Derailing again....Yes there are plenty of sleazy low lives in poker but I spent years in the corporate world and more years in the academic world and I've seen as much dishonestly and backstabbing and angle shooting in both those worlds as I have in poker. Many people by nature are lazy ass douchebags who had rather cheat to get ahead than work hard or they just have no talent or ability to get ahead any other way. In the poker world these days cheaters get called out and as a rule once that happens it's pretty much over for them, at least most of the time but in the corporate world they usually get rewarded for their underhanded illegal shit. I live in a small town and I know of several people who have been arrested for embezzlement, fraud and other illegal crap and I know plenty more who've done it gotten away with it, continue to get away with it and profit from it. Moral of the story, people are generally lazy, backstabbing, underhanded sleazebags but plenty are not! The poker world is no worse than any other world. Trust no one and never be disappointed. I do think some legislation or intrastate poker at least will happen, I think it's pretty much inevitable. Too much money for our grubby government to give up. When it does, things like this forum will improve. As for Jesus and Howard, no I didn't know them personally and I was pretty much being facetious. I have no faith in anyone so I'm never disappointed :-)
There is this sort of self-fancied "cynicism" people kick around now, I think to rationalize being complete, wallet-dangling suckers, or to trying to mask lazy beliefs with a facade of glib worldliness. When someone notes what a rube people are for taking some kind of bait, the "cynic" responds with vague, blanket distrust of everything, creating a false equivalency, as if somehow finding shreds of principally similar nature on one side can cancel out the titanic degree of corruption on the other. I really don't feel like I have to make an argument for how business doesn't come close to the gambling world in how well your association with it can predict that you are the sort of scumbag whose disconnect from reality has bred an antisocial degeneracy, whose character has either been corrupted by his lifestyle, or whose lifestyle was selected by by his social and moral defects. You can say that people in any setting are sleazy, but to take it to the level where you act like it's an equilibrium is utter nonsense. I've seen it used to claim that Fox News is no worse than CNN. I've seen it used to claim that acupuncturists are no worse than drug companies, and it's an irritating fallacy.
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

Fallacy on a daily basis. That alone will improve this forum.

If I had any fckn idea what you were actually trying to say here I'd think I have just been terribly insulted and called a scumbag who is disconnected from reality which in turn has bred in me antisocial degeneracy. Oh and my character has been corrupted! Holy Fck dude, seriously. I'm about as far from either anti-social or degenerate or corrupt as you can get. Hell I buy food cards for homeless people with my last $20 bucks. I even feel slightly bad when I grossly suck out on someone. I'm generally a nice person but I've spent years working in the corporate and academic world and I've been back-stabbed and screwed over more times than I can count. I've only been associated with poker people for a few short years and so far I haven't been screwed over by anyone so my perceptions are obviously clouded by my own actual reality.

How can you expect anymore from a bunch young, smart guys with the social skills of a garden slug? That's the problem in a nutshell, it was never more obvious than when online players tried to start playing live after Black Friday, they were so ridiculously socially awkward they could barely function out from behind a computer.
Oh

It's also the reason so many of them (some of you all, not you Kobe) can't do anything but play poker online since it takes a certain amount of "normal" social skill to function in the normal working world.
Who?!I'm pretty sure Donky4life has no social skills...we can start with him!
