I'm not sure we should feel bad about some people leaving the site.

Those accused of being Kentry, who Mission nuked for being asinine IIRC*, have some things in common. To name a couple, they put out indefensibly inane posts and their gambling interest is almost exclusively slots played in the ploppy manner. Why are they here?

OK, yeah, you can just block them, and I do. But anybody who wants to tease somebody else for posting inane stuff, well, maybe the victim can ask themselves if they are just attention starved 'or what'. Evidence of stalking, though, is another matter, that I think can be justification for suspension.

In the case of Cappo1, I can appreciate wanting to defend him, although I am on the record with my suspicions.

*or was that ever explained?



Odius, I'm with you on the suspicions thing, as I was completely fooled by a Newbie who I stood up for vehemently and adamantly for only for the Admin to out them out as a scammer and permanently ban them. I then turned around and went hard on another Newbie saying something like,"Welcome. I have my guard up against you as another Newbie who started a first time thread like yours completely fooled me and turned out to be a scammer!" The newbie basically replied,"Um, okay, yeah, just because one Newbie turned out to be a scammer who completely fooled you doesn't mean every Newbie is a scammer. You should have more trust." This newbie had a good point and I apologized for jumping down his throat right off the bat. I still feel bad for automatically jumping down his throat.
Guy "won" less than his bet and the slot machine had the audacity to tell him he got a big win! SMH! Also, the Nintendo cartridge is so much more important than the Nintendo console. Without the cartridge, the Nintendo console is just a useless box.

Whoa. When i first joined way back in 09 i was one of those slot ploppies. Even until recently there were those members on here who disparaged certain claims i hav made as ploppist (new term but i like it)

While its great we hav many math and ap specialists on here this is going to be a very lonely place if we run off ploppies. Many i have no problem helping with common sense (which most casinos bank is lacking rightfully so in newbie ploppies)

Although this is a forum inhabited by elitists lets not make it an elitist forum.

As my first grade teacher said. There is no such thing as a stupid question (although maybe she lied)

I feel bad about anyone who wants to legitimately discuss gambling who is not a troll leaving the site. Particularly so if they were bullied out of being interested in it.

In the case of Krava, you have someone who not only posted about slots, but also took an actual picture of one of his machines of choice and a picture of a cashout ticket, which he seems to have since deleted. As far as his subject matter being defined entirely by slots, he listed a ton of his favorites, so people could debate the merits of one machine vs. another and things of that nature.

It's a forum about gambling, and he talked about gambling, that's the only prerequisite is that a new member should be talking about gambling. Gambling knowledge is not a prerequisite, being an AP is not a prerequisite, playing something other than slots is not a prerequisite. Only talking about gambling. If someone starts to create too many new threads asking questions or opening with things that most members seem to consider, "Weak," then I might ask them to keep their new stuff to threads that they have already created for awhile, but there is nothing at all wrong with the mere act of posting about slots.

Nathan,

I doubt you are Kentry. However, this is about the eighth time you have told the above story at length, and you have protested about the Kentry jokes at least 50 times, with 2 dedicated threads and a dozen semi-hijacks. I am tired of your tiredness. Call it flooding, hijacking, whatever you wish, and realizing you feel justified in rebutting EVERY. SINGLE. INSTANCE. of the slightest reference, I am warning you. We get it. You're not Kentry. You were fooled. Asked and answered.

Let the jokes pass and they will go away for the most part. Those baiting you are not without blame. But YOU need to let it go, or I will let you go.

The rest of you phishers,

This stopped being funny a while back. Lay off some.

Peace. Love. Out.

Nathan, I'm not sure if people
actually believe you are
the Kentry or not. Perhaps t-
he members here
are just having some fu-
n at your expense.

In reality, it's not all that bad, just
some honest fun, I reckon.

Kentry got the most heat b-
ecause of his haircut shenanigans.
no one took him seriously
that his mom would get that
riled up over him losing his haircut money.
you don't seem to be one in the same.

You have always been an active poster with good information trying to help others and I
Think this is some solid advice for Nathan. A lot of what you said makes sense and I hope he takes the advice because
You're spot on. I don't know why Nathan doesn't accept WoN offer though, I think it's quite
Clever... and quite the freeroll just for proving two things he's already said! At that point I
Don't see how you wouldn't just show up and take the free money all while
You earn some credibility on the forums by proving two things you've already said are in fact true!
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

Not quite as obvious as the below but pretty good.
btw the below was confirmed as authentic personally by the Wizard, though I can't find the thread

It's a forum about gambling



Is it, really?

I thought it was about Las Vegas, as in "Wizard of Vegas" and not "Wizard of Odds."

It's kind of both, Vegas by name, sure, but it's not like that is the only gambling locale discussed here. There are even specific sub-forums for anyone wanting to discuss different locales. WoO also doesn't have a forum, but does direct people to here, so I think that also lends to my position that it's a forum about gambling.

Back in 09 this forum was on woo. It was moved when wiz created this sister site. So it was always a general gambling site imo

Besides vegas is synonymous with gamblin anywhere. Ex an episode of Breaking Vegas was about the roulette family hitting european casinos with their system
