The Fairness Debate (Parody)
Player 1: This site is rigged.
Player 2: No it’s not!
Player 1: Yes it is. I lost 3 hands in a row so it must be rigged.
Player 2: That’s not enough data. You need at least 5 billion hands to come up with such conclusions.
Player 1: But I’ve seen it enough times to know and I’ve been playing many years, and that’s all the proof I need.
Player 2: It’s all in your head, because it’s human nature. I read it somewhere that people imagine stuff so that’s definitely what’s happening here and that’s all the proof I need.
Player 1: No way. Other players have noticed it too, and that’s all the proof I need.
Player 2: Absolutely not! A staff member assured everyone that the site is not rigged and that’s all the proof I need.
Player 1: I’m telling you there’s something wrong with the algorithm. It’s fixed. The hands are surreal.
Player 2: No way, it’s much easier for them not to manipulate it, therefore they absolutely didn’t.
Player 3: Why are you two arguing? Even if it’s manipulated, it’s the same for everyone, so it’s still fair.
Player 1: No it’s not. If it’s manipulated, it’s not fair.
Player 2: But it’s definitely not manipulated. I have all the proof and evidence needed. A staff member told me, and people imagine stuff, and random programming is easier. What more do you need?
Player 4: We need to see the algorithm. And have copies of the web design, the game design, and all programming. I don’t want to start my own site I swear. I just want evidence that this site is fair.
Player 3: But it is fair. If it’s random, it’s fair. If it’s not random, it’s still fair because it doesn’t target anyone specific. Everything is fair.
Player 1: Nothing is fair. I’m quitting this site. Or I’ll just threaten to quit and I’ll keep coming back and complaining.
Player 2: Stop imagining things! It’s your imagination! There’s an article about it.
Players 5 to 100: AAAAAAAAAAAA PLEASE STOP!
