Also reporting them even when you know they did something wrong is sometimes hard to do, cause in an experience I had I tought I "knew'' someone well and when I tought we still were "buddies'' he even told me what he was doing and how he was doing it. We basically did get less close with eachother the period after to basically not like eachother anymore right now, but still it would have feeled like me ratting him out, altough it would have been the honest thing to do. The player in question got his accounts locked eventually , I even saw him multiaccounting a 15 player league (with $500 and 1k tickets on top for playing 4 games with points on both PS and FT) which was basically one of last signs on Rational Group pokersites, guess their security finally found out.
(feels good to get this of my chest tbh)
This sort of thing is one of a multitude of reasons that I've been very discerning about who I consider to be a friend throughout my life. If you're going to make trouble like that or otherwise break a law without a VERY good reason (possible good enough reasons include "no one's getting hurt and nobody cares", there is somehow no alternative to it, or there IS an alternative but it's somehow worse) then I have no business associating with you on that level in the first place. And if you do **** up and do something outside these reasons and I call you out of it, I will not put up with ANY accusations of "ratting you out" because it's not THAT HARD to not do something that's illegal and harmful. If it is that hard, then you must have a reason I'd consider good enough, like someone who steals food because they're literally starving.
Cheating is cheating is cheating. Both Darren Woods and your "buddy" crossed the asshole line when they tampered with the integrity of the game, full stop.
Seriously, I can't even stand it when people TALK about stuff that would compromise the integrity of a game, even if they're blatantly kidding. Cheating is NOT A DAMN JOKE, it is not something to joke about. I'm GLAD Woods basically won't be able to play poker ever again.
