Just to let you know, it's not PokerStar that sucks
If you got a week banned, it wasn't your first offense
So next time watch what you say when you defend yourself

As you can see, most don't think much of your problem. However, I do. It is hard to ignore the comments that flash across the screen. Best thing to do when you are sending, never get too personal. Keep your comments directed at the cards and the play, never the player. There is a difference.

When such comments come your way, prove yourself the better person. Do not escallate the tension by trying to top their comments with some witty comeback, it will not work. Your best reply is none. If they continue, use the hand history to record their remarks and send it off to the appropriate authorities.

Finally, a lesson to remember from my sports officiating days. An official can miss a call, but they never miss a retaliation.

Nice words of wisdom. If you are being banned from retaliation of what is being said to you then the person initiating it is achieving their goal by making you become emotional about the issue/topic. You don't want to mix your emotions while playing the game as it can affect the rest of your play.

Going back to sports like Cairn did, in Basketball if you let some other player get into your head your going to play like crap opposed to if you didn't let them get to you. You just need to try and ignore it. Like the saying goes, mind over matter.
