Gambit55 has received a seven-day suspension for personal insults in this post:

http://wizardofvegas.com/forum/off-topic/gripes/11008-dealer-begging-for-tips/8/#post183368

...amongst others.

Had it been an isolated post, it may well have been three days for a first time offense, but alas, I counted at least three posts in which he committed personal insult.

ZackG23 has been banned:

http://wizardofvegas.com/forum/off-topic/gripes/11008-dealer-begging-for-tips/9/#post183604

For creating another handle for the sole purpose of circumventing Gambit55's ban. Therefore, both Members have now been banned for life.

I named my first grand-daughter BELLE STARR. With that in mind, do you plan to name a future grandson Judge Roy Bean. ?

I expect his mockery of Nareed's new email qualified as an invasion of privacy.
The trick to poker is learning not to beat yourself up for your mistakes too much, and certainly not too little, but just the right amount.

And now HotBlonde is down. Mods, are we going to have to wade through "that" thread to find the answers? :)

HotBlonde got suspended for the "sewerwater" insult. SOOPOO's suspension is addressed here.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

<le sigh>

I had a question on VP play and a question on lost opportunity caused by taxes that multiplies effective tax rates despite the low cap gains rate, but alas, all it takes is a view of this thread to discourage any re-participation. That's okay, I'm sure I'm not missed. At least, I missed the thread titled "Hi, ItsCalledSoccer."

Mike, I have a good shot at work in town, would like to grab a bite if you have a spare lunch-hour. A few things have to happen but it smells pretty good for now, I should know something more in a couple of weeks.

Would love to stay and chat but I would rather avoid the forum drama-minefield that is gender-specific pronouns, math-proud people swallowing political poll results whole without looking hard at the underlying math, and adult members who have to be cyber-separated like children.

So how many people have now received bans/suspensions for comments in or derived from that thread? It sure does contribute to discussions in the forum; I just am not sure that it's a contribution that we need.
