Why r there so many who limp? All I hear is Bet, Raise or Fold.

I did not play any Open League Tournaments as I was caught up in other things, then as I began playing at tables I did very well and it was too late by the time I moved on from them. I did have an issue with another player and I did something I had figured I would never do, I responed in a way that basically left him no choice but to say something back. I thought about it later and there is a very good chance that I was in the wrong all the way. First off it was at the zoom tables and even though I was not timing out I was moving slower than I usually do when playing them so this player probably wanted me to pick up the pace which makes sense as it is Zoom and speed is what that is all about. I guess I got a bit angry as he did not ask me  to speed up, he told me to leave, as I said I was not timing out but I was not moving too fast either. I asked him if he was having a bad day and that sort of set it off and the insults started to fly. I should not have said what I did because there is a small possibility that was exactaly what was happening and my slow playing was just adding more grief to a day that may have been screwed up already. I wish I had not said anything, as that is how one should act, instead of responding in hopes of starting something better not said at all. Oh well, I was wrong and if the chance comes I will apologize to him if we happen to meet again at a table. I was looking at my score in the Open League, where u click on your score and it shows all your past tournaments, on the stats and in the lists it has me with a score of 1701 but when I click it my score is 1799.06 so that would move me up the ranks by a few hundred, if not thousand spots. On the part we can all read it has the # of tourneys played at the proper # so I may wait until it is corrected. I did play a tourney that came from a ticket I won on the Scatch&Match jackpot and placed well enough to get paid a few cents, $0.45 or close to that I think. Also went to 888 poker again. I was trying to think of a way to compare their site to PokerStars and what kept popping into my mind was the difference between seeing an artists painting and a childs colouring book where they have not been able to stay inside the lines. A bit of a cruel thought especially when the sirte was good enough that I was able to make over $300 in the 2 hours I was there. Not sure if it is the players who r not as good as here or if I was lucky and just happened to catch a lot of good hands, as that carried over to here. I took 1 bad hit and a few minor ones but I managed to add over a half dozen stacks to mine. Best hand was not shown, I caught a Straight Flush, King high in clubs, just about a Royal which would have been sweet to see. I did put it on Boom. Thats about it, hope you r all having the weekend you hoped for, later, Len.
