he didnt say , that statement was racist. He also didnt say you are a racist. He just said racist. As EB likes to do he walked on the line. He could have meant it either way and he left it ambiguous on purpose. He left it up for interpretation. Bbb interprets it one way and others the other way. I dont see anything wrong with the suspension.



This is the biggest joke about this suspension policy. If I say something racist that I believe in, saying the statement is racist or saying I am racist IS THE SAME THING!

In my opinion virtually EVERY post made by ams is insulting to any Republican, conservative, and especially Trump supporter. You could probably say the same with regards to liberals/democrats about MY posts. To me, the lib/dem lack of understanding of middle America is just plain stupid. I guess I just insulted 100 million Americans, probably 40% of the forum members. To me the 'personal insult rule' is NOT meant to censor my comment, or ams' as well.

You all don't think when any of the Libs write 'Im blocking Boz because he has nothing useful to say' that isn't a personal insult? And no, I'm not digging back to out them all.

I get the impression thst aside from obvious insults there is a modicum of leeway dependent on where/how etc.

Insults about liberals in the political threads are more tolerated because there are a slew of insults about Republicans in the political threads

The EB comment was different.

Political thread example.

Person A: you libs are retarded
Person B: you righties are racist

The current example we are tslking about.

Person A:
Just want to thank the wonderful Wizard. You all are so nice to me. Wonderful guys.
Person B: Racist.

Kinda slaps you in the face the second version.

First version is seeing a shocking word in an R rated film
Second version is seeing a shocking word in a G rated film

Naturally when channel surfing (thread hopping) we dont always remember which film we sre in

Ya know, all the bellyaching in this thread is starting to make me think that maybe the righties have been lying when they constantly claim that the word “racist” has no meaning anymore because it’s used too much.
Lock him up!

Is this really what this site has become? Members, baiting each other into saying something that might result in a suspension and then laughing and cheering about it? How old are you guys?

Mr. Shackleford, is this the forum you really had in mind when you started. As a longtime reader, it seems like you took this forum very seriously for a number of years, with the goal of helping everyone be better players and then somewhere along the line you stopped. You lost interest in really helping people.

Was that somewhere along the line when you sold the forum and signed the check, because it hasn't been the same since. Today this forum is just a group of people divided by their political views attacking and baiting the other side. And you have a moderator right in the middle of it all. Almost every thread goes down that path and the site has little to do with gambling or Las Vegas anymore.

Mr. Shackleford, this forum may be owned by BestCasinoBonuses, but it still has your name on it. It is your legacy. You are or were respected as one of the expert gambling authorities in Las Vegas. One of several that the main stream media would call on for gambling related stories. Is this what you really want your legacy to be?

Amen to that.
I'm currently working on a proof of concept for a possible nationwide franchise. From research, I know that one thing Angel investors look into is people's social media and this site is becoming an embarrassment. I certainly wouldn't want my name associated with it.

I lately believe that it is an Iron Law of forums that no matter what they will all devolve into political sniping no matter what. Look at Facebook. It is 90% political now. Allowing moderators in the debate does not help matters. I do have to say my participation has gone way down from the early days. Part because I do not have as many questions about gambling, so many have been discussed. But also part because the site has become too much of just haters discussing pee tapes or any other conspiracy theory on Trump. Some I had to block as talking with them is like talking to children. A 5th grade schoolyard.
