hi Hugo,

you say the most important:

"Many people come here for the friendship (pokermates) that exist here and it's the detail that makes PokerTH a unique software."

There are cheaters here??? just beat them..

Best regards
Nelly

Hi all,

I saw under the "5 Minute Fame" display an avatar called "kiDDos death". I interpreted this as an avatar set up to express hatred towards kiDDo.

Whatever kiDDo may have done it's just not right that anyone should be able to use avatars (or game names) in this way.

"kIDDos Death" profile goes on to be homophobic with a disguised threat of violence towards gay people (playing with "beat" as in winning the game with a better card but actually meaning violence towards gay people).

This avatar should be deleted.

Kind regards,

TAC

I am not sure if I am reading this right but am I to understand that Kiddo' has been banned?
If so then bravo to the admins. He is an obnoxious, abusive little brat (Maybe his CocoPuffs were soggy). Good riddance.

It constantly amazes me how thin-skinned and easily offended some people can be. PokerTH already gives you the tools to ignore a player you do not wish to read comments from. You can already choose not to enter a game with an offensive name (assuming you speak that language). But even if you do not, what difference does it make? It is a poker game. It is not social commentary unless you allow it to be.

There will always be abusive players and they will be just as skillful in figuring out the loopholes in the new 0.9 version. The real question is, how will YOU deal with it.?

I like to think of myself as a considerate and polite guest at any table. I also know that I tend to play at tables with friends I have met here. Of course, there are those who will look at my game history and accuse me of cheating since my percentage of play against certain players is higher. Seriously?

What I am hearing from all of the players who cannot even imagine that there are nasty folks out there and that PokerTh should do everything in its power to prevent them from hurting their feelings... is that we should completely ruin the community of GLOBAL friends that have made this game so great.

Let's do it. Let's ruin the community to placate those few who cannot bring themselves to ignore an abusive player. Rather than learn to laugh at a juvenile player who thinks that slinging insults is a good way to make a player have bad judgment in a game... let's go ahead and prove them right.

Are there abusive players? Yes.
Are there varying levels of being abusive? Also yes.

Who's going to draw the line and tell me who is being abusive and who is not?

Should that not be MY choice?

Grow a backbone, players. And stop feeling like you have to defend the honor of anyone else playing the game.
