the debate whether huds are fair or not is moot. you cant prohibit it, so you have to allow it.

poker is an information war.

It seems like restricting HUD's on computer systems would be simple for any competent programmer. Let's try some others...

The debate over whether steroids in baseball is fair or not is moot. You can't prohibit it, so you have to allow it.

Baseball is a physical war.

The debate over whether fuel additives and unapproved parts in racing is fair or not is moot. You can't prohibit it, so you have to allow it.

Racing is a speed war.

The debate over whether unlimited campaign contributions in politics is fair or not is moot. You can't prohibit it, so you have to allow it.

Politics is a spending war.

The debate over whether speed suits in competitive swimming are fair or not is moot. You can't prohibit them, so you have to allow them.

Swimming is a drag war.

The debate over whether unapproved balls and clubs in golf are fair or not is moot. You can't prohibit them, so you have to allow them.

Golf is an equipment war.

I can do these all day....

What about odds calculators? Is it fair that the player who has studied and mastered quickly claculating odds and percentages in order to act before timing out should have that advantage nullified by weaker players having the odds auto-calculated?

I guess if you are a weaker hitter in baseball and cannot calculate what pitch might be thrown next in any given situation you just steal the signs?

irrelevant if it is fair or not, these are people with programs looking for any advantage they can to win more money. It only matters if they are taking steroids - gah i mean if they have inside information on other players cards or if they are colluding. Everything else is up to the poker sites terms of use.

Having a hypothetical discussion on fairness makes irrelevence irrelevent, as well as any given site's terms of use. It is a discussion on what those terms of use should contain.
