yeah your resentment of poker players can't be at all tied to the fact that they consistently bring up the fact that you tried to [censored] them

Lots of poor dunkers in the world.

Just because the half the government wants to enforce their morality on others and the other half wants their piece of the action, and because of this chose to implement new laws forcing this "shadyness" doesn't change right and wrong.

Spoiler:
I guess shadyness is the wrong word. I guess uncertainty is a better description. Although in the end, most people were able to deposit/withdraw, there were many loopholes/red tape/frustrations. Plus through reading these forums, we've heard of stories of people not being able to cash out. Something wasn't 100% right. Or not close enough to where it wasn't a risk.

And also, +1 to Seth. I hope those who were successful are able to realize they've picked up skills that will likely translate in education or the job market.

+1 to Seth. I feel really badly for all the guys who have money in limbo, and to a lesser extent that some of them *may* have some tough times in the coming months if they can't get up and running. But that said, the sense of entitlement from some of the online pro's posts I've seen elsewhere is pretty disgusting.

Sure. But as a general comment, being giddy about the misfortune of others and mocking it is just sad/pathetic. BTW, I don't mean "lol Steelers" - it's a sporting tradition to mock a hated rival's failures. Those don't have real life ramifications. Not for most people anyway.

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

Don't disagree. I think the mocking is pretty distasteful and really ****ty. I have lots of friends with significant money in limbo right now. I hope they are able to get things going again soon as obviously wgaf if people are playing poker online other than some feds.

But the mega entitlement, especially for something that was so predictable is really gross too. I'm biased as not only I, but most of my friends who play for a living all saw this coming and made efforts to get regular jobs and transition (tho they do have money offshore ldo), realizing that counting on 20 years of poker income was folly. But even considering that, it's pretty shocking the naivete of so many otherwise smart people. Then again, considering the common background of so many players, I guess maturity and perspective on the real world is the one thing that I should've expected to be most lacking.

Funny, except I haven't said anything about taking joy in what's happened. I have way too many friends impacted for that to even be a consideration (not that it would be anyways. Heck, I'm doing quite well with my life tyvm and have absolutely zero regrets).

Heck, the most likely case is the sites are back and running ala Bodog.

Ummmm WTF clown all I posted on the subject was "Needle gonna emo". I'm out money at the moment too and actually find the trolling to be in bad taste. And bowens is rarely in Skype anymore so before you want to be a dick for no reason how about having a ****ing clue what you're talking about.

I'd like to note I have the honor of being the only person banned from the SkypeZilla, though sadly I didn't do anything cool to earn the honor. I banned Manji for some rando FAQ violation for like 1-Day so he kicked me out of SZ for life. Serious business going on there.

I'm pretty sure Jetto has been reached out to and declined the invite. He's obviously more than welcomed to discuss NBA and sometimes life.

Victor,

If you make one more post with the cardiotard account between now and the end of the ban of your main account I'm going to permaban this one and change the other one to a week. Including responding to this post.
