I have been reading a ton about the railbirds and the rude comments thrown about. Now I understand that being rude in chat is not the funnest thing. I am constantly victimized by the hatahs and the jealous fuckers who wish they were as good as me. I get badmouthed by everyone from AlCantHang to Sucko and everyone in between. Point in case whenever I get close to the money I get thousands of negative chat messages calling me a donkey and telling me I have no chance at all. Lucky for me I have something called: SELF CONFIDENCE. If someone calls me an idiot or a donkey or says I can not play I just shrug it off to their jealousy and lack of understanding about even the most basic fundamentals of poker. This means you Sucko.
The solution that some people have come up with is to stick around and say "Good Game".. "Good luck all".. while silently kicking their cat and throwing the keyboard across the wall. I mean what kind of solution is that? Do people really like living as hypocrites? I almost always cringe when someone says "good game".. after some dooshbag called off his entire 30BB stack with top pair three kicker. It was not a fucking good game.. it was a fucking retarded game and you should be fucking shot and dumped in a trash can. Ok. Possibly I go too far. However you get the point.
Now calling someone a fucktard in the chat window is probably not a nice thing to do but is it really that hard to deal with? Guys like Scott Fishy-man and any of the pro players have to deal with that shit all the time. Just ignore it. Pass it off as someone being mad at losing. It is a totally understandable reaction to being a loser. If you were happy you lost then you really would be a fucktard.
I normally try to not berate people in the chat when they make stupid plays against me. I have a moderate success rate at doing this. I get a lot of practice though and perhaps someday I will be a little nicer all the time. I am not against being slightly nicer. I will not ever tell some dick who called off his entire stack with shit that he played a "good game" though.
So basically just deal with it. The age of the bitching out in chat is upon us and I doubt it ever leaves. We all tend to be more open and honest when the medium is computer communication be that girlie chat or poker chat windows and I do not think it is a bad thing. I am happy to know when someone hates a play I make and more than happy to show them why they are wrong. If they will not listen then that is a loss for them. Until next time. Peace.
