i think seven days is a fair suspension,
as i do not think there is much animosity in Bob's posts.
he is more of a curmudgeon than a bitter, hateful person.
anyone who doesn't enjoy his posts can block him.
as far as the formatting of his posts,
he simply hits the return key after every eight words or so.
are you guys really so baffled by that?

Actually, when you look in to this site on a split-screen, EB's format is the most readable. Not that I do that often, but when I do it is weird, he is the only poster that you can see without scrolling.

On his comment on casinos, that casinos suck the house edge out of every dollar dropped in the slots or laid on the felt is not disputable. If you do not like that fact, hanging on this forum is a bit like the atheist demanding the Christian Club on a college campus admit non-believers. What is the point? Though you can say this board has evolved from gaming-based to gaming-and-logical-thinkers-based over the time it has been up. A good thing as after dice-control gets discussed for the 38th time you need to talk about something else.

I agree with this a little, that Bob is not a totally hateful person, but purely trying to goad me (- or anyone) via personal attacks on me or my career's industry, and it is certainly somewhat unbalanced and hateful. I am not a saint, and don't pretend to be, but I don't commit ad hoc flaming or out-of-the-blue ad hominen attacks the style he is known for. It is certainly inappropriate and unprofessional, and reflects badly on us all. Not that I was upset (I wasn't, believe me, the opinions of others on an Internet board mean little if not having previously earned my respect), but What was his point of doing this? Just nasty and pointless.

I appreciate a good debate that may include some solid blows and good jabs, but Bob's THREAD (not just a post) was just pure shot-taking for the sake of flaming, without any basis or as a part of any debate, - just a pure and utterly useless sniper shot, a waste of everyone's time.

It was just so sophomoric and useless that its only purpose was to say: "Look at me! I am flaming and dragging down a gaming industry forum! Weee!" - kind of like a child who says, "Look Mom! I am riding my bike a 40 mph without my hands!!!" - and then crashes and gashes his arm, costing the family $2,000 in medical bills, and so gets grounded for two weeks for being a reckless clown with no maturity, decorum or protocol.

I *believe* that you can send the PM, and the person on suspension will get the email that they have a PM waiting. But they won't be able to log in to read it or reply.

That's the second time Keyser has said something to this effect. If you peruse the suspension list, then you will see that Keyser was on it back in April for seven days for personal insult. This is speculation, but my guess is that Keyser was, "Forgotten about," after being placed on the suspension list and was not reinstated for two-three weeks.

Keyser also had no posts from April 23rd to May 10th, which further supports my theory.

He and two others were indeed "forgotten about" although I don't know if forgotten is the right word. Maybe more like not a priority? Not one of them whined or complained about it either.

My experience is that a seven day suspension means that you can't post for at least 14 -21 days or more. Others have said the same.

I was suspended for 7 days for being insensative and politically incorrect, but it was far longer before I was allowed to receive PMs or post.

It simply is what it is.

I got an email from EvenBob.

I asked for his permission to repeat the entire thing here.

I told him that I am repeating this one sentence:

third. Also, added a personal attack against DJTeddybear now, too.

So, that's a story that's basically a strange attack on the Wiz, an attack on DJ, and - if the part about the commercial success of part I is true - then also a spam/commercial violation.

I'm pretty sure the commercial success bit is true, so I agree with your statement. Great catch on that forum violation.

The worst part about the first one was that the Wizard wouldn't smoke a cigarette if I offered him $100.

Okay, that wasn't the worst part.

But, geez, anyone that has read the Reviews knows THAT about him!

I'm not even a, "Fan," per se, but I enjoy his sites. I also like him, but he is not of the celebrity (No offense, Wiz) for me to use the term, "Fan."

It's really quite simple. The suspension list comes down to courtesy, and politeness.

When you're on this board, you're sort of in JB and the Wizard's house.
It you disagree with them, that's ok, provided that you are polite and provided that you don't go to far outside of their believe system. If you completely disagree with their points of view, then you are free to leave and speak your mind elsewhere, or risk offending your hosts.


Basically it comes down to etiquette. You have stay within the boundaries set by the host, especially if you're are talking about a subject that is very sensitive to them.

mrjjj gets 21 days for this post, which I consider a personal insult. 21 days may seem harsh, but he is a repeat offender, and his last suspension was 14 days. I would recommend Mr. jjj find another forum more friendly to betting system believers why he is away, such as John Patrick's site. Hopefully he will feel more at home there.

While I can see there being a personal attack there, personally I don't think that particular post, written by anybody else, would have been cause for alarm...

That being said, much like college football, you have to look at the body of work. I'll be 100% honest: the past week has been chaotic for me with work, but when I see so many posts made by such a negative poster who I've just learned to ignore, and some threads he started, I've not really paid much attention here. I like to think of myself as somewhat of a contributor on some postings, and I imagine there are others who feel the same way.

I don't believe in blocking people, because they could easily attack me without knowing, but I think if there is a current use for the nuclear button, this would be the one....

Just my two cents... back to reading, then packing...
