He was paid to do math work and game review and performance work, as it related to Sands table games and slots. No conspiracy here.

I'm paid to be here and I have to say the money really sucks. I think I'm going on strike! Or I might just quit! They will be so sorry then!

Just be very careful what you say around Paigowdan.

Any mention of ??ing or card ???????? and being ??'ed from a casino could trigger a 40 page discursive argument on this thread.

I actually did not have Paigowdan in mind when I started this thread. Dan's behavior often matches the behavior I describe, but he has always been upfront about who he is and I have never suspected him of being employed by any gaming organization to "infiltrate and influence" social media. I believe him to be a moderately successful game developer who genuinely believes in the industry that enriches him. He is anti-counting and anti-cheating but, in my mind's eye, I don't see him blindly making up excuses for casinos that are embroiled in cheating scandals.

I had several suspects in mind; one was Wizardofnothing.
So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.

Damn it Gordon!
You just couldn't leave well enough alone ;-)

No, it'll trigger 40 pages of how righteous and beautiful it is to try to fleece gambling halls for extra cash and why that is our constitution right to do so, with intermittent dissent from saying "No it isn't, - they actually have a right to expel you" and "you should have started a real career." It made for some popular discussions, too.

I'm of the opinion of neither industry shills nor AP shills at the forum.
This is a gamblers' forum. AP isn't gambling.

Thanks - I'm actually trying to persuade people to finish their D.D.S. degrees and the like instead. All that effort wasted on +1, +1, -1, -1, 0, 0, 0...

I am a moderately successful game designer and own a couple of businesses, - and I am also just as harsh on bad casino workers ("Did you see your dealer repeatedly flash the hole card while you stood there with your finger in your nose? You should be driving for Uber....your table games director selected Red Flex as a side bet?? Go to www.apheat.net.....")

Sure you can, get the snacks and beer ready, and grab hold of the remote....

And since I mentioned that there are those that one should NOT start a debate with, another relentless debater comes to mind. I think if you shot him full of bullet holes he would post from the grave. So we would solve one of the most significant and long lasting questions, "Is there an afterlife?"

I should point out that I wish no harm to the relentless, I find relentless charming at times, other times I just get tired of reading and go to sleep. I sleep a little better knowing that if/when I wake up, relentless will still be talking ;-)
