Very often these are identical suits too.
e.g. table 1 - AJspades, table 2 - AJspades
I'm not wishing to buy into the 'online is fixed' camp, but want to chat with anyone with a skeptical opinion on this. But as a n00b, I'm wary of such a lack of variance in what ought to be wildly infrequent patterns.

Forget about it. Play poker.
I would go with this advice
This, I see this, I see that does not mean anything...zippo. Millions of people say the same things. All the discussing about IT in the world will do no good without the proven math.
NOW, if you feel there is a true abnormality in the program, collect 1 million of your own hands--or datamine millions of hands of others and mathematically study the subject. When you can confirm these sightings by using true math you can get some to agree with your suspicions.
Or get someone to run a study for you.
Otherwise, anyone can say, Yeah I see that also, and it will mean nothing as well
Good Thing about Online Poker....over millions and millions of random hands, the odds of running into certain situations will run within certain mathematical parameters. So if the sites are running unfairly, it is fairly easy to determine if the Random Number Generator is off somehow to allow starnge results.
