The other day I was playing poker. I was obviously lucky... so I brought everyone out. In response to my actions in the chat, one of the players wrote “Idiot” and so on. In short, it really started to bother me and I still replied that “I contact support to block his account due to constant insults.” I do not know what happened, but suddenly this player became SitOut and subsequently did not appear at all... I do not know, maybe he was scared, or maybe the support worked quickly (although I did not contact anyone).

I usually ignore them, and sometimes reply them with lol
Usually when im playing with play money i raise almost everyhand, and some get annoyed and start insulting me, i just respond with lol, and not insult them back. Dont let those guys bother you.

I just usually ignore any bad messages sent my way when playing, You can turn your chat off and not ever have to worry about it.

I like it. I want my opponents to think I am stupid and bad at poker. It is harder if it happens at live poker though. One time I almost cried when I was a new player and somebody was berating me. My coach later told me, "Why do you want a losing player to approve of your strategy?" And it stuck with me.

I turn off the chat. Otherwise, I get distracted and ultimately tilt.

Not a fan of players that throw insults. I have questioned a call or play in chat and afterwards regretted commenting and making wosre of a bad situation. But I never throw insult after insult. I can’t fathom those players and how they can sit there spamming the chat nonstop with garbage insults and other hateful comments. Personally I like that ACR has eliminated the chat box.

Insults in chat are prohibited by the rules; if it really offends you or distracts you from the game, you can complain to support or turn off the chat at any time. Personally, I don't pay attention to this!!!

Completely unnecessary, it will only show weakness and a lack of understanding of the variance that is implicit in the game.

My chat is usually blocked, because I don't think it's worth to spend time with insults in chat. Most of the times, I just don't care and I completely ignore it.

I don't like it at all but I have, figuratively, pretty thick and tough skin. Even the one who called my a "see you next tuesday" after I beat him for a big pot didn't bother me. The only time I've ever reported someone was when a player on ACR told a player from Israel that Hitler had the right idea.

Must be something about the screen name "bowler" because the guy that made the comment to me was probowler, or something like that. :)

In poker, as in life, there are different people, different players. Unfortunately, there are many inadequate ones, even among members of our community. In such cases, take a screenshot of the chat and report the incident to our moderators. Our moderators have effective mechanisms of influence on such players :)

I thinknits part of the game, idiot is okay I think, as long as its not racist, homophobic , prejudice or sexist - if its just in fun or anger cos lost a hand or put out, just laugh and carry on

I think there should be limits but at the same time as a poker player we should expect insults from time to time specially after bad beats or out of frustration but I don't its acceptable in general.

Basically, I always play with the same players and we know each other and even sometimes joke around in the chat, so I don't take insults during the game seriously, I just respond to some insults with a laugh or say that you're a great joke and then all our disputes during the game turn into friendly discussions of some hands

I don't agree with insults, my worst reactions are usually: “explanation?” “poker.” The first alludes to the fact that I don't understand how he paid with those cards, and the second to the thought that no matter how well you play poker, it will often make you lose.

Insults are prohibited and the truth is that violence is not justified either in poker or anywhere else.
you have the possibility to close the chat if they bother you
Personally, I ignore them.
It hurts their game so I don't stop them.

Hey some people just can't handle making bad bets or losing so they try to deflect their own stupid actions by calling others names childish things pay no attention to them play your cards and have fun. Now those are just my thoughts:unsure:.
