Default ridiculing the fish

Why on God's green earth do people ridicule the fish?
Driving them away from the tables.
It completely baffles me.

Good post, Hyde. I play low limits and cheap SNGs and see this too often. Usually I let the first comment or two slide. But more than that, and I post something like "If you're so great, why aren't you playing 20-40 and trying to win some real money?" And if I get a reply to that, I post "If you were really a poker genius, you wouldn't be pissing on the people who are building the pots you're trying to win." The second comment usually gets the a-hole to leave the table.

I didn't vote because there is NO valid reason to critcize a bad player...I've been watching it happen (in B&M casinos) for 40 years....Bad News: the people who do it will never change [img]/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Many (good) players have irrational beliefs.
For example: "I'm the best player at this table, so I must win, and if I don't it's terribly unfair." and "If my hand is a favorite it should win, and it's terrible if it doesn't." And apparently many people believe that "players who play very badly and are morons and should not play so bad."

If you believe this, consciously or subconciously, you will be pissed every time one of the above happens.

My standard line: "Is this clinic free?" That usually calms down the rabble.

I admit I sometimes ask " did somebody forget their meds today?"

I collect stamps.
I just spent $4000 on a piece of paper 1"X 2" printed about
130 years ago in a country you never heard of.
It's none of your goddam business how I spend my money.
It's none of my goddam business how you spend yours.

Which is why I keep the chat shut off........

Some people do change. When I started playing poker I figured that if anybody ever made a play and it ended up costing me it was my duty to remind him that. Since than I have learned to stop and rarely if ever use chat. The only time I ever get in arguements with people is as a joke where I make ridiculous statments, or occasionsly if I am on mega-tilt.
