Noting the above statement, did you ever consider they left because of you?
Something to ponder.
I'm probably one of the very few forum members who is still willing to give you the benefit of the doubt to some degree. Does that mean I accept what you post without qualification or question? Not even close. IMO, many of your 10,000+ posts reflect an inability to comprehend what has been written by others (at best). This has been well documented and noted by multiple members. At their worst, some of your posts can be characterized as a blatant disregard for logic, integrity, reality and/or consistency. In general, your responses fall somewhere in between the two. Sad, really.
Maybe, just maybe..
I read this entire post at once before responding to this..
...yep, another well meaning thread that has devolved in to a shit slinging contest.
""how much better could you do if you expanded your skill
and practiced those new skills""?
Ever hear the statement ""Don't Knock It Until You TRY IT""???
Questioning the content of a post is one thing ,
that opens up dialogue and allows for discussion
I welcome that wholeheartedly .
There are those on this forum who meet every
positive post with , "THAT'S BULL SHIT"
No discussion , just simple push back as one poster
on this forum prefers to call it and he even has more posts than I do
Some on here label anything ,
"they have never seen , don't understand or
are incapable of doing" , BS
When the content of the post is "I only play when I need to"...
A logical person is going to assume that this means when you need money, you go and play craps....with the idea it's guaranteed money akin to "when I need money I go to the ATM". In this case, "when I need money I go to the casino".
Yes, I'm comfortable not "questioning the content" of that statement, as there is no content....but rather simply calling it bullshit.
How do we "open up dialogue" with someone who claims the casino is an ATM for him?
Something to Ponder?
Let's do that , let's ponder
Some guys will get on here talking about what they do
what there experience is , how they won and what they did to win
and here comes the , "CONTRADICT & CRITICIZE CREW"
to inform the world that they are full of shit
You are by far the most NEGATIVE guy on this forum
You consider any post that talks of winning , OUTRAGEOUS
and will launch immediate "PUSH BACK"
You , PROMISED ME that my first week on this forum
I stated that we go to Vegas , we play and we do quite well
You immediately labeled that outrageous and started your push back
and it has continued for 2 years
Nope , people aren't quitting because of positive posts
they stop posting here because of the
constant negative attacks on people like Dave , Billy and others
Some people refuse to post because
they don't want to subject themselves to that same ordeal
Yep , ponder that TD and be honest with yourself
I know you pride yourself on your ability
to drive people away
Its been a pretty good atm for me lately did a quick Top move this morning hit vp for couple of hundred and craps for 300.
This is by far the greatest problem you have
You cannot or don't win and you assume that
everybody suffers that same shortcoming
Although you try to deny it you think , "no one is going to win
and playing for recreation is all there is"
The FACT is there are people who are winning
I do not recall ever saying the casinos are an ATM for me
I go , I play , I do quite well , I win and expressing that FACT
just rackles you to your core
You have not figured a way to win so you deny the fact
that others have , It eats you up and what
is worse is you want for no one else to get the idea
that they too , could win
I second that list and add another reason I am here. I joined my first forum, the Usenet newsgroup rec.games.board, for the additional reason I thought some might like to hear my thoughts on some strategy board games, particularly Avalon-Hill games, that I had been playing since childhood. I also joined rec.gambling.craps to share my (presumed) knowledge of the game acquired by experience and study, migrating to this forum when Usenet basically became obsolete.
Thick skin and open ears are prerequisites for rewarding participation in an open forum such as this one (and the newsgroups of old). Those who can't take the heat typically don't last long in the kitchen. Remaining somewhat longer are those who join the forum with much fanfare to cast their pearls of wisdom upon the ignorant masses therein, but ride off into the sunset when no laurel leaves are cast before them. Others simply tire of petty bickering when it infiltrates every thread.
So it's ok for you to make assumptions about me and my play and others....but when others do the same to you----you call foul?
Once again, FACTS are opinions here when they are read by others. Saying "this is fact" does not make the statement anymore than what it is to the reader...an OPINION. The reader chooses whether to believe it as fact...or not.
You have repeatedly stated "you only play when you need to"....
A logical person would assume this means when you need money, you play craps.....akin to when you need money, you go to the ATM.
What does "I only gamble when I need to".....mean to you.
I don't make assumptions about your play
I read your posts and note what you say about your play
and your opinions of the game as a whole
Not so and this opinion is just silly
Not believing a FACT does not reduce a FACT to the status of opinion
The FACT that someone may not understand the FACT
or the FACT that they disagree with the FACT
does not change the FACT , that the FACT is a FACT.
The reader may decide in his mind that he prefers to think of a statement as nothing more than an opinion ,
that in reality however changes nothing
Read that post again , at the end of the phrase
there is a little squiggly , it's called by polite society
a question mark , that indicates that to be a question
as a question it imparts no facts it normally
begs an answer by way of response
Not in the original adage
That depends on the particular species of roach
You didn't include the entire statement
I said , "When I need to or , "WANT TO"
When you leave out , "WANT TO" you eliminate about 75% of my trips
HornHiYo, "how much better could you do if you expanded your skill
and practiced those new skills""?
QUOTE="HornHiYo, post: 227875, member: 194304"]Yes![/QUOTE]
""Yes"", Then try APPLYING IT!
I'll ask again....as I understand what "want to gamble" means...
WHAT does "I only gamble when I need to"....mean?
As you are offering two choices...."want to" OR "need to"...
I'm asking what "I only gamble when I need to"....means.
Read the original post in it's entirety
and it will become crystal clear
You delight in picking out bits and pieces of statements
spinning them and making more of them than there is
It's really quite simple
You are TROLLING
It's a simple question....
What does "I only gamble when I need to".....mean?
It's not "crystal clear" to me. It's opaque. That's why I'm asking you.
