Actually what's in between birth and death is the only thing that's relevant. History books are not full of birth dates and death dates, they're full of what people did in between those times.




A podcast I listen to says "make the most of your dash" meaning the dash on your headstone, that is your life. While I try to do that, I accept death is coming and do not expect to get past 70 or so. When it comes it comes. You can fight it or cuddle up to it like a lover, but you cannot avoid it.

What a farce.



While there are surely varying degrees of equality, none of us are more equal to that extent.

Wizard is suspended for violating a privacy agreement.

Administrative suspensions do not always appear in red, but I confirm that the suspension is in effect.



Delayed suspension, might be first ever. Did he self-surrender like you can do for club fed?

Wizard began his suspension yesterday.

I do not gossip about the private details of such matters.

The notice of suspension is provided here, as many people do not notice when the suspension list is updated - the manner it is updated does not generally bring it to the top of the Recent Threads list, where many people look for new happenings.

Appearance is everything.

I highly doubt he cares that he had to take a suspension. Perhaps you guys should have sent him to his room with a calculator and a unicycle, that would have really showed him.

I'm here to discuss the Suspension of Wellbush for a statement made in the above-linked post. I should assume that this Suspension will be added to the list in the near future.

As we can see in that post, a statement was made that violates a couple of rules here and potentially a few more:

Rule 1: No Personal Insult

---In this statement by Wellbush, an anecdote (fictitious or true) was made concerning a well-known stereotype that is made of the Jewish community. It stands to reason that there are more than zero Jewish or part-Jewish people who post here, in fact, I KNOW that there are (but will not identify them individually) and this post rises to the level of Personal Insult against all Members of that community.

Rule 12: No Bullying/Trolling

---See above.

Rule 18: Hate Speech

---Again, this post can be seen as nothing other than HATE SPEECH based on a known stereotype of the Jewish people. It is this sort of speech that fosters violence and hatred towards members of that community whilst perhaps fostering existing biases or perhaps causing people to have new biases.

Rule 19: Controversial Speech

---The speech is about a particular, and specified, religious group and a stereotype related to them---so it's tough to get more controversial than that for the purposes of this rule.

Wellbush is coming off of a 30 day ban as of July 30th. Granted, this site doesn't operate strictly on Martingale policy anymore, but a seven day ban for hate speech seems extremely lenient given the length of the most previous ban.

It would be one thing to give someone a seven-day ban for this if they had no prior infractions, agreed to make an apology upon returning and whose posts were of substantial value to a gambling community. This is not the case with Wellbush. Of Wellbush, the following things are true:

1.) He has been suspended already for Personal Insults and Trolling. There is no reason to think, that when this Suspension ends, this behavior will not continue.

AND:

2.) Wellbush is a betting systems advocate and, if there is a single post that has any FACTUAL value to a gambling forum, I have certainly never read it from him.

Therefore, it is my personal opinion that given his previous ban, seriousness of this offense and overall value of his posts to this Forum that Wellbush should be Nuked.

I'm fairly certain some ugly person made up that saying.

I look forward to being your campaign manager during the next Moderator election.

Vote for Mission, he's on a Mission.
