What do you mean my stance im taking is not indicative in the body of the thread? Also not one person has been able to refute any of the facts of the OP other than to say 'im wrong'. Just because someone claimd im wrong doesnt make me wrong. Prove me wrong.



The issue was semantic. You putting *OFFICIAL* preceding the title of your thread strongly implied it was forum management generated, when in fact it was your perspective and your stance is actively NOT supported by the Wizard.

So I redacted the word to remove the implication.

You've had plenty of people with more expertise than I refute or support your position. I generally stay out of issues for which I have nothing except uninformed opinion to offer, as I have this one. Expect that to continue.

No personal stance or attack intended. Just administrative management of the forum.

Didn't Mike say he didn't like the title but he was a strong advocate of free speech and would let it stand? If so, why did you take it upon yourself to change it? I assume the owners of the site trust Mikes judgment?

I also believe that he trusts the judgement of this site's mods.
I got a plan, we take all your picks we reverse them like one of those twilight zone episodes where everything is the opposite. You say "black" we go white.

Greetings!

First of all, I would like to thank ZenKing for creating this thread as it inspired an article. Honestly, I thought I wrote an article about getting thrown out of a casino for Defiant Trespass and having to face the Magistrate to address those charges. I must not have, though, or maybe I wrote it for LCB.

Anyway, here it is, it seems a few people have enjoyed it so far:

Thanks again to ZenKing for the inspiration and I hope anyone who reads it enjoys it. If anyone has any questions, that's fine and I'll do my best to answer, but I can only really speak to my own experience.
