Apparently, "soliciting." His most recent thread is gone.
The trick to poker is learning not to beat yourself up for your mistakes too much, and certainly not too little, but just the right amount.

DMSCR is banned for one week for the following Personal Insult:

http://wizardofvegas.com/forum/gambling/tables/14406-super-egalite-as-offered-in-the-uk/#post251888

First offense, but the length of the ban is based largely upon the severity of the insult, in this case.

Maybe it's too soon to expect the relevant threads to be updated, but I'm wondering why YesThereReal was banned. Now, certainly I could see the misspellings and other... uh, wackiness, but I didn't see a rule violation, at least not on the part of the banned (though I could have easily missed it), the behavior of some of the other members was to put it politely somewhat questionable.

Rather obvious trolling.

Suspicion of trolling.

I'm not attempting to defend YesThereReal or question the authority of the management I'm just confused.

The forum rule on trolling reads:
Quote: Rule 12

No bullying/trolling: Members are expected to act like ladies and gentlemen. Members may not be overly divisive or abusive to another member. This includes starting a thread only the for purpose of attacking another member. (Added 2/24/2012). This also includes threats against another member. (added 9/3/12)



So, piece by piece:
- Members are expected to act like ladies and gentlemen. I saw some ungentlemanly behavior but it wasn't exhibited by the banned member.

- Members may not be overly divisive or abusive to another member. Didn't see this from the banned either, though I think a case could be made for the reverse.

- This includes starting a thread only the for purpose of attacking another member. (Added 2/24/2012). Didn't notice this. I think the banned only started 2 threads, an intro (which should be allowed, IMO) and a rather whimsical thread about extinct reptiles.

- This also includes threats against another member. (added 9/3/12) Didn't see this either.

The "offenses" YesThereReal seem to be guilty of are: bad spelling, poor grammar, being a little (more than a little?) naive, posting a lot, but apparently not more than new members are allowed. There are several prolific posters here that meet this definition of trolling.

In summary, this member seemed to absorb a lot more "abuse" than she handed out. I understand that we're all here at the Wizard's pleasure, but I didn't think the site I signed up for booted people for the qualities YesThereReal exhibited.

The rule I invoked was #13. I don't believe for one second that "YesThereReal" was as dumb as he/she was pretending to be.

Wasn't able to press my final test, but I'm pretty sure that YesThereReal is a cleverbot.

I think it falls under the "definition of pornography" guide of know-it-when-you-see-it.
