First off, this isn't anything new, Black Friday was 5 months ago, so the majority of the changes live would have been before now for the people who needed their poker fix.
Also, I have played live for much longer than online, and players live are 10x more loose and passive than the vast majority of online players. Actually, I'd guess that any of the players that are extremely loose online are either:
a. players who would never play in a live setting because they really don't know how to play poker,
or b. live players trying out online poker and keeping up with their terribly loose, call anything to see a flop strategy.
