re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Foodblog, and Forum Discussion

i don't play internet poker for a living but wow you guys are a bunch of douchebags

edit: guess i shouldn't say wow. i figured you guys were d-bags anyway. didn't realize you were such a bunch of haters though. couldn't hack it yourselves but it sure makes you happy when the guys that can aren't allowed to anymore.

the people taunting players who cant play anymore are doing so in real bad taste, even for the SE FAQ thread. that's like taunting someone for getting laid off from his job with no prospects of getting another job in the industry. this is bad **** guys.

re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Foodblog, and Forum Discussion

when was the last time victor made money playing poker on the internet? i mean i think one of us was very mad and is right now quite happy.

i might lose $500 if they freeze the accounts before my withdrawal goes through. i guess i'm a little upset about that. but i'm not mad. this doesn't really affect me.

i'm just grossed out by the behavior of some haters that may or may not use skype a whole lot.

its been about 2.5 yrs. yet he hasnt had a job and doesnt necessarily feel motivated to seek one yet. hmm, wonder how such a losing busto player can persevere in such fashion.

and not only that, he has a sum frozen and inaccessible on the sites.

perspective tho.

re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Foodblog, and Forum Discussion

perhaps you are right, vic. maybe i was being unfair when i judged you. so i will present the facts as i see them:

there is a thread on the most popular poker forum on the internet about how internet poker is getting shut down, at least in the us. this thread is obv being read by many internet poker players, many of whom are concerned about losing their livelihood and possibly a bunch of money.

so a bunch of guys who don't or no longer make a living playing poker basically run through the thread yelling "you lost your jobs! lol!"

is that unfair, victor? please correct me if i'm wrong and i will apologize.

re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, Foodblog, and Forum Discussion

what if some of them can’t play poker again until after they’ve lost their house/apt and car and maybe other stuff? what if some of them have families that depend on that money? or does that make it even more hilarious? jfc. if you guys want to laugh it up on skype that’s one thing but trolling that thread makes you some of the biggest haters on 2+2.

hey i know this sweet thread about a guy whose wife had a miscarriage you guys can troll next. it’ll be ok because some skypers have kids and he can always have another one anyway. gimme a minute and i’ll dig up the link for you.

I'm not bitter about that. I'm glad I found that out a long time ago and have since moved on with my life. A lot of the people so devastated right now were probably even done a favor since most of the posters on this forum are delusional about whether or not they can "make it as a pro" and even more delusional about how awful that life might be unless they achieve the highest of successes.

It's more about me just generally taking pleasure in the misfortunes of others and not so much about bitterness. This is a fairly common human characteristic afaik.

Thats extremely sad and unfortunate. Don't use this thread to "hate" on people who just lost their livelihoods. I don't care if its happening elsewhere, then you can do it there. This is not the place for it.

Phildo,

No more discussion on this please. I just think that this is a conversation that is just going to lead to no where.

Needle, don't go down this path. Deleting posts left and right is not the answer. Let them say what they've got to say, and if it crosses the line rulewise, then use the ban. Doing it this way just makes you look petty. You're better than this. Seriously.

Don't think anyone is actually unsympathetic toward those who play for a living. I'm certainly not, it's an awful situation. And whoever finds it funny is being a douchebag for the sake of being a douchebag, which is lame.

But Phildo should be banned for being such a weirdo all the time, can we make a weirdo ban?

I really don't mind if people think I'm petty or dislike me or whatever. But I don't want this unfortunate situation to spill in a discussion of hatred in this forum. I'll leave banning for those that think that banning someone helps the cause, I don't believe in bans.

Its a handful of trollful posts that were deleted, those people can PM me if they have issue and I'll give them my side of the story. If they can convince me otherwise that I am wrong I have no problem fixing it. But just allowing trolling is unacceptable, especially for this subject.

No he's not. He's actually even worse. Been under the radar as an awful mod for a while now. I think his emo sadness makes people feel bad for him.

Needle,
It's not that you are petty, it's that your modding decisions frequently show a tonedeafness about that standards of SE.
