I went up to Quarter machine to get my feet wet in trying something new other than penny slots. I'll try other games other than slots soon. ;)

I think you can play it for as low as 5c (or maybe 10c) at gulfstream.

Is it just me or do other people either (1) forget to bring a phone charger when traveling and/or (2) leave the charger in your hotel room?

Who was it that said, "A fool and his phone charger are soon parted."?



I did 1 and 2 many times, including laptop chargers for 1.

Now I just have a bag that has a laptop charger, mouse, USB charger, vape batteries, and a vape charger inside it at all times. Keep in mind I travel at least twice a month.

No. I seldomly leave Florida. I have only left Florida twice in my whole life, visited Jamaica when I was turning 11 and went to Mexico 4 years ago on a Carnival cruise. :)

I sort of figured that.

I'm going to throw this one out there just for the hell of it.

Since you are filling a unique niche on this board, and since many of us are curious about you (the REAL you), I wonder whether folks over the next year might be willing to commit to donating enough money so that you can fly to Las Vegas, stay at a casino for a few days, and eat some decent grub.

I'd be willing to chip in, but there is one non-modifiable condition: you'd have to agree to attend the WoV Spring Fling in 2019.

I'll donate $10 just after Nathan completes a facebook video chat with me where I get a satisfactory answer to one easy question.
Hint. I doubt it will happen.

If Nathan posts proof that she is a 4-11 200 pound female as she described herself, I'm in for $10.
Otherwise, this is getting tedious.

Soopoo is surprised to find posts from

I'm wondering what exactly he expected
to find here. No posts from Nathan?

Are you really that naive? If so, God bless...actully no, God help you.

Even an extremely abnormal poster here on WOV, no matter how ploppyish, would at least ask what the hell I was talking about.

It's as if you are purposely playing dumb or avoiding the conversation.

I could respect someone saying, I have no clue what you are talking about, or I have no interest in learning and understanding anything abount advantage slot.

I was going to add to my last post what your response should have been, but I wanted to see just how reluctant you were to follow up with anything that sounded remotely curious. You basically repeated the same thing as before.

If after this post you come up with some empty response, I have to assume you are just trolling and pretending to be ___ in order to keep your ongoing persona.

It's interesting how certain innovations turn into industries before they work.

I am pretty sure that vacuum cleaners did almost nothing for many years.

I remember even when i was a kid, most dish washers did crap. You had to wash the dishes clean by hand, then the dishwasher would put spots on them.

For a long time, home computers could only do stuff like store your grocery list.

It's like we all tacitly agree that this is a good idea and we will continue pretending it works until it really does.

Crypto might be the thing like that now.

I'm assuming that kid had Asperger's disease because he answered something that had nothing to do with her question. An ex America's Top Next Model contestant admitted she had Asperger's disease and when she was a child her Dad would ask her something like,"How was school today?" She replied,"I want a popsicle." She said she wasn't avoiding his question, she honestly thought he asked her what she wanted to eat!

I think you are confusing Aspergers with general Autism. You might want to use the word "condition" vs. "disease" as a disease would be more associated with something contracted (malaria, AIDS) and not inherited. Autism is mostly inherited, though the jury is still out on vaccinations. They probably more trigger than cause it, though.

Your first paragraph was meaningless, it's as if you missed the point as to why I posted that Video and directed at you in the first place.

Tips may come after you do some investigation on your own. You can google advantage slots, accumulator slots, bonus banking slots. You should read more than one article. I would avoid anything that has to do with beating online slots for now.

It's very important to understand WHY they are beatable and how certain machines are different from games such as Wolf Run, coyote moon, Buffalo Gold, Wicked Winnings etc. You might find it difficult to differentiate the BS from the real deal. Once you find some information that seems good you can always ask the forum if it's worth reading or its just total BS. Avoid anything that's talking about money management, hot cold machines, and voodo crap.

You need to find out what games are currently being vultured and available at your casinos. The more obvious ones are few and far between.

Since the games are not always an advantage, you will need to find out when and how you should play them. AFTER some of your own investigation, you might have to PM various members who know what they are talking about and ask a FEW questions.

If it is about slots, don't get into it at all as I don't really play them. Might be advantage play in them, but they are not my cup of tea. I was talking BJ, sports, poker, video poker, and sometimes craps. Nothing personal there. They have just been too much a money suck for me.

By far, the complaints from 3-4 people who seem to go crazy every time Nathan posts are getting far more annoying than what they are complaining about.

Props to Nathan for sticking around even though there’s a green with a bullhorn in her face every time she posts.

