I sent it to Lem66 and told him you slept with his Boyfriend.Quote: rainman
Dear Axel, We had a bet/wager that I believe I won, it's been 2 months and I haven't received anything yet. Did you receive my last PM?
Either way I would think a bet can be mentioned since it could be a public post in theory but since edited. Leave it to the welsher to admit it was a private message. Honestly did anyone ever think messages were to be private when wagers were concerned and not think them to be used to be used as documentation protecting nonpayment with shame as a last resort. I always expected if I made a bet, I could be able to discuss it and would.
A bet doesn't include a reasonable expectation of privacy to hide nonpayment.
Of course it does.
A bet made privately via email is most assuredly NOT in the public domain.
I don't care if they're both card-carrying members of WOV: it's private, so mentioning the details / identity of the alleged welsher on this board is, per rule four, grounds for suspension.

I'm wondering if the OP made a larger bet than normal with someone who normally pays, however this bet was more than they could handle.
Perhaps, however for the most part it's been safe betting on here. It's also fun. They might have had a good history with the person.Quote: Gandler
Perhaps the wise thing to do is not to make bets with strangers on the internet who you have no way to track down, and there is no way to enforce the agreement.
I wouldn't make a large bet without assurance id get paid. If its small enough then both parties shouldn't have a problem posting about it.
OP should post it up and take his chances on a suspension. Ask what the punishment is
