For the benefit of me, as well as others, here my hall of shame of members who have been suspended since 12/25/10.

Member Suspended On Number Days Reason Suspension Ends
bjgod/blackjackgolden 12/25/2010 Life Multiple identities Death
Martin 12/25/2010 5 Personal insult 12/30/2010
JerryLogan ? 7 Hijacking and personal insult ?
mkl654321 11/28/2010 5 Personal insult 12/3/2010
JerryLogan 11/28/2010 5 Personal insult 12/3/2010
Chuck 11/13/2010 Life Insulting the Wizard Death



The list implies some kind of equivalence between myself and JerryLogan, which I consider to be the highest insult. Also, inaccurate.

Umm, no. I'd fall into your "math geek" category, but I'm also on the right side of the bell curve. I'm quite happy about that, actually.

There's a big line, however, between being on the right side of the bell curve, and suggesting that one can *move* the bell curve toward the right. Effectively, a system huckster is promising the latter.

How? You can see it shows Jerry was suspended twice and you once.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Nah. Jerry has been hit for multiple offenses. You have been stung once in what was essentially a "both of you go to your corners and cool down" episode. Plus maybe a warning, I think.

I'm still stuck on that issue I raised a couple of days ago of not understanding how both of you can correspond with me so politely and intelligently yet brawl with each other like a couple of spoiled six year olds. (And if anyone considers that a personal insult, I will apologize for it -- I just thought it described the situation reasonably well.)

Golly. Looks as if yet another poster is deliberately trying to get banned. Are these clowns all posting from the same IP address or the same MAC address?

As I said before, looks as if its going to be a tedious process.

I'm getting a new IP address late on today since I got a new card for christmas so I thought I would put the one I am using now to full use before I switch! Which means I can finally start posting on www.blackjackinfo.com again..........

Well, Wizard, when you encounter a spammer as blatant as this, I suppose that suspending and banning are not sufficient punishment. When you have his location established, I suggest you consider contacting the authorities and pressing criminal charges. That would be a hassle, but it would likely get the attention of others who would consider such obnoxious behavior.

After much though I think that the wizard is kinder than most of forum sites that block IP Addresses after little or no warnings.. So I guess the wizard is actually a King among kings by the second chances that he gives unlike many other people in his position...
