Prejudice Against Poker

I think it is a wonderful game and plan to play at least as long as Doyle to keep my mind sharp and just for enjoyment and hopefully income but anytime someone finds out that I play poker they want to tell me about friends or relatives that lost their houses or got into some big problems with shady people gambling. Of course they don't differentiate between roulette, casino games or sports gambling and just lump everything in together. They don't seem to understand the concept of controlling it through bankroll management and learning about strategy. Everyone seems to know someone who lost a lot of money playing something. Starting to really annoy me. Of course it doesn't help that so much poker news is sad and involves murder and/or thievery. Or that most people that have tried on line poker pump in $400-500 lost it all and quit. Poker needs some good press!
