I don't disagree with what you're saying, the recent surge in poker -- specifically Texas
Hold 'Em -- has swelled the online sites, and especially freeroll and low-buyin tournaments, with tons and tons of hyper-aggressive players. Skill is supposed to win out over luck in the end, but put enough of these guys on a table and it's tough to win without a heavy dose of luck.
HOWEVER, that said, I will say this:
New players are healthy for any activity. Sure, in the short run there things are chaotic and it's hard to find a "good" game, and it's tough to improve one's game playing against such people. But, give things time to shake out, for people to bore of the endless freerolls, and for the small bankrolls of the semi-interested players to run out, and I think you'll find not only are we back to business as usual, but the good
players who picked up the game during this bull run and stick around will bolster our numbers for years to come.
Maybe that's me trying to have a positive attitude, but that's how I see it.
