I don't play as much as I used to though and the nearest brick and mortar is too far away. The poker boom is effectively over and even most of the home games around here have dried up completely which makes me sad. They used to be really fun.

Sorry,

I use the internet on my phone and logged on and it was in enhanced mode. I was totally lost. So I posted this thread THEN I figured out how to turn it off. Now I have pop up screens for free apps and other crap.


Capitalism is great for the pocketbook but lousy for a social site. Im sure its great for escalante or whoever owns this site now.

You're going to get banned with that attitude Mr.
Cricket, and Wolfgang have clearly stated that you can take it, or leave it.
Easy as that.

Ok, it's a little raucous I'll admit. But it sure beats the door knob threads.

I must admit, I enjoy reading the psychosis inherent in arguing the merits of an antiquated coating system.

I'm glad you find that amusing, TJ. To me, it seems more like wrestling with a pig.
