Not angry and my rant want directed toward you. And yes, I agree, with your last sentence.

BTW, I counted at least ten insults directed at the wizard by DoN, not to mention questioning his credibility. He needed to go.



You don't think his 3 years and 9 months here count for anything? I'm not saying they do but not even a warning? As I said, not my favorite poster.

Subtract a year and 9 months from that.

Insult me in my house, and you'd be history and not invited back too. And I don't care if it's a friend or not.

Like him or not does this bother anyone?



Hell no, why should it. The fact that bannings
run your life is hilarious, though.

You make a lot of assumptions.

DoubleorNothing is Garnabby, a previously banned troll of much repute, not just here but on several other gambling boards. Garnabby made the unlinked DoN ID some time ago but posted sparingly and innocuously until the past several weeks. It took a while to suitably prove who it was, not just speculate IF it was. But I've been working on it for about a month, as DoN continued to deteriorate and earn a banning in his own right.

I fully support Wizard's banning of DoN just based on the insults contained in the criticism of him and this site. My info on the dupe ID was ready to justify the banning the same day Mike pulled the trigger. So DoN was gone one way or the other.

Let me say that I make no apologies for nuking DoubleOrNothing. In fact, I probably let him go much too long. I don't like to ban/nuke people because I don't like them so showed a great deal in restraint as he followed me around and insulted me no matter what the topic. Maybe I'm an easy target, but after he went after JB and MathExtremist it made nuking him much easier. In addition, he used implied profanity all the time, which is also against the rules.

I highly suspected he was a previously banned member, likely Garnbabby, but never had enough evidence to make that case. He at least knew how to use a proxy server. However, there was plenty to nuke him on without that.

Regarding him being a long-standing member, he was very inactive most of that time. If he had any redeeming features I might have taken that into account. However, ever post I can think of by DoN was an insult or an attack.

Finally, as I've said before, remember whose house you're in. Anybody with a modicum of manners doesn't come into somebody else's house/place of business/forum and incessantly attack the host. Buzz would have done well to remember that.

It has been asked several times how we define troll here at the WoV. Let me just say that DoN was the perfect example of one for the reasons I just stated. Trolls generally are familiar with how a forum is policed and never clearly cross the line in any one post but come close to the line in all of them. In other words, there is never one smoking gun post but the sum total of all their posts is a stinking pile of dung.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

It's a practice at GG, where he hangs out, to
sign up for multiple accounts and just sit on
them for years if you have to, then bring
them out as needed. It wouldn't surprise
me at all if Garnaby has other old accounts
here as well and you'll see him again. They
really can't stand it that the Wiz made good
money on a site they were banned from, it
drives them insane on GG. It also drives them
nuts that I'm still here, when to them, I should
have been the first one banned from the old
group at GG on WoV.

Partial quote from 1BB: "It reminds me of the time a certain member who calls herself hot made the following unprovoked comment to another member: "You're an a**hole". The response was swift. An official warning. No suspension because she was "badgered". If she was badgered what do you call this?" End quote.

I don't know how to do all the trimming and stuff. Please forgive me if I broke some sort of protocol.

The HB Challenge was my absolute favorite thread. I logged on every day just to check it out. Even got a suspension out of it. Cost me 100 bucks too. The suspension list is number 2.

Somebody needs to start another challenge. Seriously. Somebody who is way overweight could help their health and bankroll too. Come on, somebody needs to lose some pounds.

Or maybe cast the net far and wide and find a member who admits he/she is a "problem gambler."

Discuss, agree upon and implement some form of "treatment program," and take bets on whether they'll make it, and if not, how long til they backslide and slither back through the gaping maw of the casino.
