Ace, it's been a real blast reading your reports and understanding your perspective. I'm honored to have shared ideas with you.

@zcore having had a similar experience, you know where I am coming from. In this case though, it is scary how this person is invading my real life. How did you resolve your issue?

@midwest I am humbled by your kind words. Having only been a BJ player for a few years, I have come to love the game and almost everyone I have met along the way. I gamble for fun and the social aspect. Posting here has helped broaden my enjoyment and I am sad to go.

@evenbob Thanks for all the support and I am jonesing for chauncey and soda to do their trip reports (especially since chauncey posts pics of cash then braves the boardwalk with said cash)

@ibeatyouraces Photos are somewhat incriminating and I only posted when there was a bizarre hand

@mosca "man hugs"

While I'm new to these boards I have really enjoyed your post Ace!! I really really hate to see you leave. It won't be the same without the AC reports from you. I agree with what's allready been stated. Maybe you could post your reports after the fact instead of actual time. Know you will be greatly missed!!

@mikey Thanks for the support. The issue is not real time reports at all or that would be an option (to just post an "after"-trip report.)

Ace, I can understand how you feel. I had an incident, a robbery at gunpoint two years ago that was a result of my posting on a blackjack site at the time. I know this because of something the gunman said. Your immediate knee jerk reaction is to quit posting. But you know what, I still post on several sites, obviously this one included. I read the sites because it is beneficial to me to do so, being an AP. But I post because I enjoy participating. The life of a pro BJ player is sometimes pretty isolated. We are loners by nature. And often we don't have family/friends that really understand what we do or are going through. Forums like this can provide that chance to share experiences with like minded individuals. Now, I realize you are not a professional player, but I think the same holds true for many frequent serious players that play alot. You may not have people in your personal life to share these experiences with.

Now it sucks that you have encountered a situation, as I did, where your participation became a liability for you. And one option you have is to cease that participate as you are contemplating. But, you know what. I decided I was not going to let some A-hole take something away from me that I enjoy. I was not going to let someone else dictate my life. So, I made some changes as far as not posting as many details and vowed to learn from the experience and continued to do what I wanted to do. Now, I don't know the extent of your situation. You do what you need to do. But just consider learning and correcting previous mistakes rather than letting someone else dictate your actions.

Peace to you, sir.

@kewl I am sorry you were physically threatened with violence based upon your postings, that is horrific. So how was it that you did not go with your knee-jerk reaction? How did the violent situation resolve itself? As I am not a professional player and do not rely upon gaming to live my life, the fact that this person is attenpting to affect all areas of my life from some underground lair disturbs me.

Well I think our stories probably have some similarity, but I'm sure not at all the same. Mine was an anonymous note left on my car after a close game early in my umpiring career. I had a pretty good idea who it was, but I just kept doing an honest and fair job. I eventually earned the respect of others, going on to become League Supervisor, District Supervisor, getting State Championship plate assignments for every level from 10 years old to 18 years old and finally working Spring Training games for the SF Giants.

You have to believe in your heart what you are doing is ok. If it is, don't let others that are heartless or of poor morals change you.
