re: Poker & what type of punishment should u get for using racial slurs in a online poker room
If I ran a poker site, 1st offense you get a one week ban, 2nd offense 1 month ban, 3rd offense six month ban, 4th offense 1 year ban, 5th offense perma-ban...
Not because of any morality, granted I abhor racism. I would ban any and all racial slur users because a site the promotes racism is just bad for business.
You alienate white customers who don't want to be associated with racists.
You alienate non-white customers who don't want to be associated with racists.
You alienate the targeted racial demographic that is offended by the racial slur.
You end up creating a hostile chat environment and ultimately that is just bad for business. Yes, 16 yr olds find it funny, however, adults still make up the larger % of online players as there are more 25 - 90 yr olds than there are 16 - 24 year olds

This is flat out idiotic. How does a name that identifies your race or background "ask" for slurs. blkmoney is NOT the same as whiteywhiteycrackerboy... How does that equate in your tiny mind.
blkmoney would be the same as whitemoney or k-money if korean... Its just a name. Nothing more, nothing less. I see plenty of names like whitetiger or whiteshark and I don't think to myself, "Gee this guy is just asking for racism..." Hell Phil Helmuth runs around saying "White Magic" does that mean he is asking for racial slurs???
Always amazed at how easily racists can justify racism... yeah, your name has "blk" in it therefore you are just asking for racist slurs... Your mind must be a scary place if that seems reasonable to you...
