Subject: Chat Ban on Pokerstars
Last week I got a warning from Pokerstars about using Sharkscope while
playing. Apparently, this has recently been made illegal. According to the
warning I received you can not have the Sharkscope website open while you
play. Fine. Would have been nice if they could have told me this in advance
with a mass email. I had no idea.

Today I lost my chat on Pokerstars for 24 hours for *talking* about a
players stats. I didn't have any prohibited site open, nor did they allege
that I did. All I did is mention a player's stats from memory (total tourney
winnings of 17k in 2008).

I know it's only 24 hours but it still pisses me off. How is this fair? I am
really starting to get fed up with Pokerstars.

Those bastards on Full Tilt banned my chat, too, and solely because I
made a thoughtful invitation that one of my co-players perform various
creative uses of their anatomy, as well as some helpful suggestions as
to how they might supplement their diet.

Mention in passing that your Congressman has clout on the upcoming internet
gambling ban and you're considering writing to him about the questionable
fairness of online chat rules.

Type Zieg Hiel and see what happens. A Jew might have to be at the

I just used SS to look up some donkeys after I was eliminated and dogged
them out. I guess I will be silent soon.

I'm sure they will give you a warning first. The thing is, if you read their
FAQ on the issue, its clear they can see what else you have open on your
computer while you play. Isn't that a major privacy concern? They assure us
it's for our own good :-(
