Using this site to sell anything, unless with prior permission, is prohibited. Two things that will result in an immediate nuke are system selling under any circumstances and if a member's first post is commercial spam.
Yes, I believe I read that at some point now that you mention it. However, I also believe that asking for investment is not an auto-nuke...and I would classify it as the same thing, a scam.
As 1BB mentions, perhaps changing the Betting System thread to Voodoo and adding a disclaimer (and moving posts) is the solution here, if it is your good name that is the concern. I never read any of gr8's posts, but if he was refusing to acknowledge his system didn't work and led a campaign of deceptive posts, it would have called for a ban in my book.
Adolf Hitler was part Jewish (on his mother's side). Denial is a powerful thing.
The claim is on his father's side, but is unsubstantiated. He may have had Jewish heritage, but he wasn't Jewish. Same way I may have Viking Heritage, but I am not a Viking.
As gr8player, he may or may not have had a 53% strike rate.
However, over the samples he was talking about, it was not proof of anything. I contend he was unable to do basic probability mathematics and failed to understand half of the Maths he quoted and said he used.
I have no idea of his parentage, though.
I wasn't comparing them.
Over the last 18 months, unfortunately, I've had occasion to learn much of what makes you angry. Let me tell you one thing that makes me angry: when someone does something bordering on insensitive, and then denies having done so.
Talking Holocaust denial to Jews is a very hostile act on a level that does not compare to talking about betting systems here, no matter how angry you get when people discuss mathematical nonsense as if it were serious. If you'd said "How about a Ravens fan promoting Baltimore at a Steelers forum?" That woulda have been on the same level of antagonism we're talking about.

I never claimed the level of hostility was the same, and even prefaced my remark with "Maybe this is a bad comparison." However, I think it is possible to have a discussion about the merits of free speech using Holocaust denial as an example, without being accused of being insensitive about it.
I might add that Holocaust denial is illegal in Germany.
Title something like "Winning Casino Play". Yes the title could be confused as to player's winning, but means, Casino winning (in very small print at the bottom).
Someone mentioned Gr8player does not have a large enough sample size. Oh but he does, he lost over 250k from what he has told us. He then revised his system to work better. Revisions are as follows: Bet less per hand and red chip it.
I was actually curious about this -- that's why I asked him for his biggest loss ever. I had heard rumors of this $250k loss, but I don't think I ever heard it directly from him.
FWIW, he replied that the most he ever lost in a night was $12k. And he claimed that he lowered his bets since then, and is black chip now (not sure if that is min or max)
Also, he had claimed to have a negative progression, without explaining exactly what it was.
I hope that no one harbors any ill-will towards me, as I surely hold no grudges towards anyone here. It's all good...
Looking at the poll results, it appears that you won the vote, but lost the election on a technicality. (Al Gore sends his sympathies.)
gr8player, I trust you'll find a more receptive venue for discussion. Silence is not an option :)
