Yes, since I'm the one arguing with Shane about this on 2+2, let me go ahead and say that the "smaller skin" he was alluding to in that conversation is Intertops
. Which is a complete joke.
Intertops, as a company, is an order of magnitude larger than Lock Poker will ever be.
I'm still not sure if we are allowed to post 2+2 links here, but that same thread you pulled that information from, where Shane is claiming it's due to "smaller skins complaining" I've posted links to the Intertops thread where their reps will be responding to this accusation on Monday.
