Forgot to mention this, but a few months ago, the dealer initially set her hand as A,2,3,4,5 (second-highest straight) with no top when the correct way was 2,3,4,5,6 with an Ace on top. One guy sitting at the table pointed out the error, so one of the pit bosses was called over. Even though the dealer knew she had made a mistake, her boss still insisted that the Ace on the bottom was the correct play. Another pit boss was called over and he instructed her to do it the other way, with the Ace on top.

As it turned out, the squealer would've won either way! Instead, the rest of us at the table lost instead of pushing. Now, I know deciding whether to correct dealers is a hot-button topic. But wouldn't you consider it to be out-of-bounds to comment on others' payouts? Personally if I were alone, I would've pointed out the error. But with other people involved in the hand, I chose to let it go.

Personally if it's me and it doesn't affect my money, it's not my business. That being said, ethics are a personal issue and I don't think you should push your ethics on others, everyone should just do as they personally feel is right in that situation.

Typical Asian gambler who felt the need to boast. "Hey, guys guys... Lookie here! AI YAH! LOOK! Watch this, when MY hand get turned over... It can beat whatever the dealer has, either way! I am the God of Gamblers!"

When I was a dealer I was told that if a floor catches a mistake its ok because it can be fixed there. If surveillance catches a mistake it causes issues involving reports etc... If you are honest and only want to take money or want to be in good faith and advise the dealer of their mistake because you care and are a decent human then good for you. If you want to take money that you do not earn or want to knowingly allow the dealer to risk getting in trouble then that may speak to the ethics and morals that you posses.

when it affects the other players, gotta keep my mouth shut

Back when I was dealing in Iowa, we were told that gaming required us to speak up if we noticed an error like this or were overpaid on a hand. Not doing so put your license at risk.

I have no problems winning a bet where the house messed up. Many a time I've seen dealers pay on losing hands for someone else, and it's not my fight.

I can see this if you possess a gaming badge, but for your average patron, that's up to their sense of wrong and right. Personally, I don't speak up on anything that might take money out of another player's hand (be it legit or not), as long as it doesn't impact my payout, and cheating isn't involved.

Generally, I may speak up and mention that the correct thing to happen is based on the correct play of the cards.

I will only speak up if it is in my personal favor, if someone else gets burned by it then that sucks. If someone did what that person did, I would probably leave.
