Cartoon says the only reason people post on
the Internet is to draw attention to themselves
. That's true for many people and untrue for just
as many people. Lots of people post to interact
with others, to learn things, to ask questions.
I post because it makes me think, it helps me
to expand on my own beliefs. Hence the phrase
'self edification'.



Explain how your post calling out darkoz edifies you.

I post for
my own edification,

ed·i·fi·ca·tion
/ˌedəfəˈkāSH(ə)n/Submit

the instruction or improvement of a person




say what? is that a joke?
I don't get that from your posts at all

what I get is you're a guy who likes to lecture people on the correctness of the EvenBob point of view
you've got a picture of Trump as your profile picture - Trump is a guy who thinks he knows everything

that's your hero - a guy who thinks he knows everything

Dark oz,

How much did you make from that $10 free play?

More curious how you made your 1st $1000 from that $10 free play start

$32

Pure luck lol. Several bonus rounds at sex and the city

The 1st $1000 is a story I need to save for my book

Edit: $38 was my high and when I had dropped down to $32 I left. I was playing .50 wagers

I have heard this criticism before and its not totally without merit

There was no lateral movement I could have done that would have prevented me from the same drop in income

The best way to explain it is remember all those people who developed films in darkrooms?

What adjustment could they have made into digital film?



I know someone in this position.

Has worked in photography for 20+ years.

When the big shift to digital came, they adapted, fairly successfully, but still lost significant income.

You're right, sometimes industries just die, and there's very little you can do.

Especially with former giant Kodak Camera industry going belly up 7 years ago. Was wondering why I no longer saw Kodak Camera Kiosks. Even former giant Blockbusters Movie Rentals went out of business years ago. Being able to rent movies out of the comfort of your own home Netflix and rent movies from many stores, Redbox quickly put Blockbusters out of business.

Every post I make edifies me. It makes
me think, it makes me consider my
position. I have to weigh this against
that. I learned this in debate class
over 50 years ago. You're debating
not to wise up your opponent, that's
a lost cause. You're trying to improve
yourself, your ability to discuss,
your ability to discuss your opinion.

A person who posts just to be noticed,
or to be a jerk, is a buffoon. I forget
about a post as soon as I make it, I
don't care if anybody responds to it or
not. That's not my intent.
