Forum administrators may hide threads that don't convey our goal to improve the player's odds in the casino. At conflict with that is our respect of free speech. As a happy medium, we hide threads we wish did not exist, but don't break any specific forum rules. Following is a list of them, with the most recent additions at the top.

The Adventures of MDawg is a thread you wished didn't exist? Priceless..

Great Idea!

No reason every thread deserves equal prominence. But still makes them available.

While this seemed like a reasonable response initially, with the offending party/parties free to start new threads with the same topic in which they are free to pursue their agenda of spreading the same "crap", it no longer solves the problem. It is like putting a band-aid on a bullet wound.

On a related note, if the parties involved are free to start new threads on the same topic, what about me? Exactly how many threads am I now restricted from? Half the board? A pentalty that has never been imposed on anyone else by the way. :/

Even without reposting hidden threads, there are forum rules against creating multiple threads

You finally have achieved your original goal of having the MDawg adventures thread hidden. You should be saying thank you.

As other issues arise, the mods will take care of it.

You won, KewlJ on this issue. I didn't even know MDawg adventures was hidden until Wizard made a thread saying the thread was hidden.

Just my opinion.

We didn't have the ability to hide a thread at that time. Even if we did, Nathan never claimed to have an edge at any casino game. I always viewed that thread as the funny page of the forum.

May we request threads to be hidden?

I just tested it. You can block threads. Then they didn't show up for you. The blocked threads list doesn't appear to list the threads you've blocked.

I think it's great. If you had a forum about topography, it's fine to have a flat-Earth theory thread. But it's silly to keep letting it exist endlessly taking up any significant part of a discussion, unless you really want to promote it. If you want to promote it, then by all means do so. But otherwise, regulate it to the dungeon..
