Default Not enough talk about Paul Phillips

I read Paul P's blog about once a week and browse it for any poker content.

I was going to respond to his blog post about Mat Sklansky claiming he didn't know that Paul Phillips was "the" Paul Phillips and found out I was BANNED from posting on his site. That was wierd, I have only post maybe twice in the last year, and those posts remained and caused no controversy. The only thing I could think is that he did it in response to me stating that I didn't feel he added anything sustantial to 2+2 that would be missed. I feel that most of his posts are little pissing contests with other posters. I love his poker strategy posts, but he rarely makes those. I found it really hard to believe that Paul would really remember me enough to ban me but I found this there today aimed at another poster.

Hey, didn't you refer to me as "totally disgraceful" on 2+2? I don't meant to get all remembery on you, but you also started a thread titled, and I'm paraphrasing here, "famous poker players who DON'T suck." So you can understand why I'd find it odd that you'd post in my blog (or even read it, for that matter) like nothing happened.

Like nothing happened? Nothing did happen man, he made a post in a web forum. Not like he pissed on your new shoes.

Well then what does he expect. Getting banned for speaking the truth is not against Blog policy.

Hmm, Mason banned Paul for criticizing the site's user interface and behavior of mods (no, really!). Paul refused to apologize and made a snappy comment. If you really were dumb enough to think that what Paul did was "disgraceful" I guess you'd be dumb enough to post on his blog pretending like nothing had happened.

And at the risk of being banned, the UI on this site is [censored]. Why am I typing new posts into a 9 line by 28 char text entry box? That's worse than DOS 1.0!

On your home page you can adjust this little problem.

And I thought I was the only one around 2+2 old enough to remember DOS 1.0. [img]/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]


hell, I even remember CP/M!

Not sure who "you" is, but that comment was not posted by me. And yeah but I do not think there is anything to pretend about - nothing did happen.

As another poster said there is wayyy too much talk about phillips. He is not very importnat no matter how much he believes he is. He was just another poster who was rude and didn't contribute much anyway. We didnt lose out he did. How did he get this reputaion as a great poker player anyway?
