I know you started this because you got a few complaints, but I'm not a fan of this format.

Hi billryan,
Thanks for your comment.

There is just no good solution for this.
Maybe Members can pick a News or two that they like from here, and Start a Post/Thread out of it.
or Discuss it Here (Just Put-down the News-Number and/or the News-Title).

P.S. I am Open to Ideas.

How about a "Gambling News of the Day" thread where you pick the top story, post it, and see if it starts much additional discussion. People can post on that issue or previous ones, just like in the "Misc" thread without a daily thread that gets little traction. Some days there may be two items...but pick ones you think are worth some discussion.

This will limit the number of new threads and also give a way to discuss the top news of the day in the gaming business,

Hi AxelWolf,

I does not mean it that way.

I does not want to be a d*ck.

So then whats up with all this then, please explain? I don't have anyone blocked and I don't want to start with you, I might miss something I'm actually interested in. But, it's annoying to see the recent threads section all junked up with with all this BS. You do realize some people navigate the forum based on recent threads(at least I do)? Especially, when there are threads already stated with some of this stuff and most of it isn't worthy of its own thread. Example, there is already a thread JAMES HOLZHAUER ON JEOPARDY yet you felt the need to start a new thread called JEOPARDY!” CHAMP JAMES HOLZHAUER and post a link.

It's as if you are on autopilot and don't care just as long as you get multiple posts up. Do you have some kinda side bet to see how many new threads you can start? Can you explain what the deal is with all this?
