Why Bob Ciaffone Is Better than Russian Girls

Sometimes the ease of internet content transfer is used for good. Take, for example, Bob Ciaffone, who has worked with PokerProf to create a semi-freely distributable electronic copy of Robert’s Rules of Poker. This, of course, makes the world a better place.

But then there are those who want to cut-and-paste the internet for bad porn. Don’t ask me why, but I was doing a search earlier today for “derek boswell +poker”. And in doing so, I came across this site. Scroll about a third of the way down, and you’ll see they have pilfered a bunch of Pokerati content and swapped out certain phrases with their own gambling-related links that really are connected to porn.

I guess I should be tickled, or at least not surprised, to know that Pokerati-lit and porno go hand in hand. (Apparently you people like Russian girls.) But what doesn’t seem right is that I’m not getting a cut someone is using Pokerati without permission to fool Google and profit off the exploitation of women.

The best I can tell via a whois search is that this is the work of one Andrew Gurin, a California pornographer who for whatever reason now makes his home in Ecuador and/or the Ukraine.

Considering that enforcing a cease-and-decist might require negotiations by the UN, all I can say, really, is … bad poker karma, dude.

Seriously, may the river be very bad to you.

    Dan wrote this article including his disdain for the “exploitation of women” while between lap dances at the lodge.
