Coming onto a forum being a ***** to others with one post is what a stupid person does.
if i click "fold" i should expect it to fold me. if i click the check mark next to "fold" i should expect it to fold me... right?
so if i have 7,2 off suit in middle position, and i click the check mark next to "fold" and go and check my email, why in the world should everyone at the table wait for me? why in the world should my table image be ruined by my apparent lack of activity. if i cared about the hand, if i thought there was someone i could get something from, i would've played the hand like a normal poker player, and not planned on folding....... but i wanted to not play the hand, like the check mark next to "fold" means... right? but no.
you're right about the coming onto a forum and acting like a ***** thing though. i'm sorry about that fellas. it's none of ya'lls faults... but i think it's stupid to justify it. it's a bad poker mechanic in general, and i feel like the "support" for it, promotes bad poker.