One week into new employment I had to take a personal phone call emergency that lasted 20 minutes

3 years later I took a second one. The boss said I had a history of doing so and he had meant to talk about it with me since I had been hired

The other employees were somewhat shocked since I almost never was on the phone particularly our receptionist who funnelled all the calls through

My point is first negative impressions are not only powerful but difficult to shake

I fear Nathan may become the most significant poster on here and she would still receive flak for the first year of her posts

I agree. I am finding OnceDear's whining and sniveling monotonous. Live and let live.



I agree also. Maybe it’s bitterness on OnceDears part that Nathan won the popular vote.

By far, the complaints from 3-4 people who seem to go crazy every time Nathan posts are getting far more annoying than what they are complaining about.

Props to Nathan for sticking around even though there’s a green with a bullhorn in her face every time she posts.



And if Nathan is a long-term con/Troll, could she be doing a better job of it? Even if she's exactly what she says she is, could she be more disruptive to THIS forum? The hapless/help me garbage she posts has her front and center daily, arguing among yourselves, flirting with insult rules, putting me (and OD, now) in the position of appearing as jerks just to keep the forum out of the sludge of the LCD affectation she spews in most every post.

Attempts to respond specifically to her requests for guidance just result in her excuses and reiteration of the garbage. Misinformed opinion is offered as fact on a forum known for debunking fallacies. The barest hint of revelancy attaches some of her posts to a thead. No improvement observable or in sight.

And you want to encourage this? Really? I believe your sympathy is misplaced, and probably gaslit.

I would love to put her on block, and not have to respond to this stuff, from her, or from others. I wish I could. I wish all of YOU would block her. Can't believe the amount of slog the last month or so with the proliferation of inanity.

... putting me (and OD, now) in the position of appearing as jerks



So, Babs, You're calling me a jerk? I'm putting you on one of my lists...

$;o)

So long as Nathan contributes 'content' to the site and is perceived as driving more traffic to the site than she drives away, I don't care if she is a made up persona, whose inventor is laughing his nuts off at us all, or whether she is a young or old man or a young or old woman. Nathan is posting within the rules, so all is good.

Nathan does sometimes divide opinion, and that is constantly under consideration... Not just Nathan. Some other members and moderators do to.

However if/ when she posts authoritative answers to newbies that are seriously incorrect and valueless, Or when her posts are ridiculous, those posts will be corrected, rebuked, ridiculed or praised as appropriate. If that's me whining or even bullying, then I can live with the label. I just love constructive criticism: Giving it and taking it. I don't have to embrace it all. No-one does.

There are a few members who like to push the boundaries, ALMOST trolling and frequently disrupting. Not a problem, IMHO. But when it becomes a problem, there are rules and there can be repercussions.

Deliberately so.
The 'content' in this thread draws responses. It draws traffic. To that end it has a value and potentially a cost.

Hasn't it been shown that soft core pornography draws clicks. Is that what this is about? Will more train wrecks boost the sites numbers? It's reputation?

Have the mods PM'ed each other on this issue to discuss whether to invoke rule 17?

Rule 17:

"Nuclear option: Finally, if the site administrators feel that a member is so disruptive to the site, even while abiding by the rules above, a "nuclear option" may be invoked to permanently ban the offender. This will be used sparingly for only the worst of trolls."

I'll cover the porn aspect later...

It's about balance and about trying to enhance the value of the site, especially to new users or lurkers who might stay lurkers because they fear getting shouted down or might contribute posts because they feel welcome.
So, we should, IMHO, lean towards being friendly welcoming and tolerant and constructive. But, yes, there comes a point where the causes of frequent train wrecks have to be rebuked, reminded, ridiculed, and eventually ejected. I seem to recall that Kentry was one such lost cause, who was eventually banned, not for any one infringement, but because he proved unable to contribute or gain more than he detracted.
Nathan's writing style has been compared to Kentry's and so far is causing the same kind of irritation in some users. I hope the style changes and she gets to stay. Time will tell.

Mods discuss many things, and consider rules constantly. I'm inclined not to comment on specific topics of PM.

Yes. Here's an anecdote if Nathan will forgive the distraction.

I used to be a business seller on eBay, selling small handtools.

One Item I sold was a telescopic magnetic pick-up tool. Bit like a selfie stick with a magnet on the end.

For the listing images and thumbnail images, I used non-pornographic, but rather attractive pictures of ladies in swimwear.

Those items got masses of clicks and watchers and a fair few purchases. If you'd searched ebay for that kind of item, my listings were consistently at the top.

Ebay never did rebuke me and the listings stayed up for years until I closed my business.

But let's not do this here.
