I will take the refund if it comes back, but I will not follow-up if it is past the return date.

Well DJ, we just disagree and I stated my point clearly, so I'm not going to just say the same thing again.

Happy new year my friend.

Asking for them back in the first place was probably not something cool . However now that he is going to either give them back or re donate them. Asking to receive ir back over letting it go to something else is a fair request.

Let me also say that I'll accept as an option that anybody may insist that I keep the money. For example, sometimes fans will buy me dinner or drinks as a show of thanks for my sites. Such offers I have happily accepted in the past. Neither will I insist that a donation be forwarded to charity if somebody wishes to consider their donation as a pure gift for the value received from my sites, regardless of my net worth.

Still, any donations where I don't get any direction what to do will be donated to charity.

Nevertheless, I have decided to either return or give away to charity ALL donations made at any point.

I have just returned 14 donations totaling $650 made via Paypal in the last 60 days, the period for which Paypal allows this option. However, there are still $3,700 in donations made to that Paypal account before that date.



I'll allow another week for that and then I will be donating all unclaimed donations to Three Square, which is a Las Vegas food bank.

I'd like to request that this thread stay on the topic of just donations. General Wizard bashing posts should be put in the Sale of wizard of odds/vegas websites thread.



Please foward my donation to THREESQUARE.org id=5N395599W9401772E ----June 6th

If enough ends up going to them ( maybe with a matching donation from the new owners ) maybe WOO could sponsor a day as volunteers working for them..... earn a little PR for the site.... I see the site says they provide 1500 meals for with a $500 donation

$5000 = 15,000 meals

that would be something to be very thankful for around Thanksgiving

Because they were donations. They were never intended to be retuned.

It wasn't like "lending" money to your broke brother, where you really don't expect to get it back. These "donations" were payment for the better gambling experience we had as a result of reading WoO and being a member here.

We paid what amount we thought was right for a product that we continue to use. Why ask for refunds?

Now Mike fell into a boatload of cash, and suddenly, everyone is counting his money, and sticking thier hands in his wallet. It's just wrong.

It's unfortunate that it was so recently that the tin cup was out, enabling people to connect the two events. I wonder if many people would have made the same connection if the sale took place many months or years later...


It makes me wonder. If Mike had won the Lion's Share instead of selling the sites, would people still ask for refunds?

+1. As to your last question, absolutely, and even more voraciously.





I didn't ask for it, Mike offered it. I never, ever gave a thought to the donation until then. in fact, I had forgotten about it.

To avoid any appearance of being ungrateful, I now insist Mike keep it. Do whatever the fuck you want with it, I don't give a fuck.

Jesus fucking christ.

You can put any I made donation wherever you want. It's your cash now, given in return for information and resources provided these past ten years.

Cos, no-one is getting rich of my BoDog sports bets.

Nah, I've broken even over the last two years. As I say, no-one is getting rich of my sports bets.
