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.



I think those are Ministry of Propaganda approved threads.

Not closed yet? Didn't even need the thread.
Here's the solution, and I mentioned a derivative of it early on and someone said the final later.
Just set up the landing page to show only gambling related material and active gambling threads. Don't have anything else, well, except for all the ads show up UNTIL one logs on. Then you log on and you have the ability to make whatever thread offends you to go away. Can't ever make everyone happy, but given the choice to hide things is about the only hand holding this or any site needs to do.
Period.
Simple.
Done.
You're doing a goog search for card counting and all that comes back will be Wov and gambling threads.

Would threads about what makes a professional gamble a professional be on topic? That's good for a couple hundred pages.

By the way, just looked again at a wizard post and he stated twenty four hours for 'political' comments. So on topic stuff may still be posted in this thread?

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.

at least there's a good chance their stories about whatever they ate that day are actually real.

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.



Why do you people think you have to wade through anything. Jeez. The site doesn't make you see anything you don't want to see.
Stop whining about shit that doesn't exist as a problem. People just want to censor topics, don't force your closed mind on the majority.
You should be complaining about the excessive ads.

Like I said earlier , go to a politics based message board and start posting threads about Video Poker return tables. See if the mods only remedy is advising everyone to block your threads

Paytables never change. After they are all posted you run out of material. Then it's crickets and tumbleweeds. Looks like What Did You Eat Today will survive though, because that is Ministry approved off topic content. Will probably be less posts in that thread because not as many drivebys will be happening. This forum is like a a town that is being cut off from the interstate. Only its doing it to itself.

Is there a pool on which user makes the last ever WOV political statement before time's up?
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

This thread is still open and it interests me. Don't worry yourself about my activities. Trust me it's not worth it.
