I haven't read all 33 pages of this thread so I don't know if this was already covered -- but are we still allowed to make prop bets regarding politics and elections? I have a few active ones with forum members but I can think of a few more I'd like to make.



Iíll go ahead and actually answer your question. My understanding is that sort of thing is permitted if in the context of betting or gambling without making any politically-charged arguments or talking about political opinions beyond the wager itself.

Yes, you can. As long as you don't make it political.... Just the betting part is allowed.

I think things have shifted more towards procuring day old bagels and donuts. Currently the hippest new trend is soliciting funds from other members without the need for wagering. Every step forward is progress and progress is essential.🤓

I never seen this post until now. There's not much forward progress going on nowadays.

Dumb rule. Say goodbye to most of the traffic this forum gets.


Oh, you probably mean "Say goodbye to the Dumb's traffic!"

I like it, I like it a lot. A comment from EB would be the icing on the cake.
