Trailer Trash of the Internet

You know, I am usually an even keeled person .. slow to anger.. but the incredible bullshit I read on 2+2 makes me really angry. It is the thread about Lord Geznikor at Rymes with Poker. Reading the 2+2 idiots really makes me appreciate the support provided by the Blogging community.

The first thing that bothers me about most of the posts is the incredible arrogance and stupidity of each and every one of the responses. It starts out pathetic and gets worse.

“Decided to post this link with the recent influx of "should I become pro" posts. A lesson perhaps that for every Dynasty or ZeeJustin there may be dozens of these guys.
Not to mention its good for a laugh, and a cry. Start with the older posts at the bottom and work up for a better narrative.”

What a freaking moron. First off why would you ever laugh at someone’s misfortune. LG took a tumble and I am sure he is hurting about it. What the hell gives anyone the right to laugh at something like that? Why don’t you just go out and kill a few kitties while your at it asshole?

It then proceeds into ramblings about how everyone one of these guys are such good players and making so much money. A real my dick is bigger than your dick session. First off I am SURE there are plenty of people out there with bigger dicks than all of you put together. However, it would be hard to find anyone who is as big a dick as any one of you. How the hell can you read about someone’s misfortune and take it as a license to brag about how good you are? Some people are so insecure it makes ME sick and DISGUSTED.

The thing that pissed me off the most though was everyone thinking that they knew LG so well. I know nothing about LG. Only what he has written in his Blog. For all I know he could be a great player on a bad streak, or a horrible player waking up to reality. People who skimmed some of his posts all of a sudden think they know everything about him. He is the fish. He works at Grossmans for minimum wage. He is on welfare. He’s lazy. He's stupid. There is no way you can know that much about someone from a Blog alone. You can get an idea of where they are but all of the arrogant comments and assumptions were just pathetic. It is like saying “I am such a good player that I gleamed everything about this guys life by reading some postings and can classify him in some stupid pigeon hole”. I have never read so many jackass comments in my entire life.

The only sensible comment on the entire thread came from LinusKS:

“I thought his posts were interesting, well-written, and honest.
That's something you see too little of, here. Because, of course, everybody at 2+2 is a winner.”

Yeah, you’re all real winners in my book.

Hey, nice post. RGP is just as bad. I got a blog going where I'm trying to turn $200 into $2000 just for fun. I've been posting my results weekly on RGP. I went on a mad rush the past 2 weeks and actually cracked the $2000 mark momentarily. In a few of my posts, I mentioned the great rush was out of the ordinary and was expecting the cards to turn sour. They actually did this past week with me losing a little under $700.

People on RGP flamed me for not having a losing week. Hell, I was only 4 weeks in. They called BS. Blah blah blah. I have never seen someone post that they are a losing player except for the occasional "I crush the B&M games, but online is rigged" posts.

The RGP people flamed another guy because he was a college dropout and "turned pro" by multi-tabling $1/2 tables and bonus whoring. He admitted that his cost of living was very low, so his goal was obtainable playing the low limits. I enjoyed reading his posts. Well, now I guess he's quit posting because of the negative response.

That's why I freely admit that I'm negative online and keep a running total at my blog. I do hope to get to even someday, but I think I'm one of the only bloggers blogging about recouping a massive loss. :)

excellent post. as i told lord g, i'd hate to have my blog dissected by the small-minded peanut gallery in forums like that.

but to lord g's credit, he accepted criticism at face value and is still mounting a comeback. let's hope he laughs last.

takes criticism at face value? now there's a peanut gallery. you are talking abot a guy, who, if you held $10,000 out in your hand and told him, "all you need to do is reach out with your right hand, and take this money, and it's yours." he would sit for a minute, say, "no you are wrong, i'll will take it with my left hand." and he will lose it . . .

i have first hand experience with this person. i have interacted with him face to face, and i have seen him interact with many people (mostly unrelated to poker), and it's always the same. if he has a question about something, any feedback or answers he receives are met with, "that's not true." "i'm not sure if that's right." "hmm, well i'll try it this way, because i think it's better."
