It's to my understanding the wizard hates betting systems or talking about them. I would guess it's the polar opposite of what he wants his websites to have.

Other than proven, approved systems like sports, card counting, proper VP etc. Should he charge per post?

Since systems bettors often have multiple accounts, votes without an exploitation will be counted as 0.

Evidently he doesn't hate betting systems as much as you propagandize, as of 30 seconds ago HIS site still has a topic section titled "Betting Systems." Clearly he's a mensch and is open to the ideas of others-ideas that he may not even agree with. Just look at his other thread topics. The man even has a site called Diversity for Tomorrow. There's diversity at WoV also; a place for gay folks, Bingo folks and stupid folks, if you will. Being thirsty and monetizing disagreeable thought and opinion is reserved for certain members of this forum...not for its creator. Thank you Mr. Wizard.

it would be too hard to enforce, and no one would pay.

we may discount that many people do get educated by discussing their systems. Nobody ever admits they are wrong, often not even to themselves, but I think we have planted doubt, at least, in a few. We just don't get to see it. And then there are those who are just reading the threads, I think very few [without prior opinions] come away thing the betting system advocates were right.

I'd be all for the Wizard making some money, but it's a fantasy.

The systems idiots provide the only new/original content on the site. Without their drivel, all we'd be doing is looking at Ult X jackpot pics and crying about the demise of AC. We need a long-term plan for the site's viability once AC is an afterthought and Ult X goes away.

I voted no. This site has a forum called Betting Systems that the Wizard specifically designated for, as he puts it, "the mathematically challenged". Forum Rule 10 addresses betting systems and even provides a link to the forum.

If someone posts about a betting system in another forum the moderators can simply move it to the proper place, no harm no foul. I believe that's their job. Multiple offenders can be dealt with accordingly.

This is a gambling forum. Members have gambled on everything from chicken nuggets to weight loss. People just love to gamble and to talk about gambling. I don't believe in gambling systems but I don't mind reading what others have to say about them. It can be quite entertaining at times.

What I don't appreciate is seeing a member, especially a new one, mocked, ridiculed or insulted for asking a question. How about a charge when that happens?

System bettors are chronically short of money.

How's that for an exploitation? ;)
