Sure enough, he said something about meeting AP's and using them for information. I have a feeling this is exactly his MO here.



Of course it was. His lonnnnng posts
were mostly about nothing, to give
himself cred as a playah. Then he
starts to pry loose bits of info here
and there. You see guys like this all
the time on gambling forums, they
don't last for long usually. It's so
bad many forums won't let you
stay unless you contribute something
useful once in awhile. By that I mean
actual money making plays. The net
is chock full of leeches.

You may think that is tit-for-tat, but I don't think that is fair.

I really wish you guys would make peace. I don't see any way how this feud is productive. (Are any feuds productive?) Kind of weird and more than unsettling how this has now spilled into "real life," as it were.



And same with rxwine and 1BB too. Things like these are partly why real "math like" discussion has toned down here, because the "math like" people have mostly quit or went to "near lurker" status because there is too much noise on the forum. Even Mike isn't posting nearly as much on gaming topics as he used to. Hell, I couldn't even tell you why rxwine and 1BB apparently hate each other. I can't keep up with it, even being unemployed with 4818 posts here.

How could you possibly beat him and his team to a UX? He told one member not to bother with any place him and "HIS CREW" were at because they had no chance.



He was solo, his crew was all back in KC. And that day sucked anyway, there were already a few other vultures there. He doesn't have any major foothold in St. Louis. STL is decent if you have the casino to yourself. When the other dozen regulars show up, not so much. And I'm not regular. I average a monthly visit.

I feel the same way- all these people come in here and I swear they don't even want to discuss gambling or even remotely related topics. Wish I could filter out all the non gambling stuff

Part of this problem is, the way the forum is currently programmed, it's the easiest to surf through the "recent thread list", imo.

The other main problem...threads that make people argue with each other get the most traffic. This isn't just a problem with just this forum though. Many people love a trainwreck. Hell, this thread is a trainwreck!!!

I do agree with that and do nit want to point out names. But I mean what would make someone want to post diatribes about why or why someone was suspended is beyond me. I have met some good people on this site and it actually has created a lot of additional income for me through those friendships so there is a great benefit for me I just think we could do without haircut stories and all
The other nonsense

Nah, I was initially concerned with his effort to fill the place with trolls, sociopaths, and just possibly disturbed people by taking issue with nearly every suspension.

Whatever he is doing, or thinks he is doing, I really have no idea.

At any rate, I write shorter posts, so you shouldn't have to read as much.

I would like to take this opportunity to point out, pursuant to the stated concern that AHigh might not be unbanned as scheduled, that I just went to Unban AHigh (only 90 minutes after the beginning of the proscribed day for doing so, Vegas time) and AHigh had already been Unbanned by someone else.

Yes, I want a cookie. Not because I deserve a cookie for doing my job and checking on that Suspension in a timely fashion, but because I've had a sweet tooth all day and a double chocolate chip cookie with some Hershey's chocolate syrup on it would be just awesome.

I think I might be pregnant.

In seriousness, though, while I forget who it was specifically...I do apologize for a recent ban in which the offender (2FATL?) was not UnSuspended at such time as was scheduled. I will personally try to be more thorough in checking the List from this point forward.

Fortunately, Kentry's current Suspension seems to be the only active one that is not a Nuke, so that should be easy to remember. And, no, 1BB, despite my sarcasm in an earlier post, I have no disdain for Kentry whatsoever. The parody was mostly just to indicate that certain posts he has had (not him, personally) come off as silly. He personally seems reasonably well-written.

So, Kentry got temporarily banned for writing the F word with literally only one letter removed. I guess that was the straw that broke the camel's back, as it really was a very minor offense as he meant the F word as in "messed up," and not derogatory and was talking about himself., but the guy was being kind of weird talking about gambling his haircut and phone bill money away and telling us TMI about his bank account. He appeared to be really naive about gambling.
Really, dude, you tried to buy a flat screen TV for only $3.99? Get out of here, you scam, con arist!

I've always thought that a warning was appropriate for a minor offense as in your case, Dean. Now what happens to poor Kentry when his next suspension comes up? He's right out of the gate with 7 days and although some have gotten less days for subsequent offenses, most see it increase.

By the way, he butchered the word so badly that I'm not sure what he meant.

Here you go, Mission. More outright lies, insults, baiting and attacks on my character. Would you like to address this? No suspension please, just a warning. Unless you agree with this post. It's for the good of the forum.
