There is no problem with trash talking as long as you agree to be at the table. I feel it is great entertainment and would like watching the trash table.

i think the replys to the suggestion is very formal and with out individual charactor, personally i dont mind a little trash talk and if it gets to much for me, i simply leave the table, i believe trash talk is part of the nature of the game and a big mental aspect of how you may play. in some of the poker series ive watched on telly, those guys have hundreds of thousands at stake and they goad each other and talk trash to each other, the best trash talkers never use profanity.The response spgdog gave was mostly irrevelant, and basically just a page out the rule book. i would enjoy a trash talk table from time to time. THE BACK ALLEY TABLE. All the best Mr astro
Trash talk on tv or on live tables is very different then trash talk from behind your own computer. Most people has no control about it when they are anonymous behind their own computer, in no time it is harass and insulting each other.
