    Poker snobs

    I am so glad 2 be a member of this forum, cuz everybody is pretty cool. u can ask a question w/o having 2 worry about ppl talkin down 2 u. i'm a member of a couple other forums where u would think everybody was a professional player or sumthing, cuz of the way they act like u are a moron if u ask an honest poker question. i'm no idiot. i've been playing poker for 10 years, online poker for 5 or 6. i can dish it as well as anybody, but i just don't see the need 4 it. i've had 2 bite back a few times in those other forums, but i really don't like doing it. has anybody else noticed that at other forums?

    Yeah I've seen it GT. I'm not a big talker about strategies or plans for poker, believing that any individual has to tailor their own game to match their personality, but I always wonder about the poker snobs. If these players are as good as they believe they are, and as concerned with the improvement of the game as most forums claim, why do they not view an intelligent question as a compliment to their perceived ability.?
    Instead as Sam says, you usually get told you must be a fish to not know. The best part is, after insulting you they rarely,if ever, actually answer the question. Maybe they have to run off to a library and consult the books to give you "their" opinion!!!
    Most people here play a lot of low stakes online games, some I'm sure do well. I'm not sure if we have any real Players, meaning regularly rolling a thousand a week(still on the low end), but people will treat you decently and try to help, You do have to be able, as you said, to give and take a little crap talking as most of us have a streak of arrogance and sarcasm....both good poker mentalities to help deal with donks like me talking for ever. Good luck with tings and happy to try and help any time!

    Don't listen to Mr. Dignified .. he is a fish .. LOL .. Morning' Hon .. thanks for fixing the coffee this morning. Actually, I agree. I think it shows ignorance to insult those who wish to learn and muster up the courage to ask questions on an open forum. It's not just poker, though. Seems any forum I see nowadays there are groups of bullies that gang up on folks who post any kind of question or even opinion. Major sadness. Whatever happened to saying something nice or not saying anything at all?

    i enoy the forums on here as well, its a good mutual respect for those who wish to learn, and for those who "know everything that there is to know about the game" arnt good players, the games changes I'm still learning (still trying not to get busted on one pair.... as i did today... a mstake i must try to remove from my game lol) learn not to talk to much as i'm sure many have noticed lol. All the pro's say their still learning so why do these snobs have to be an exception? i just ignore them as you will indeed learn little if anything at all from them.
