I appreciate and salute you for your dedicationto this forum and its noble aims of educating baccarat players. The efforts you put in to record games played in the midst of real money betting is in itself a tremendous challenge. And the ?essays? (and I mean this in a most respectful way) is a great effort and sacrifice to put your experience across. By and large these experiences as you narrated are really useful guide. Of course when you narrate in the volumes you have, there probably have been instances where the message was not interpreted the way you meant it to be or there may be situations you may have inadvertently contradicted yourself but circumstances were different but not fully explained. And then critics jump on it and said ? last time you said this now you say this ...?. I can only say that your pieces have been informative and very relevant as are contributions by some others.
Stay the course Glen. I just wish those who do not agree with you treat you with more decorum. I really don't know what's their problems. But sometimes you have been abrasive yourself without provocation. But I find your articles, long winded as some of them may be, to be informative and relevant for baccarat players to stay alive on the game!! God bless"
I thank you Lungyeh. Here let me comment. I was not going to and after thinking about it, I am doomed if I do and as well, doomed if I do not in many ways.
Others are respected on here and other forums because they stand by, it is science and/or math, but not really math because math cannot work, it is my way and here is what I found (according to them). They say how smart they are and how condescending and unintelligent others are because of such and such, in other words---how people such as myself are self-exploiting jerk offs because we boast, pat ourselves on the back and we lie, in their eyes because of something they will quote, add, twist and pick apart. Yes I agree, drama and drama driven, of course they are judge, jury and prosecutors all wrapped up into one. God Bless them and so be it. It is what it is.
Have I made mistakes in the past, sure thing. Do I regret things I have said or done, of course. I have apologized to those I felt a need to and they are the ones that will not accept it because it is not beneficial to their ultimate plan to enlist others, control and be some of big swinging male member. I do not care, not one tiny bit! I do have a career, a business, family members and a pretty well rounded wonderful busy life outside of gambling and the board here, by large and far. Pretty much the exact opposite of what a few of them painted, with their own lies, demeaning ways, humiliation and name calling without real knowledge themselves of the factual truth. But whatever, practice what you preach which most of them do not and have not done. Just I am a bit more vocal, harder and outlandish, my problem okay.
The people you mention, without names, even care about how long I am on the site, how long my posts are, they read every one of them and they follow, they troll and they comment on most every single thing they claim I have, either by themselves or by proxy, plain and simple. They talk about mirrors and looking at myself, yet they are doing the exact same except in a slicker and more gentle way with the use of reverse or indirect chastising, humiliation and degradation. Practice what you preach, which they do not do.
They also claim, that I say it is my way or no way and how I chastise and demean those that do not pair up with me or see it my way. The absolute furthest thing from the truth, really. But hey, it makes great retaliation driven drama for them that they get others to believe and side with them. Once again, so be it. Hey, how many times have you seen me on the newest members Blog and posting hate or trolling to redundant messages that stand or are deleted? Yet, they do it to me. Once again, all fine.
I absolutely do agree there are some great minds here, just they are actually hard headed, condescending and exemplify exactly what they accuse me of doing, IMO. But really, it is their way or no way, etc. Yet, their answers are posted as, hard and off the hip, been there and down that, it will not work, you cannot understand my post because you have not played long enough, etc., etc., and tons of other things all along those lines. Once again, so be it. We all have different writing styles, examples, experiences, money levels, families and lives. They retaliate with claimed purpose and drive that they are eradicating an evil person which justifies their trolling, their cussing, their demeaning and lies---once again of course, so be it.
You said; "The efforts you put in to record games played in the midst of real money betting is in itself a tremendous challenge". I have and thank you. At times I enjoy doing just that and yet, I have not posted much of what I actually wanted to, because of the rude and crude comments, you post too much, you dominate the board, the board is all about you. You give no one else a chance. Which are actually all self-serving drama driven statements to provoke instead of contributing with real usable content within the general board rooms or starting one of their own Blog rooms. And, no one has to go on my Blog, which is not part of the public forum rooms and read anything, post or troll, but they do.
You said; "And the 'essays' (and I mean this in a most respectful way) is a great effort and sacrifice to put your experience across. By and large these experiences as you narrated are really useful guide". Thank you once again. I have yes. Most of the times I have enjoyed writing them and countless ones I have not because of the insults, the doubt, the non-productive and insulting comments and once again, the chastising and humiliation by only some, regardless, I have not fully came to life with additional writing because of negativity. But most noticeably, I have written about it and have admitted, I have learned and been able to self-define many things writing about my experiences, which I can only assume was my motivating force for doing the posts I have in long winded, but absolutely real, truthful and from my experiences rather than what a few accuse me of.
You said; "Of course when you narrate in the volumes you have, there probably have been instances where the message was not interpreted the way you meant it to be or there may be situations you may have inadvertently contradicted yourself but circumstances were different but not fully explained". YES! You are correct, 100%. No doubt. That has happened and writing within a Blog about reality and the game of baccarat, will appear just that way. And I am sure some of my earlier writings were either corrected later on in my own learning experiences but most importantly, I have been sarcastic and used pun and innuendos once in a while and those came back to haunt me or twisted and turned by other members on their sole mission, to discredit and post drama driven rubbish that serves no point except to be sarcastic and condescending while attempting to be the teacher, the one that magically exposed what I wrote and the investigator that proves that I lost millions, had nothing, post fake pictures, have no business, am a degenerate losing gambler and countless other things. Once again, the seemingly appearing great teachers, worthy of being the Popes assistant or perhaps even the successor to the Pope himself or maybe even a commander of an army, is certainly whom they are. Laughable, but I will agree and surrender, for sake of not having another argument on here.
But again, in Brick & Mortar casino baccarat, most of what I have written about happens on a fairly repetitive basis, just different properties and people. No one is everywhere, 24/7/365.
You said; "I can only say that your pieces have been informative and very relevant as are contributions by some others". Thank you. As far as the second part, yes I do agree.
You said; "But sometimes you have been abrasive yourself without provocation". Yes, you are correct, although some of it came from and originated between myself and LarryS on another board as well as the infamous 21Aces on this board, and I have admitted that and I do apologize for those. But yes, I have on here as well, no matter a carryover from another board or not. I put a lot of work into much of what I have written and took a lot of it personal. So be it. I have numerous articles and experiences I have never written about and really the desire to post them dwindles. Even within my own Blog which has nothing to do with anyone else whatsoever.
What I still do not understand is, if someone does not enjoy, find interesting, learn from, or anything else positive, why would they come onto a personal Blog Room and follow its author? I certainly do not go onto others intrude and infringe upon their space and never would.
You said; "But I find your articles, long winded as some of them may be, to be informative and relevant for baccarat players to stay alive on the game!!" Thank you once again, I do appreciate that. I have received at least 3 dozen PMs and/or emails from members that do not post and some that do. I have forwarded and shared some of those with Vic a while back. I have kept up many times when I felt no need to continue here, because of those personal contacts with their comments.
Thank you for your to the point post and God Bless you and your family, we go way back and we have successfully accomplished those few other things off the board (non board business) and those other people that benefited are grateful to you as well.
Thanks and I do appreciate your post and all I can say is I will try to correct and improve, Alrelax/Glen.
