Better watch out. I got a suspension for the B-word.

It was noticed and noted. I chose not to apply a penalty on this occasion. Fortunately, there's also no suspensions for bad spelling or grammar.
Take care out there. Spare a thought for the newly poor who were happy in their world just a few days ago, but whose whole way of life just collapsed..

Ok, If AxelWolf wants me suspended ill do it valiantly. I have to admit with my language processing disorder I often don't see the conitations behind the words that I use, just the definitions behind them. I don't want to upset anyone but unforcahnitly there are people here that will make some low bow to up set me.



Wait, no! This is so dumb. You're suspending yourself when I actually have questions that need answers. Come back! This isn't accomplishing anything. You can't do anything more to change the past then apologize which you just did!

I didnít think of it as hijacking, so much as expanding the conversation. And, admittedly, I didnít read every post in detail.

But I was really turned off by HPís expression of ownership of this thread.

Not only can you take ownership of a thread, you can take over ownership of someone else's thread that they have started about themselves.

Hell, some people get their very own corner.

I don't want you suspended(I think you would be Martingaled into Oblivion), I want OD to suspend himself for being the WMOAT. It seems that Eliot was calling a rule violation on you for hijacking, but he may have missed the insult. Or he just didn't want you hijacking a thread. Anyways, I probably should be mucking up the thread with my BS either.

I miissed nothing. Make your mind up what you want.
Oh and as to your earlier comment about owning threads: You can rent space in someone's head. Doesn't assign ownership either direction. $:o)

Where did I say you missed anything? I have made up my mind, I don't want to see USPG suspended, I want you to suspend yourself for being The WMOAT, and that doesn't necessarily have to do with this particular thread. 😋

As a competitive gamer/gambler there are only 2 types of competitive games, fair and not fair games. Now nature doesn't make everyone fair so as a game designer we design games which all the players either share the same actions or equivalent actions. Capitalism is suppose to be a fair game but often it isn't because large companies will buy out politicians to sway laws in their favor or break the law in extreme excess ( like Enron) because the cost of losing a court ruling is less than the cost saving of breaking the law. Regardless I look at the casino industry as a fair game. I don't want to be a part of an industry where Dr. Eliot can talk smack about my math skills and I have to just take it even though my math skills may surpass his in certain branches of mathematics. There its completely fair and I have the right to retaliate and talk smack about his skills or its a double standard. In the end, I don't want success from my games because people liked me. I don't even want a job but if I did I wouldn't want them to hire me because of the tax breaks they would receive because I'm registered as homeless and on food stamps and medical. Not because they could improve their PR for hiring a homeless, mix-raced native america. Not because I had a stellar personality lol. I would only want them to hire me because your not going to find the combination of my skills in anyone else & that's hard to do with an employer wanting to hiring you just for that, but as an intendant contractor that should be no problem. But more importantly, it shouldn't matter who I am as long as I don't have a terrible image like Hitler to go with what I'm selling because all that should matter is if my games are good. The customer never even gets to know the game designers, which is why I say game design is one of the least unbiased entertainment medias available, because if your a music you better also look good and have an adorable personality to sell music 🤢

So basically what I'm getting at is I don't want to be in this industry if its not fair. If I cant sell my games to casinos just purely on the merit that all my games that I publish are superior to its competition then I will just leave the industry forever. In fact I just wish that someone would license Royal Slots and give it a field test. I would put a do or die on the test and if the field test was unsuccessful then I would promise to quit the industry for good, that's how confident I am that Royal Slots will succeed, it just might need a makeover.



I completely missed the part about uspg saying he is registered as homeless? How can this be? How is it possible a homeless person is trying to sell casino games? Is this a joke? Is he taking advantage of social services? Lying is a federal offense, I should know since I work at the DHA! I'm definitely going to look him up Monday, if he's lying I'll know about it and share!
