Let's not hold our breath there. People are all convincing themselves that poker getting shut down was a blessing in disguise, and that regulation and decriminalization is coming. I have my doubts. Outside bird law, I don't really know enough to speculate too confidently about much of anything that goes on, but I will be shocked it the US market comes back any time soon.I think it's mostly a fantasy. I've seen a lot of American pros who were rat-fucked by Black Friday, but the sick thing is that as screwed as they are, few are emotionally able to move on. I'm not sure if it's that poker is such a disgusting way to live that they all had to construct this false ideal that working for a living is an unacceptable alternative, or if it's just that the people who would get involved in something like that are just extremely likely to have all sorts of social anxieties and complexes by default, but the result is pretty sad. I know people with families and no savings, who are basically punting their future, trying to scrape by on pennies from a few fly-by-night sites or Bodog, who are moving away to Canada and Mexico, basically delaying the search for a sustainable solution, all in the hopes that their pipe dream of a law pops up, and they can go back to making an unimpressive amount of money and feeling independent. There are probably kids who won't be able to afford college as a direct result of the belief that poker is coming back soon.Poker really is a sick trap for a lot of people, that lets them do things and believe things that just couldn't normally make sense. It's an addiction to many, which further makes it funny that we would glorify what these people do, and pretend it's all just savvy math wizzes who are too smart to work.

Hey, sorry if it came across like that. It wasn't an attack on anyone, and I don't know who you are or what your situation is. And I could care less about making moral judgement like that. I laugh at some people in that situation, but most of them are my friends and it's in good humor or veiled concern. I really hope everything works out for you and your kids.
12. When menstruating, use a product that right for your menstrual flow. A tampon too big can irritate and develop fungus. A product left in too long can cause bacteria or fungus build up. Products can be changed at least every 4 hours. Except when sleeping, they can be left in for the night

Did you actually? Was it for poker reasons?I know a lot of people did it, and it's becoming clear from responses on AIM that a lot of people think I'm talking about them. If I don't know you well, I assure you that you are not an intended target, and I wasn't trying to be a dick. A lot of young guys with no overhead and no responsibility are doing similar things, and their ambitions and temperament make it a fine choice I'm sure. I meant that to display the sort of sick trap that life and mentality can be for people. If you are happy, haven't hurt anyone's future with it, and aren't worried about your own future, please know that I meant no implied degeneracy to you just because you still play poker.

Ya I don't have much of a future so I said **** it, Cabo for 6 months, I'm down. I've made a good amount of money the first few months and really enjoyed the town. The weather and the food is great, everyone is very friendly and speaks decent English. I'll be coming back in March and re evaluating my future, but until then lets party naked and enjoy Mexico.

People, we are losing focus here. Let's get back to the point of the thread. Im afraid this forum is well beyond its peak and is never going to come anywhere close to what it was. If DN promoted some yes it would get more traffic but without an online card room attached its pretty pointless because there is no motivation. Other forums already passed it by years ago (as far as a strategy destination) and most of the good to great players no longer post here in regard to actual poker discussion. Personally I have made some friendships here with people from all over (savagerebel, nvrquit, lurbz, tbrick412, kobe2odom8 to name a few) and life goes on. This forum could be resurrected in the future if online poker reopens fully to the US market but until then this is just how its going to be.That being said a site redesign is long overdue and would be nice.The only solution I have is after I win the lottery, the Nobel Peace prize and the Calder trophy for NHL rookie of the year at age 36 I will be so famous I could wear my FCP on tv all the time and that would clearly drive traffic back to the site. However, this is clearly such a ludicrous scenario it'll never happen. That hat is never showing up.
you're friends with Lurbz? c'mon man!
