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.)



We all have those people who push our buttons, but to whom we are complelled to respond in a primal way, otherwise it just gets under our skin if let it slide. An "I gotta give him that needed jab right back" type of impulse. It creates pockets of bickering couples as part of our community: MKL & Jerry, etc. There can be a "bad marriage/relation" list formed from these pairings.

I'm often reminded of the tyke's comment about the fight he got into: "It all started when he hit me back!"

Too late for toadying, Jerry. You're neck is on the block and executioner is waiting for call from the governor, which probably won't come.



The difference, BOB, is that I'm not addicted to forum posting and I read/post for my own amusement as most people say they do but really don't. If I'm "chopped" I won't be running around with wireless, signing in as a different poster just because I can't live without it. You've already caught mkl doing that when he got stung, but in his case being rejected as an anonymous poster was like having his whole world come crashing down on him since he has likely no one else to turn to for stimulating conversation other than fresh men.

A day like Christmas to me meant Christ & family, and not rushing to see what's happening on WOV.

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

If you care to clear up the question marks in your table, here is where you suspended Jerry for seven days on 12/14/10, ending 12/21. I suppose that it is nerdy of me to care about incomplete blocks in a table. And I'm not really sure about the meaning of "members who have been suspended since 12/25/10."

As a frequent lurker, and one who dislikes the troll posting and bickering, I am glad to see people get booted. As I have posted before, the forum was much easier to read before the latest generation of posters showed up. I am not saying there should not be any disagreements. That would serve no purpose. I do appreciate reading all the different views that people have, and am constantly surprised how some topics that would seem to be binary, end up having many different view points.

I do not agree that there should be a ban on posting any systems though. Yes, most of us on here realize that there is no system that can be utilized which will overcome the house edge, but not allowing people to post their system would be a mistake. Sure the Iron Cross is a lousy system, but it still is fun to play it once in a while, and at times, it does show a profit. And so does throwing a buck down on the 6 on the big wheel, although you'll never see one of my dollars on there.

While most of the time, I find what JL has written to be a waste of my time, I have enjoyed reading the whole Rob Singer system threads. While I am fairly certain the math people have it correct, I also recall the Ron Harris scam. What was his backdoor? Bet 1 coin, then 2, then 2, then 3, then 5, then 3, or something like that. Suppose someone had stumbled into that sequence and brought it to this board as his/her system. They would have been pointed to the math and shown the math to show how wrong they were. And then out comes the news, and what do you know, they were on to something. Do I think this is the case with Singer's system? No, but I think anyone who says he is 100% wrong, is themselves making a mistake.

Thanks Wizard for the forum, and for taking steps to get the forum back to enjoyable reading again.
