Damn. Here I am thinking your handle is your way of telling everyone that you enjoy beverages from Milwaukee!



Oh I do! That's where the nickname originated....my name and the fact that I enjoy beer made it a good fit.

I thought you might have been a Teddy Bruschi fan...

So I'm happy to be back, and I'll try to contribute where I can.



Please don't try too hard. I supported you because I figure you will help take the heat off me and my craps 'ideas'. {:-D

Seriously though, there are some amazing math minds on this board, and I have learned much from them. Even some of the surly ones have great input at times. This board has remained amazingly free of trolls, and at times people get over zealous trying to keep it that way. Glad you changed your mind and Welcome back!

In regards to the comments suggesting that I'm a hopeless "system" believer, that I'm just like all the other "system" people who've come along before, etc... this is about as far from the truth as can possibly be. I'm a pretty decent math guy - probably not near the level of many of you, but no slouch - and I can completely comprehend the data presented. I really appreciated the valid responses to the questions I asked.

The reason I decided to ask to rejoin the forum was because once I resigned, I was amazed at the responses to the original responder. I've been on several forums, and these days it seems that many people like to ridicule, badger or annoy rather than help. When the first response I received was of this nature, I wasn't surprised. But when several people came to the defense of the "ignorant" rather than pile on, I WAS surprised.



As the "original responder" you are referring to, I'd like to apologize for any ill will I engendered. I made an assumption that wasn't warranted, which was that you were just another in a seemingly endless parade of goofballs who had done a Google search on "gambling systems" and wound up here. It seems that you are truly interested in the logic and the mathematics of gambling, and again, my sincere apologies for assuming otherwise.

And by the way, the forum members DID "pile on"--just on me rather than you :)

As you might see if you go through the utter tedium of reading some of my other posts, I do like to help people. The backstory is that there has been a long and bruising fight with one of the most prolific and ubiquitous purveyors of a nonsensical gambling system, who in addition to using this and other boards to seek converts (and customers), has posted as an avatar who is not only a staunch defender of his doppelganger, but is one of the nastiest and most poisonous people ever to infect this or any other internet forum. Also, we had a 500+ post thread about a futile "challenge" to a "craps system". So we've had a lot of fruitless discussion lately about "gambling systems", and I admit, my first reaction to your post was. "oh, no, not again".

I'd like to join you in welcoming you to this forum, and would invite you, if you get tired of gambling discussions, to browse our other threads about boob sizes, selling your soul, and the nature of infinity.

Kudos mkl for offering the olive branch. Well done

I accept the apology and I also understand the source of your frustration. I think the best choice under the circumstances would have been to just leave the thread alone and let others respond. But I also understand human nature well enough to know that if 99 people lie to your face, that 100th person who's telling you the truth often fails to receive the normal benefit of the doubt.

Also, what are boobs? I only play no bust blackjack.

Onward!

Apparently, you haven't played in the 6:5 Party Pit.

But seriously, it IS kinda simple what is tolerated here and what is not.

There IS a thread / poll about boob size and real/fake, that generated some interesting comments.
There IS a thread asking for opinions regarding a contract to purchase a soul (started by the Wiz himself!)
There IS a current thread that started as another Martingale discussion, and has evolved into questions about the nature of infinity and the universe.

Comments that [casino]'s player's program are F'd up are well tollerated.
Comments that 6:5 sucks are also well tollerated.

You just can't tell another member "FU".

Go figure.
