, None of us really want to deal with JFK Stones"
Lon Mceachern:" We Have To Deal With JFK and His Grouchy I Don't Have My Tesla Car For 6 Months Because Somebody Rear Ended Me AND I CANT DO IT"
Veronica: "Thats the number one rule, Dont be an *******" "We cant see anybodys cards"
Lon Mceachern: "Why not!"
Veronica: "I don't have those answers"

You are liable for defamation (and, indeed, defamation per se). And that is the case even if the statement was your honestly held opinion when you said it.
You are arguing very specific details, which I do not necessarily disagree with. But again, I was speaking in generalities and not specifically about who murdered whom and what was known to a person about the facts of some supposed wife being murdered. Generally, I stress generally, if one can establish that it would be reasonable to have a certain opinion, the fact it was an opinion is a simple defense against defamation. Of course, what is reasonable and what is not reasonable depends on the specifics of each individual case. But again, I am speaking generally - because someone brought up defamation previously and I thought I would respond about defamation in a general sense. I certainly was not speaking to any specific case, because generally is a good way to help people understand a subject, you know, generally. But yes, you are correct, generally does not apply to all cases because each case revolves around specifics.

Re: Mike Postle cheating allegations (FAQ in first post)

I also think not enough attention has been paid to the "Stone Theory".

I for one, believe that Postle was in possesion of Grays Sports Almanac 2035.

Veronica (Angry_Polak)

Who do you want to play you in the movie?

My vote is Scarlett Johansson, with glasses.

Postle?
Ingram?
Polk?

Notice The chatbox on the right Stones Live Poker​:im a mutha flippin wizard thats how we see the cards
Kasey and Scott again are trying to tell the viewers about mikes cheating. The winnings are again reported in the Chatbox incorrectly.
The girl in the middle who played in this game is supposedly up 1k on the report, she makes a joke about not telling her husband(she was actually down money this session).
Notice the stream is labeled Veronica and Friends. Veronica isn't even here Kasey and Scott mention this at the end as well.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqq-...utu.be&t=15460 Again notice the commentary in this hand.

(Im quoting xenocide the orginal finder abover).

Guys this is crazy, watch this hand with the commentary and while viewing the live chat. Its unbelievable, “im a mutha flippin wizard thats how we see the cards”. Is typed out by stones . He says “we”. This could be taylor or Jfk. Probably Taylor. This punk is getting cocky! Not only has mike just made the sickest play humanly possible but his accomplice is bragging about it in the chat! Stones also makes a comment about the software pokergfx inthe youtube live chat 20 mins earlier. WTF WTF WTF

I just wanted to repost this one time from this morning.

Re: Mike Postle cheating allegations (FAQ in first post)

Has anyone read the court doc? I read the whole thing and the most interesting thing is in it is that is cites a specific incident that Mike Postle told a commentator that only "two of our cards" were displayed on stream on that infamous PLO hand. It went on to say that he couldn't have known that because he had not viewed the broadcast at that point.

Somebody asked in the chat how the commentators or crew can see the cards, then they explained it was through RFID. When they say in chat they are a wizard, this is likely just a joke. This is highly likely to be absolutely nothing.

It's like heroin. You go in thinking you can handle it and not do it every day and get a habit. But then you do it more than you should and when you get away with it, you think you'll be fine.
