I have been browsing some of the recent threads here, and a few inescapable conclusions rear their ugly heads:

1. The same people are making the same kinds of arguments with the same varying degrees of vitriol, the same qualities of logic ranging from sharp and penetrating to bottom-of-the-cesspool murky, and the same entertainment value.

2. JerryLoganRobSinger is back (of course), this time as the forthrightly named "RobSinger", and is showing the same hostility, the same skewed and often bizarre opinions dragged from the outhouse of the American right wing, the same strong reactions to being not only disagreed with, but also, not vigorously agreed with, and of course, the occasional mention of The Undeniable Truth about...something...was it fairies? Alchemy? Pyramid power? One thing which seems to have been watered down is the sheer naked viciousness that the "JerryLogan" version of JLRS so often represented. The same POVs exist, and are often just as odious, but are pitched in a less acidic way. So, a definite improvement. (Like cockroaches, JerryLogans ultimately survive nuking.)

3. No more than 20% of the threads, give or take, are about gambling. Probably because just about every question everyone could ask has already been asked and answered. Probably has something to do with the creation of so many off-topic topics.

I'll post a mini-trip report tonight about how I dragged my neophyte nephew through the coupon pits of Vegas and got him a $600 bankroll from a starting point of $0--which he being a smarter man than his uncle, he promptly put in the bank instead of gambling further :) Where did I go wrong....

I asked why you were not here when I came on recently and no one would say. All they did was belittle you. Now I see why. You're fixated on things you make up that you know torture you. I hope you do better this time.

Nice (?) to have you back, and to see that you haven't changed either.

I don't get all the haters here. I know I'm new here and all, but I've read enough of the mkl v. JL/RS posts and I enjoy it. Both guys (or all three) are eloquent, intelligent and bring an entertaining read to this, or any, forum. All forums online are comprised of all intellects, all nationalities, all religions, etc, and as long as someone is not directly threatening another member with violence or just spewing swear words one after another for the heck of it, just let it go. You don't like mkl?...don't read those threads! duh. You don't like mexican food, then don't eat it. You don't need to begin a campaign to ban jalapenos just YOU don't like 'em. Geeez, people.

Are we gonna ban Nareed too just because he has 8 typos per post? Of course not. Let it go. I like this forum because it's all over the place, and not just devoted to one topic. And we can swear without it being replaced by [CENSORED] in mid-paragraph.

Long live Wizard of Vegas and all its members!

Perhaps because this sit is not exclusive to gambling, but all things related to Vegas and the gaming industry, including casinos elsewhere.

But regardless about that, it seems like your post was designed to do nothing but ruffle feathers. I wish you wouldn't do that. Things have been nice and calm for a while.

Yeah, Rob seems to have some of the same points of view as Jerry, he's far more subdued.

Frankly, I do not believe they are the same person.

Ahhhh...more of the "Undeniable Truth"...

Seriously, I congratulate you on the relative self-restraint you've apparently shown so far. I know how difficult it is for you.

Nareed's command of English is superb. His first language is spelled almost exactly like it sounds, so you can forgive not spelling all the contorted words correctly.

As one friend said to me, What is with the English word 'play'. You 'play' football, you 'play' the piano, you 'play' instead of work, you 'play' around, and you go to a 'play'. In Spanish all those things are considered completely different, and there is a different word for each one. Incidentally in Spanish you don't 'play' the guitar or the piano, you 'touch' the piano or guitar.

Sure enough every time you have a word like that in English, it's been around for about 12 centuries. It's from the Old English word, plegian "to exercise, frolic, perform music," of uncertain origin. Opposed to work (verb) since late 14th century. To play up "emphasize" is from 1909; to play down "minimize" is from 1930. To play with oneself "masturbate" is from 1896; play for keeps is from 1861, originally of marbles or other children's games with tokens. To play the (something) card is attested from 1886; to play fair is from mid-15th century. Play-dough is first recorded 1959. To play (something) safe is from 1911; to play favorites is attested from 1902.

Play the field "avoid commitment" (1936) is from notion of gamblers betting on other horses than the favorite.

No, no, no. I'm not referring to command of the English language. I'm talking about his frequent typos, like "I paly blackjack" and "I hvae to aply blackjcak",....stuff like that. Sometimes it's tough to tell just what the heck he means with so many totally avoidable typos. He must be posting from a cellphone and it's just too tough to go back and correct all the mistakes, or as Nareed would say "psoting form a cellponhe".

Just sayin'. It's all good.
