To lock or not to Lock - That is my question to CardsChat
Ok. I'm just going to have to step in it here. I have to ask.
Why are we still advertising Lock poker? What am I missing....
While I am so pleased that CardsChat supports its members and this site has gone out of its way to help people with late payouts, etc; (making me glad I joined this bandwagon) I'm still a little confused. Not helping are the banners above this window as I write this, that do not
have a "Lock" tab, but at the list of topics, there is one there
. As if we ourselves are not sure about this?!?
The site has some horrible issues that just are not going away. They have done things which suggest a less-than-advertised quality of service. While I agree that there could simply be a lot of rumor and speculation going on, unfounded at best, panic driven lies at worse, they just do not seem to be a site I would trust putting my money into. Several things that they have done that are a matter of record make it so. This entire "no longer honoring player-to-player transfers" issue...they hock this feature, then renege on the deal leaving players SOL? Do I have that correct? And what about the security issues I have been hearing about...passwords not being encrypted? WOW. And that is just the tip of the iceberg?!?
Look, I have no horse in this race, so maybe I should not be speaking of it. I am just a new guy. And of course, If I am lucky enough to make the freeroll league, I'm sure that sooner or later I'll be playing there. And I have no idea of what CardsChat is getting in return for this advertising outside of hosting the freerolls
we have there. So, the up-ies could well outweigh the down-ies for us as a community. I mean, come on, if you are not charging me for everything I am getting here, it's got to paid for somehow or someway!
But I'm getting that "Full Tilt" feeling, if you know what I mean? So, just where do we stand?
