Ghosts of Online Poker

Ghosting is an issue that once resided in a gray area of rules and ethics for online poker. Since there is not technically a one-player-to-a-hand-rule for online poker, it is nearly impossible to police ghosting in a culture that was built around sharing advice on instant messenger.

Still, ghosting is essentially cheating and the organized practice has been deemed unethical at this point in history.
