According to me they must be ☝️we have take care about their psychologic sides
You can often find those people who swear in the chat. They need to be taken calmly, it's probably beginners or people with unstable mentality. The lower the level of play of such people, the more they swear.
Think positively about them, I don't know very well English, but I understand that some players mad, and write nasty things, maybe it's their psychological attack on the opponent, and the way to win the tournament
It is possible that this may be a provocation, to psychologically beat down the opponent. The main thing is not to pay attention to it, but better concentrate on the game. In the extreme case, disable the chat of the player. In the poker room 888 is well thought out the fact, that you can throw into the opponent's eggs and tomatoes .
Not sure I understand the question? If I do and you are just talking about someone using cuss words - well its a public forum and if we are at a table (I assume that is what you mean), various words should be accepted if you do not like it turn off chat or ignore it IMO - (note - I do not believe in censorship). What is offensive to one person is common language to another and if you are on a poker site you have to accept the fact that their will be words used that you may not like -
However, if someone is being racially or simply demeaning and derogatory to a specific person that is wrong and we should be intolerant of that. To me the best course of action is not to speak to the person and hope the entire table with out speaking about it colludes to remove the other persons chipstack (that happened once and it was pretty satisfying)
I have been in games where someone was being racially abusive and the person they were doing it to did such a good job of quelling it, the situation was de-escalated pretty quickly. So was not a big problem. The instigator was clearly a "jerk" but not quite the ingrate you would have expected once the "victim" (though this was no victim given his handling of the situation) artfully put him in his place.
I have a friend does not play poker but in FB will make comments to see if he can get a rise of out people. Whether he believes what he is saying or not. if you are not aware of this ploy in poker you are going to be on the defensive quite a bit so if it bothers you its pretty easy to simply turn off chat.
And what's the big deal? ) Let each one expresses his emotions as he wants
thats not a big deal! but playing poker we all try to control (or hide) what we feel, our emotions. if someone cant, they need to try, if he/she dont want to try that is one of the worst player imao, a sign of poor parenting. emotion control is even more important than BR control
Players have rude behaviors are not normal, except direct to you, it's no harm online.
If you got opportunity knock them out is the best way.
If you do not have opportunity knock them out, watch it as monkey show is the other way.
I think they have control issues. And seriously, if i ever find myself swearing at the table i will quit, i don't get those kind of guys, if poker gets you so frustrated and anger, you are not only losing sense for people but for game as well. Where's the thrill in that...
I don't care about people using bad words , as long as they don't insult others ratialy , sexually , like a crazy Austrian did some weeks ago insulting on my tables some players as Jews d*** for Ausvisch and similar facist craziness . I sent a letter to pokerstares and chat action was taken .
woder where these peoples minds are at, sometimes think they are minors playing under there parents name,,ethier way they are MINORS ,most any adults would not use language to insult another.I reply in chat with-how old are you!, time to grow up

That was me growing up or down as the case may be.
I love satire and off handed remarks like someone gets a boat
and I reply, so so, fair, passable..etc. mostly with a smile of some sort.
Abuse of another player is something I can't stay out of cause I'm good
at quelling the problem because bad behavior is against the whole table
who has to read their rantings and ravings. I'm not one to block out a
rude abnoxious bully. I like the idea for some language if just untorable
and should be reported with the game number and time to the site. Usually
that takes care of them for at least 30 days.
A favorite ranter/bully remark is , Hey ____, you have your whole
life to be a a jerk (whatever), how about taking a day off ;-).
When I get them distracted I will usually have em settled in a few minutes.
When you pay my entry you can tell me how to play.
I look forward to your theory on poker to come out in paperback,
like 1 sheet should do. These usually put the bully off guard and
allows me to mess with em, ain't poker fun...hehe.
