So you have no opinion at all of MDawg? You are his number one fan and you have no opinion of him? How is that possible.



Siding with and believing someone is quite different than challenging, claiming someone is lying or creating fallacy and things of that nature. Assumptions, guessing and forming an opinion without witnessing what the person has done in order to throw someone under the bus is totally wrong and that is what I'm referring to.

Thread has got hijacked enough. Thank you all. We do not need it mutating into another MDawg related opinion piece

MC has his answer, so I guess we are done here.

Tic-Tac-Toe expert? Really? That seems like a negative credential, because it implies that tic-tac-toe is the most complex game that you have mastered. And a google search and 3 minutes of reading is all that is required to master tic-tac-toe.

If you click on the red box where it says "tending forum threads" it brings up a list from all of history of the most popular (by activity).

#1 appears to be "Misc Discussions" with 13253 replies.

#2 is "Trump's 2nd and Third Year in Office" with over 11k replies

You can click the below link and see the rest of the list.

It seems to be ranked by number of replies, not number of views, though it lists both.

I only read the first page of the locked KewlJ thread and lost my mind.

The question becomes: How do you handle combined threads?

If you count threads where a second thread was created (because threads can reach an Administratively unmanageable length), then 2016 Election Thread would have the most replies followed by Miscellaneous Discussion, Discussion About the Suspension List, Trump's Second and Third Year in Office and then Casino Chip of the Day.

Could we have a new topic forum, called “Publicity Whores”?

You know, like for people who are famous for being famous?

Casino life has always had some measure of a personality index.


That’s what this place has been missing.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

When this whole MDawg thing began, and no actions were taken to shut down the nonsense, I suggested that each of us with some expertise should start his own adventures thread with tales of magical wins and humongous victories. I'd do sports; Axel could do sundry and various; Mission could do machine play; kewlJ could do blackjack. Just overwhelm the forum with ridiculous tales of winning and winning and winning, all clearly nonsensical and over the top, but as a way to frame the MDawg narratives with comparable hokum. For example, I'm a big fan of hallucinogenics and dart boards as a method to handicap the NBA (an homage to Hunter Thompson, which does not always go over well here).

So I started up a thread with tales of bizarre and ridiculous winning, and was suspended for "trolling" MDawg even though I never mentioned MDawg and most everything I wrote was true.

And now we have MarcusClark, the Real One, starting up a topic that, if I started up, would be "trolling." LOL. I mean, viewed with a cynical eye, MarcusClark is making fun of MDawg while directly mentioning MDawg.

Now if Marcus were to report continual losses using MDawg's "systems," is that not poking fun at MDawg and trolling? If Marcus wins more than MDawg, is that not also trolling? Really, the only outcome can be that Marcus wins, but not as much as MDawg. Kind of a JV thing. But if I do exactly what Marcus is doing, will I be suspended for trolling? I guess we can find out. I'll have to take up baccarat.

But if you started the topic it would be to troll, right?

So . . . Where exactly is the inconsistency you are expounding on?

If we don't count actual casino play, I don't have to be over-the-top to do (almost) nothing but win (PA Skill Games). The amounts are usually just small and I don't feel any real need to brag about it. If anyone is in Pennsylvania and interested, then they can read about it in my articles. I am also on Facebook, "Brandon James," where I occasionally participate in two skill game groups and try to give people advice---like not leaving winners behind for me to snatch.

I actually had one of my better days today, and that was on only checking two places. You have to be thorough and realize that, if you're checking one game title, then you might as well check them all and at every bet level. In any event, I found a Free Bonus Game at $1.60 bet that ran better than expected. I had a few other wins. It's usually nickel and diming your way to a decent hourly, so it was nice to get a decent chunk on one play for a change.

It's almost never losing because the only way to lose is to take partials (I take 50% and 75% partials, but not 25%) and not to have a winning puzzle follow any of the partials. If you do lose, it's not very much. My long-term results on taking partials suggest that the advantage remains significant, and is probably even a slight advantage on 25% partials...but there's room for error and I don't like taking them.

If he is, in fact, making fun then he should:

A.) PM me and let me know so I can stop giving him crap.

AND:

B.) Stop making fun of MDawg because that's a pointless endeavor.

I mean, if he plays it and reports honestly, then he's just reporting what happened. Maybe he will report honestly, maybe he won't--I don't care either way. It's not to my benefit at all to go to any great lengths to disprove his reporting.
