You never know who you will meet online

So I’m playing poker online tonight and one of the players at my table has the moniker “NolimitFreak.”

On one of the first hands he plays, on the final round of betting I make a big bet, he raises me, I reraise him “all in,” and he folds. He then proceeds to call me a “turd” in the area where players can chat. I have no idea why.

A while later, I ask him a question: “Hey NolimitFreak, have you read the book Freakonomics?”

He responds, “I wrote it.”

I type back, “That’s amazing…I love the book!”

He didn’t reply.

I find it outrageous that the author of Freakonomics would go around calling someone a turd.
