I might have over-reacted with this thread and even if someone did rat me out, I didn't have any actual proof to warrant the shout out, so it was a bit uncalled for. The people that I have met from this forum all seem to be honorable and good people, so yeah it was a bit out of line.

Good cards everyone.



I was just wondering how you were doing, Zenking. :) It's good to have you back! :)

it's not the first time you have pointed at nefarious forces when things don't go well for you

your words here were good but they didn't include the word 𝙖𝙥𝙤𝙡𝙤𝙜𝙞𝙯𝙚

nobody's out to get you. your posts are interesting when you're not ranting

anyway, best wishes and good luck with your blackjack career

from reading your posts I definitely think you can be successful at it

Welcome back ZK.

What and who are you going on about? This seems a bit paranoid, even for you ZK.



I don't think anything is to paranoid for him.

I would like to remind all that bullying is against forum rules.

BeachBumBabs - saying someone sounds like a kid and calling someone a kid are two different things - EvenBob's suspension should be reversed

Long ago, Mission146 stated that analogizing someone's conduct to something was not a personal insult



I have been hard on the mods here so i went back and reread what eb said

I agree saying someone SOUNDS LIKE a kid is analogizing and not a personal insult

However the 2nd part of EBs post "Are YOU even old enough to go into a casino" seems pretty direct and insulting to me



I was waiting to see if anyone but me took exception to this too. EB plays a cagy game of skirting the line. Although the insult is minor, past examples of innuendo have come home to roost. But I enjoy many of EB's posts.



So if one were to say "Bless His/her Heart" to a member would that be seen as insulting? The the south it means you are an idiot but just a nicer way of saying it

Please speak for yourself, but not for everyone in the "south."

True, depending on context, it sometimes can have a negative connotation, but I cannot recall it being said as "insulting" to the intended recipient. When not intended as a compliment, I much more often hear it as a somewhat "neutral" reply, such as:
  • "The durn fool says he intends to drive his ratty old jalopy all the way across the country and back."
  • "Well, bless his heart." [Agrees the guy is a "durn fool" with a "ratty old jalopy," but wishes neither to attack nor condone the comment.]


Sometimes, it is intended as a compliment:
  • "Even though he's almost 2 years younger than the other kids playing baseball, he plays as best he can, and sometimes makes a great play."
  • "Well, bless his heart." [Agrees with the comment and wishes well on the youngster.]


Have you never, ever heard "Bless her heart" or "Bless his soul" as anything other than an insult? I really find that surprising. If the rest of the "south" truly believes as you appear to, then I have a TON of apologizing to do for the many times I've said it, never intending an insult.
