I'm mostly concerned about a few buffet coupons I've got that are about to expire. But while we're at it do they generally honor expired play coupons as well?

I've heard rumors about they generally don't care about the expiration date on coupons. I'm asking here to double check.

No idea. Some of those coupons are printed in the local paper. Some are from mailers and barcoded so even the computer knows when they expire. Depends just what coupon you mean probably.

Most places are more concerned about delaying the line than making any sort of fuss, but all I can say is good luck.

Can this guy be restricted from starting threads? I like this forum but seems like he posts every single thought that comes into his head as a poorly worded question with no censure. How about one thread per week? In this case, he could have just called the casino.

He can start all the threads he wants as far as I'm concerned. I don't mind a bit.

Lol. I dunno, but if he keeps posting "his thoughts on ____" , he will be pretty easy to read at the tables

I've never had luck with expired coupons, or with pre-term coupons for that matter. I suppose it's like spotting bad dealers - some club workers either don't look or don't care. But mostly the rules are followed.

If you block a person, do the threads they start not appear at all?

I have yet to block anyone, so I wouldn't know.

No idea on the expired coupon thing either; never tried.

Nope, unfortunately the threads still show up. Worse, if a blocked person posts to a thread, the thread still gets bolded and shows up in the recent threads list (that 2nd part is a bug, IMO -- if the only new activity on a thread is by blocked users, it should not appear as having new messages)

I don't have too many people blocked but there are a few here who just insist on pissing all over everything, so having a couple of people blocked really makes the forum a lot better IMO.

Someone can be banned but restriction??? Come on, this is a free country. And we fight to keep this freedom of speech.

Agree, but unfortunately if a blocked user is a frequent poster and other people are posting it really gets garbaged up. Only solution is to block the post and risk, you know, missing good stuff from non-trolls.

Try asking the dealer/pit boss as much times as you ask this question here. I'm sure they will cave in just to get rid of you.

LOL, that might work. Or just go to that Evil Empire's "las vegas blog" and look at their advertizers who offer to print Buffet Coupons.
