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

You don't believe in bans, but deleting posts (that don't violate the T&C) is ok?

And you know I think the world of you, but get the **** out with that last sentence. If that's how you feel, then you better get to work. You've got a lot of deleting ahead of you. I suggest you start with TZ, and the soccer threads.

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.
Having a miscarriage/getting laid off from a reputable company is not equivalent to having tens of thousands bound up in a fraudulent operation.

Getting laid off from an illegal job is super unfair though.

How are we bitter?

If an online poker pros backup plan was essentially "they won't stop this", then I can't say I feel bad for you nor do I consider myself bitter. I am just laughing.

Basically plan better , as you said.

Shocker, tsc is yapping about something he knows nothing about. I think all poker players live in fear of being arrested for their illegal activity....

You've said some really terrible things in the past that show an amazing level of selfishness and lack of compassion for others, but this is a bad sign even for you. Hopefully someday you'll grow up and realize that no, it isn't common to take pleasure in the misfortunes of others and thinking that is just a way to rationalize you being an *******.

TSC,
What about online poker pros who had backup plans, but are still hurt a ton by this?

I guarantee I know at least 10x more about this subject than you and it is quite dire.

You are also ridiculously out of line with every post. but it's not like we don't expect this from you. The sad thing is I don't even think you are just trolling.

I was probably one of the most vocal people on the whole site about pros having to plan better and was even called a fear monger by some. However I would never take pleasure in this and I also understand how difficult of a transition this is for some guys. Deriving pleasure from someone else losing their ability to earn a living is beyond my comprehension.

I hope everyone gets their money.

I know it sucks for some people, but there had been this growing level of arrogance around being a poker pro and frankly I am glad to see that backfire on some people.

Those who planned ahead will probably pick up the pieces and move on to something else. But if your whole life revolved around playing poker online, then you will be experiencing a painful lesson and really its your own fault.

This isn't really the right venue to talk about this, plus I am on my phone and typing anything lengthy is a pain. Let's just say my few posts on this were just some quick trolls and nothing else. Sorry if I bothered anyone.

It's more like deriving pleasure from the agony their putting themselves through with their gross overreactions since they'll all be just fine.

You realize that ability never should have existed under the laws we currently have?

That's basically the bottom line for me, but some people are acting as though something got taken away, yet they should never of had it.

Btw I think the law is stupid.

something did get taken away, you ignoramus. "it never should have existed", who gives a ****, it did exist (for almost 5 years after UIGEA).

its really pathetic that people are getting pleasure out of this, even by 2p2 standards.

This new poker ban doesnt affect me whatsoever, but to laugh at their misfortune (especially on this site) is just a straight up as.shole move.
