How much money were you willing to bet? The HB challenge was loved by all..... The other threads heavily blocked tend NOT to be gambling threads (recipe, gun, spanish word, etc...) The HB thread was the purest gambling thread this forum has ever seen.... odds, money, woman, intrigue, what more could you want?

With all due respect to the HBC (which was great--I read every word), the most entertaining thread/flamewar here was the mkl654321/Jerry Logan flamewar. That was such a massively engrossing mutually-assurred destruction.

I thought that was QUITE boring actually. I can summarize it.... I'm mkl. I'm very smart. I understand math and odds. I'm Jerry Logan. I can win playing video poker using 'special plays'. No you can't. Yes I can. No you can't Yes I can. You are an idiot. No, you are an idiot. Etc.... there was little else in there, actually.

Who was Kevin Lewis? MLK654321's real name?

Wow! Are we allowed to post a member's real name?

Are people who have been permanently banned considered to be members? I think it was determined/decreed that for the purposes of name-calling and personal attacks, posts about former members were fair game. Maybe other protections are also not afforded to former members as well?

I don't think mkl654321 was permanently banned. He was given a two-week suspension here and subsequently "permanently resigned" according to this follow-up post. My impression is that, upon request, he could be reinstated.

Fair point. I'll rephrase. Are people who are currently not members protected by the same set of rules that govern the treatment of active forum members?

The Wiz used to say banned members were fair game,
you could say anything you liked about permanently
banned members.
