Do you go to the bus forum to discuss riding the bus. No, you discuss it here. Why? I don't care what you discuss by the way. I enjoy most of your contributions and opinions. Why do you care about what I post on? You're posts are all over the political threads. Why didn't you post on some politic forum? I don't even know any political forums. The only forums I frequent are all gambling and market related.



Please point to some bus forums, lol.

The new rule is no political discussion so based on the new rules why are you here if not for gambling.

I am first to admit I contributed to the political threads. But now I am ready for the gambling discussions on this gambling forum

My guess is you just enjoyed baiting people and you cant really do that in most gambling discussions.

Your only real target now are ploppies with negative expectations systems

And we have our first ban under the new rule. Three days.

p.s. I had to look up who he is.

Waiting for that new rule to be posted...

(And an update to #14)



I may modify the wording, but here is how I have it now:

Quote: Rule 19

Controversial Speech: In an effort to keep the focus of the forum on gambling, Vegas, and math, comments of a political, racial, religious, sexual, or otherwise controversial nature are not allowed. We recommend taking such discussion elsewhere (Added 8/13/19).



In case anyone thought we had 19 rules before, I like to make the Nuclear Option the last rule, so that got pushed down to 20.

I don't plan to close this thread, but controversial speech will no longer be allowed anywhere on the forum, including here. I think I've seen the same suggestions several times over, so I don't see any reason to keep posting here.

Just about everyone on here came for the gambling discussions. There's only so much about gambling that you can talk about. The only one who's really putting out new content frequently, AFAICT, is Wizard. Those don't really interest me much and I suspect many others aren't super interested in them, either (no offence!). Also, there isn't really too much to discuss on those types of threads.

My favorite type of discussions are ones that deal with the math behind gambling, whether it's how a strategy is generated, bet sizing / kelly / risk, or something counter-intuitive (like Joker strategy or how to maximize value on a progressive). Unfortunately, not many people seem to be interested in those types of discussions. :(

People stay here because of other non-gambling discussions like politics, what you ate today, bus riding habits in the North East, or what's the latest on Nathan's lottery picks. The forum is a pretty close community. I think I've met a majority of the active posters here, as many of them have met each other as well. There's also a lot of crossover between different gambling forums where this is also true, like VCT and BJTF, or BJinfo, BJ21, GreenChip, 2+2, PFA, and I'm sure others I can't think of right now.

So this thread is sorta like a hedge against the new rules not working out.

Just rename it EvenBobs Corner and we can move on.

In an attempt to post something new, I never did see the need to split off so many topics. Politics threads should have always been encouraged to stay in a couple threads even when they wandered.

Wasn’t the gambling news thread complained about for wanting to make a new thread every day? So, he got one to work in. Same with Nathan. Not sure what happened there, but not sure why that shouldn’t be good enough. Block the thread, never see it again.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?
