My "Learning to Win at Poker -- Chip by Chip" Diary

I just started playing in this league 2 days ago and am still learning my way around the features, games, etc.  But I've already played in a bunch of PSO games and noticed an annoying trend -- people insulting their fellow players over their rankings.

You know -- "Nice ranking, Playerxxx..."    So on top of the usual insults -- donk, fish, etc.,  -- we can take out our sore loser anger, try to psych out others, and generally add to the misery index using PSO rank.  It seems particularly bad sportsmanship when we're supposed to be in this league to improve our skills, take risks, learn from our mistakes.  Let's face it, our rankings are bound to bounce around a lot, even if we play really well, no less if we're making "newbie" errors.

I know there will always be Insult Morons to contend with, and that  there's always the Chat Block button, but sometimes I get sick of having to use -- how about you?
