The rules are getting long enough, we may need a preamble and signatories to it.

If I had to do this over again, I think I would have two rules only:

1. Behave yourselves.
2. This is a dictatorship and moderators can do whatever they please.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

It's not like you don't have a second chance. What's stopping you from something like that? Makes a whole lot more sense than the mass of confusion that currently exists. As long as the appointed moderators are capable of being with limited bias that sounds like a formula for success.

Who is confused ?

I log in now and see the Recent Threads list is 8 gambling related discussions , 1 bread thread, 1 coffee thread, and 1 thread asking what I ate today.

Exactly the way I hoped the new rules forum would be

I was under the impression that some wise guy joined the Forum today and posted those bread and coffee posts as a joke/prank.

Yeah, except bread and coffee could have been wrapped up in the way did you eat thread and that would have been better.

People who don't gamble or have nothing to say on the subject since they know little about it are still going to gravitate like flies to the threads like What did I eat today or Where to shop How to lose weight and Miscellaneous thoughts.

You can't teach a rhinoceros tricks. No they can't behave themselves, it is not in their nature, they need strict rules such as you enacted. I haven't been able to read any of what they post for a while all individually blocked but still their threads kept coming to the top of the list, which made me not even want to participate in the forum.

At least now these Know Nothings are prohibited from the political and other trolling threads that were giving completely the wrong impression for a gambling forum. Wiz, I believe you made the right decision, for this situation, given the players involved.
I tell you itís wonderful to be here, man. I donít give a damn who wins or loses. Itís just wonderful to be here with you people.

They should just take it to DT.

The best place for a discussion no one wants to read, is a forum that nobody else views.

Look back at the coffee and the bread thread. It was a "new" member, just happened to join yesterday, apparently so he could comment about coffee and bread, and that's all he posted. Don't you smell a rat? lol

Yes that was obviously one of them. lol Unclear whether it was someone recently banned, or a current one trying to troll with an expendable new identity.
