This is a discussion on Bad Beat Threads within the online poker forums, in the General Poker section; Can we make a forum rule that bans posts about bad beats???
We all take them, and most of us really don't want to hear

We all take them, and most of us really don't want to hear your sob stories, as we have our own.
If this site wants to gain some credibility and some more respect, I suggest we stop posting about bad beats. Not many people like to read posts typed by whiners.

I would have to agree with you chicubs1616. I don't come here to here other peoples sob stories. Hey Nick, I know it would be hard to ban all the bad beat threads. Maybe you could make a seperate category under poker that is titled Bad Beats. Then they could leave their bad beat threads there and Chicubs and I. And many others, I'm sure, can just chose not to go in there.

maybe everyone who wants to talk about bad beats could try to keep it in one designated thread instead of making new ones. but if they do make new threads, who really cares? just don't read them if you aren't interested.

re: Poker & Bad Beat Threads
Bad beats belong in the Hand Analysis section really. At the end of the day, if it's part of poker it should be discussed here. I just advise you not to read them, or maybe we can create a bad beats section, but that's in the future.

I like the idea of adding a "Steam Room" topic to the forums. Let the badly beaten and generally malcontent go in there to vent, put on the gloves, whatever. If the rest of us don't care for that sort of thing, we can stay out.
