Wow! 22 pages in less than 24 hours…


I find it interesting and ironic that in this thread, we’re talking about a new rule stating that topics and posts are to remain on topic, yet there are so many replies that are off topic and even the kind that would get deleted based upon this very rule.

That said, I like the new rule, if it could be adhered to.

Death of WoV? I don’t think so. I think will actually help. After all, if most/all of the info here is the kind that people are looking for, more people will look and more people will post.

DT is dead? Not quite. But if all of the traffic here that should be over there starts going there, DT will be a very active forum.



except it won't because the majority of us who can not stand political threads won't want to wade through them over there. Every once in a while I check that site out and the top threads are nothing that I want to discuss so I move on.

I imagine your life is pretty problematic with that thought process and attitude. Don't worry,,, you're just a victim of your circumstance, you can't help yourself.....lol



It has nothing to do with circumstance. My point is that our minds are inherently limited, which is why we, as a necessary result, cannot be aware of every possible option available to us in all instances. Because we cannot conceive of every possible option, we often miss the best possible option.

It has nothing to do with being a victim of circumstance or not taking responsibility. I'm not a victim of circumstance, I'm a victim of the fact that I'm quite unmotivated and often make bad decisions.

Of course, this is why we don't have politics threads, anymore. You know that I am more to the left than you, so anything I say is going to automatically be, "You're just a victim of your circumstance."

Naturally, I expect you to find no fault with yourself whatsoever. Really, since you're such a free thinker and individualist, and I am admittedly not, you shouldn't be wasting your time talking to peons like me.

But, since you seem incapable of making a meaningful gambling-related post, I guess you have no better way to spend the next couple hours.

You guys have one hour left to express political opinions. Make the most of it.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

These guys are mostly blocked by me anyway, but I noticed that immediately after the New Rule was enacted these complete waste of time types came in desperately posting in the What did you eat today Where do you shop today and other silly threads immediately because their blocked names appeared right away to bump the threads up. Must have no other outlet, poor guys. Either that or are being deliberately obtuse and stubborn to thumb the forum's intent.
I tell you it’s wonderful to be here, man. I don’t give a damn who wins or loses. It’s just wonderful to be here with you people.

I did not have time to alter "tax bill" to "rule."

Too stupid not to read a thread. Should be a banning offense. For any topic.

DON'T READ IT, IF YOU DON'T WANT TO READ IT.

(of course I exclude the mods and admin, as they have a legitimate complaint of reading stuff they don't enjoy and enforcing rules and all. But at least they have a case)

That should tell you something right there. For Better or Worse, People engage in controversial subjects.

If gambling subjects were as polarizing and wanted as some people claim.... Take a look at and compare the flowing 2 threads.

I didnt look to see how many posts were made by the OP but it's probably an overwhelming majority. You actually have to search pretty hard to find a legitimate post that doesn't deal with Nathan and are some other b*******. This thread should be going of the rails with comments, but its pretty much a one man show.

3 months of nothing but gambling subjects and theres only a handful of legit posts VS 24 hours of just one non gambling subject. Is it an unfair comparison, probably, but go compare it to any non-gambling related subject and see the results.

Personally I'm good either way, I can just go with the flow, I just think there's some middle ground that could possibly make most people happy. I still like the locked section idea with a special password to enter is needed were only people who opt-in can view or participate. That will keep everyone currently at the the site, new members wont see it, members who don't want to see it won't. The rules could be relaxed a bit and anyone who gets banned/suspended from that section would just be banned/suspended from that section. Perhaps even a special moderator just for that section would be needed.

Seems 90% of what the Wiz and owners want is achievable by simply filtering what shows up in the "Recent Threads"
As to content restrictions I agree there's a problem but share the concern of many that some of the ancillary threads (e.g., what people are reading, who wants to go to Burning Man) help foster a sense of community. I would miss that.
My goal of being well informed conflicts with my goal of remaining sane.
