  • railbirds love them or hate them

    ok this is a very important topic that i think we should discuss due to my recent encounter of a railbird, question#1 why do people stalk other people, find where they are located and begin to talk sheet to them and thinks its funny or even acceptable...i like railing when i am watching a good pso player on gaining knoweledge on how they stay consistently in the top 10 but i don't bother them while they are playing so they will never know i am there(darkman, cote..hint) but i don't undertand the stalking mindset from some..i seen a guy came to my table yesterday evening railing on this lady calling her a donk btch and stupid a__ h__, now cmon man is it really that serious but then again i guess 1500 bucks will make some of us do some crazy things, but then again i knew an old college buddy got kill over 5 bucks, so i guess anything possibble..i am going to start a campaign"stop the railing and trash talking" and presbruno you can be my advisor if u like.. but seriously this trash talking is crazy, the sad thing half of the trash talking railbirds would not say these things in a person face at a live table because they are really cowards..

    I call them railtards. They're part and parcel of online poker at whatever level you play. Either laugh at how immature they are, or if the abuse gets really heavy report them.

    Of course another way of dealing with it is to produce an episode of the muppet show

        Perfect example of when to call an admin in and get someone chat banned.

          important yes but we cant do much if anything about it.your ?#1some players talk sheet just to put others on tilt that's part of poker on line and live.its just that on line you can get away with a lot more.i said this before.you can turn chat off. but i never do because i want to see who is tilting who.so i can go after there chips.this can be a good tool to use.FYI i rail players to.to watch or say hi and never start crap.

            Railbirds are fine,IMO. And by Railbirds I mean popping in to say "Hi" to friends,or watching good players,and one of my favorites is when it gets out thru the Grapevine that a fellow PSO'er is doing something good in a cash MTT to go root them on.

            But the other side of the coin,stalking/harassing players?.......That's simply classeless,gutless and beyond the pale. And I have to disagree with you on one point Tariq---in my opinion NONE,not half,but NONE of the dirtbags who do this on-line would have the guts to do it in a live situation.

            Again if there is a sequel to the Muppet show I would like to be one of the old curmudgeons in the balcony. I love those guys.

                without calling names i have a LOT to say about railbirds,,,

                specifically certain PSO players who go to certain other pso players tables and call them names such as pedophile, garbage, and many many other things....

                but i cannot mention any names as this would be inflammatory.

                i think that pso players that do this should have their tickets pulled for a while, just like you get a forum ban.

                and if the behavior continues, pull thier ticket permanently.

                it is unsportsmanlike conduct and should not be tolerated at all during league play by one pso player aganst another.

                i call for a full senate investigation to find out the names of people that called other people pedophile and garbage, at table, and hunted them to do it, from observer chat, among other nasty things.

                nuf sed.

                              Actually I had some dude I did'nt know from Adam hit me up for a dime back in early September so he could go play a .10 360 Turbo. I had just scored big in PSO in August so I shipped him the dime no hesistation. He proceeded to follow me around for like 4-5 days and got belligerent when I cut him off after shipping it 2 or 3 more times. Can't remember his name but thought it all a little sad on his part.
