The difference between that article and my post was, that article talks about self-proclaimed professionals who berates others plays of how plays should be done such as
"They all spoke very loudly, mostly across each other, and they rarely paused to listen to what the others were saying. They talked about "morons" limping and not three-betting A-J in the cut-off and not knowing to 3/5 with an A-Q on the button. They discussed staking and make-up and games with large buy-ins; they talked about people I know of through poker websites
but have never met; they spoke loudly about ranges and fold equity; and they went on and on about themselves and how ****ing great they were."
I don't berate my opponent. Why would I? In matter of fact, someone berating me in the past about my leak of calling all-ins with low pocket pairs is the reason why I got better because that time, I considered joining cardschat. You don't want fishes to get better. I joke with the results of the hand, as I mentioned where one person has a set and other has flush draw, get their money in, and set hits his full house while flush draw gets his flush, then I say stuff like "well, at least you made your flush. " I don't know how that's offensive or berating or giving tells.
If someone berates my play, I would just respond like a silly person who didn't know what he's doing and who talks like result-oriented donkey. For example, i call someone's all-in with low pocket pair and they roll over AK and I roll over 55 and they are disgusted with my call, I just tell them "well, pair is better than Ace King high. so I called.
